no wonder BA is now so unpopular in the UK. Slashes regional routes, buys BMI and slashes more regional routes, now trying to ensure Flybe goes under.

AFAIK, no state aid has actually been given...

So I never made it to AMS anyway so the 19 I paid to move from my middle seat on the return was wasted.

Boarded on time - told there would be an hour delay due to fog, then that went to 3 hours...

Trying to book the current companion J sale to LAS. So many flights J9 C9 R9 I0 so can't book.

What's the betting the I0 suddenly changes when the sale ends Monday. Frustrating.

So on Thursday I managed (finally) to leave my IPAD and Bose Headphones on the plane in the seat pocket. I realised half way to arrivals but it was too late.
