Interesting string of messages, I was totally committed to BA having been a super commuter between BRU and LHR/LGW for 5 years. I was able to choose my carrier when on business and always picked BA (when you have the choice of SABENA and its successors in all its guises, Air France etc – BA is the only choice.) After spending a week in CAI to get back on a BA aircraft was like coming home. I have tried our colonial cousins from across the pond but they have no sense of service – and please that phrase ‘have a nice day’ urggggghh and dont start me on with the ‘can i get’ from fellow passenges. However my partner and I have discovered the delights of QR and as all our travel is now for pleasure we tend to fly to QR destination always in F or J class.
