Where in the world am I? | 2024 edition

Lets begin 2024 with a brand new season of "Where in the world am I?", primed and ready for when we start travelling again. Err, didn't I write this last year? Anyhoo..

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 its 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.
