OT: adios FT

I never made it to 5K posts, however over the years I'd like to thank all of you - particularly on the BA and QF boards - who've made this such an illuminating place. I hope I've given back in equal...

So to add my tuppence worth.... I've often flown LHR/LGW-MAD/BCN and, give the choice, would favour IB over BA in J, though I accept Y is a different matter, not least owing to IB charging for...

I still don't get this (I've doubtless missed the thread covering it). When you fly on QF they make a point of making an anno as soon as a touched-down flight is clear of the runway that you can...

I'm quite surprised that BA has gone for something which merely re-works the existing cabin concept, albeit presumably for seats which are cleaner and work most of the time.

Having just flown a...

For clarity: I had a paid F ticket (albeit in the discounted A fare bucket). I was originally booked on a 744 for all segments. The offer from QF to be "upgraded" to the 388 was a gesture from...

What I omitted to mention in my op was that the temperature situ was so bad that I asked if I could have a seat in J. The problem appeared localised to the F cabin, as I was able to get a perfectly...

Russell Crowe in 1K on BA7371 (QF31) SINLHR. Couldn't diguise my amusement when on my way to the loo I noticed that he was watching Gladiator on the IFE.

Yes already in paid F on a 744 for both sectors. Of course I'd like to fly the 380 but I don't consider what I've been offered to be an UG, merely a change of equipment at QF's suggestion.

QF F: when it goes wrong...

Not the best experience yesterday... The F hosts mucked up my spa booking so I ended up with a 30-minute treatment, rather than a 50-minute one. Small beer, but the best was yet to come. After...

The home hub airport has alot to do with it too. ZRH and FRA are breathlessly efficient compared to the giant turd that LHR is.
