Thanks, I'll report back.
I'm putting these flights onto QF rather BA EC, as it should mean I'll get to plat this year: not much point keeping both BA Silver and QF Gold running in parallel.

Pardon the new thread, but I thought worth a mention as the direct Australia to UK flights start today, with much hoopla around the 787.
