It's quite easy to look back on aviation in the 50's through to the 80's through rose-tinted spectacles so it's important to remember that those years weren't really the halcyon days that they can sometimes be made out to be.
British Airways has only just come off a very good winter sale and now it's launching a luxury holiday sale which runs through to Monday 18 February. Long-haul and short-haul destinations are all included and, in some cases, the flash sale makes it cheaper to book a flight with accommodation that the flight alone.
Virgin Atlantic and British Airways are both currently offering very good Business Class deals for travel between Brussels and Shanghai for travel though to the end of the current booking period.
British Airways has just launched a new section to its website which has been designed to assist passengers at times when things don't quite go to plan. According to the airline, BA.com/helpme has been introduced to help customers change bookings and find out what their consumer rights are during times of delays and cancellations.
During the week of 21 January BA was offering £200 roundtrip long-haul fares to select destinations (2 destinations per day for 4 days), on 1 February the airline revealed its latest promotional video (in the form of a love letter to Britain) and now, for a limited time, British Airways is offering £100 off select long-haul fares for 5,000 Avios.
British Airways is currently offering a very good Business Class fare for travel between Amsterdam Schiphol and Bangkok. Availability looks very good and it's easy to avoid long layovers so this should offer a nice opportunity to rack up some BA Tier Points or credits towards American Airlines status and you should be able to rack up quite a few Avios/redeemable miles too.
I've only recently moved over to the British Airways Executive Club from American Airlines but I've been flying one or two British Airways short-haul routes for more years that I care to remember and, on one of these routes, I've just realised that passengers may be at a greater risk of finding themselves stranded overnight than they realise.
Back in October 2018 British Airways announced that it would be investing $65million to enhance the passenger experience in JFK Terminal 7 and today, less that 3 months after making that announcement, British Airways has confirmed that it will be moving its operations to JFK Terminal 8 in 2022.
This is more of a note rather than a full-on blog article just to warn flyers that British Airways has changed the baggage allowance afforded to travelers flying in Economy Class to/from Brazil.
You may have noticed a number of 6 second teaser videos that British Airways has been posting on social media recently and you may have wondered what they were all about. Some seemed to think that BA was going to unveil its new Business Class seat today while others speculated that the airline was going to announce a new route, more new aircraft or even changes to the British Airways Executive Club (that was always a very, very long shot).
