In all honesty, while I do often criticise BA, I find any comparison with low cost to be preposterous.

BA departs from major airports, which offer a better ground experience and city connections...

1, 2 and 3 are easy - just show the BA Gold card and you'll get in. Most of the time the agent won' t change the FF number on your booking but even if it does so, a quick phone call to BA call centre...

I recently mentioned in another thread the AF447 crash and I am not surprised to read the above about the Concorde.
