    Overall an underwhelming experience. Checked in online at T-24: managed to bag an emergency exit row seat. So far so good. Baggage drop also relatively smooth and headed airside at T5. 45 mins before flight we were all moved to the B gates (B45 I think it was) where we stood...and ...

    World Traveller Plus seat is a must for a long distance intercontinental flight, rather than the cramped World Traveller (Economic) class seat. Few degrees inclination and few more inches of seat width do really matter in making the long flight more bearable - with a reasonable fee addition. The ...

    LHR – SEA; YVR – LHR in Club World This was originally a WP+ ticket that was upgraded to CW, outbound by Avios, and return for what I assume was operational reasons. A note on upgrades. I had purchased tickets back in the summer, at which point there was no availability for the Avios ...

    Flew LHR to Las Vegas. As a BAEC silver member I used both the BA Galleries South Lounge and lounge at the B gates. The former was very busy but we managed to find seats easy enough. Hot food included a couple of curries, baked spuds and chilli. These we're being cleared away around 2pm but ...

    I flew into Bangkok from Yangon and spent a pleasent time in the BA Lounge. Its small but quiet and the service is all Thai smiles so a shower and a few snacks later, I headed to the Gate. Boarding was called for premium passengers but there were no checks so people boarded at will. I was among the ...

    British Airways operate up to three flights per day from London Heathrow to Toronto Pearson International Airport using a B747-400 and have just added the B787 to both of the other departures. Air Canada also has five daily flights between the two cities. This review is based on the last daily ...

    I flew down from Glasgow to join BA09 to Bangkok. Being a saturday and a late booking, I had to take a relatively early flight down south and so had an extended stay in the very quiet but also very pleasent First Lounge in T3 where I completed a couple of reports that urgently needed attention. ...

    Since I was going on a 9 hour+ flight, Phoenix to London, I decided to upgrade to Premium Economy. British Airways needs to retire these 747's or do some refurbishment if they intend to keep flying them. I had the most uncomfortable seat I have ever had on a plane. I had to fold 2 blankets and sit ...

    I had arrived in Singapore earlier that day for a couple of meetings and used the MRT from the city, collected my suitcase from Left Luggage and headed early to T1 where BA is located. There were no queues at check-in and my case was checked hrough to Glasgow and Priority-tagged. I went through ...

    I need help understanding the value proposition of my World Traveller Plus (WT+) flight from Toronto (YYZ) to London (LHR), on a Boeing 747 - which cost double what I would ordinarily pay to fly Air Canada (AC) in economy class on the same route, paying an additional fee for a seat with additional ...
