I flew this route for the first time last month, so a healthy sample of one to go on.
I took AY in both directions, in Y. It was half the price of BA. Shiny 350 out and a scabby 330 back, but an...

I agree with this. There will be way more people in Y for whom a long haul trip like this will be something they can rarely afford. It's public transport. Babies scream but they tend to sleep a lot...

I used Cathay's premium economy for the first time last year. Two legs including a red-eye on an a350 were excellent, and two return legs on an older b777 were abysmal.

In other words, do some...

I was on that flight, in Y. It wasn't even that busy; the seat next to me was free and there were plenty other free seats. I did look at upgrade costs before check-in and they were high, as there...

When i go to the US for a short trip I try to keep as close as possible to UK time as I can. This means getting up early (not in the middle of the night of course).

On the way back from New York...

Exactly. This is why it isn't a scam. If, for example the AA fare is 2000 and the BA fare, 1500, including your seat selection, do you still think BA is ripping you off?

Simply add the seat...

My little one is the same age. She is currently fast asleep lying on me and that's the way she would most likely sleep in Y. If you get a bassinet seat you will get fixed armrests making this...

If you forget your PE kit, surely you have to do it in your underpants?

Seriously though, you'll probably have to leave the airport. Find somewhere a bus goes to, or maybe take the tube into...

In all my years reading this forum, it's good to see that we're finally discussing the merits of BA compared with low cost carriers.

A few years back I was on the last flight back from Manchester. There were three of us. It was the days before BOB so the crew wheeled out the trolley and said we could help ourselves.

I rarely fly from t3 but will be taking the 750 to bcn on Sunday morning.
It would appear that BA or AA will be the only options for breakfast. I know what BA offer, but what do AA have in their J...

I'm impressed by those who get to the airport "just in time". Living in South West London, I can leave an hour before my flight and will make it. If nothing goes wrong. The problem is, I have to get...
