No, your luggage will not be checked through if you change airports. You will need to pick your bags at LGW and take them to LHR.

Sorry to disappoint you but this theory has holes in it. As we've been repeatedly told, BA is a monopoly. That voids points nos. 3 & 4 as people have no other airline to go to. Everyone is forced to...

Yes, you have mentioned many times the definition of a 'monopoly' that you subscribe to. However, for practical purposes, I am more concerned with whether or not a passenger has a choice rather than...

You contradict yourself here - on the one hand, you say that there are other airlines that offer cheaper prices, but on the other, you claim that BA is a monopoly. If BA had been a monopoly then...

Except that BA do not charge 'premium' prices. They are just prices which fluctuate depending on a variety of factors.

Just to clarify - my post was not directed at you personally.


Of course. Even when we disagree we must respect each other. I tried to point out that lobbying would not work, but what each of us...

Thank you for your answer, first of all. So, you think you and other disappointed passengers should take it upon themselves to tell BA what the competition is doing. I, personally, would not believe...

But do you really believe that we can tell BA something that BA do not already know? This is precisely why I think that telling BA about other airlines is a waste of time. That would be a futile...

I don't get to decide when and whether someone should complain. If someone feels aggrieved, they by all means should.
I made an observation several times that I don't understand what people want to...

Yeah, this false argument is often used by the same people who refuse to let go of how things used to be. Of course, they speak on behalf of 'most people,' and when asked they can't explain where is...

The question is what are people trying to achieve with the criticism. No one is trying to stifle the criticism. Just do not be surprised that nobody's listening. Criticism should always be warranted....

What's tiresome is criticizing the airline for what it does not purport to be rather than for a mis-sold product or a broken seat or a delayed bag. What's tiresome is keeping buying what you know...

The discussion was about paying BA twice as much to fly in the same class of service (economy). Not sure how relevant it is to bring premium classes of service into that discussion. A completely...

Only a fool would pay twice the price for transportation because he or she is wedded to the airline. A premium is paid to be on a particular flight because it suits the person for some reason. No...

To get the flight that one actually wants? Does one deserve a reward for buying something that they needed even if it is more expensive than the product they didn't need?

A separate 'product' doesn't need to mean a separate cabin. Airlines have for years offered different products within their economy class cabins.

I don't think it used to be granted as a OW benefit per se. These 'perks' are designed to attract flyers. I believe that any talk of retaliation is misplaced here. BA does not offer free drinks/food...
