“the status quo has worked well for decades”
not quite true VK – things have moved forward, travel has become far more economically available and requirements for customers and clients alike change. You cant live in past glories.
I agree totally with your comments about a retinue of bag carriers, but l also believe that BA should recognize the fact that gold card holders do at times travel with their family and it would be nice for the family to enjoy the benefits.
The upstairs club exec lounge (T5) is large enough to allow an area that could be used for family and guests.
The point about a gold card holder travelling on a discounted economy ticket, is ridiculous. End of the day, he has earned his Gold card status, stop being so pompus!
