I used the showers at HEL one morning a couple of weeks ago, connecting from SIN to LHR. The shower rooms are proper sized bathrooms with the toiletries listed by an earlier poster and of course...

Yes - slippers (new design, matching the new bags) were on the seat for each passenger upon boarding. The actual kits were handed out after take-off.

I had the new bag for the first time on HEL-SIN this week. I like it - feels like a big improvement compared to the envelopes! Also compares favourably to many of the airlines I fly (SQ don't have...

Of course some airlines don't even have pyjamas in F (UA, to take one example)!

I quite like the pyjamas QF offer in J - simple, light and do the job. LX F are my current favourites, though I also...

In my limited experience it is the same general rule across Oneworld carriers - the operating carrier must be Oneworld for OneWorld benefits to apply. So, for example, the following flights would not...

This echoes my experiences (though I have been flying SIN-MUC-MAN and not just the tag on). In F and J there is a light meal/snack, pre departure drinks, the bar is fully open. No pyjamas and pretty...

BA doesn't compete with CX, MH et al with Club Europe, any more than QF or VA Domestic Business or AA Domestic First does. Compared to the products it actually competes with, I think BA do reasonably...

Seems to be a recurring systems issue. I have had the same anomaly show up several times in the past when checking the status of BA11 on flightstats.com, Google and the like. No idea why this happens...

PVG and PEK are not ZRH or FRA.

The problem isn't with the data as such, but with Chinese immigration rules, which are strict and a little behind the times. You may have noticed that immigration...

It seems to be more bureaucracy than technology issues at work. SIN has also introduced a rule requiring the full first name of the passenger to appear on the boarding pass - for some carriers whose...

In my limited experience of flying the route, loads can be all over the place - sometimes packed, sometimes very few passengers. This is especially true in winter.

Nothing. BA own the land around that end of the airfield (or at least have a very long lease on it). Indeed BA generate revenue from other airlines parking aircraft there from time to time.

PEK to Beijing South should take under an hour at that time on a Sunday. Allow double that on a Friday afternoon! Price will be around 100RMB and probably more like 85RMB - this includes the 10RMB...

My former home airport!

Not even Air China has an Arrivals lounge at PEK T3. There are no showers landside that I am aware of in the terminal. There are no Priority Pass lounges landside at PEK....

I've flown both the A380 (on QF and SQ several times) and B787 on QR (just the once). Neither are revolutionary, but they're both interesting advances in terms of the passenger experience on board...

I like both BA and SQ (and indeed QF A380), but for different reasons. None is a perfect product - I don't think any Business Class product can be and still get away with charging a decent...

I don't commute the way you will, but I am SIN-based and fly both SQ and BA in J, so will give you my opinions.

The commute will be significantly tougher than NYC, especially given the flight time...

My first BA flight was MAN-BRU, also on a 737-200, but not until 1999. The world tails livery was much in evidence, both on the plane and also on the snack boxes served on board. No rear facing seats...

You can check bags through - especially if all flights are on one booking. You just can't claim Star Alliance benefits on the Silk Air flights.

I agree that CX and BA don't serve the route, but I can't see how you would describe the route as anything other than heavily served.

It's currently served by 10 airlines, with the route handling...
