Yep. Seems that it’s tricky securing the outbound flight. Inbound a lot easier to find on the BA site.
'business' flights for Europe make sense if you need to take lots of luggage, but don't expect to have entertainment screens or anything

Plus lounge, slightly more legroom, free drinks whole journey etc.
BA needs to be split again I think. Just like it used to be. BEA and BOAC. With so many budget airlines on short haul it's next to impossible to offer great service BA once used to provide back in the days and make decent profit.
Where did that leave long haul?
Well they are 4 star airline and there's no way they will complete with 5.
Its a big challenge to find the right balance of offering cheap fairs on short haul yet keeping your long haul premium as one airline. You guys probably know most of these top airlines like (Emirates/ Etihad or Singapore) either don't operate any or very little short haul flights and that means they can focus on one thing. Premium long haul.
New seats on BA flights are getting some good reviews and will be slowly rolled on to most aircraft at some point in near future.
And of course aging 747s will be gone by 2023 hopefully.
Awful airline, ageing planes with overpaid legacy staff and poor service.

Sadly the days of slightly more legroom are gone. Front 10 rows used to have 33/34" but now BA makes everyone suffer with around 31".

At least the tray table with champagne is closer to your lips 😁

Overpaid legacy staff?
Don't think strikes would have been on table if they were already overpaid.
Check in staff's starting salary is around 20k and ground staff around 19k plus shift allowances.
If that's what you call overpaid then hurray, we are rich nation.

Strikes were pilots who were offered 11% rise over 3 yrs, all but one union thought this was a very fair offer. Ur argument doesn't stack up, I mentioned overpaid legacy staff (eg long serving cabin crew on £50k+ and pilots on £200k+). New starters only get paid a fraction of that, yet do the same job as other legacy staff earning 3-4 times as much. Hence why they're miserable, reflected in the poor service.

Strikes were planned for the rest of staff just before pilots but they ended up accepting the offer.
I never said they were perfect. They need a lot of bold decisions made soon before reputation is lost completely. However it's not as bad as some people make it out.
Some people even criticized self check ins. Would you rather pay for priority check in and wait in the queue still. I would much rather not see anyone's face and check in. All these massive terminal buildings and facilities come at a hefty cost which rivals don't offer. T5 was awarded the best terminal in the world by skytrax 6th time in 11 years of its history.
Just booked 1st class JFK to LHR for £760!
