The QR White Company PJs are perfectly fine to me :)
Cheap, sure, but they're comfortable. Anyone who's seen me knows I favor comfort over form.

I should add that in that occurence, BA was loading scripts from other websites on their payment page for marketing purposes. There's a very easy fix for this: Don't do it!

I don't think you'll get any better for INCEU60. However, I thought Qatar had a codeshare to TPE... but if you can't get on this, Avios redemptions for HKG-TPE are cheap. SIN is going to be more...

There's another easy route, HEL-LAX-LAS and I would personally try to claim for ORC, but I do not know if that's foolproof. Maybe someone else will be able to chime in.

Alternatively, I never have...

Montreal Mirabel for me. I was a kid then so I don't remember much, but I quite liked the buses that attached to the plane and slowly went down again like a lift.

I do get it though - I was thinking of the economics of it, it makes sense for the company's bottom line. (And in the end, that's also what companies are thinking about)

It really makes sense... there is something going off in my brain whenever I smell Qatar or Cathay. The fragrances they chose are amazing. It's quite odd but walking in the lounge in HKG made me feel...

Seems like it, at least for short hops. I've been offered two bottles straight up and even one to take home. I had to decline as I already had loaded up on Belgian beer, and that's enough for me to...

This is incorrect.


I've sometimes found routes like the following for about 2000 GBP. Don't think there are good fares on CX/BA right now though, but when they pop up, it's worth trying the...

Picture this: BA has my credit card details but left all doors and windows opened, as they do every day. They also don't have any CCTV or security staff. BA was grossly negligent, without the shadow...

I thought this would have been about any of the other stressful factors in GVA. I would reckon that, given GVA's track record, OP had a good experience.

I love how BA is trying to make us believe that a simple XSS attack is "sophisticated".

Maybe I should wear a tuxedo next time I practice my penetration testing skills. Then I'd be sophisticated.

Sounds fair - through DFW would do it :) 2k is a good fare, in the last year only rarely did I see better, and it was in the ballpark of 1850 or so.

I think you should be able to get it around 2k if you wait for the next deals. For 820TP smaller cities on the West Coast and Australia are also an option.

I dress like you and fortunately haven't had the issue yet. If it's not a problem for so many check-in counters in so many airports, why should YYZ be any different?

My answer would have been "I...

I've had a QSuite on QR171/172 as advertised now (but it was a regular A350 when I booked). This is a recent change, though, and they may revert it.

Cheaper booking classes tend to be fed in 6 months out - although it is not guaranteed, especially if it's a popular flight!

I asked for champagne and all I got was dodgy prosecco. The flight was full so somehow they didn't have time for PDB / Towels.

I agree with OP. I enjoy CW, and also enjoy my short-haul flights with BA. WTP was dreadful. They decided that having 4 CC for WTP+WT on a 788 was adequate. It is not. The seats are useless if you...
