    BA 474 LHR - Barcelona You can only check in 2 hours before the flight and not before. This is a pain and the messgae delivered in true BA style, ie school teachers talking to school children. BA lounge is OK - but they only serve brekfast until midday, so no sandwiches or hot ...

    Swift check in - complimentary upgrade, have to love Gold Marco Polo. CX BKK air lounge, fine, comp wifi. Boarding on time - seat 18D, aisle seat, I prefer window, but was a good seat as is backs onto the serving section. So can recline the seat without worrying about the comfort of other ...

    CX251 - HK - LHR. Seat 32A. Regular seat - no bulkhead available. But the newer CX economy is fine now I am used to the non-reclining seats, I actually find them better. AVOD choice fine - veggie food was unimaginative as always...no updates there unfortunately! Check in at HK was super ...

    CX251: HK - LHR. 30k bulk head seat - well worth it, much more leg room - much more spacious for an economy flight and K seat is the window seat - which I prefer than the aisle. Major complaint - the flight was FREEZING - I had a coat and scarf on - and three blankets and I was still cold. The ...

    CX1724: KL- HK - pls note this is a code share with MAS, so if you take the earlier flight at 17.55 then its a CX craft not MAS. Check in at KL was fine, took the KL airport express which I recommend rather than taking a taxi. CX lounge in KL airport is pretty tired - definitely needs a refurb and ...

    PR312. MANILA - HK. Not the most enjoyable flight, but was exacerbated by the fact that I had missed my previous flight due to heavy traffic in Manila - and had been told by the check in assistant that if I had got there only 2 mins earlier then they would have let me on the plane... That obviously ...
