It sounds like the OP was determined to have a miserable flight for his 1000, either before or after the "special welcome" pushed him over the edge.

There could be a million reasons why the...

I agree.

The OP had a thorough miserable flight because someone wished him a pleasant flight, there was a queue to board the plane, and the worst of all - the cabin crew didn't give him a pen....

You don't need to call. If you select the dates and flights on ba.com, it will not charge additional taxes.

Just books it with a stopover on the London, and ba.com will not charge any additional APD, if the stopover is <24 hours.

Well it did last Saturday. I can't say for sure whether it should, or whether it always does, but last weekend we got brekkie on the 1005.

Interesting poll. "NO" doesn't seem to be an option. :confused:

The answers are (i) yes - merge it with the BA forum, (ii) yes - make a separate forum or (iii) undecided. What happened to "NO"?

Not the background. But the way you are going about it. It's wrong. You need to take a step back and realise that:

I've flown dozens of RJ sectors and never seen anything like that.

If the OP has given the wrong PNR and his attitude to the call centre staff is as we can guess, then it's hardly ridiculous at all.

The PNR he quoted is presumably the "for info" PNR which was...

I don't understand.

Could you please explain in more detail:
1) what exactly you mean by "allowed to fail"?
2) who is "we"?
3) which standards do you exactly mean are "appalling"?
4) how do...

It's nothing to do with AA. It's simply the 2000 mile rule, which separates long-haul TPs from short-haul TPs. Same thing with BA.

BA flight number LHR-AMM in J earns 140 TPs.

Fly out from LHR-AMS. If you have lounge access by having (or your travelling companion having) a Silver/Gold card, then go in ET. If not, spend the extra miles to go in CE to get lounge access.
