BA are offering kids fly free deals at the moment. Worth looking at if you have kids. Or, suggest it to the folks if you are one.

What's everyone's view on Alex Cruz? I personally hope he is forced out of BA ops and back to Vueling/Level as I feel he has destroyed the morale of the airline with mixed fleet strikes and having to pay for food - something that may seem trivial but if I'm paying the premium to fly from LCY and fares that are still as much as they were two years ago from LHR, I expect a decent service. I have noted service and customer care levels plummet over the past 2 years of flying British Airways and morale amongst cabin staff seems low. I'm not impressed with him and hope he is forced to leave. Let's see what happens.

New safety demo. Glad the proper Flower Duet is back! Although I'll miss how cheesy the outgoing demo is...

Morning all,

I've been away for a while but thought I'd share my summer experience with BA when flying back from Santiago via Madrid. I decided to stop for a few days in Madrid to break up the journey on the way back during the middle of the Mixed Fleet strike. I was flying back on BA459 when I noticed my aircraft changed to a 757 - which I thought was strange as BA have no 757s in their fleet. Turned out I'd be flying on Titan Airways. When I checked in online, they upgraded me to Club Europe, too, with no warning.

I got to Barajas and there was an apology letter on the check in desks for customers on my flight - saying that it would be operated by Titan and that they'd have the same levels of standards etc. I pondered this in the Iberia lounge. When I boarded the 757, it was really beautiful inside. Legroom was stunning and the cabin staff bringing drinks before take off. I was speaking to the cabin staff who said the aircraft gets charted by people and the likes of the Queen had flown on it (G-POWH) and that it often goes to extremely remote places around the world. The service was far better than BA; all customers got food (albeit that it was limited as someone had a severe nut allergy) as they couldn't operate the M&S buy onboard programme. Obviously our drink selection in Club Europe was better (with alcohol!) than Euro Traveller.

I wasn't sure about flying with Titan when it first came up; but what an absolute treat it turned out to be.

Hello all,

In MEX right now with work having flown on yesterday's BA243. Firstly - it has changed to a 787-9 from my beloved 744. I do approve of the 787-9; but it is SO narrow if you get an exit row seat in World Traveller.

However, the safety video has now changed! Here is the new one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQ9Xpzi4qkU

I found it far funnier than last year's!
