If your first comment is correct isn't that suggesting the FFP is a complete failure? You earn in one year to reap the benefits in another, if the benefits have no bearing on your travel plans then...

Having recently cancelled an AA booking after the schedule was cut and changed so much my experience was this. It’s a two-step process, first you cancel the booking, then you request the refund,...

Surely the purpose of the button removal was to create the backlog and hold onto the cash. Human intervention on more complex ones I understand. But staff would be more likely available for those if...

Which makes perfect sense, tying up network capacity with 00's of calls on wait for ages is a waste of resource. However, BA could easily fix this by both adjusting the website to allow refunds, and...

0.9p is OK for an Amex MR. But used well Avios may provide better value. So much depends on how many you have, how much you fly, do you have a partner and get value from a 241 voucher. I'd say the...
