Haha... sounds like we'll be bringing the class to Covent Garden.

I really hope it's not a disappointment - the current app stinks. Fingers crossed!

For those attending the 1pm event see you there. You'll easily recognise me - by the Mod standard issue firefighting equipment.

I'll see you tomorrow as well then - I'll be looking slightly holier than thou with my UK BA card, but I'll match you on everything else

Apparently drinks and nibbles are being served - hope they are up to T5 standards

Just to avoid being flamed - I was merely trying to be ironic about the Eurocheat thing - I am actually a fully paid up member of the UK Exec Club - well for now at least .

And looking to forward to meeting you too, Nicci.

Will do, thanks. Perhaps you could also help us FT-ers find each other, if we come and say hello? Short of actually wearing FT luggage tags on my ears, I'm not sure else how we'd do it!

Had I known that I would have opted for the evening rather than the afternoon session

Any feedback from the 1pm guys? Interested to know what to expect. The invite is pretty vague!

It was quite interesting. It was a nice suprise to be greeted by (I assume) cabin crew in full uniform on the way in. Then there was a talk about the future of smart phone applications, some hands-on time with the new applications, and then an opportunity to give some feedback on the apps and what you want to see in future.

And a little goodie-bag always helps too :-) Well worth a visit.

It was great to see some familiar faces and to meet Dilly in person, he is really a star.

After some wine and nibbles, we had a short presentation on the new apps and what is coming soon. Apps for the Android and Blackberry are behind what is about to be launched for the iPhone. The new apps for iPhone are quite exciting. We then had demos from the experts in small groups, and got to see how this is going to work. The iPhone looks great, simply log in to your EC account, and you will see your upcoming flights, which are synched with your calendar, you will be able to check-in very easily and see your BP on your phone, which is going live from Monday on LHR-EDI route. Timetables and existing bookings and other stuff is easy to see. Looks great.

We passed on quite a bit of feedback, some useful comments I think, which they are keen to listen to. Finished off with some nice sandwiches, was good to meet a number of BA's IT and PR/press people, great hospitality, well organised, thank you to all involved.
