Distant memory but yes it was on the ground floor originally. It ended up on the second floor (before it closed) but not sure when that change took place.in reply to: Well, we are now well into our round the world trip.9 Jul 2018
Be sure you (and your family) have the proper level of travel and life insurance.
You should ensure you get a serviced apartment in HK, and if possible one that’s roomy enough to accommodate your family when they visit.
If you need a tailor, avoid the eg Sam’s of this world and try W.W Chan.

Bernie Inns. Now there’s a name to conjure with!
Prawn cocktail, Rump steak with crinkle cut chips and peas, and BFG for afters. For about £3.

Many (35?) years ago a hotel chain in the UK (don’t remember which) had a policy of having a “social table” in their restaurants. Single diners, on entering the restaurant, were given the option of a table of their own, or joining the social table.
A no pressure way of offering the option for those who wanted it. From memory it was a popular option.2 Jul 2018

I’ve never been bussed on a QR flight from LHR; the aircraft are normally parked at a gate close to the lounge. But agree with the sentiment though. Flying from DXB or DOH in F or J you get a bus dedicated to your cabin. Unlike the BA cattle trucks at LHR.in reply to: BA Premium Tarmac Transfers16 Jun 2018
What a lovely gesture.
Travelling in BA F and my wife discretely mentioned to the CSM that it was my birthday. She replied she would mention it to the crew and ensure I was “spoilt rotten”.
