If the booking is not in Basic Economy, I have always found AA gate agents to be quite happy to accommodate changes. So if you can’t change the flight prior to checkin you *might* be able to do this...

I thought it was alright, certainly entertaining, although it won’t go into the list of greatest shows ever made.

Noticed that too. It is also called “Imperial Atlantic Airways”. I nearly didn’t continue watching after the first few scenes where what seemed like a 767 flies non-stop from NYC to BKK. Later the...

If you have Amex points you can try to find some availability on CX Asiamiles. There is typically much more availability than on BAEC. However, keep in mind that there might still be travel...

Does Barclays Premier require you to transfer your salary into the account? I wouldn’t want to give up my HSBC Premier account, but would happily take the voucher + avios for the annual fee.

This seems correct, otherwise you could just order stuff for 10/20k, receive the voucher, and then return everything you ordered.

Good points.


Agreed, but it affects airlines differently. BA doesnt just compete on LHR-XXX but also with, for example, AF on ZRH-JFK, or U2 on LON-GLA.



Yes but in competitive markets...

So basically LHR is taking revenue from BA assuming that BA does not have sufficient pricing power to pass the 8.90 to consumers. This holds especially on connecting tickets and everywhere where BA...

Even better than a cheap hotel is usually a 1day rental car somewhere.

The SOF/BUD to US fares can usually also be squeezed for quite a few TPs by routing via HEL and JFK. I would have higher confidence in this happening than the UL runs.

It’s a long shot, but you might try to get in touch with the local office/ ba airport staff/ station manager. Maybe call the airport and ask at what times a BA representative is around?

Exactly, it would be possible for the UK government to take a share in BA.

I think far more likely than formally “nationalising” the airline is a cash injection from the government in exchange for...

There seem to be concerns that the vaccine doesn’t work against some novel strains.

Otherwise there is no reason to reduce foreign arrivals if you have the virus already running wild. There would...

I don’t expect this to happen. The current government seems reluctant to introduce rules that limit individual freedoms and usually only do so if they have no other option.

With all these TAP sales, one really has to wonder if this is just one last big attempt to get liquidity during the dire winter months.

Does anyone know if there is a way to “insure” this ticket...

I think for most people a 737 is “a small plane”, or just “a plane”. I also don’t believe that the general public will avoid the 737MAX, but I really hope that BA doesn’t buy the 737.

Seems like your refund request somehow got lost. Give BA a call and ask them to expedite the refund. They usually process by departure date and agents have the option to expedite the request.

That sounds like the experience in an Admirals Club. Last I was in ORD I could enter the Flagship First lounge as an OWS which was nice. This was some time 2018 though, so it might have changed.
