Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers -------------------- Start of message text -------------------- +1 to all that, also assuming that he's not a known terrorist, war criminal or other desirable. Make sure he doesn't stay on a farm with contact with animals in the weeks before travelling too I've never had a problem, even when I admitted that I'd stayed in a B&B in County Durham 2 days before travelling at the height of Foot & Mouth. I expected to be hosed down with disinfectant at the very least, but no - waved right through.

If I was him, I'd buy the ticket and then phone the airline if there's any other questions --------------------- End of message text -------------------- This e-mail is sent by the above named in their individual, non-business capacity and is not on behalf of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
