Might have a legitimate use for the Emirates Airline this weekend

#1

You can use your Oyster on it right?


#2

Yes. It’s cheaper to use Oyster.

I’m intrigued by this “legitimate use” though. Other than having guests visiting London and going as a tourist I can’t think why any self respecting Londoner would ever need it.


#3

Need to get to the ExCel Centre mate, this legit seems to be the quickest option for me…


#4

If you buy a dog you probably can’t take it back on it


#5

Unless there are engineering works on the DLR, I don’t think there is a single route that is quicker if you use the dangleway.


#6

Nah, not buying a dog there mate. Will be travelling from the ExCel to West India Quay anyway which will be a very routine journey.


#7

Jubilee Line + DLR is both quicker and cheaper unless you’re already on that side of the O2 when you start (assuming no engineering works).

#8

Safe, will bin it the fuck off in that case.


#9

Think you can get booze on it now.

This probably won’t sell you on it.


#10

It literally is entirely pointless then isn’t it if it’s not even the quickest way of getting between the two points of interest that it serves. Fucking hell.


#11

Good one Boris


#12

It’s like 13 quid each way isn’t it?
