BA cancelled my VIE flight (Austria has similar restrictions to those that appear to apply in Hungary) with only 5 or 6 days notice- I suspect it's because they were waiting to see if Austria relaxed...

This would be my instinct as well. Row 1 would work but only if you board last. If you make sue of the previously much coveted priority boarding then whilst you settle into your seat, the whole...

Flew into T2 yesterday on LH.

A fair few passengers (maybe around 20 or 30 of the 120 or so) did not seem to know about the Home Office requirement, and were basically pulled to one side to do the...

I must admit I do keep an eye out on Exec club announcements, mostly on here, and also an eye out on what other carriers are doing. But I do so with very little enthusiasm. The last three months have...
