I switched soon after AA dropped the status soft landing which BAEC still have. If you are going to switch I would advise doing so as close to the beginning of your qualifying year to maximise what...

For me the decision would be based solely on my perception of the health risk but ultimately it has to be 100% your call.

Completely agree.

I figure that I'm getting something for nothing so if sometimes it doesn't happen then I haven't really suffered any loss. IME the only element of the process that works 100% of...

Helpful post there from Raffles.

Over the years I've been with and without the BAPP for periods of time and currently have no card but 2 vouchers. Without doubt the vouchers are the prime...

Largely my feelings as well.

The devaluation trend has been happening for several years now and it is by no means restricted to BA or even just to airline programmes. There are still a few decent...

On the wider point as to whether ex-EUs is still 'worth it', I still think that for a family trip of perhaps 4 or 5 people the level of savings is usually well worth the faff of positioning and...

It's certainly useful but It's far from infallible. There have been many occasions when I've unsuccessfully tried to book SAAver awards by phone on the basis that EF shows them and I have yet to have...

That looks likely resulting in the new class looking very much like the current First service at weekends.

I live very close to a West Coast mainline station but an hour away from MAN. By train I...

I've taken quite a few 'pauses' over the years and currently don't have a BA Amex although I must have had around 15 vouchers in my time and have 2 current in my BAEC account. While I fully...

It's another 'swings and roundabouts" situation. In the years when I was EXP I frequently felt that I was better treated on BA flights than I am now as BAEC Gold.

Would be good if it happens but over the 30 or so years I've flown TATL from MAN there have been so many rumours about direct services that simply haven't materialised. In fact the real story has...

If the crux of the OP's question is whether any 2 F seats allow comfortable and convenient interaction then, for me, the answer is "no". The often maligned middle pair in Club are vastly superior in...
