Another lovely enhancement from BABack to Forum
It did affect golds early on and I still was not fussed.
In fact, on UK domestic, I prefer sitting in row 1 or 2 as is quicker exit off the plane and allows me to enjoy a free drink and snack faster before a quick nap. I would never go for the middle of the plane.
And for Europe, i would tend to go Club Europe due to some of the good fares.
So no it would not bother me as a gold if they blocked emergency exits seats for all. I actually think it should be done at the gate or check in to ensure someone who meets the criteria sits there.13 Apr 2016

How many hours before check-in? I can get them on the website at -72, but the call centre cannot allocate them to me, before then.
I’m just going to count the weeks off, as they build – 10 is quite a while to fix an IT problem, isn’t it? In my days of programme management, I would have removed the senior IT manager after so long and found someone who could deliver results.16 Apr 2016
It is just under 2 weeks away – I believe it was more done in a way that the charge was waived as a slilver member (rather than automatic entitlement but I may be wrong!).
Not sure I would remove the IT manager but perhaps the comminications / PR manager as seems more likely a change of policy.16 Apr 2016
Strange sounds like another failure mode, as I (and the other silvers I know) can’t even pay, the seats are just blocked, until -72 hours.
Having just selected seats for two domestics, the overwing exit rows (both A320) were completely empty, which kind of tells its own story – I took row 1 in both cases, to get off quickly, but was surprised to see no overwings allocated.16 Apr 2016
Welcome to week 12 of this ‘glitch.’
I understand that BA has a team of 64 chimps cutting code, on the basis of the ‘Infinite monkey’ theory.28 Apr 2016
