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.

Ha! Too easy! We’re not staying there, but took an airport shuttle bus out to see it yesterday evening and sat on the wing with a couple of glasses of wine.
(Would you mind updating the wiki? I struggled to post the photo using my phone.)

Wiki updated.

I have never stayed there, though the colour of the engine cowling, and clearly being in the grass somewhere made me guess.

Must be a nice place to while time away with a glass of wine in the Swedish spring. Except for the Swedish wine pricing....

Yes, it was a lovely evening. But youíre right about the price of the wine!
(Totally unrelated, but the Radisson Blu at Sky City is displaying an award that bears an uncanny resemblance to the Game of Thrones White Walkers spiral symbol. Should I be worried? )

Gosh how infuriating! Surely someone would have remembered those hideous chairs! I did a google search "modern wingback chair in airline lounge" and even though some pretty awful images came up, these particular grotesques did not show up.

I was initially tempted down the German route wondering if Audi had subsidised something, but the olympic symbolism has me looking further afield and I reckon that this is part of a build up to Tokyo 2020

My pitch is therefore for NRT

The rings are more audi than the olympic rings ( the olypmic rings are 3 above and 2 below) so I will go for somewhere in germany

FRA?
