Social media tends to be a haven of DYKWIA's at times. Spotted a lovely chap on BA's LinkedIn earlier spitting feathers about being a Gold member yet not being allowed to take both his wife and 16 year old son into the FLounge at T5.

"Well done BA" says the 'CEO' who doesn't bother to properly read the benefits and terms of Gold membership and shows it off to everyone while trying to be smart...

Dame Joan Collins bashing BA on Twitter

Apologies if this was posted earlier, I couldn't see on my phone that it had.

I have just just seen a tweet from Dame Joan with a picture of her boarding pass lamenting that not only have BA removed her Premier status, they now no longer use her correct title.

WW and AC don't escape her wrath either

I totally see the point of putting this in another thread, the phrase "DYKWIA" doesn't really scratch the surface here, does it?

She was given a Gold card though, or should have been.

Maybe a DYKWIA, but you can guarantee it'll be all over the press tomorrow. What are BA playing at?

If booked through a TA and they didn't take her exec no it's likely they also missed the "Dame" option??

Will the Daily Mail / Express readers give two hoots who booked it? Is the removal of her Premier status that had really annoyed her.

BA's twitter reply does say the TA didn't properly input her title, so yes, it sounds like it was a TA booking.

From what I'm told by the Gate Supervisor at NCE, she had a moan at him about it too - and he told her it was nothing to do with them, and to call BA!

Sadly she tweeted a very different Cruz. Albeit maybe that might not be a problem as the real Cruz at BA would have blocked her anyway...

...In other news a random guy with a similar twitter handle to Alex Cruz is going to be impressed and baffled all the same time that a Dame has tweeted at him!

Shame she got both Twitter addresses wrong. Maybe her flunkeys weren't around to explain how Twitter works.
