It's not just the F lounge. Really got my goat in the B lounge a few weeks ago over the fact people seem to think it's acceptable to use facetime, bellowing at their phone & leaving the rest of us to...

Yes, but the problem isn't just the length of the train ride. You're sacrificing a whole day of your vacation and could be spending 3hrs sitting at Kings Cross waiting for your train - yet still run...

No.

BA silver doesn't help with arrivals lounge access.

So just go straight through to T5 departures and the BA lounge. As RoI is in the Common Travel Area, you will need to clear immigration...

A bit random, but if anyone is looking for a comparable fare in August, I see SK offer £1493 from MAN-HKG, so long as you route one way via PEK.

I think you can, as I did it on a cheap CE flight that was part of the same promo. £50 per sector plus any fare difference, plus any admin charge by the issuer.

I won't ask - I just work on the basis that they're all as bad as each other and occasionally leave a rental relatively surprised/happy!

Is there any way you can amend the air ticket to be AUS-LHR-EDI?

4hrs would be about right, but the risk is your flight is an hour late, immigration is backed up and the tube is rubbish, meaning...

Enjoy the First Class Lounge.

It's as good as impossible to go from the lounges to landside now - I'm not au fait with the whole story, but just forget about that.

Booked easyjet tickets & don't need all of them - what to do?

I booked 5 tickets for the family to go from the UK to Austria on easyJet. Now it seems we can't all travel.

I see I can rebook onto another flight but the change fee is quite punchy and it seems...

And you can probably join your folks for a glass of something fizzy in F after the meal service if you have a word with the crew. The 777 F seats have a buddy seat opposite.

As Socts_Al says, the queues for tickets at Gatwick are horrific, mostly I believe as a result of the incredibly complex array of fares on offer into London.

If that's the case I would avoid the Avios route if you can spend them on something else/they're not about to...
