Rules of play
The Rules are below, the main one being. Please, only one photo at a time until we have a confirmed correct answer. It makes it much easier to keep track of.
  1. Take an obscure photo of a BA location you are currently in (or have visited recently)
    • Post on this thread and add a clue (if you feel itís required)
      The goal is then to be the first person to correctly guess the location.
      • The OP confirms who has the first correct guess
        • The OP updates the win to the Wiki
          If the winner has not won before, their name is entered and the post date/time they won is added below. If the winner has won before, the date and time of the post they won is added below their name. The post number should be that of the post containing the photo (not the post containing the correct guess).
          USER NAME
          Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
          Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
          Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
          etc. etc
          • To try and keep it further within the remit of the forum, I think double points should be awarded in the event that the OP can get a BA logo into the photo without giving the game away.
            • Multiple guesses are allowed, but must be turn about with other members and at least 10 mins apart
              • Please try and keep it to one live photo at a time.

Everyone is going to feel very silly if it's some forgotten corner of LHR T5.

All guesses above is wrong.

As it has been 17 hours, I will give clues.
- The airport photographed is currently active. Not BER, not PKX, etc...
- The terminal photographed is currently active.
- The terminal photographed is the terminal that BA flies
- The airport photographed is a destination that BA does not offer complimentary meals for Y pax. The Marks&Spencer BoB menu is served on the Economy Cabin.

Oslo was guessed earlier and I'm sorry that it's not the correct answer.

Next hint: 6 hours later

The train sign says ICN which is a type of train in Switzerland. It is not ZRH and BSL airport has no train station, so I figured GVA. What else could it be?

The photo is from the terminal so you don't have to look for a train station at the airport. There may be one or not.
By the way, it's not GVA, BSL nor ZRH.
