Well we are all beautiful in someone's (or even Someone's) eyes. But on that note, I need to welcome you, ceothatneversleeps, to Flyertalk. Welcome to the BA board and please continue to contribute here. Should you see me in CCR - I am the one with the black coffee mug - by all means come over and say hello.

MF will operate routes to ATL and YUL, while EWR returns to Worldwide fleet, as of 1 August - further transfers likely.

FCO 767 service will also be operated by WW.

I can't wait for EWR to come back… I did the last WW operated EWR, which was only a few weeks ago, and I am missing Target, the malls, Marshalls, DSW and Bed Bath and Beyond already…

EWR is ok, just pleased to see the back of ATL, we are getting EWR back as one of the flights from August will be on the B767.
I will miss YUL.

Oh good… I should be OK till August… I stocked up on Americana when I was there.

I won't mill YUL in the slightest. One of the most disappointing places I have been on WW.

I got a pleasant surprise when I was greeted with the hats at ABZ yesterday.

Seems it suits us allround

LOVE Atlanta and have always wanted to see Montreal!

Route swaps help keep things 'fresh' for all concerned

Kind regards

So I have to ask, what is it about Atlanta that you like?
I will say that most of the customers on the route are delightful.

Not to join the MF is worse than/better than WW, I experienced the same as the OP on my flight from SIN to SYD. My request for an another cup (yes, flew WT) of water was answered with a "Sure!" but completely ignored even though at that time there was a bottle of water on the cart!?!

Glad to report though on the return flight my request to fill my empty water bottle was cheerfully carried out.

CIHY for me personally, I always thought there was just a nice feeling to ATL. Weather good in summer months, lovely outdoor park not too far away, outdoor eateries/bar for an evening, easy train system with decent mall, short transfer time, shortish flight times and generally straught forward flights. The hotel is pretty plush too (though did prefer the previous one).

Whilst EWR was a nice trip too, and a short east coast (which are very popular on MF) for some reason I much prefered ATL.

As for YUL, never been so looking forward to experiencing it!

Hopefully we'll all be happy with future transfers ^

Interesting comment, my husband did the same thing from SIN-LHR in March on the A380, and got very short sharp shift from the WW CC member. We have found MF to be extremely helpful, polite, and have given us outstanding service on all our trips.
