How do BA decide which destinations deserve to get a lounge, and which don't deserve such an honour ?

I suspect this may be a better topic for the lounge access thread or a new thread rather than embedding it in a UK domestic flights thread. Its quite far off topic

Its 20 years since I did the EDI-LON run regularly stopping at Charnock services on the way.

Good times but I suspect my bones might creak a bit getting off nowadays!

Not to mention the crazy drinking sessions on those buses....worse than a BA lounge!

Your memory may also be a bit suspect as certainly would not have been with Megabus. I was a regular in the Newcastle/London National Express 20 years ago, commuting almost weekly between the two.

So no feed back yet on how this is impacting DOM travel?

Yes National Express of course.

Is there something in particular you are interested to know?

I have posted a review of the Club Europe service (MAN-LHR-MAN). Rather than double-post it, it can be found in the dedicated http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/briti...l#post28118545 topic.

Thanks Tobias, interesting read. I was wondering about the reduction in seating impacting availability, service levels, boarding etc... I.e now it is "Live" how s it working out?

I've just been upgraded out of BHD tonight. Luck or teething problems? I think two others were in the same situation.

gw76 Apr 2, 17 12:06 pm

i wonder if that will become reasonably common, with rammed Y cabin and 2x2 even number format regardless of number of rows means there maybe unfilled seats in CE.

scottishpoet Apr 2, 17 12:14 pm

I am sure it will happen, just as it does on other European Short haul routes when Y is overbooked

Surely it will be exactly the same as any European flight?

Skipcool3 Apr 2, 17 1:32 pm

Genius, If there are for example 12 rows of club, that would mean 24 fewer seats, and many of the DOM flights I catch were full before the change. I know the Airbus aircraft are being densified, but in the interim a significant reduction in DOM seats. Ok that may push up yield.
Is Domestic boarding easier? (It used to be a scrum) What is the reality? I am sure locker space will be better now.
Is there any thought about making the first three rows better as there is no need to convert them to the (old) domestic configuration?

I've just been upgraded out of BHD tonight. Luck or teething problems? I think two others were in the same situation.
As they've effectively taken a lot of available seats out that were previously available for use, this has resulted in Y class being oversold on nearly every flight resulting in lots of upgrades throughout the Domestic network.
