Unfortunately it was no tslow booking but a faulty system. Unless I was too slow ten times! BA staff have admitted to me that the fault was theirs. A fare was showing in the web site that was not available – hence being unable to book it after completing the process ten times. BA have admitted fault just seem not to care about wasting the time of a Gold Card Holder and offering fares that do not exist. Its like walking into a shop and going to the checkout to be told all the prices are more expensive than those on display. In that environment you at least have recourse to trading standards!
