I've booked lots of tickets through Omega and never had a problem with them, but equally have never needed to make changes so can't comment on how they handle those.

This particular fare is not available directly from BA.com so if you want it you'll need to book through a TA.

I'm sure there are plenty of OTA's who are excellent/very good but as a leisure traveller I just book mine usually direct with the airline if I can. I'm extremely fortunate as I can travel outwith peak periods and when I want as I work for myself. Plus there are limitations if you use one and have mixed carriers and then you can't UuA but I have used Trailfinders amongst others before a few times and I found them to be excellent, professional and wiling to help

Thank you. This gives me some confidence. It's a purely elective piece of travel so I don't anticipate any changes.

Booked through Omega. Added booking in BA app and it appears fine. Could select seats too so feels legit.

Thank you MIke. And it seemed from your earlier post it booked into a decent earning class for avios (im not too bothered about the TPs).

Out of interest, if you are still up, which of the fares on the booking page did you go for. What I mean by this, is that the same fare appears on my one twice. One with the word (standard economy) on the right hand side.
They appear to be the same fare (same flights, same price etc)

Thank you to all for the quick responses. I really appreciated that. I took the plunge and booked with Omega.
I hope to get a booking reference soon so I can look at the booking.
Confession time, after many many flights I never managed one in WT before on long haul! so now i need to read the seating thread....

I booked into standard economy not basic!
These fares book into 'B' inventory!
