Reading material with BABack to Forum
T5 First Lounge this afternoon – plenty of copies of The Sun (for the predominantly London readership) but also adequate supplies of The Times, the ‘I’, FT and Irish Independent. Big pile of BTs as well…8 Feb 2018
GF T5 yesterday afternoon, piles upon piles of The Sun and about 3 copies of the i, and that was it for English newspapers.
A busy Saturday, being the start of UK school’s half term, but suspect BA’s restocking could be improved.
(Only spotted a single copy of BT).
Over at the B lounge, a wide range of English papers and a similar amount of variety just before reaching the air bridge.11 Feb 2018
T3 F Lounge had The Sun, The i, The Times and possibly the FT. Concorde from JFK had similar. On boarding F, the CC lady lamented about how she missed the Daily Mail, as she used to love a read of it on the way home for an overnight flight, although she couldn’t remember why they stopped supplying it. There was only one choice on board, though I cannot quite recall what it was as it didn’t appeal to me! I knew VA had fallen out with the DM but wasn’t sure about BA.14 Feb 2018
As an aside, flew Norwegian from EDI last week ……
At the gate (regardless of airline) you have a choice of the following….
The Sun, The Scotsman, The Times (Scottish edition) and a few magazines including Scottish Rugby.
A few of my less experienced travelling companions were raging that they had already purchased their newspapers from WH Smith !!
Oh, and thoroughly enjoyed my flight with Norwegian, and reinforces my belief that BA can no longer call themselves a premium airline, buts that’s for another topic.14 Feb 2018
Glasgow again this morning – The Times, FT, Scotsman, Herald and (a first), The Guardian – maybe as an predote (is there such a word?) or precursor to what awaits in T5!!15 Feb 2018
