I think the OP has received a smidge more snark than was warranted here. The constant, and often overblown, media coverage is getting rather grating and has stoked up fear rather than sought to...

Am I the only one who finds this recent hysteria over mask use a little troubling? Many with medical training on the boards have confirmed what my brother (also a medical doctor) told me weeks ago:...

Lost item on BA192 - Great service from Bagport

Last Friday I arrived in to London from Dallas. Despite a 2 hour delay leaving the US, the flight home was swift due to the prevailing winds, and I also had the benefit of an empty adjacent seat.

Well, quite. That was my point. I wasn't focused so much on CDG or AMS, rather on GLA or EDI which are to BA as TXL is to LH: domestic cities with regular service to a hub for onward connections, but...

Yes, free seat selection on WT+ seats from OLCI. But bear in mind:

It's a small cabin on the 744. There is not a huge choice to begin with.

It sounds as though you may have flown one of the older ĎCEOí (current engine option) short-haul Airbus aircraft, with black leather seating. If so, those seats are indeed pretty decent IMO for short...

This is an interesting itinerary in that you got to experience opposing ends of BAís market in a single trip. Namely, Basic Economy on a European point-to-point hop and First Class Long Haul. While I...
