There it was explained that I...

I'm now blocked and it's so irritating as I need to book some flights. I did report my IP to be whitelisted, got an email that this has been done, but no. Still blocked.

I showed pics of BA CE meals to a SK "elite" and he confirmed that BA is in another division. I have to agree, CE food has as far as I can remember (being old that isn't saying much) never been so...

I used to use them but as I'm working in the public sector as a consultant I don't want to brag or look "special". So I only use the Flyertalk tag, it's so good and attracts attention ^:D It invites...

Haha, I'm sorry if I got it wrong, English is not my first language :)

I have always enjoyed posts by CIHY, sometimes superdry English humour but always correct, diplomatic and honest.

It's so appreciated to have both official and unofficial BA precense here ^
It gives me hope that "he whose name shall not be spoken" hasn't ruined BA completely.

CIHY is of course my favourite...

For me CE is all about 1A or 1F (Airbus). If I get one of those seats, I book CE. In fact, I will adjust flights just to get those seats :p

I will be first off the plane on arrival unless if bus...

Its strange though that AB limits "business class" to row 1, why?

If people want to pay 3x for a blocked middle seat and free drinks why not increase the rows on demand?

Interesting.

The concept is very similar to SAS+ on european routes. This is certainly good news for me as a BA Gold. I can now use AB for topping up my TP-level. Also, I can actually fly AB as I...

Seat belt length on 777/380, too short?

Now, I'm certainly not slim but I'm not that fat either. 100 kg 185 cm. A big guy sort of.

On all airlines I have no problem with the seat belt, it has plenty of length to adjust. On Emirates, I...

My first AB flight - a short review

I'm BA gold (emerald) traveling with four other (no status). ARN-TXL-ARN.
