At one point the CSD said that the FA might come by and apologize later. I don't think I objected to that. Just on a human level, however, a quick "I'm sorry for how that was handled" doesn't seem...

The only reason I mentioned it was that the FA was standing a foot away from me as I disembarked, and there wasn't really anyone else around as I was the last of F to get off. A quick acknowledgement...

Now you're getting into United and American Airlines territory where everyone is a terrorist if they don't comply instantly with any request. Luckily, BA isn't that silly most of the time. One thing...

Why am I posting? This is a BA forum and this happened on BA. Take it or leave it. I am sometimes idealistic enough to think that each thought advances the cause a little bit. Am I perfect?...

Yes, I have no problem with the First CSL. He was a nice guy, and I told him I appreciated his words. But basically having someone announce to the cabin that you’re a b—— is upsetting. Try it...

It was surprising how audible it was. I was not expecting to hear anything of the sort, so really wasn’t paying any particular attention. But both 1A and 1K heard it clearly. I presume others did too.

Slandered by flight attendant

I recently, along with family, took a paid BA trip in F to India, with four F flight segments. Two flights were mediocre service-wise. One flight was outstanding (made sure to thank flight crew...

We really enjoyed staying at the V&A waterfront and then being able to walk into downtown. We are big walkers, so might not suit everyone. But we almost always had dinner at the waterfront and then...

While it wasn't onboard the plane and most likely didn't cost BA anything, I thought the showcase of British gins this summer in the BA First lounges was really great. We learned a lot about British...

Count me as NOT a fan of the Eagle's Nest. First, for the passenger commuting between LAX and SFO, it adds on a minimum of 20 minutes trip time to what should be a short commuter flight. And last...

CNN just reported that police officer who dragged man off was put on leave. Too bad officer got pulled into this. United could have grossly misrepresented the situation to him. He should have made...

We just took Comair last week from CPT to JNB and it was fine. Not distinguishable from a regular BA flight. Really enjoyed the Slow Lounge in CPT. It's great. The BA F lounge in JNB is not nearly as...

There is a BA F lounge, but nothing at all to get excited about. Very crowded. Food didn't appeal to me at all. They did have decent magazines and newspapers. That's about the best I can say. The...

I love Liberty, and I think it's a great idea for Liberty and BA to combine forces, but this washbag misses for me. The contents look mediocre and the print really isn't a classic Liberty print, like...

If you contact BA on Twitter, they are more responsive than even the Gold line. Took me over two months to get my very routine ticket fully refunded. So aggravating, and a terrible way to do...

One thing I love about the A380 is how quiet it is upstairs. I am never good at sleeping on planes, but I actually have had some of my best sleep upstairs on an A380. I think I slept 3-4 hours on the...
