If the hire car doesn't have the magic box, do we need coins or notes to pay for road tolls - or can we use a foreign credit card?

Don't give a stuff for TPs.

Live in Scotland, so BA not much use for short-haul - would rather take the train to London. Or direct flights to the Continent. So no need for lounge access there.

Hi,

That may be the problem, but the board - and BA's web pages - talk about all sorts of other ways of "earning" avios too!

Best side for are/dep Victoria Falls airport

Hi,

Got flights booked with BA's Comair franchise JNB-VFA in January.

I know the runway will depend on wind direction, but which side might give us the best views?

Of JNB or VFA!
