    I flew BA2583 from VCE to LGW on an Airbus 320 in Club Europe. This was the return leg of a flight booked using a part-payment of Avios so the cost was £89 plus 11,500 Avios rather than the £220 full price being charged. This is not a good use of Avios but I was in a situation where I had a ...

    I flew AA first from DFW to ATL, it was a through flight from LAX so there was no opportunity to pay to use the AA Admiral's Club lounge but I found DFW to have a wide choice of places to get food (including a fast-food court with McDonalds) and a TGI Fridays. There wasn't much in the way of shops ...

    I flew AA584 from SFO to LAX in economy on the cheapest available seat. The flight was overbooked and there were about 10 people on standby with another 5 listed for upgrade (although there was fat chance of that happening). I am not aware of anyone having been bumped off this flight (compared with ...

    I took an AA economy flight from LAX to SFO. I'd bought the cheapest economy ticket available via the AA site on the understanding that if the flight was oversold, then I'd be one of the first people bumped off. This is made very clear on the AA website when you book, but there were a couple of ...

    I flew LHR to LAX in Club World. Apologies for the length of this review, but I thought it might be useful for anyone who, like me, travels Club World for leisure and so may not be familiar with everything on offer. I'd printed out my boarding pass before arriving at the airport via the on-line ...
