Question Where in the world am I? | 2020 edition

Lets begin 2020 with a brand new season of "Where in the world am I?"

Inspired and originated by highlander100 back in 2015, the aim here is to truly weed out the travel geeks among us and shower them in all their glory

The winner will be awarded annually and bestowed with the true knowledge that they are a true Flyertalk BA geek.

Here are the rules and they really are very simple:
  1. Take an obscure photo of a BA location you are currently in (or have visited recently). BA codeshare locations are permitted too
  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.

The previous WITWAI thread can be found here: Where in the world am I? | 2019 edition

Congratulations to YYCCL3 who have won the previous edition of the game with 51 points and thank you Prospero for opening this thread.
I have slightly

edited the rules in order to make the game better and to make it fair as possible.
Also, the Top 10 leaderboard ( Current ) could be seen at the WIKI and would be updated by ISTFlyer daily.

The first image of the year;
BA destination and a Thomas Cook destination in 2020

The brand name was bought by a Chinese tour company - hence my guess of PVG as one of Thomas Cookís current destinations!

Tall buildings on the right side and the proximity of the airport to the city.
