The same lady was present at the gate later and her approach to passengers was not what I would call helpful. I didn't mention this in the OP as she was perfectly pleasant to me (though she did...

who said I was grumpy!? I had a perfect trip through the airport, with no wait at either security or passport control, and enjoyed an hour in the lounge. Again, no thanks to the BA (Dnata) agent who...

lol Or to GVA I would reckon! The gates there are miserable overcrowded little pens with seriously overpriced refreshments, even by Swiss standards. The airport is pretty nasty and made bearable by a...

I have no idea what her motivation was but she was not motivated to engage with me as a premium passenger and give me considered advice on my options in the airport.

She may not have intended to stress me of course, but advising a passenger (unreasonably) to allow 1h 45m to go the gate is foreseeable likely to cause stress for a less experienced traveller.

she should make it her business to know about delays, especially when theyíre on the airport screen. And I canít believe the BA system doesnít alert her to delays.

I do think she was trying to stress me (but failing); if it were a more irregular (average) flyer I would have headed straight to the gate and spent 1h15m there wondering why I had bothered! And I...

Why is BA GVA check-in trying to stress me out?

Just checked in 1930h for the 2055h GVA-LCY flight. The lady at the Club Europe desk was pleasant enough but told me to go straight to the gate as there are likely to be big lines at security and...

Quick check please: fees less than Avios cancellation charge

If I book an RFS and the charges are less than the £35 a head cancellation charge, I can get all my miles back without having to pay any additional fee to BA, right?

Thanks!

Do all domestic flights arrive T5A

Never really thought about this before, but I guess they do? My inbound flight today is a domestic so would be great to know I donít have to head over to a satellite. Thanks!
