    Cool flying

    Hi again,

    Which one is correct:

    "Thank you for flying with British Airways"?

    OR

    "Thank your for flying British Airways"?

    I can see both on the internet, so I'm getting confused.

    Thanks
    W

    Re: flying

    Good question - you're observant.

    They're both fine. The second is idiomatic, a kind of short-hand, but correct.
