  1. It is possible that you hit the sweet spot price wise which is thought to be around 8 weeks out other than very busy periods. With dynamic pricing anything is possible but it is more likely that the price will rise as lower fare tickets are sold out. You might both be flying economy on the same aeroplane but that doesn't mean that your ticket is the same. There may be better conditions for changing the more expensive one. Probably more chance of an upgrade but even £622 is no where near a full price economy ticket and those people will be ahead in the queue.
  2. White horse walks into vary Bartender "we have a whisky named after you.." White horse."I'll have a double Dobbin then."
  3. You explain it better than me but I'm just repeating what BA customers and staff say on websites like flyertalk and pprune. Maybe the timings of the BKK flight gives two nights out? Or actually on checking KUL and HGK return flights are late in the evening where as BKK is lunch time so much more likely for the hangover to still be around.
  4. I'm pretty sure that latest BA carry on luggage allowance says duty free etc must fit in your carry on. I had a particularly officious gate agent make me repack boarding a BA flight from Amsterdam even though I was in business class. This is pretty rare though.
  5. From BA's website... If you are travelling on a hand baggage only (Basic) fare, checking in baggage costs extra. However, if you’re travelling with an infant or a child up to 11 years old, you can check two items, such as a fully collapsible pushchair (stroller), a car seat or a travel cot for free for each infant or child. You can pay and check in bags at any time before you fly, but you’ll get the best rate if you pay online in advance. https://www.britishairways.com/en-gb/information/baggage-essentials/checked-baggage-allowances
  6. As far as I'm aware LHR-BKK is mixed fleet staff who are on newer, worse, contracts as opposed to the LHR/HGK route where the staff are happier workers. The Bangkok flight also gives the staff a night out in Bangkok and so is known as the party plane with many FAs suffering from hangovers on the way back to London.
  7. BA cabin luggage is one carry on at the largest size, 56x45x25cm, which can be up to 23kg heavy but the basic premise is you must be able to lift it into over head lockers. Plus one small laptop bag type thing that must go under the seat in front of you. They are well known for enforced gate checking of cabin luggage.
  8. Don't think there's been any change on the domestic flights. If you are connecting from international flights and leave your old luggage labels on they are quite relaxed if you are a few kilo over.
  9. Don't you worry these super hot young Ruskies are not thinking "some of these young western guys are so hot but the older ones, there's not enough rohypnol."
  10. It isn't over over though. There will be another season of it.
  11. They are extremely similar hotels with a swimming pool in the same place. Wouldn't be surprised if the same architect was involved or someone stole the plans from whichever was built first. Might be four or five years since I stayed in either but thought at the time that J&P was slightly better maintained. As for noise I can't remember suffering at either place but as said a lot depends on the current people staying.
  12. Place next door J&P Court is very similar but slightly better in my opinion. Unfortunately doesn't have much of an internet presence so not as easy to book.
  13. Hi Cunt, probably Indians without the pole and whose bread would be tear shaped or round and flat rather than come in loaves.
  14. Was in there Sunday lunch time. Took a little while for my table to be approached by a member of staff who picked one thing up and shouted at another to clean the table. Two visits later and it is sparkling but that's three times staff have been and I don't have a menu nor has anyone asked me if I need a drink. So I walk out.
  15. Rightful place? Where on earth do you get that from.
