I diligently read the thread and thought I had it worked out at one point, but I'm confused again. If I have an OC6 and want a NC4, PLUS my 30,000 point refund - do I ask for a QP83 or a QP87? It's...

While I understand and share the annoyance about BA's lack of investment in IT, I don't quite understand why everyone is so concerned.

I have card fraud every half a year or so - I'm used to it by...

Thanks for that link!


*cough* What track might that be - the one that had it "fully operational" in September 2017? The launch in 1H 2018? The launch by July 2018?

Huh? What does this Telstar satellite have to do with BA? Just because someone is launching a satellite for airborne internet services somewhere doesn't mean that BA must be waiting for it?

Yes, and the reason why BA hasn't launched it yet is because it hasn't been launched :)

Because it hasn’t been launched commercially - there were delays in the rollout to begin with, plus there’s the legal challenges from a Viasat et al. That’s probably put a bit of a delay on things,...

On the plus side there is hope that if it does get switched on it will be a “Big Bang” approach given the number of planes already fitted that have been talked about. Watching a slow crawl of a...
