    …that is the norm everyday at Changi Singapore. There is a competitive spirit amongst some passengers as to whether they can get to the belt before the bag arrives!!

    As many people who post here refer to travellers who fervently believe that “something is their right”, they the travellers always forget the other half of the equation namely responsibilities.

    I wonder how many premium passengers get out of bed in the morning and then dump the bed clothes on the floor and/ or empty a waste bin on the floor. A mere handful I guess.

    At the risk of stating the obvious if you are departing from T4S then if you are eligible for entry to the Business Lounge in T4 then you will be eligible for entry to T4S. There is a 4/5 minute train connection between the terminals with passport control after you ascend the escalators at T4S. If you are asking if you can pop over to T4S to get lounge access then no you can´t. You have to be departing on a flight with a boarding pass. The lounges at Madrid were pretty basic but the refurbished T4S lounge is an improvement so maybe that is what the T4 lounge will look like when complete – hopefully

    SQ, whilst not alone, is notorious at being overly rigid and petty in its policies. Friends of mine who are Solitare have had a stark “no” when querying action imposed by SQ that was clearly wrong. Remember the farce around SQ´s new website 5+ years ago when there was no apology or attrition forthcoming. Maybe I have been lucky or Cathay Pacific does know how to look after its top tier frequent flyers. I have been a Diamond Member since 1994 and in that time they have been incredibly helpful in my getting award tickets when none appeared available, offered an extension to miles that were expiring etc etc. In short I felt valued something many of us here have said the opposite. Living in Singapore this means mostly going to wherever via HKG which takes a little longer and sometimes more expensive or less expensive. Why would I fly with anyone else.

    Purely out of interest do you still get your full miles/avios/ponts if booked through an OTA?

    I made exactly this point in post #886861 above. The worst seat is 30G as you are adjacent to the toilet. It´s made worse by economy passengers being allowed access to that PEY toilet plus foot traffic from A,C and D seats from both PEY and Y using the bulkhead walkway to gain access.

    Panic over. Remember what Cruz said in his BBC interview quote “I have a formidable team working for me”!!.

    Your story opens up a whole host of possibilities and vulnerabilities. It needs to be sent up the line, to the top in fact with Air France and beyond albeit I am not sure if this is a matter for the French CAA or equivalent. I am sure other more knowledgeable forum members can comment

    Just watched Alex Cruz on BBC Breakfast. This was one of the BBC´s poorest interviews of a senior executive I have seen in a long time. Skipped over this being the many in a long list of IT failures and the BBC focused on confidence in BA. He ignored a half-hearted question about should he consider his position as it was asked in an almost apologetic manner. Cruz then launched into ” we have a formidable team delivering new products , destinations and we stay close to our customers”. He didn´t look at all confident almost willing himself to get through the interview unscathed. I guess he had to stay strictly with a script probably written by WW. He did confirm that anyone affected financially would be compensated. Only after the interview finished did the presenter refer to this being the latest in a series of IT failures but also noted that BA, notably Cruz were quick to be visible this time, whereas in the past Cruz went AWOL. Fortunately Cruz was not wearing a high viz jacket!! How long can Cruz hang on given the TSB CEO was removed over an IT failure?.
