Largely my feelings as well.

That looks likely resulting in the new class looking very much like the current First service at weekends.

I live very close to a West Coast mainline station but an hour away from MAN. By train I...

I've taken quite a few 'pauses' over the years and currently don't have a BA Amex although I must have had around 15 vouchers in my time and have 2 current in my BAEC account. While I fully...

It's another 'swings and roundabouts" situation. In the years when I was EXP I frequently felt that I was better treated on BA flights than I am now as BAEC Gold.

Would be good if it happens but over the 30 or so years I've flown TATL from MAN there have been so many rumours about direct services that simply haven't materialised. In fact the real story has...

That’s certainly true with return fares but in the past I’ve scored some decent (if not earth shattering) value from these sales with 1-way redemptions.

If the crux of the OP's question is whether any 2 F seats allow comfortable and convenient interaction then, for me, the answer is "no". The often maligned middle pair in Club are vastly superior in...

Good advice but I do wonder what value people put on the miles in their accounts and why they even bother if they have no activity of any sort for 18 months. A simple purchase of a few miles is just...
