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.

Another very easy one for most: extra kudos if you can name the airport AND pinpoint my location when I took the photo...

Gate N64?

Edit: HKG airport website lists it just as gate '64' - Google Maps refers to 'N64'

I've got a few almost identical photos sitting in what appears to be the same seat!

Something makes me want to say LHR T4 but I am second guessing myself. Anyway, I will go with LHR and standby for embarrassment when I have got it wrong

Definitely looks like CDG to me - perhaps from the Sheraton or thereabouts?

Although florens got it first, you got the location narrowed down even further

Grrr the red and white coloured lighting poles were persuading me it wasn’t LHR but I went for it anyway as I got EDI correct in the 2018 thread after a substantial amount of time had passed without anyone correctly guessing EDI. I thought it was a little too obvious as being EDI so couldn’t be so!

Am suitably embarrassed it wasn’t LHR

How about this one then? I have carefully deleted my travel from BA97 to prevent cheating!

PSA? Just because it looks as if it's leaning.
Ghastly looking structure wherever it is.
