Well, if that's true, then we really should be marking their passing....but I'm quite not sure how. Any suggestions ?

You'd have to find somewhere that what's on the menu and what other diners are eating bears no resemblance to what your waiter says is available, and also somewhere that uses a random number generator to tell you what the final bill was, whilst refusing point blank to give you a breakdown or receipt....

(So basically any tourist trap curry house will do....)

... but I have always found that it helps if you order the main course first. Then the first side dish, then another, and another - until you have a nice little dish put together

And after you've had your starter they serve your dessert and tell you that your main course had been moved to the previous day?

In the unlikely event of me fathering a child, I may just give them the name Dennis in honour of the most famous ICC employee.

I can certainly help you with that, sir!

Oh, no, wait... you're a bloke too.

C'mon you never had it so good - wait till you call Avianca, you'll long for the cool efficiency of the ICC ladies.

They (the ICC) actually improved considerably over the last two years. Quite sad.

I actually wish BA used the ICC contract to provide cover web the BA call centre is closed. I'm still disappointed that BA is not 24 hours which is strange for a large global carrier.

I have used skype to call the 1-800 number in the US when the BA UK line is closed, with great success

Err..just wondering if I misheard, and she said the Call Centre will be discontinued THIS Friday, not LAST Friday. I called them today about a ticket issue, and I think it was an Indian person who answered...
