Re: BA to introduce new boarding policy, cheapest last.

Hang on... so if I buy a business ticket, I now have no choice but the get on the plane first?? Erm... no. If you've paid a premium you should be able to choose exactly when you get on the plane during the boarding process.

Re: busiest pair of city served today

London-DUB has to be right up there seeing as you can fly to DUB from any airport in the London system (LHR, LGW, STN, LTN, LCY). It is a route that is right up there in terms of pax numbers for many airports, particularly STN.
