British Airways Club Europe (Business) Seat Pitch Reduced To 30 Inches?


There is an interesting piece on the BusinessTraveller (access here) that claims that British Airways is in the process of ditching 34 inch pitch in Club Europe to same as in Euro Traveller (30 inches).


This would match Lufthansa that has same pitch in business class as in economy. The middle seat would still be kept free in business class.

BA Flies Granny To Grenada Instead Of Granada


There have been occasional stories of someone flying to Auckland (New Zealand) instead of Oakland (California) due to airport name mismatch. I have never, however, seen anyone mistake Grenada for Granada or vice versa.

You can access this entire story on Daily Mail’s website here.


62-year old had been using his late husbands Avios trying to get to Granada and BA had booked her to Grenada. I still cannot understand, however, how someone can be so utterly unaware of number of miles and taxes/fees required to Grenada instead of Granada that they wouldn’t notice anything during the booking process.
