Any mention of Avios / financial compensation by the crew?

Even if it wasn't mentioned, you should still be entitled.

Not at the time of posting - the flight hadn't even completed boarding!

First on 777

Hi all,

I have an upcoming F trip on the 777 and when selecting the seat map it appears that 3/4K does not exist as per the picture below. Is this my browser throwing a wobbly or is this something else?

No that's correct, this one of our long range RR powered aircraft and there are only 12 seats in First, 3K and 4K have been removed to fit the flight crew rest area.
If you are travelling on you own take 2K quickly.

Great, thanks for the information! Indeed 2K looks good to me

First with children on 777

I will be travelling with my 2 kids (11 & 9) on BA165 to TLV in July.

As usual there is currently a choice of any seats except 1A & 1K

I'll be in 2K (best seat in my opinion)

I'd appreciate members thoughts & opinions as to whether to take:

2E, 2F & 2K which will put us all in a row, but will mean it'll be harder to keep an eye on the child in 2E and that child will have different FA attending to them & their needs.

or

2F, 2K & 3F which will mean we'll share the same FA & be served in order. This would leave each child potentially next to a stranger, although there's the partition screen if the person in 2E or 3E isn't keen on children. I don't mind the kids being next to someone but perhaps the someone will be less keen on having a child next to them.


or 2F, 2K & 3K - share same FA etc, 2 windows and all on same side. Just one kid next to another passenger

I should say that my kids are usually extremely polite and well behaved (I've received praise about it from other passengers when flying in the past) , but I know that other passengers flying in First can be very disturbed just by boarding and seeing children in the First cabin, and I don't want to unsettle any fellow travellers.

Thanks

I wouldn't worry about a child next to another passenger as when the screen is pulled it becomes a single seat.
I would go for options 2 or 3, whichever you prefer.

Put a kid in 2K, you in 2F and the last kid in 2E. You miss out on a window, but its the only way to keep an eye on them all.

Best seats for a couple in F on 777?

What are the best seats in F for a couple on the 777? Currently have the middle pair in row 1 but mrs accajl is concerned she won't be able to see me! Would a window and aisle option be better for interaction?

Middle pair would be easier to interact compared to across the aisle in window/middle in F.
However you can always use the buddy seat to converse and eat then return to your seats, so being on the same aisle side either window/window or window/aisle may work better.

744 First Class with 19 month old

We are traveling from SFO to LHR in November 2014. It will be myself, my wife and my very calm 19 month old (in November she will be 19 months) Currently we are in seats 4e/f. I am wondering if that is the best set up. Should we change it? Please let me know your opinions. Thank you very much.

I'm flying on a BA Companion Pass on a trip to the Olympics and had a couple of questions if someone could assist.
Two male friends so not important to have to communicate.

EWR - LHR
777
First 3A 3K
EWR - Access to Galleries Lounge, Terminal B Gate 50
LHR - Terminal 5 Access to Galleries Arrival Lounge after customs

LHR - IST
767
Club Europe
LHR - Terminal 5 Concorde Room to the right after security.

DME - LHR
747
First 4E -4F
DME - Navigator Business Club, second floor international departures
LHR - Galleries Lounge, Terminal B Gate 50

LHR - JFK
747 2K 3K
LHR - Concorde Room to the right after security
JFK - 22:50 arrival

I have a 6:30 flight the next morning. Everything shuts down at 22:00?
Is there USA to call and book spa treatments/
Is there a fast pass through immigration, and where.

Thanks, once in a lifetime opportunity to fly F

Are your connections at LHR same day? Just curious why you seem to be planning to go landside after your EWR-LHR....you can get a shower and breakfast at the Concorde room, and won't have to clear immigration.

If you do stay airside, note that the CCR is all the way to the right along the hall ...as far as the next security section....keep walking, without going down any stairs and you'll get there

If you want a bath tub, then you need the Arrivals Lounge

Yes, there is Fast Track Immigration assuming you do not hold a EUropean passport. You should be given a card on the plane.

THere is a US YouFirst number i believe, but my flight is "go to gate" so can't hunt for it....have fun!
