Who needs a BA lounge?

Not me! POD parking, straight through security, nice breakfast,


walk through passageway that seems to have been reserved solely for me,


and straight on to the aeroplane. Now awaiting deicing.

Oh, and I have the exit row with the middle seat vacant.

I thought for a moment that the little Wilkinsons jar was marmalade and I was trying to imagine sausages with marmalade! Im properly awake now so can see it more clearly!

Looks significantly better than anything available in a BA lounge

Reminds me of getting on board an AA flight at the pointy end with my (then quite young) children excitedly settling in to their A330 J seats and one of them turning round proudly holding up a bottle saying "look, Daddy, they give you free water!".

The gentleman in the row behind laughed and I laughed and my wife laughed and oh how we laughed and laughed....
Kids....

Wonderful.

I am still waiting for a reply to my complaint about... BA's complaint form, which refers to the meal in Club/First as a 'free' meal, rather than 'included'.

Thats a joke, right? A joke that you complained about that I mean?

I included it as part of a larger complaint about no food served on one flight and almost no bar left on another, on the same day.

It wasn't the only thing in the complaint, no. That would be too much. But I think it's a fair point to raise when you go to complain about not receiving something you've paid for as part of a ticket, that it's categorised as 'free'.

Well, unless you're on BA and want it served in a cup from a tray while still at the gate.

Bloggers....

Is that Wetherspoons? Tables seem to need to be re-varnished.

It looks a lot better than what I imagine a Wetherspoons breakfast to be like, but I'm not that familiar with options in T5 as I tend to eat in the hotel if I have an early flight (or make do with the lounge).

It's the thought of pre-poached eggs reheated in a microwave.
