I'll second the suggestion to download and manage this through the AA app. The baggage tracking alone is worth it.

You can do an airport upgrade for cash (and indeed now Avios albeit at a poor rate) subject to availability. Ahead of that, you can't do a cash upgrade on a redemption via the website or contact...

I was too young to appreciate this at the time, and hadn't heard of it until I saw the OP posting here some years back. I applaud her/his efforts in keeping this awful event in our minds. It's a...

Regarding the train suggestion. I'd be surprised if someone noticed a person boarded, put a bag in the luggage racks and moved through the carriage and then got out of a carriage further down. They...

It's hard to disagree with the points made, but if you have to travel around Europe, who does it much better?

I've said it before on this thread but worth repeating. If you are UK resident and register (online) with your local public library service, most offer PressReader free of charge. You can then...

Do the staff there go and get food and drink for the passengers in such cases? How do they handle payment? Or do they take the passenger? My recollection is that there weren't spare people around to...

How did she get her baby through the airport? I'd have thought juggling a baby in arms plus carry on bag(s) through the terminal was trickier than eating with a baby on her lap.

I allow a decent slug of contingency as I live 100+ miles out so would plan for 2-3 hours. Most of the time this leaves ample time for all that's on offer. Occasionally it might mean I only have an...

I thought bookings were always priced in the currency of the departure country and then converted to any other currency that the person wishes to pay in. So I guess that part of the booking (your...

But it happens with such frequency that the policy is either knowingly and conveniently ignored, or there is a worrying lack of supervision.

Yes, assuming you have normal guesting privileges you are breaking the 'one guest' rule. It's not one guest per lounge, or even one guest at a time. It's just one passenger.

I am guilty of frequently skipping t&cs. But experience has taught me that BA promotions are rarely as simple as the marketing headline suggests. I now read them carefully before signing up and I bet...

You can't mix different fares for different people on the same booking. As a gold member, you can request free seat assignments for passengers on the same flight providing they are in the same cabin....

This happens to me regularly.

Does your partner's name come before yours alphabetically? Mr W's does and I've often wondered if that's the reason. He is invariably passenger 1 on the seat map too.

That's interesting. I drop status tomorrow and it's the one Gold perk that I thought I would miss. Has this changed recently - anyone know?

Hmmm, I drop to Silver tomorrow (well end of July technically) after 10+ years of Gold. That's come from a bit less travel and booking flights by schedule and price rather than alliance. That started...

If you can get exit seats, does that mean you are Gold? If so, what about forcing a GPR for 2 x Avios on the 380? It always feels an expensive way to go, but compared with double Avios for an...

I'll go the other way on this.

I am no fan of 787 Y either. But when flying Y I generally prefer to hunker down and get it over with as quickly as possible so I wouldn't be keen to trade a direct...

Why would you book your own ticket with Avios and then split the booking and cancel? That seems a long way round. You could have just booked your wife's ticket and then used your Gold status to...
