    I thought this nonsense was only for Economy? They seriously applying this to Club?….. If I was in Club, I would be boarding whenever I want. I would not care less what “group” is on the boarding pass.

    @capetonianm – Traveltrolley/Southall [Flysharp is another of their brands] are perfectly fine… SO LONG … as you travel on exactly what you booked. Don’t try and change/cancel anything. Get your airline locator and keep a watchful eye yourself for any schedule changes etc, don’t rely on them to tell you. Ive used them and saved 200 quid over other agents on a QR J class ticket.
    At least they have their HQ office in the UK, unlike MANY other agents on these comparison sites…. those you have to watch out for.

    That’s rubbish GBAIR72 as I called BA up re my next Glasgow flight and explained that this error message is all that ever came up for this, and my flight last month… he did it for me then and there, if it was no longer available he would not have been able to do it. It is an IT thing and not an availability issue as I tried as soon as I received the message and continually, even days later when I was still being offered the upgrade price.
    Re the security issue Swissdiver mentions, again, I don’t buy that either. I tried on my laptop, on my work PC, and also on my phone via the app. Everything came back with the same messgae. Grrrrrrrrrr!
    Lodged a complaint about it and will see what they make of it.

    Meanwhile Putney High street is littered with new vaping shops, done up like fancy bars glamorising the entire thing, something cigarettes did in the 70s which now would be totally unthinkable and unacceptable.
    This is no coincidence, these shops would never afford the rents in Putney, or elsewhere in central london for that matter. The cigarette companies have without doubt admitted defeat that this is the future and no doubt are somehow involved in the explosion of these shops.
    Elsewhere in the world however.. ‘baccy is still king and will not admit defeat, and banning e-cigs is the only thing they know what to do.

    These get deleted immediately. Filled one in years ago after a bad experience, no feedback whatsoever, and nothing ever changed.. so whats the point? They are 3rd party surveys anyway. For the bin, unless they want to pay me 20 quid per each 4 that I fill in.

    What I find hugely worrying about yesterdays carry on is that LHR hardly got any snow. Yes there was some, I woke up with about 2mm of slush which soon disapeared, that’s is! North of London, Essex etc got the most of it. BHX, STN were badly affected, neither of which BA fly to. I would expect maybe some Manchester flights to be stuck at LHR, little else.
    I had friends travelling back from New Orleans yesterday who where stuck on the tarmac on arrival for 2 hours. Can somone explain why? And what will happen should LHR actually be under a few [still not much really] inches of snow? The whole scenario yesterday reeks of unprepared incompetence.

    Heard it all now!…. And just how does this reduce costs?
    The only thing it will increase is the time it takes for everyone to board.

    The Chu Chi tunnels day trip in HCM…. but by speedboat, NOT the bus tours. I went with les Rives Experiences. Also did a Mekong delta day trip through them which was very good.

    You mention that you would not fly the 777 again… this is the same set up across the entire fleet and has always been the case. would probably suggest shifting your business to another carrier like many have done. I would not accept an aisle seat now in this cabin, and would struggle to accept paying anymore than a good I class offer for anything other than the last row window where you do not have to climb over anyone.

    They are obliged only to get you from A-B…. that doese not even have to be on the same day as the ticket I am afraid. Option “A” would fulfill that.
    Option “B” is a take it or leave it alternative. Unless it is urgent that you get there same day i would stay in the Sofitel [nice] and also take the many hundreds of EUR in compensation you are entitled to [which no doubt they did not tell you about].
    If the product is disgraceful then I would make comment.

    This probably is correct, it’s worth every penny to sit on that 20 year old 3 cabin, unrenovated chickenbus!! Trust me Tom, even WTP is not worth it on this thing, I would stay in Y if I were you.

    @steve – yet they probably had Bucks fizz on the menu?…. oh wait, that would have been the prebottled stuff from Marks and Spencer.
    No orange Juice??, seriously??

    Just use an Oyster card [if you have one] and use Southern Rail. It charged me 9 quid LGW-Clapham, probably allow another couple of quid to take you into London Zone1.
