I have little doubt that the seat map shown to passengers willing to pay for a seat is carefully designed to give the impression that the flight is busy and, in true BA style, to gouge as much money out of the customer as possible.

My own experiences on BA, as a status passenger, have almost always been good but I'm beginning to see how it looks from the perspective of your average non-status passenger and it leaves a very unpleasant taste.
