I think BA's financial returns from its F cabin are relatively low compared with other cabins'. Apparently, BA has got better returns from its J, WT+ and even Y seats. I'm not sure the degree to...

Weren't the tablecloths and/or napkins tartan?

The OP mentions 3 to a row [and, I think, means 6] so it must have been a -436. Although -236s operated to LAX, -136s did not [but -136s did operate to SFO].

This thread has brought back memories...

I find it interesting that so many cabin crew [and on so many airlines] feel it acceptable to talk about personal matters within earshot of customers. I'm confident that all of them will have been...

I first flew out of Terminal 1 in 1973, with BEA to Dublin. It was a Trident. [I'm sure there are many on FlyerTalk who can better that, and by years!]

My only domestic flight was to Manchester on...

I've been forced to change a flight or accept a downgrade to J. This is why I'm interested in these new two-class A380s.

If substituting a two-class aircraft for a three-class one after F seats...

Thank you for this information.

By fifth crew member, do you mean compared with the four-class 777-236?

I suppose dining on demand would make it difficult to schedule rest periods for the...

I am puzzled by your first point. Surely to serve food to 70 people in one go is likely to be more difficult to achieve? Given the late departure time of BA15 I can imagine the last passengers to...

BA15 LHR-SIN Meal Question

I agree, the Gatwick lounge is nicer.

However, in two respects I prefer the Heathrow one. First, the great tarmac view. Second, direct boarding from the lounge. [Having said that, though, for the...

I could be wrong, but I do not think it is possible to earn Skywards' Miles on Qantas domestic flights unless the flights are part of an international itinerary (and on the same PNR).

BA flights to PHL were introduced in 1970. The idea was to use VC10s freed up by the planned introduction of the 747 in May of that year, which didn't happen. It was daily then (I seem to recall the...

If they don't hold your flight, I'm sure they'd put you on the next flight (space permitting).

This will play havoc with schedules and connections.

Sounds like this "enhancement" might possibly benefit Emirates', then. It can offload a passenger on a discounted economy ticket having sold his or her seat at top dollar to a Gold member.
