    Yup…T3 BA First lounge isn’t called The Dungeon for nothing! Most people in the know avoid this dump in favour of the Cathay First lounge, plus there are the other choices of the Qantas and American First lounges in the vicinity, both better than The Dungeon.

    They have been trying to stop the mice entering the lounge as they neither travel First or hold a Gold card. I have seen the Mouse family several times, Mickey, Minnie and the mouselets, but the desk staff are bored with all our complaints!

    BA Premium travel through T3 is, and always has been, a national disgrace.

    I’ve been begging BA for years for Zero beer, but nobody listens. BUT, for the last three years, all Iberia services and lounges have Zero beer available.

    Also, Qatar have a very expensive Zero champagne in business and First. The same is available in Harrods at a horrendous £35!

    So rferguson is highlighting the inconsistency of the BA service.

    If a refund isn’t involved, such as on a missed short-haul connecting flight, you call the Exec Club. They will credit your account with the Tier Points and Avios that would have been earned. I’ve done it twice this year and had instant success from the helpful BA Exec Club staff.

    Drove along the B2036 just to the east of the LGW runway earlier.

    In a quarter of a mile I saw a convoy of police vehicles, a Transit and 7 police cars coming towards me, two police cars parked under the approach and another two police cars parked after another two hundred yards!!!

    They were all full of police.

    They are sooo desperate to spot a drone, to avoid the almost certain embarrassment that is about to ensue.

    I hope I don’t get burgled, coz I surely won’t get the police to attend….😀

    #bamagic….we will get you there on time! Or, our crews will treat you like a First Class passenger in First! Or, we will answer our phones in less than 20 minutes! Or, we will increase the legroom in Club Europe to 35inches, like the old days! That’s real magic….😀

    ….a rap on the knuckles and 10 hours community service (watching for drones!). This is the U.K. we mustn’t infringe their human rights.

    Great idea but there is the possibility that BA might retain the reward seats for sale at commercial fares.

    Most seats will have been booked by Golds and Silvers for free. Seats closest to the front get the best choice of hot meals plus an earlier drink as the trolley wends it’s way rearward through the CE cabin.

    It appears that the work-experience kid at BA bought the cheap economy version of the awful FLY check-in system and this low cost version can’t cope, or is not set up, with connecting two PNRs. The old BA system was very robust and had no problem! Ask any BA ticketing expert and you hear the same story….

    My demand from an airline is a comfortable Business/Club Class seat, with acceptable legroom. The prospect of BAs first new Neo A321, being delivered this week, with the 28” Club Europe seat pitch, at a very high cost, fills me and many others with HORROR……!!
