I'm on the second flight, but I think the same may be happening.

It looks like the aircraft has been neo-ised in addition to the row shift. It was the only one of the four GIB flights at the weekend that wasn't showing an A320neo but now all four flights are, so be careful which Y row you go for instead! I want my console table back .

What is happening because I would imaging that if we want to get in almost anywhere we will have to book.

I'm rubbish at technology these days (I used to be a whizz mind) Just voted - I love Biancas (used to work in the bar there back in 1984). Ate there a couple of times last year and never been disappointed. Gauchos is also great.

Incidentally, for those staying on on the Sunday night (we can't unfortunately), there is a concert in St. Michael's Cave at 19:30 entitled "Unconquered - A Musical Extravaganza" featuuring the Massed bands of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment and the Irish Guards with Tenor Wynne Evans.

A concert in the cave is always something special. The acoustics are better than the Royal Festival Hall!!! Tickets from https://www.buytickets.gi/events/unc...rhzjmkC6bs8X7A

Oh dear. Read some horror story of failing service on another 12-row Club cabin. Lucky us going on the later flight, where "only" 8 rows are assigned Club.

CRIKEY!

I paid 123 for my return LHR-GIB in Y. Thought it might be nice to upgrade to CW... took a look in MMB and... 469 out and 445 back... 885 both ways!

That is a lot!

I paid 363 for CE I think it was available on both flights all combinations for return for around 170 in the sale at some point, never more than 200.
