I appreciate that but I mentioned travelling in premium economy. My point is that TPs earned doesn't seem to be proportional to distance travelled or fare paid. I'm sure there are plenty of threads on this. I'm off to do a search....

My mistake sorry.

Yeah I've seen a few threads discussing the TP system and how they work the numbers out according to class of travel. The conclusion was there is no fair system an example being a discounted 190 return CE fare qualifies for double the points that a 350 single CE fare would yield.

Some people will just never be happy.
Actually, I'm always happy.....

Thanks for all your comments once again.

I did indeed try out my (rusty) French, and Paris was very enjoyable, if a little hectic trying to cram in all the sights in about five hours.

BingBongBoy, thanks for your reasoning about the CE product - what you say makes sense, although I'm still of the opinion that the orange juice should at least be in a bottle.

The CDG-LHR sector trip report is currently slightly behind schedule due to other commitments, but should be up by next weekend...

Thanks to all

Great info about BA Club class, found it useful as I have not used it for many years. My wife and I are looking at using their better class of flying and wanted to know if the standards are the same as 20 years ago. Flying cheaply today, the food is crap, service slow ( die waiting for a drink) just poor all round. Also I was checking to see if Club Class aws just the same as standard class 10 years ago when you still got the hot breakfast or evening meal, not some awful roll

Would love to see your photos but the images do not appear. All I get is a black screen at the linked site. Please let me know what I'm doing wrong. Thank you.

Well I wasn't expecting to see this thread appear from the depths of early 2009!

Thanks for your comments - important to note that this report was written in 2009, and things have improved slightly since in Club Europe.

They're working fine for me! Go into your options on FlyerTalk and ensure the 'Show Images' option is ticked under Thread Display Options.
