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 it’s 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.

Well done Hiddy I did say I thought it would be easy but I thought that back wall in the lounge wouldn't be too obvious. Will update the Wiki

In which lounge in the world can we get a little bit of a literary input while waiting?

How about HND? They have a sort of library there with various exhibits so I wonder if these books nestle there! By the way, volumes 1 and 3 seem to be out on loan, are they a good read CPH?

Ganz schön fantastic, wenn Sie sehr gerne schlafen möchten..

Haneda's Red Suite is not a bad guess But it is not the right guess.

Not AUH.

A few hints is probably in its place. It is a BA destination, the language of the books is a red herring, the lounge is operated by a partner airline, and not the only Oneworld airline to have a lounge at this airport.
