Yes, it looks nice. It has a low score in the Apple App Store of 2.1/5 so I guess it still has many bugs.

Took me two goes to check in for a flight this evening (and the first time I seem to have changed sex without knowing it!) but so far so good.

It's not possible to access your booking if the booking has not been made online

I was trying to be generous But yes, it does make me feel good to have these IT consistencies between various airlines

Just a glimpse:

Manchester is a reasonably important city in the UK. In fact it's the nations second city, though don't tell Birmingham. It's on BA's network, of course (Birmingham isn't ...). Manchester has a straightforward, instantly recognised IATA code: MAN

However, input MAN In British Airways' system, and it defaults to Managua or Manchester (New Hampshire). Neither of those cities is on BA's network, and though I have no doubt both are wonderful places, I can't see them figuring too heavily in BA itineraries.

Lufthansa, a non-British carrier, accepts that Manchester UK is more likely to be the desired target when its customers search for MAN (that'll be common sense working, kind of reinforced by the IATA code business).



It's the sort of bug you get used to over the years, but it never fails to irritate
