You're right, even if you had some bank cash left, there is currently no part pay option other than miles.

Assuming the "permanent" Amex 10% continues - which isn't quite 10% due to taxes, so say...

No, Thailand is open from late on 30/06/20.

Yes, it could be extended, but at the time of writing this and at the time of BA cancelling, it is open.

Following completion of all the flights I thought it only fair to return and recount my experiences.

Valid points but going for 3/4 weeks is hard with even 2 carry on luggage. So a checked bag is far better.

Hmmmm, no-one is going to tell them anything until we're at check in at Bangkok coming back and even then we'd be saying we wanted to go to a hotel etc. not fail the last flight. 7.5 hour layover.

Massively. Departures from ARN are hugely discounted, less than 50% of the LHR-AUH-BKK return fare in business.

I usually fly ex LHR to BKK but there is a deal open which is ARN-LHR-AUH-BKK return.

Coffin seats vary, massively.

I flew Swiss recently and it was atrocious. Even the throne seat I bagged on the way back was small on footspace. Bad design I say. I'm 1.8m.
