Recent flights back from Riyadh, 3 each in BA and Saudia. Interesting to note that when I flew into LHR on Saudia, on every trip, I could see at least 3-4 black 7-series BMW's belonging to the...

41, joined the Executive Club in 2014. I have approx 5,500 LTP's. Just changed my job to one which involves weekly long-haul travel in F, so expect those numbers to accelerate.

As the OP to this thread - it wasn't so much that they blagged their way in. That happens and even if I don't agree with it, it's just one of those things. The thing that riled me the most was their...

Yes, it does appear rather inconsistent! My boss (who is GGR and Concorde room access) hasn't received any such service - and he was shocked when I told him this evening. I'm thinking it was a test...

BA Special Services Escort as a Gold

Had a couple of (really quite excellent) experiences recently, where BA special services teams have come to me at check-in and escorted me to the CCR, or even better during arrivals, when they've...

As someone who used to work for MBB, if the aim is really to go for GGL at an early age, then that's your job. I know people 1-2 years out of university, analysts, who are GGL / CCR (and in at least...

Fair point - the point about the hard work is that the message from others seemed to be that I'm some sort of an elitist class-driven snob who doesn't want the riff-raff coming in. Nothing could be...

I think you have a point there - I was perhaps being oversensitive to this as I knew that they had sweet talked their way in. Fair enough, but I bet if you had paid 4.5k out of your own pocket for...

I didn't say it was my business and as I said in my initial post, I didn't complain. Just thought it was unusual that people could be allowed in without having the correct qualifications.

Sweet-talking your way into the CCR - unacceptable

Just yesterday, two passengers in front of me (a young couple who were off somewhere to celebrate the New Year) managed to blag (a.k.a sweet-talk) their way into the Concorde Room. I witnessed the...

I always recline long-haul, never short-haul. As a result, there have been occasions where a seat has been thrust in my face but that's public air travel. On a flight last year to LA, I was...

What's the most tier points you have seen / gained?
