Interesting was Victoria C-M’s quote of BA being in a “race to the bottom”. This race appears to be entirely between BA and USA airlines (although special mention to the improving Delta – but only on the right legs).
This is my last year of EC Gold, and good riddance to years of deteriorating, rude service (occasionally wonderful, but who wants odds of 5 to 1?), tired aircraft and seats.
Intercontinentally, like many other posters, I either fly on the ever-improving ME3, or out of Europe on LH/AF, and enjoy it.
BA simply fills me with trepidation.
