Today’s Airfare of the Day goes to British Airways and their business class excursion non-refundable round trip fares between London and Helsinki. This fare accrues 160 TPs on BA Executive Club (£1.22/TP!!!)
The beauty of the short-haul business class on most European airlines from their perspective is the fact that it is an economy seating with middle seat blocked and some food and beverages served.
Airlines can adjust the number of business class seats based on how well or not they are selling and move the curtain. But is there a limit on how many rows of business you can have and serve on narrow-body flights and with the limited number of flight attendants?
Reader Question: British Airways Executive Club Earnings Error For Japan Airlines HEL-NRT Route, BA Doesn’t Care
Today we have a Reader Question about an obvious error in British Airways Executive Club earning structure for Japan Airlines on the Helsinki-Narita Route in Business Class.
British Airways has published a list of twenty new years resolution for the year 2020 that promise some significant improvements including an urgently needed renovation or at least refresh of their lounges.
How often do you come across these confused passengers that have decided not to sit in their assigned seat but rather something better?
I come across them several times a year and, most recently, on a British Airways flight from Dubai to London. As I was the last passenger to board the plane, I had a look at the cabin and saw this gentleman in my seat.
British Airways has been slowly rolling out the internet capability to its aircraft, something other airlines have had since the early 2000’s (Connexxion by Boeing back then).
What surprises me is that the airline doesn’t advertise or communicate that this service is complimentary for those in the first-class cabin. You only see the message when you open the service in your device.
British Airways has launched a new Avios sale for Executive Club members at 30% bonus that is valid through January 30, 2020.

Which? today released their annual airline survey. British Airways and Vueling, both owned by IAG, were third and second-worst airlines flying to/from the UK. Only the Ryanair was ranked lower.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone considering how even the LCC’s provide better overall experience considering the price paid than the former flag carrier of the UK.

British Airways has instituted an annoying boarding procedure in some markets that I call a scam.
Even when the plane is not ready for boarding, the boarding starts, and the gate agents pack the jetway full and make you wait umpteenth minutes until you can enter the aircraft.
