Indeed. QR staff guarding the lounges don't have discretion and don't dare question the rules they see/know. If the IT works and says you have access, then no problem. If the computer says no...

One other aspect of this change is puzzling me. The naming of the fare families: Classic / Comfort / Elite

I would have switched the positioning of 'Classic' and 'Comfort'. So Comfort in my mind...

I now strongly suspect that there isn't any lag with their revenue management/IT systems. They just aren't radically changing the fares. Suggesting this is nothing to do with getting Y pax to buy...

For me, this sums up how illogical the situation will be. So once things are back to some sort of normal, say you are flying LHR-DOH-SIN. At LHR T4 you would be turned away from the lounge (or...

I do agree that this move will be a disaster for QR in the medium-term unless they change policy. I think they could get away with the seating change (as BA did, albeit with some negative publicity...

Very sad news. Both for the staff who will be losing their jobs and for travelers.

I really do think that some of these decisions are very short-sighted by BA. Unless there are decent...

I have a booking to Australia in late Nov 2020. It used an Amex 2-4-1 and GUF2 to get us F tickets. The GUF2 expires in early Nov 2020 (including the 6 month extension). I'm increasingly sceptical...

Do you have anything to base your assertion of it being loved by "by a wide cross section of our society" on? While I agree that many frequent fliers, especially those in business class, do like the...

I really don't see BA abandoning LGW or even LHR T3 in the medium term for several reasons:

BA Will Need Additional Capacity Beyond LHR T5 - We don't know if that will be 2021 or 2022, but they...
