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)
  2. 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.
  3. The OP confirms who has the first correct guess
  4. 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.
    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
  5. 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.
  6. Multiple guesses are allowed, but must be turn about with other members and at least 10 mins apart
  7. Please try and keep it to one live photo at a time.

Can't help you there sorry - just thought it was the obvious answer. I'll let someone else get the right lounge.

In maximum four posts we should know. I can't remember what they were called, and am too lazy to Google them....

This would be pre-T5, pre-BD acquisition days. The lounge at gate 5?

Not sure why the specific location has to be guessed, considering the custom and practice of the game is airport name is sufficient.

But there is a well-established practice of offering Ďbonus pointsí for guessing extra details about a location.

Most images are general airport views where the airport name is sufficient. If an image is of a specific location such as a lounge, a correct guesser would know the lounge and therefore be able to name it
