Also had BA211 on 21/4 cancelled yesterday, seems like it's a permanent change. It was an avios booking and I only went for the (747) BA211 because the A380 service had no availability, been...

Chart on page 128 suggests that Club World Suite will be fitted to the A380s, I believe that was previously in doubt so perhaps they will stay for longer now?

Have recently spent a week in New Orleans and I would echo comments that it's more of a long weekend than a full week destination - though admittedly we indulged a bit too much in the nightlife to...

Bumping this thread to report that I booked advance fares via the BAEC link and did receive the avios as advertised, so I think it's a website bug.

At checkout I saw "Avios to be awarded: 0" (took...

I was on the 225 outbound with the same issue and a rerouting via AA economy. Will be claiming the full 600 as 4 hour delayed arrival. Wish you the best of luck!

Following OLCI on the dot of T-24, we've been given 6B and 6J which I believe are the bassinet seats. Surprising as EF was definitely showing them as occupied rather than blocked as they had been...

Not going to read too much into this as I'm sure it can still change, but FR24 now showing the aircraft allocated as G-ZBJG, which is a 788. Will let you know what happens at OLCI tomorrow.

Not to worry, sorry I was unclear!



Thanks for laying out these options in such detail. I'm also seeing LHR-DFW-MSY 1425 - 2227 on AA. Any reason not to consider that?

If one did want to have a good chance of getting UD seats for free as a bronze, are there any routes which would be particularly conducive to this?
