I am currently enjoying a break in west coast America and just wanted to write about the excellent service I received on my trip over. Admittedly a lot of spending on my credit card over the past year allowed me to save enough air miles for two round trip tickets in BA’s Club World. However seeing that BA has recently revised pricing, it is now not so ridiculous to consider upgrading on your next holiday.
I know that there are two very specific camps in the British psyche for BA, much like marmite, you either love it or hate it. I have always been from the former opinion, and have always tried to fly with them if I could. However if you fell out of love with BA a few years back I would urge you to consider them again, especially if you are able to sit further up the plane! Heathrow Terminal 5 is excellent, acting more like a resort than an airport, and the new business cabin is very cool. Actually it is so good that I think BA struggle to convince people to fly in FIRST where you get a smaller seat and screen.
I must look quite the newbie trying out every position the seat will go into and everything in the complimentary wash bag – but for a bit of geek that’s most of the fun. Anyway when a company gets as much bad publicity as BA I feel it is important to talk about the good as well as the bad and in the case of their business class cabin it is first class.
