I did this trip back in 2016 as a TP run, and my route was DUB-LHR-JFK-LAX-HNL and back, with breaks in NYC on the outbound and LAX/NYC on the inbound. I managed to fly transatlantic on AA metal,...

I'm well aware of when BA was privatised. And if you're trying to intimate that the way staff worked back then bears any resemblance to now, you're in la la land.

As for the pay cuts - big deal....

Disgusting. Pilots are hardly poorly paid to begin with, and an 11.5% pay deal over 3 years is more than generous. I'm sure many people in the private sector would bite their boss's hand off if they...

Because 10 hours sat bolt upright and 90 minutes sat bolt upright are somewhat different situations.

Let me guess - you're cabin crew. Either way, perhaps you can point out exactly what I've said that is wrong. And if there is any ignorance, perhaps you'd be good enough to correct me. Ignorance is...

Compared to the state of its coffers pre-9/11, I'm sure that's a fair description. And the fact a huge bite has been taken out of its business by LCCs.

Way to miss the point. How many rotations have BA operated since the last incident like this? 5,000? 10,000? 100,000? The point I'm making is that most cabin crew will never face this kind of...

It's one cost-cutting measure I wholeheartedly agree with - reclining seating on SH flights is totally unnecessary. A couple of inches of recline makes practically no difference to your comfort. I...

Surely one of the reasons why industrial relations will always be difficult for BA is that staff are essentially split into 2 camps - those with 20 years of service, hired on ridiculously generous...

I used to shuttle LCY-ORY on AF/Cityjet for years, before the gate area at Orly got redeveloped. The AF lounge was (still is, I think) upstairs above these gates, and it was at one point the quietest...

It's a great development, finally the end of the ying-yang concept is in sight. More importantly, it will put the seats on a par with AA's fabulous 777-300 product. The doors will be a nice touch...

Thanks. For some reason I thought the ITA Matrix was super complicated, but it's taken me all of 5 minutes to get flights at the time I want for around £2,200 - and it's also flexible enough for you...

Can anyone help me? Since my posts a week or so ago I've been desperately searching for a US trip that will bag me close to 600TPs. I'm thinking ex-DUB and ending up in LAX before heading back....

I concur - I did JFK-LAX-JFK last year, out in F and back in J. F was basically the same as the transatlantic J seat on their 773, J was fine although it's a 2-2 config so you do have a neighbour....

Apologies if this is another stupid question - I've read the wiki and I think I know the answer, but just checking.

I must be doing it wrong, as I can't get prices for much below £2500 on any dates in Feb/March, originating in OTP, DUB, AMS or HEL, whether going to LAX or any other west coast-ish end destination....

Hello hive mind. Back in 2016 I did the fantastic DUB-HNL marathon and earned a shed load of points. I just lost my Silver, so I want to do a reduced DUB-JFK-LAX and back to get my 600 TPs. Was...

T5B is definitely quieter, and in my experience, there's more chance of getting a stint in the massage chair as a result. The -4 secret walkway allows for a rare 10 minutes of peace and quiet in an...

I'm actually amazed that the ban on liquids over 100ml has lasted as long as it has. These 'enhanced security measures' usually get quietly rescinded a few weeks after the event that caused them to...

Seeing as BA staff are unable and/or unwilling to enforce current boarding rules, why would anyone expect this to be any different? And doesn't the whole idea of introducing a new system that will...
