The poor communications with pax (not for the first time) and the totally inadequate data resilience after the outage last year rather supports the pilots' contention that BA has lost the plot by...

I am about to fly BA long haul and some of the comments here and elesewhere have been very off putting. If I had a choice, I might have used another airline but the flight is part of a package....

How about looking at it as a discount?

I've just booked a return flight for two to France this summer peak time for £280 total. Ryanair offered a 20% discount on the price if I allowed them to allocate us any random seats and restrict us...

Respect after an accident

Anyone who works with the bereaved and the dying knows that the one thing they absolutely hate is people going round with long faces and hushed voices, avoiding mentioning the d- word. Having...

Thanks

Thanks for the replies - I have been away hence the long delay in acknowledging. Unfortunately I can't take a photo as they are banned in the cinema. I'll see if I can find the pic on YouTube -...
