I don't understand how you know for certain that the seat wasn't in fact broken considering you weren't there. Unless your relatives are trained BA engineers that know the mechanics of all their...

Considering how long the 747's sit on the tarmac in South Africa, I'm surprised BA hasn't tried to outsource some of it's deep cleaning to during the turnaround. I'd imagine there isn't enough time...

Just so I understand fully, the crew did a combined food and drink service initially and your issue is that after they did this they weren't proactively going around asking if you wanted more drinks?...

South Africa is another place that this happens, although only on the return iirc. I find it amusing how people dive for cover as if it's out to get them, despite it not coming even close to their...

Alternatively, you could get the train from Dublin. Drops you off at Lanyon Place (formerly Central Station). From there you could either get a taxi or walk to Queen's square (2 mins along Oxford...

I suspect this is the knock-on effect of the A380 issues yesterday. If my research is correct too, looks like the BA214 was upgraded to a 777-300, possibly to help mitigate the lack of A380.

Not to add insult to injury but, the weather in Belfast is also rather grim at the minute. I'm visiting family in Bangor, Co. Down, which is about 20 mins from BHD. Practically horizontal rain and...

Tracking this flight on FR24 and it seems like it's gone from bad to worse. ~90min delay leaving Amman and then a ~2.5 hrs delay once in Athens. It's looking tight but, it may just squeeze into the...

BA don't do this (and in my opinion shouldn't do this) but, HMPO nowadays will send out reminder text messages when a passport is about to expire. I can't remember if my passport had 6 months or 3...
