This is what we've done to DUB flights in CE



Saw someone else mention 12 rows of CE to CPH but this was the best I could come up with in my bookings over the sale dates... (several months away, I might add!)
I will need to look out the yellow FT tags..!

Twice last year I travelled in this cabin as the only person in CE. Now it is rare for there to be an empty seat in the first 4 rows.

I came back from DUB on 17th Jan and CE was at least 8 rows, maybe even a couple more, all full. My only other CE experience was to JER where it was only 3 rows and I thought this was the norm, so finding what looked like half the flight in CE was a surprise.

That is quite the thing! My recent experiences have been a mostly empty cabin going to Dublin in the morning on my last leg. I wonder why that is....(and of course already mentioned in another thread!). Flight to LHR the other week was relatively quiet as well, but i suspect that is because it was outside the sale periods, just like i am sure my flight on sunday will be quiet going by the US met up thread where it is little old me this month off on a jaunt!

CE on my OSL-LHR is 12 rows on an A320.

Max I've had on DUB is 8 rows.

Yes my lonely experiences were early morning LHR-DUB after an overnight LH. Maybe a good few pax didn't find there way through flight connections and got stranded in LHR .

My OSL-LHR is 8 rows at the moment on a 320, and my LHR-OSL is 4 rows currently on a 319. We might be the only ones in CE on the latter flight at the moment though, the loads didn't look that busy when I checked it the other day.

LHR - DUB in August is currently 4 rows with only Mrs P's and my own seats reserved - the same applied to the return sector on Sep 3rd.

When you say a couple of months, presumably after St Pats day?

Possibly a sporting event team booked in?

Ha ha, nailed it!

I know it's just random though, I have other bookings where the cabin is pretty empty. Just surprised that there are no seats to select this far out: I guess that they are all full fare J or status holding FTers...

12 rows to RAK tomorrow, with only five spare seats at check-in, almost certainly due to the 150 CE sale. I have no doubt BA will claim, probably rightly, that they've got the numbers right given I'm sure most of us wouldn't have booked at full price.
