What it's meant to be saying is that my posts reflect my opinion, my understanding of facts and my knowledge only. Nobody can take them and go to, say, Cruz and claim that one of my posts is BA's gospel. Suppose I said BA's going for the Solstys seat, and suppose that a newspaper picks up my post. Then it turns out to be something else. That newspaper can't go to Cruz and moan that "user 13900 said it was the Solstys and now you BA made us all look bad" and demand compensation or whatever.

@13900 many thanks for your many informative and valued contributions to FlyerTalk. It's because of people like you who are willing to share snippets of information that makes FlyerTalk thrive. Never feel the need to justify yourself, just know that the vast majority of readers genuinely appreciate your contributions. We realise you (and all the other active BA employees) are unable to share everything you know about the inside workings of BA but what you are able to share we find very interesting and informative and we truly appreciate you taking the time and effort to share.

Thank you

Given a typical BA CW cabin. If you compare this exact same space to a cabin with the Vantage XL. Does this reduce capacity? Looks like it might.
Probably a slight decrease. Comparing the Delta 777 layout to BA, DL get 28 seats between doors 1 and 2, BA currently have 32 J in the same space. Of course galleys, toilets etc differ so BA might be able to get more seats in that space by moving things around.

The bolding above has just made me burst out laughing on the Tube home.

Funniest analogy of the year there for me!

Understood. I was struggling to square it up but that makes sense.

Youíve now also sent my mind wandering about the average number of used condoms on a montainside.

13900,
I once had a girlfriend who fancied me using a condom in an avalanche.
Although she had an amazing figure, I avoided ski-ing with her.

Well well, it's great to see that my skill in analogies strikes a cord with you all!
