It is clear to most people that something has gone wrong at BA in rgd to premium travel. the new 1st class cabin is mutton dresssed up as lamb for many different reasons. if u compare it to Qantas 380 1st then the difference is such that actually you wonder why anyone would even consider flying BA to Oz or Sing. The same applies if u compare it to SIA or CP or any od the ME airlines. i continue to use BA on short haul only because i want to keep my exec status so can use lounges to shower when needed etc. there was a time when there was a real good atmosphere in the premium cabins on BA but these days the employees really have a very bad atitude – this is very apparant. my advice to you is that if you want to have a comfortable journey, give BA a miss.
