    My wife and I decided that a year of travel splurging was the best way to celebrate our impending significant birthdays. First stop, New York using Avios and Amex Companion vouchers to travel F outbound J return on BA. Given the number of flights to NYC we had no problem finding availability on ...

    My first flight on a BA A380 being a Gold Guest List and lifetime gold member with a long history of flying BA and I was very disappointed. Having experience the 380 on QF, EK, SQ & LH I have to say I was expecting more from BA. This aircraft clearly poses a wonderful opportunity for airlines ...

    This is the return journey of our trip, I've already written up a review on the outbound journey. I would like to say that I am BA staff. I was however travelling on a commercial revenue ticket on this journey and not staff travel. Also I knew none of the crew in the First cabin. Check in: We ...

    London Heathrow - Hong Kong BA A380 First Class Background First I must point out that my experience of other airlines First Class is very limited. I've not flown in any of the top tier airlines First Class cabins - SIngapore, Cathay, Emirates et al so my review is not to offer any ...

    Overall a very solid recent experience on BA104 from Dubai to London Heathrow Terminal 5. The flight departed from Gate C9 at Terminal 1, which is a relatively long walk from the British Airways lounge. Ground staff at the gate were polite and welcoming. There was additional security at the ...

    The flight was delayed by 4+ hours owing to a small technical fault, compounded by a catering truck causing some additional damage, so we had an aircraft change. The information flow was now wonderful and we left the Concorde room too early, but there was a member of special services at the gate to ...

    1) Boarding: Reasonable walk to gate and then at the back of long queue. I’m ‘checked in’ again but given no priority, which annoys me. Standing aboard the sky-bridge, I see a sign for 1st class and branch off to the left. 2) Cabin Ambience: So, I already know this is an OLD First, but even ...

    I connected from T5 for this flight to Bangkok and, although running late, made it to Gate 32 in plenty of time, arriving at 21.30 for my 22.05 flight, being assured that my transfer baggage was en route from T5 and had already been checked at T3. Priority boarding swas me as on of the first ...

    New F is the upgrade that BA needed. I was growing increasingly frustrated by the old cabin and actually "downgraded" myself once to a Club seat as it was a far superior product. Excellent service as usual and glad to see they have finally sorted the Spa situation at T5 with bootable treatments as ...

    Check in at LHR Terminal 5 was efficient, yet smart looking check in area on the outside, hides a very ordinary check in desk behind it, which was quite scruffy. Unlike with some airports you could not proceed directly through to immigration and security check in, but had to exit to go through the ...
