    Business class in particular looks very impressive. Looking at the seat map, they also have a premium economy on board. I must have missed that??

    Does indeed look impressive…..

    Time for AC-VS & BA to figure out how they stay ahead of these pesky yanks….

    If the quality of service comes close to AC’s then BA is indeed in trouble…….Oh wait a minute…….don’t they share revenue ?.

    Indeed, they do share revenue thanks to BA Management’s foresight.

    Thanks for puffing another BA revenue generator, AOTG!

    VK …As i’ve said on other topics……this is a perfect example of a….

    CARTEL…..

    @VK, ‘BA Management’s foresight,’ really VK, it takes two or even more to tango, and as Star Alliance had already sewn up their Trans Atlantic Revenue Share, it is rather preposterous to say it was BA’s forethought, more likely playing catch up!

    @VK ‘Thanks for puffing another BA revenue generator,’ so you agree, AA’s product is superior and BA needs to rely on this as a revenue generator. Gosh, that’s a switch for you considering the sun shines out of BA’s back side in VK world!

    Foresight….. No
    Desperate…..perhaps.

    Need to remember that AA were BAs 3rd attempt at building a cartel across the pond with UA and US both rejecting its advances.

    In Europe too KLM and others were pursued before linking up with the mill stone that appears to be IB.

    @pdtraveller, I agree no where near BA miraculous foresight, however as AA was a founding memebert of OW, and certainly a better carrier than UA, US, and KL, I feel desperate is wrong. Scrambling is probably more likely not to mention Lucky!!!
