Once you've actually learned to fly an aircraft you realise just how difficult it is to (smoothly) land, especially on a short runway. Practice makes (nearly) perfect but, as other posters have...

Thank you! I've just deleted the bookmark I had on this (new) computer and reloaded the BA website. It looks identical but now works!

Hmm, strange that when I try I still get "Not Available" showing against CE on every return flight.

Can I no longer fly Club Europe just one way on domestic routes?

I may be behind the curve on this one but a few times recently I've wanted to booked (say) LHR-GLA in ET but return in CE. I'm not trying to combine an outbound HBO ticket with CE; it would be with...

The only thing that amazes me about this type of incident (which I see every day) is peoples' mad panic to save a few minutes - or more likely measured in seconds. What exactly are they going to do...

Hi Stuarto and welcome to the forum. I can't comment specifically on the CPT route but yes, BA does have a very ancient fleet of aircraft. In particular it must be one of the last airlines in the...

How do BA calculate flight distance?

I've wondered for a while why the Avios I'm awarded always seems to be a little bit less than the minimum actual distance flown between two airports. Last week when we boarded at ATH, the screen...

OP, this would be my advice exactly - fly QR. I travel to BKK and pay out of my own pocket. There's no way I'd ever fly CW (to there or any other destination). My next trip to BKK leaves LHR in...

Just a guess but, as the number of Avios is exactly 20% less than you expected, is this possibly the rate for an "off peak" redemption? For flights originating from the UK, the discount is approx...

The issue of the screens showing (maybe) "gate open" for ages, then "boarding" followed what seems just seconds after by "last call" is getting ridiculously frequent. Maybe it amuses someone in some...

Didn't know there was a HBO CE fare

Well, to be exact, that you could travel Club Europe but have no checked-in baggage allowance. My wife booked a HBO fare but was offered an upgrade for the return sector for 89 euros, which she...

We are flying LHR-GLA next month and I am interested in upgrading the return sector if the price is reasonable. I thought this would be simple via MMB but no, I get a message telling me to phone BA...

I've never been asked to produce the card but I have wondered what I'd do if the card had expired. At some point many of us will book a flight months in the future, non-refundable so paid in full at...

Flights to Spanish destinations seem to be considered "holiday" routes and CE is always packed. We went to AGP last month and there were 8 rows of CE with 28-30 passengers outbound and return.

Agree with the previous 2 comments. I wouldn't bother with the windows pairs of seats in CE as no middle seat free, so go for a seat in the middle section. The 767s are definitely showing their age...

I don't fly long-haul with BA any more because so many other airlines, especially the ME3, offer a better product than CW. However, in this case I would have been very tempted to refuse absolutely...
