Why limit yourself to one?
It is possible to go to the Cathay J lounge (there is a Business and First lounge) for noodles and dumplings, then Qantas for pepper squid and gin, or espresso martinis, pop into the American Lounge if you need to download anything (super fast broadband), these are all with in say 50 meters of each other and very easy to lounge hop.

I didn’t want to start a new thread for this Finnair question.
Has anyone ordered a Special Meal on Finn? In particular he Chef’s Gourmet or the Food Lover’s Treat?

There is a way to still get the email quote.
Rather than using the fields in the middle of the new BA page, use the drop down/click menu on the top left (under the British Airways logo), click “Flights and holidays” then “flights”. Then follow the wizard and it will take you to the “old” screen, where it offers you “email price quote”
Hope that helps.in reply to: BA Price Quote Email. No longer available15 Aug 2018
Thanks everyone, much appreciated, and also reassuring that I have things in hand (fortunately I’m an accountant and my company is great with pension schemes – we are still on a final salary pension), but will make the necessary enquiries re tax.
Negotiating on flights to and from HK for me on a regular basis, I will still look after a small team in the UK, so that should be a given, and think I may get flights for the OH (no kids here) to join me for Christmas and New Year in Hong Kong (or else where in SE Asia, fortunately he is understanding me being out of the country for our wedding anniversary.
Exciting times! and from reading everyone’s experiences of overseas postings – there are some serious positives to it.
Thanks again.in reply to: International secondments6 Jul 2018
I’ve seen someone if F signing a landing card with a fountain pen and it was like a scene from a black & white horror movie. The ink was EVERYWHERE! and the more he panicked to blot it/wipe it up, the more he spread it around.

A fountain pen – don’t they leak when flying?
I have one of them too – was given it as a gift from the OH to celebrate my first day working in the City. I duly took it along to my very first signing and caused chaos as we had to wait AGES for my 20 odd signature pages to dry.
It now has a pride of place on my desk, next to my iPad charger.in reply to: Third World Tech13 Jun 2018
The website says 32 for GCH, for “British Airways, OpenSkies and BA CityFlyer flights”in reply to: GCH baggage allowance – Cityflyer13 Jun 2018
Thanks Openfly. I am BAEC Gold, so I’m used to seeing empty seats up front.
Great news that the trolley services gets going at wheels up – if I drink enough I may be able to make a personal profit on the flights 🙂 Also the lounge in Valletta looks interesting. I’ll just chalk it up to a life experience – and take pics and may post a review of this leisure trip for other interested travellers.in reply to: Titan Airways operation for BA13 Jun 2018
I also don’t mind “reach out” maybe I have many Californians in my live, or maybe I see it as a cover all term that includes social media messages to brands etc. I see it and the English language evolving and I’m grateful for it – I wouldn’t like to still be saying “I’m off to the ye olde Apple shoppe to buy my iPhone X”)in reply to: Does anyone HATE being referred to as “Guys”13 Jun 2018
Hi have no issue with “guys”, in fact I find it rather pleasant when being addressed as a group. I guess its horses for courses and the challenge for users of the word – particularly in the service industry – is reading your guests.
I know it’s seen as mainly an American thing, I personally associate “Hi Guys” with the Irish and nothing sounds bad with an Irish accent. Imagine walking into a Dublin pub, sitting down at the bar and a young man says, “Hi guys, what can I get ye” I can taste the Jameson now.in reply to: Does anyone HATE being referred to as “Guys”13 Jun 2018
This disappoints me (not saying I am surprised). I am booked on a long weekend away to Malta in September (and the 160 TP are handy too). For the dates I wanted its BA out and Titan for BA on the way back, I could have picked another date I guess but I wanted to try the product – there aren’t many (if any) reviews. Oh well, live and learn – for the price I paid, I feel I’ll get the TP and overall value for money! Wait – Do they at least have champagne on the flight?
Just checked my booking – and it is appears a fairly full flight in “Club” for a Wednesday in September first 6 rows of club are reserved.in reply to: Titan Airways operation for BA13 Jun 2018
