I’m not an expert on purchasing planes, but if it’s only a letter of intent, it leaves the door open for Airbus to counter offer. The A320 is superior to the 737 in every respect from a passenger...

Fair points, but QR out of BHX is on the 787. Preferred cash fare exCDG is mid afternoon departure so plenty of same day positioning flight options exLHR on BA.

Thatís the obvious solution, but no availability in any class until after I have to be back. Itís peak season and England are playing test matches in SA so prices are sky high.

I’ve never yet flown long haul on BA where there has been a spare seat in the whole cabin, let alone next to me. QR, by contrast has never been more than 60% full on any of the flights I’ve done and...

A resounding thumbs down then. That would explain why there is so much availability in Y using Avios.

Is there any chance Durban might get switched to a 777 or is the demand not high enough?

A350 to BKK?

Might we see the A350 on the BKK route, or at least one of the 788s that are being displaced by the A350?
