Re: British Airways tilts against reclining seats

Not many people on this thread have picked up on the fact that BA are also adding more rows & seats to each A319/320/321. BA call it "Densification" program.... More and More seats....less and less space. The densification of 2014 has already made a mess of aircraft. On full flights o...

Re: BA applies to use Qatari aircraft to cover strike

The aircraft swap has caused a bit of a problem for Club pax since the QR A320s only have 12 business class seats (3 rows) whilst the BA A320 often have more. I've been on one such flight from NCE & ended up being seated in an emergency exit that was completely blocked off for me, plus unlimited...

Re: Sunday Times Article: ‘Anyone but British Airways’: turbulent times at the nation’s flag carrier

The Sunday Times article is spot on. And if you think BA's in trouble only at the front of the aircraft, look at the back too. Their economy product, especially in short haul, is below Easyjet both on seat pitch, food to purchase, and how to purchase it - they only accept payment by credit card &...

Re: Boeing officially launches 737 MAX 10

Re: EK To Deploy A380 To NCE

But nothing I'm aware of regarding T1 which is becoming totally inadequate given the traffic growth. They are well aware of the problem. T1 has completed a major ...

It's about time because T1 gets really overcrowded in the summer. In the past months, there's also been a lot of work around that gate (Gate 54) i...
