I have to ask the obvious question: why choose BA F over other carriers if F&B is important to you? The offer on the flight is clearly not great and BA really should know better, but they weren’t...

For the food in PV, we ate (dinner) in several places that were good (i.e. good but not more than that) and several places that were mediocre. These were all on research and recommendations, rather...

Many customers do care about how a company treats its employees, and act accordingly. There are UK companies I could name right now (a certain pub chain being one of them) who I wouldn't give...

If people think this is solely based on a response to Covid-19 and not also based on ideology, then the best of luck in that way of thinking. There is also a reality of treatment of BA staff over the...

What I find most irritating about the timing, is that no-one knows the future shape of commercial air travel, short or medium-term, therefore how is this modelling of vast numbers based on decent,...

They may as well, if they're able to increase prices then it would be odd for them not to. Anyone who wants to travel next year would - I'd hope ;) - put somewhat of a higher price on BA as an...

It definitely was 2-5-2 on the DC10. I recall my first BA flight, and first long-haul flight, on a DC10, as a 17 year old on a school exchange trip to Atlanta in the early 90s.
