BA is mostly on time. I nearly always bag a reasonable fare. Service is normally fine and even though the 744's are old in the tooth, I'm always pleased to be on a blue, red and white tailed G-reg plane when over the heart of darkness.

Living in Africa with its daily ups and downs, when I arrive back in the UK, I get the sense most Brits have gone soft, lost there sense of place and adventure and think they are entitled to something they can't afford.

So fellow snowflake Brits, keep on moaning. I'll keep boarding my BA flight from Africa to Blighty as I am sure it will get me home to my family safe, without too much drama and at a reasonable fare.
God forbid we should want to actually improve something we're passionate about right? I mean let's all bow down and go home because you get your reasonable fares without too much drama. What a standard we should all be striving for! Thank you for such insight and perspective.

Passengers like you are what keep BA going. You're willing to accept the mediocrity and your stiff upper lip mentality because complaining would put you in with the "snowflakes". Cruz and Co love people like you. Nobody is entitled to something they can't afford but don't be under any illusion that you're getting a value based service for what you're actually paying for.
