Going back to the new routes I've always understood that BA has multiple market segmentations. The obvious one is business versus tourists/VFR. But much of their network these days is based on...

I wonder if it has something to do with the original financing of the aircraft. Rent/lease an aircraft and you'll be paying for it as long as you have it in the fleet. On the other hand if you buy...

I feel there may be some ambiguity in the word "passport". It is arguable that we need not only a solution for international travel but for domestic purposes too.

I've seen 2-4-2 on a 767 and, believe me, you don't want to fly from Vancouver to Europe in those seats! It's not the number of seats across that's critical but the width and pitch.

Rather than count how many rows you are from an exit I look for "landmarks". Things like bulkheads, toilets, galleys. Works for me on wide bodies, perhaps not so effective on narrow bodies.
