Indeed.

Also, your BA seats were likely blocked by the BA super computer due to your status, rather than a lounge agent - it's a nice perk for status holders, especially with their high density seating and the fact the A380 seat dividers can be down for a l-o-n-g time (usually down when the in seat power is off, which covers the time circling in holds and taxiing on the ground - which can be high at Heathrow!). Best part of the Emirates new suite has to be the temperature control - how hard would it be for other airlines to add this in?
Thank you 710. Good to know about BA blocked adjacent seats for elite. Don't think wifi was broken and AA CS confirmed. The aircraft was a equipped with Gogo's land based system so no service to Hawaii.

The Residence had the opportunity to introduce this. Anyone know if their bedroom has temp control?
Agree that it's not going to happen any time soon. I don't believe that EY's Residence has climate control since it doesn't have floor to ceiling doors like the new EK First. I guess the bedroom could since it's enclosed. Not sure.

We have done Petra & Wadi Rum. SPECTACULAR. Was during winter but was still very hot. Your photos are better. How can we appeal to the Princess to let you have longer Hall Passes?
A beef with you...if I knew you were going to be at ORD, would have loved to host you.
Thank you HMPS. I was pleasantly surprised about how good my BA food was. If I overnight in ORD, I'll let you know for sure.

Thanks so much thefilipinotraveler. Glad to help. Enjoy your CAI-HNL run.

Thank you The Viking. Agree about the lack of quality with much of the rest of the LH wine list.
