    Probably, More than a pilots salary is not enough for them to push 4 buttons. Go, Stop, Open, Close.
    Absolute joke and whole unnecessary. And why the LHR Express hasn’t used this as a ideal marketing tool offering free/discounted travel is anyone guess … . But that is the UK rail system for you.

    I agree… 150 quid for a 4 hour flight is an absolute no brainier, especially for a special occasion… However, as you are obviously wanting a window seat be warned that on the 767 there is no middle seat that is unoccupied as is the case with an Airbus. The window and aisle seat are EXACTLY the same as economy with shared arm rests etc. Check out my old review of my trip to Cyprus!! Enthusiast are just as happy at the back filming flaps and things, why not sit further back?

    I too got this email from BA and thought the same….

    Click here, to take you there, to input further information about yourself.

    In addition, the address came from britishairways_GB@fly.ba.com.

    Immediately looked suspicious, but then I now see the monthly email, check in confirmations and so on all come from odd looking addresses.

    They got to sort this out.

    If this latest email is genuine then Cruz needs to get down the newsrooms NOW and make a statement to advise, then announce his resignation.

    @handbag, I too have lloyds Avios master and amex. No foreign transaction fees and Avios accrued on both… HOWEVER… this product is no longer available, and I think when your cards expire that will be it sadly. I found this out by chance, lloyds have never told me.

    Yes.. * PLEASE * get rid of this soonest. Working for a Chinese company means everything Google related is banned. Including re capture. It’s infuriating beyond belief.

    If this is all as you say then take this to the press, tv, media whatever . BA will be ripped to shreds and crew involved probably suspended.

    My mum was equally disgusted to pay a hefty fee just to choose a business seat to Florida. Yes, this is the norm now… IN ECONOMY… for business I know of no other and is a total insult to business passengers. I would expect this at no charge, and once silver status is lost I would not be paying my money to BA that’s for sure.

    This sounds like total and utter incompetence beyond belief, and certainly you should threaten legal action if this is not sorted by xxdate. That would get your money back smartish as they wouldn’t have a hope. I would damn well expect a shower of avios to boot.

    I feel there is more to this story than meets the eye… The gentleman in question was from an agent called travel up. An agent notoriously known for undercutting everyone online, a no no practice when it comes to undercutting ba.com! Anyhow, that aside, fares to dxb are routinely on offer for 300 quid so it would not be unreasonable whatsoever. I my self have just booked a genuine fare to new York for the same quid plus tax on ba.com, and the flight time is longer. It is still live!!!!

    150 quid for a name change on an air ticket – seems reasonable. Most carriers would tell you to buy a new ticket.

    I find the fact that people are travelling without their confirmation/documents simply unbelievable.


    Ah,Mr.Bond

    That’s a fair enough comment…. With the savings made on fuel and also the additional income from no doubt selling another piece of luggage, it goes without saying they will of course be ploughing in this extra money to offer more spacious seats and heightened on board services!!!!!!!

    7 upstairs, 8 downstairs. The laughable irony is – there is more seats in a row in Business class than in Premium economy!!

    Im not surprised if their pricing is anything like the west Coast. Standard class, one way from London to north west England in May is currently 120 quid. I can it drive for 30 quid.

    Taking the poor “exchange rate” aside, one main problem I have found is you can not part pay with Avios on a mixed cabin booking. I would regularly fly out WTP and back CW. It will not give you the option. Is this due to be changed?
