    I take it you didn’t see GreenScots post a couple above yours about dominant pessimism

    Did’t your mother tell you if you haven’y anything nice to say, say nothing. Perhaps the ‘8st’ should be replaced with “ank”

    do try and get a treatment in the elemis spa – in theory at least F passengers can pre book.

    Last 3 times trying though 2 instances of not available exactly a month out (when a month is the max you can book) and 1 instance of having a booking only to be told on arrival they had ‘lost it’.

    Elemis treatment staff are as rare as Pandas in Edinburgh zoo I reckon.

    Interesting thread. I’ll too be flying BA F for the first time ever in about 3 weeks LHR-MEX on the B789 and i’m pretty much excited about it. Thanks for the infos about booking the Elemis Spa. I’d have otherwise just gone to the lounge and straight to the plane.

    There’s only two of them and they don’t seem to get on with each other ?

    It was an amazing experience when I flew first time to the UK

    With the Busta Rhymes and Thorbjorn Olesen sagas this hasn’t been a vintage week for BA First……

    Seems there are a few unhappy travellers around, not helped by usual spineless BA handling. Even the BA boys on FT have given this a wide berth.

    In the article on Thorbjorn Olsen, it says that a witness told the newspaper: ‘He started abusing some of the passengers and crew and then made a pass at one of the female passengers before taking a leak in the aisle. It was shocking behaviour. You would expect it maybe on a budget airline but not in the first-class cabin on BA.’

    Assuming this was not simply a made-up quote by The Mail, I had better adjust my expectations when I fly Ryanair next month.

    I thought BA was a budget airline these days?

    I am not sure drunk people flying first class on BA are more advisable than drunk people flying with a low cost airline. Quite the contrary !
    (Please note this is not BA first class passenger bashing but BA first class drunk passenger bashing).
