It looks increasingly as though the F&B budget has...

Do not see why not as it always seemed popular when I flew it and it has been a fixture of BA services for a very long time. Only BA will know whether it works for them but from my perspective a...

Well on that basis, there's not much point doing most things that are not strictly 'logical'. A lot of illogical things (like drinking wine, as one random example) do however give pleasure and as the...

Concorde was massively iconic in the UK for all sorts of reasons not least of which was that it was partially British built and was a very aspirational plane to fly on. The 747/744 is close to many...

That's the one, thanks. A bit pricier than the others. MaxJet and Silver Jet were great as their fares were competitive against WTP/PE but providing a more comfortable flight, offset by flying from...

A very valid observation. As someone who generally avoids dairy (non life threatening allergy), BA's menus are often pretty awful in that respect. I guess cheese is relatively cheap. A real low point...

What a shame. My first 747 flight was on 05 August 1972 on BOAC's GAWN-J and I was very much hoping to do a 50th Anniversary flight in 2022 - ideally in 1A/K. Gutted.

Wouldn't this be a good opportunity to do the lounge refurbishments and deep clean/renovation of the showers?
