I think we can safely apply the same exacting total honesty with which BA handles flight delay compensation claims!

I just witnessed a Dad take about 9 packets of crisps in two hands from GC LGW.

I guess he will be hungry ?

(Side note: the champagne on request is chilled to perfection and going down nicely!)

Back when the muffins were available, I once saw somebody grab all of them, except for 1.

I can only imagine how generous he thought he was leaving that last one there for someone else.

I wonder if he lives on Drury Lane...?

Honestly though, they give us a combined 46kg hand baggage allowance (main plus personal item) and then wonder why the Heineken needs frequent restocking

A young lady brazenly liberated a full unopened bottle of cuve louise from the CCR a moment or two ago. Unclear where she got it from but beats 36 cans of beer for sure 👀

Bag of chips + 2 cans of soda water before every flight.

250ml of bottle water on a 2.5 hour flight is not enough for hydration.

Walking out of the lounge with it?! Now that is brazen.

Always take a screwdriver. Difficult to remove the departure monitors without one. A sofa is probably over the carry on limit however.

Quite agree. Easy enough to take an empty reusable bottle through security and refill using the water fountains though.

Yep.. I sell software to factories so often spend way to much time in one that is doing metal work or a clean room or god know what else and spend 4 hours + on the floor... Pretty sure I will survive my LHE-HEL-VNO on Monday with a cup of tea. Also no need for me to have a bag of crisps as well.

There were unopened ones on the terrace for afternoon tea 2 weeks ago. I didn't even think of taking one...

... but now...

That's what the crew call button above your head is for.
