I live in deepest Cheshire. EK send me an E Class pick up from home, EY an XJ. If I do BA, which is increasingly rare these days, I get a limo pick up, normally an A8, but it costs me £80. And £80 when I come home.
The EK and EY lounges at MAN offer waiter service dining. When I fly in EK F to Singapore week after next, I will get something along the lines of a Corton Charlemagne, against , maybe, a GC Chablis from BA.
And the EK ticket will be around 50% of the price of the BA equivalent.
