    @tom That’s true. But there is one still on the loose, so it is generating at least 5000 Avios until it is caught. If you are suggesting a value on each cockroach then it would be a ruse to “bring your own”!! 😉 and NO I didn’t…..

    ……it was probably safer with them both out of the flight deck!!

    @Gold2A….surely bedbugs can’t qualify as frequent flyers….more like “Frequent Crawlers” 🙂

    Woke up in Club a month ago on a BA 777 “MC” seat 5A CPT-LGW to watch two cockroaches appear from the IFE handset holder. The female crew nearby refused to come and look but called a steward who caught one of them for investigation. 10,000 Avios as a sorry. Bedbugs, cockroaches, mozzies….On the approach I reminded the CSM that they hadn’t done the cabin spray out of CPT….panic set in and it was duly done.
    So, there is probably a lonely cockroach still wandering around MC…..so sad!

    Obviously, from the press, bed-bugs are allowed to board first so that they are settled and comfortable awaiting their meal!!!

    Group 1 goes from First Class Premier to the lowest Gold in economy…hey some priority system! Bun fight at the gate. The only ones that are happy are Economy Nothings who know their place…unless they have slipped through with Group 1 unnoticed! Oh BA…..

    The lalest missive this morning from BA is regarding the 2500 Tier point upgrade voucher, informing how things are “so much better after listening to the customers”. It fails to mention that you can still only use the voucher to upgrade a cabin if there is an Avios seat available in that cabin…fine on a LHR-MAN, but try a popular long-haul route!!
    I have written several times to BA saying that this incentive to get to 2500 Tier Points is a total waste of time…are they really “listening to the customer”?

    Snr Cruz punctuation is odd…what does “three-big short-haul carriers” in the third para mean??! I was taught at Brockham Primary School to read what I had written, at the age of 8!

    FDOS, I hope you have sent your comments to Cruz directly! Great fun….thanks for the morning giggle.

    @Cheeryguy…. how can it stay at 30″? The Club Europe ‘cabin’ is a variable and can be as little as three rows but can be as much as 20rows on an A321. You are suggesting that if the CE pitch is to stay at the measly 30″ then the rear rows will be even less than 28″ when Operation Squeeze starts.
    A contact has confirmed that on fitting the extra two rows the pitch will be reduced from row 1 to the rear row…approx 28″, except for the em exit rows. The new Neos will be delivered with this config and one less toilet.

    At a time when BA are starting Operation Squeeze by reducing legroom on their short haul fleets in the Club Europe cabin to 28” seat pitch, I have just had an email from Wizz regarding their new Premium service…with an increase to 32” to 36” of legroom! Sounds good to me.

    Nothing new as BA have been offering long-haul ex-US Club/Y HBO fares for years. As witnessed by the constant stream of massive amounts of hand-baggage….suitcase size…on these flights!!
