Meals (even in F) are very inexpensive for airlines relative to the cost of the ticket. BA absolutely should load more than enough for each passenger in F.

If I match to MVP Gold 75k but don't reach 20,000 miles, will I be given the next lowest status (MVP Gold) or will I get no status at all?

I use my avios for short-haul American flights-- just 7,500 miles each way in economy. Transferring to Iberia and booking business class is also a good option. But avios can be hard to use at times....

Regarding MVP Gold 75k, is the 50,000 mile bonus for each year you have status or just one-time? If it's just one-time, am I able to earn it my second year after a status match?

Based on my redemptions this hear I value the miles at 1.4-1.5 cents each. I mainly used them for last minute one-way economy or business saver redemptions in the United States.

If you need PQM and can do a weekend run, Cairo often has cheap premium fares on long-haul flights. I would aim to find a fare to North America on UA or LH / OS / LX. You'll probably also see a lot...

There's a lot missing here. In particular, why did the couple wait so long to go public? My guess they tried to get United to pay something and then went public when this didn't work.

I recently checked a computer box with inset handles but am not confident the staff used them. The box arrived fine. I would just check it as-is.
