I wouldn't call the BA board unbearable by any means. However all the 'oh no I'm having to fly in First Class again next week, woe is me' threads can seem a bit snooty when you mostly commute by South West Trains! They can also be a tad self-righteous about daft things like 'stealing' a packet of crisps from the lounge.

However I think the key difference from here is that they have to put up with people crashing in from other forums (or the internet in general) to complain about BA and how it lost their priceless Ming Dynasty vase/wouldn't guest their entire family into a lounge/didn't upgrade them/didn't feed them etc. etc. Hardly anyone flies bmi anymore and after almost 10 years in which we have seen modularisation, the removal of business class, the removal of food and bmibaby I don't think anyone expects much of bmi anymore (wrongly I should point out!)

The champagne thing I don't get either, although maybe bmi's terrible wine selection has blanded my tastes.
