British Airways Boeing 737-400

Thu Jan 01, 2004 1:53 am

Hi!

I will be flying up to MAN from LGW in march on a BA 734 and was wondering where the best place to sit is?

Are there any seats which I should stay away from?

Thanks very much,

AIRCRAFT88.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Seat 12A is a nice one, had that once when I flew on G-GBTA a few years back.

Aircraft88:

Use OLCI and try to grab either an exit row or bulkhead.

If your an Executive Club member, you may check in on-line within 24 hours of departure.

If your not an Executive Club member, you can still register as an on-line member and check in within 12 hours of departure.

Otherwise, it's up to the airport where you sit.

Brgds,
BAJax

I thought you had to be aged 18 years or above to register as a BA Executive Club member?

Flew on BA 734 to Venice from LGW earlier this year. I'm a registered online user with BA and as BAjax says you can check in twelve hours prior to departure, picking your seat from those available. Anything ahead of the overwing exits in EuroTraveller is good as BA can change its cabins from Club to Traveller with adjustable seating, so pitch is good to take account of this. Further back its less as the seating is only ever used for Traveller.

I also have registered with BA Online. Once you check in online, what do you have to do once your at the airport? Silly question i know Embarrassment....

Many thanks,

Once you get to the airport you just have to show your passport, pick up your boarding card and drop your luggage off. All at a separate desk at LGW when I flew, avoiding the single Traveller queue for all destinations that was snaking its way around the check-in zone.

You can either turn up at the airport a lot later or have more time to shop (Or get distracted in Waterstone's in my case!) before you fly.
