Short summary for those who don't want to waste their time reading all that prose: Paris is crap. London is the best. UK is the über country in Europe. Long live the Queen! Rule Britannia! And give us back India. Now.

Yes, Monkey is back.

^ Although I agree with every word you attribute to me (except perhaps the thing about demanding India back) I nonetheless think you are over-reacting my dear Bris. I'm sticking to the facts and the arguments here and generally being pretty civilised. I think the reason you hate me so much is that you know that many of things I'm saying are true.

Nobody hates you Monkey-do. Don't imagine you're that important to people. It's more like people have great fun watching you making a fool of yourself and your country.

Langur, don't forget that the French High Speed Train took approximatively 15M pax out of the Paris Airport/Year. In England they have poor train and unsafe railway system. So in this case Mr Langur England is far away from the France. So not everything is bad in Fance.
So without the TGV CDG should be very close to LHR.

lhr will not gain massively more passengers because of a new terminal. what lhr needs is a new runway ... that will create new capacities.

Quite right. And the third runway at Heathrow looks extremely uncertain due to massive opposition from local councils and residents.

Without a third runway, not only should Paris CDG overtake London Heathrow within 2 to 3 years, but Madrid Barajas should also overtake Heathrow in the early 2010s if its curent growth continues.

Of course, all the airports of South-Eastern England combined will still have more passengers than all the airports of Île-de-France combined and all the aiports of Castille combined, but what people generally remember are single airport rankings and not the sum of airports across regions. So in a PR sense ("hub of Europe" and all that propaganda), the fact that Heathrow is overtaken by CDG and possibly also Barajas will have consequences.

brisavoine is a well known for nationalism in threads that should be neutral to it.

To brisavoine: it is entirely dishonest and despicable to be quoting posts from other threads and pass them off as made in this one.

These comments were made in the Spanish forum, as such, they were appropriate in their celebration of the success of the Spanish aviation industry.

You however have yet again in an INTERNATIONAL part of the forum attempted to put your incessant and childish gloire pour la France nationalism into a thread that should be neutral to it.

Ok, so it's perfectly fine for forumers from all countries to celebrate Madrid Barajas's success, Heathrow's new terminal, Beijing Airport's spectacular growth, you name it, but to celebrate a French achievement is of course "nationalism". Go figure.

Xote, I understand you're very young, but still that's not an excuse for inflamed messages and character assassination ("XXX is well known for YYY"). Now back to topic please.

Talking about the aviation industry of your country in a positive light is appropriate of the local forums.

Dragging every thread in the INTERNATIONAL section back towards glorifying the French nation is rather different.

To be summed up even more perfectly:
