Question on the new NEOs; Why are they all ploughing the same routes continuously? From what I can tell, they only ever fly LHR, LIS, WAW or BUD.

They are keeping them assigned to T3 and the above mentioned routes where possible due to their configuration. With a densified cabin, a lower Club Europe maximum capacity and different galley plans, it makes complete sense to restrict them to a set of routes until the fleet grows and more of the current fleet is reconfigured. It would be a logistical nightmare assigning them to different routes every day not know if there will be too many CE pax booked or if they have the correct galley plans assigned for the caterers.

BA have today ordered (via an undisclosed leasing company) three more 777-300ERs

interesting. 1980/90's technology. Wonder how long the leases are for?

BA came late to the B77W, much like launch customer United who will take their 18th frame this year.

Aren't the A35K and the B77W very similar in size and capability? The B77W would be cheaper I'm sure, but I'm with CC on this, think they are sacrificing longer term benefits for short term price. But hey, anyone can be an armchair economist!

When are they taking delivery as that could be a large reason?

Iran being dropped

Not a surprise under the circumstances, so a couple of slots free for something else?

Just tried booking series of Cityflyer return flights from City to Dublin. BA app returns 'no longer available from City, alternatives from Heathrow'.

Have I missed something, have they dropped the LCY - DUB services, when did they officially announce this change to services? Link?
Working fine for me on app and website. Tried various dates to end of the year.

Correction! App seems ok again. Was searching loads of different dates last night and this morning, all saying no longer available from City, try Heathrow. But you are correct, it now seems to be working ok and the route seems ok and available. Not sure what the problem may have been, but glad it's all ok now. I deleted my original message to remove confusion on this thread. As you were.

The only 'state' involved is the Board of BA who failed to take the major failure of systems in 2017 as the signal to change people and plans.

CRUZ SHOULD GO

Another in a long line of cox£uk under the stewardship of Cruz. As I am personally affected by this BS, and have received the email, I am distinctly unhappy and want to see this idiot gone, it won’t make much difference to the situation but it will make me feel better

His number is up, imho.
He's not in control of the business, too many serious issues have occurred. Board need to find a suitable leader.

Does the board of BA or IAG really actually care about this ?
The average individual passenger (including me) who has had to get their credit card replaced finds it annoying but this will probably all blow over in the press by next week. Information Commissioner Office will impose a token fine as a slap on the wrist, bug in the website gets fixed and whole things gets forgotten about by shareholders

Maybe not this, but the constant drip drip of such incidences costs

Repeat after me . . . G D P R
FINES & PENALTIES hit them in their corporate pocket. That will teach them to get their IT under control rather quickly. The only thing they will take notice of is a short sharp boot to the proverbial commercial nuts!

For a while, I was employed by a debt collection company (tracing people, not breaking fingers!) and my memory of the data protection legislation included something about personal data not being held any longer than needed for the immediate business at hand. This meant that once it has served its purpose, it had to be destroyed. If my memory is correct, then one has to wonder why BA feel it necessary to retain stuff such as the 3 digit security code from the rear of the cards.
