Just boarded a Vueling flight at CDG heading to LGW.. cabin crew said they have no idea where we will land but we will give Gatwick a try! The pilot then came on to see it's going to be bumpy bumpy...

Considering they're flying the same route, it's a pretty valid comparison.

Having done almost 400 sectors with BA in the past 3 years, I've hardly flown with them in the past 12 months and it's been pretty refreshing.

For me long haul is what let's BA down, CW is simply...

Having worked in the industry, you're pretty naive if you believe that there's no padding.

Had almost almost 2 years of not much flying so have dropped down to silver and now bronze. Was on my first BA flight for almost a year yesterday and the very apologetic CSM mentioned that she had a...

Haven't flown the AY 350 but done 2 14 hour flights on the CI 350 and preferred it to the 787. Like others said, it's quieter, and I felt more refreshed after landing compared to 12h on the BA 787.

Pathetic in the sense that anyone who doesn't like beetroot basically has no starter. There's not even a couple of lettuce leaves to eat. Hence why most airline starters have a couple of different...

The beef cheek is great but I find the beetroot starter pathetic - there's plenty of people who can't think of anything worse than eating a plate of beetroot. If it was served with a salad then fine,...

I'm a huge fan of IB TATL, better seat, more space, better service (although it helps being a Spanish speaker).

Indeed - the IB flights to Tokyo and Shanghai are both excellent in J - some really good Japanese food on my outbound to NRT which was quite a nice surprise!

I would be as well.

Having travelled this route many many times, the service on BA is particular sub-par compared to the service on KE or OZ. Particularly for Koreans, it is a very noticeable...

Having done CX F on this route a few times, I don't think it's worth double the avios. It's not really a long enough flight to make the most out of it.

Not sure what the recurrent issue of the BA...

Flew CI J from FCO-TPE, very long flights in both directions but found the seat excellent. Got a good 8 hours sleep in each direction.

The service outbound was not great, but back to Rome was much...

It was made seasonal.

FR is a good example of companies that have faced this kind of criticism - at a certain point it did bring about a change in their attitude so we can only hope for the same...

As my weekly commute is to GIB, I would tend to agree with this. There have been several times recently where BA made only one attempt to land and then diverted to AGP, despite U2 and ZB making two...

I think that's a bit of a misrepresentation. I've had over 400 sectors on U2 and have never been forced to queue in the pouring rain - mostly just in an airbridge, and usually just for 5 mins max....

Most of my stays are in Europe/Asia, but I get far better upgrades from Hilton than Marriott. In the US it's the reverse.

Just to clarify here, President's Club isn't invitation only in Europe. It's earned through number of rentals/spend.

I didn't say that I think legacies and LCC's are doing better. On the BoB front yes, but there are other areas where BA are ahead (lounges being an example, and generally I find BA CC excellent).

BoB is a part of it. Improved ground experience, legroom, it's all a part of the bigger picture. If an AF flier (purely as an example) ends up by chance on a BA flight, every single part of their...

There are plenty of customers that BA never had that are potential high-spend customers of the future. It's a very narrow view to think BA need to only look after their regulars.

I'd agree with that. Arguably that is what is more damaging for BA - it's the slow chipping away of repeat customers - those who might have used to pay 100 extra for BA no longer being willing to do...

On ZB they are very specific that it goes behind the frame. This was also the message yesterday on BA - the overheads were pretty full but could have squeezed the extra bags. I think they just didn't...
