Langdonfm - that is something I will never ever be able to understand about Virgin Atlantic and Sir Richard B. A few years ago Lufthansa the owner of BMI (formerly British Midland) put the airline up for sale. Although BMI was under performing its slots at LHR were the main draw card ...
Jul 20, 2017, 09.07 PM / British Airways "on track" for new A350 Club World business class
Agree with smit0847. Whilst it isn't great for us, the flying public, BA has had little motivation in spending hundreds of millions of pounds on a new seat to compete - because it hasn't had to. The money is in the bank to do it, so why haven't they? Because in short they contin...

Upgrading for cash or points depends on your circumstances I guess, especially for the intra european product. I've brought really cheap Y class fares on BA european flights then been offered the chance to upgrade to Club Europe for Â£89. For me that's not great value - with BA Gold/O...

I'm pretty close to this project. There will not be dine on demand. The main changes will be bedding (mattress toppers, improved pillows and blankets) and catering. In terms of catering if you have a look at how Turkish or Austrian does their inflight J class service it's pretty...
Jan 19, 2017, 01.30 PM / BA to adopt 'dine on demand' in Club World business class?
As mediocre as I generally find the whole BA Business Class experience on the ground and in the air, their T5 arrivals lounge is actually really excellent. It has separate dining rooms for First Class passengers (Concorde Breakfast Room) and Business Class/BA Golds. It is really spaci...

It is odd. I know during the QF/BA JSA both airlines had an agreement - Qantas wouldn't allow UK residents to join QF frequent flyer and BA wouldn't allow Australian residents to join Executive Club. Since the JSA disolved QF now allows UK residents to join their FFP but BA still hasn't changed...

Kayak is my absolute first 'go to'. It's just a search engine at the end of the day that allows you in one search to get the lowest price from hundred of sites. The only thing I would suggest is when you click to redirect to the selling site check the flight details very ver...

Not an expert moa999 but I guess it depends on what kind of bilateral agreement OZ/Indonesia has. For example Air Asia X flies MEL-DPS with A330's. These are registered to the Malaysian carrier, not the Indonesian carier Air Asia Indonesia (which only has A320's in the fleet). S...
