    I flew from SIN to LHR in Club World on BA12 in an A380. This was the fifth flight in an ex-OSL trip to Australia (OSL-LHR-HKG-SYD-SIN-LHR-OSL), which I’d booked for about NOK26,700 (which worked out at the time of booking as just over £2,100). Having deplaned from our arriving flight ...

    I arrived at LHR about 2 hours before my flight and made use of the new Fast Track security lane in the North of the terminal which is a big improvement on the previous arrangement. I preceded to the North Lounge for some breakfast (nice selection of bacon rolls and pastries) and being a Saturday ...

    With hesitation I booked B.A Business Class as I'd read bad reviews on seats, service & food. So I was very pleasantly surprised to receive excellent service and very good quality food. The seats are another matter. Best description is felling like a rat in a small cage. Narrow seats, ...

    I flew from LAX to LHR on BA 268 in Club World on the Airbus 380. This was the penultimate leg of a DUB-LGW-MCO-LAX-LHR-DUB booking made in the ex-DUB sale in November 2014. I got to LAX at 6.30pm and easily found the BA check-in desks. There was no queue at the CW check-in desk and I got a ...

    We had 53 A/B and 53 J/K, the service was good, seat comfortable. The overhead locker space as a bit tight, but the compartment by 53 A/K did help somewhat, however, don't put your drink on the lid, as it is very sensitive, and popped out a couple of times spilling the glass of water. The IFE is ...

    Obtaining the seats was a problem in itself. Although I tried to obtain the seats at the premium price several days in advance, the purchase did not go through. I realized it the next day and spent an hour on the phone with BA. The net result was changing flights to have an aisle seat for my ...

    A380 trip back from Johannesburg - perfectly acceptable journey. Checked in online at T-24 and managed to bag one of the last aisle seats left. Arrived via the Gautrain and very efficient check in and security/immigration. However I gave up at the VAT reclaim where the queues were long and the ...

    The flight was delayed a bit and fortunately I found out before leaving home so delayed my taxi by 30 minutes. I briefly went in the lounge and whilst I did not eat it looked like the service had improved. Despite the flight being delayed (I checked with staff) the display signs were saying go ...

    I was a bit upset as my 12yr old daughter and I were seated separately and unable to be moved, but that was no one's fault as there was a full flight with a maximum 97 passengers in Club/Business Class! It is a 2:4:2 configuration, which is much more seats than other airlines. Most have a 2:2:2 ...
