  1. Brother worked for British Airways at the time and standby tickets for immediate family were normally around 90 pound return.

    Used them approx 50 times-only 2 occasions couldnt get the seat outbound after arriving Heathrow, but on Bangkok London leg got on every time.Helped when BA started code sharing with QF as you could use their motors as well.


    Its a standard concession in the industry.


    That concession now runs at £165 and it is very difficult for the actual staff member to get a seat nowadays let alone their family.

  2. Hi

    Just interested to know how you came to the conclusion that there are no airmiles on offer with the under £400 flight? I have just booked similar flights i.e special offer and they will have airmiles added after I travel! 1luv


    I didn't come to any conclusion, when I went through the booking process on Etihad.Com it said " miles reward with this flight 0"

  3. Once you have passed through Central Security Search you can now purchase fluids, both alcoholic and soft , which you can now take on to the aircraft, but, you cannot take fluids through Central Security Search apart from in containers no larger than 100ml and secured in a resealable clear plastic bag blah blah blah. Swampy finally caught upwith most other airports.

  4. Hi

    I arrived on 8th of May on BA9 wheels hit the tarmac at 15.14 , I was through Passport Control (nobody there when I got there and plenty of lanes open) collected my bag which I had to put through the x-ray machine at customs and was outside at 15.47.

  5. Agreed Tom.I believe IATA may have a say in their reluctance to perform this menial task.

    Unless BA is trying to save a few quid here and there.


    As my original post says this only applies to Domestic transfers, and I think IATA have bigger problems on their minds such as the state of the Industry.International transfers are not affected.

    Also can you please pinpoint the saving? BA still have to load the bag in London and pay to have it unloaded in Bangkok.

  6. Not sure about the other European carriers but BA have stopped "with immediate effect" transfering any bags onto domestic flights within Thailand, what this means is that if you are going to say Phuket or Samui and are flying from U.K. or Oz with BA you will have to go through immigration, pick up your bags then go upstairs and check in for your onward flight, no reason for the change seems to have been given.

  7. Just arrived home tonight,have to agree with Cheshire Tom the whloe trip DOH-BKK-DOH was on an older 340, also there were3 people on the LGW-DOH- BKK and 2 on BKK-DOH-LHR who all had printed confirmation of special meals, but none were onboard even though one guy checked in next to me and i heard them tell him that the meals were loaded onboard.

  8. Stayed there last weekend, hotel is great but make sure you confirm your booking, I recieved my confirmation e-mail and there is a line on there about cancellation time being 4pm. when I made my booking I told them I would arrive after 6pm.

    I actually arrived at 8 pm to be told my booking was cancelled as I had not called before 4, tried to explain that I was still on board an aircraft so cannot phone and also pointed out it was a confirmed booking, wasted my breath, thay said had no room, only suite which they would let me have for 1500, I was knackered so accepted this, "wait 20 minute while clean", one hour 10 minutes later I got the key, it is a great room but the staff on reception were really not helpful so I won't be going back.
