Skimo ... at 74 I still wear 'slim' jeans/chinos. But perhaps there should be a choice of cut for "those who can and those who can't'? We all know one size/shape doesn't fit all ... like the lady [Size 22+] bulging all over the CW cabin I experienced.

But ... Is BA intelligent enough to consider different cuts for different shapes?

Or pleasing, depending upon the beholder...

The long-overdue new CW seat is what really matters, hopefully offering decent storage + privacy. And that’s what will potentially get me booking BA more often than other OW carriers.

A new uniform is invariably good for staff morale (assuming of course it meets their general approval .....) ; but it sure ain’t gonna make BA travels any more comfortable for the punters

If you feel so negatively about BA I have to wonder why you are here? Quite a spiteful thing to say, BA have some first rate staff, who really go the extra mile. I would personally think that it would be a privilege for him to design for an iconic British brand and for BA staff to wear his creation and deliver their service with pride.

@nancypants Not especially new , but if you are trying to suggest that I'm not up with the witty banter of the board, I think that @Can I help you rather missed the mark on that regard, very much read as spiteful, rather than witty fun poking.

But if you meant something else, perhaps you would care to elaborate?

My point is just that if individuals feel that BA is toxic to the point of tainting the brands associated with theirs, I wonder why they want to read and post on a forum about the BAEC? Other than to fire off spiteful oneliners that is

I hope Oswald is creative with cheap polyester.

Silk purse from a sow's ear I believe they say.

Or lipstick on a pig! For some reason your droll humour made me laugh. Anyway, for what it's worth (not much probably!) I can see it working. Good luck Oswald! (and I hope BA fund it properly)

Since you are asked I am mostly here to help people but I have my own opinions about BAs behaviour and I am happy to share it with others.
