Spot on. I really liked 53E on a day flight with the dividers up and the ease of getting into the aisle. At night, I would cocoon myself into a corner somewhere.

The buddy seat in 1A/1K feels much narrower at shoulder height than elsewhere in the cabin or on the 777. Mrs Baggageinhall and I like to use it ex-LHR to the US. On overnight returns it feels like...

I'm old enough to remember checking-in and then having to go to another desk to get a seat allocated to you. A large piece of paper with a sticker for each seat on the plane.

They'll go back to President eventually when their special deal with Anchor runs out and the French brand has a new sign-up bonus.

I received a twitter DM this morning telling me that I haven't held my BA Amex since 2001 so I don't qualify. I have had my card since 2001. This is such a pain.

That's predicated on the fare staying the same if BoB hadn't happened. The argument advanced by BA is that without BoB, fares would go up and/or be uncompetitive with competitors who do have BoB.
