I do agree that this is the regulations working as intended but worth saying that, even with some of the taxi drivers in UAE, I think AUH > DXB in less than an hour is optimistic, it's ~130km...

I think you should get compensation but it'll likely require some persistence and possibly CEDR. Given the circumstances BA will likely say it's outside their control as it appears the ground staff...

My apologies, you are correct, I had mentally recalled a couple of recent flights as being on Neo aircraft but they were all A321s (in my defence, in CE it's all the same)

They've been operating out of T5 for some time now, they could reasonably turn up on virtually any shorthaul route at this point....

I will confess to occasionally deciding another 20 minutes sleep on the way back from JFK was preferable to bothering to change on the plane and been 'that person' at immigration. I have subsequently...

Going back a bit but I was also meant to be on this flight (actually BA16 from SYD then BA12) - having seen the text from BA I turned up in SYD with a few CX reroute options to 'suggest' but on...

The staff will even bring you a roll pre-filled with bacon to save you the hard work if you ask nicely!

I aim to approach security with the understanding that different airports and countries have different rules to each other and being a member of staff at security screening can't be a whole heap of...

Do you need to be on BA at all? My preference is LHR>HKG>SYD/MEL on Cathay start to finish personally (I'm not a fan of the QF or EK J product despite the ability get tier points that way now) but if...

Wouldn't that be possible as an 8th freedom flight however in the same category as QF11 (SYD>LAX>JFK)?

Well, Jamaica to Penn station on LIRR is actually about 5 minutes quicker station to station than Newark to Penn but I'll acknowledge that time savings by avoiding JFK AirTrain probably equal that...

I'm sure I'm repeating a question here but I can't see a clear answer - what are the best pair in CW on the 773? I currently have 10AB and 10JK for a SIN<>SYD trip and what I seem to be hearing is...

I will also get my last trip on the 767 on 781 later next week by the looks of things. To be honest, after three years of taking that flight at least monthly, I'm not going to be tremendously sorry...

Depends what you prioritise, door 2L (behind front cabin) is often used at both ends (I don't know about ATH specifically though) which means you'll be far from first off which I consider one of the...

I'm not at all surprised at the love for SJC and my experience is that in premium cabins, SJC is regularly more expensive than SFO already at some times of year (priced ex LHR anyway).

There's already a pair of AA flights to CLT which makes that fairly unlikely I'd say, given the joint venture. Palm Springs I'm really not sure could handle anything big enough to fly that far, would...

Seem like an unusual (perhaps even unlikely) choice, it's a nice city for sure and the IT sector there is reputedly growing nicely. It doesn't have any international flights currently I don't believe...

I think broadly, while the eagle's nest setup for AA regionals at LAX continues to exist, the USA is unable to be used as a model for how any airport anywhere should operate.
