Otherwise, Willy will cut Norwegian service level further, hard to imagine.
Just to answer this briefly, i've done 4 long haul legs on DY in premium over the last 6 weeks, for comparison to BA's WT+
Better seats on DY, more seat pitch and width
Food is a wash, i've had great food on both, bad on both, though DY seems to carry less of each choice so runs out by row 3 of one of the dishes
IFE, if you are in a newer aircraft BA wins, but only on choice, DY has a great IFE system, but they lack the number of choices
FF program, I have to give it to DY, if only because I hate having to pay a fuel surcharge on an award ticket and DY's FF program is, well interesting to say the least.
Crews, it's a wash again.
Network, depends where you live, for me DY actually has better coverage than BA, for most that probably isn't the case.
Cost's...I looked one month out, LAX - LHR/LGW in WT+ and Premium, DY came in at $1744, BA at $1761, I should note that one part of the DY ticket it their flexible fare, adds about $100 to the cost.
All in all, if WW cuts services, it will bring it in line with BA's WT+ service...As to the economy cabin, I cannot comment, I have not flown it.
Okay, the topic in hand, I can wrap my head around the reasons for this move by BA, however, I am having a heard time understanding where DY's LGW routes fit into this, I can see IAG dismantling those and using those slots (and some of the aircraft) for a BA expansion, the rest of the DY network gives IAG the European network it's been trying to build for how long ?
