How often do you come across these confused passengers that have decided not to sit in their assigned seat but rather something better?

Confused Business Class Passengers

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).

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.
