There's apparently an exception (noted on BA.com...

Titanic Hotel and other things related to that big boat that sank

For the first night, I booked the Titanic Hotel. And, those shipbuilders had a great place to work! The public spaces were gorgeous, and even the entry-level rooms had some class. My room was bright,...

A Wee Jaunt to Belfast, via BA, EI, and a bus

Perhaps the key, to first class rudeness, is to stay in Club? I've had an exemplary JFK experience thus far (hoping I'm not jinxing myself for the in-flight experience).

Yes! Another benefit is they take up very little room, and I always have several stashed away in my carry-on if I'm checking luggage so I'm not caught out.
