flatlander has explained the reasoning, and all you can really do is hope the delay comes in.

It caught me out the first time (I've had it a couple of times on the EDI-LHR route). Expect groans...

It's supposed to be removed for those flight phases, or at least this was once true - you may see the very faded remains of the text stating this written on the table.

Like yourself, my experience...

Indeed so, that was rather my point and we appear to be in violent agreement :) For all that the fees are entirely under BA's control, I will say I do still find WTP->CW UuA on the East Coast USA &...

Most obvious difference would be the presence of the toilet on the 7D side of the 789. I'd think 7F would be preferable for that reason.

(NB: on the 788 the toilet is on the other side)

I don't think you are "missing" anything as such - although don't forget to account for the additional fees in the WTP to CW upgrade, typically in the 300 ballpark for 2 people return. so your total...

Short answer: Yes

Slightly longer answer: Thinking about it, it has to be this way because the voucher can be used one-way, so it has to be applied when you book the first flight. BA can't know if...

I had heard of the Windsor Suite, but initially discounted that possibility because I could see into it which didn't seem very exclusive VIP :D
