We regularly fly to LCA, which is 4.5hrs and I think is BA's longest ET flight. Usually gets pretty reasonable catering up until now.

It's basically the same distance as BEY & TLV which are sold...

Let's face it, if a government can run a referendum without thinking through what would happen if they got the wrong answer, I'm sure that BA are capable of not thinking through the implications of...

I made exactly that argument to the (very nice, long-suffering) person from CR on the phone.

A more concrete example is if they removed things from First: if they asked you to pay for that meal...

I agree with you - irrespective of whether you agree with it, they've done it in the right way. And personally I think that this will actually overall improve the FOOD quality, and of course it won't...

The irony is that I originally assumed that this was 1,000 Avios per sector per person, which I thought was not unreasonable and close enough to buy what we'd have got anyway.

When they said it...

I presume BA's legal department are rather assuming that by agreeing to cancel for free they are compliant. But Section 54 doesn't appear to give them that option. The Act doesn't really cater for...

We had 1,000 Avios transferred to three separate EC accounts (3 people on same BR) and got Avios Adjustment on one and Service Recovery on another!

I really did consider it, but the flight in question is our family holiday and we managed to get a 'hens-teeth-rare' redemption to PFO. So cancelling it and then paying 400+ pp to go elsewhere would...

But there is a point of principle here! Obviously a little hard to say how many SH flights BA have sold post 11 Jan, but it must run into thousands -...

I just spoke to CR. They offered 1,000 Avios pp as 'a gesture of goodwill'. I rejected this as it's nowhere near enough to pay for the same level of service that I would have got on an upcoming...

That is I'm afraid the norm to either PFO or LCA. Whilst it won't help on this occasion, what I do is book a 1-way redemption as soon as they become available (just under a year before flying) and...

Personally I have no issue with the LCA flight. Flew CE last year, and it was fine - if you can, bag the middle seats as they have more space (assuming it's a 767 as it was when I went). Going via...

I have to say, I have always wondered why they are called PROactive upgrades. That suggests you can choose to ask (a bit like you can at a check-in desk). Am I right in thinking that using the...

Sounds like they did a print run because my TK Elite Gold card arrived this morning as well!

I have had one op-up from ET to CE (LHR-HAM) since becoming Gold last August, none previously.

Frankly not too concerned, because I never put myself in a position to want a meal on board (since in...

I suspect this is simply trying to be clearer and point out that *if* anyone lands from either a UK or Irish destination, they'll come out there. It's not otherwise obvious to someone picking someone...

Agree with that: and I would actually try to book as soon as possible - my experience of LCA flights is that prices very rarely drop from any destination with any airline.

I have seen both: on a BA flight (FRA-LHR I think it was) I have been moved to an exit row because it was empty.

Then only last week on a LH flight there was a completely empty exit row and they...

Erm... I make that 2/TP ?!

Although I presume you'd have got between 20-40 anyway.
