OK, they have changed their baggage FAQs page AGAIN. As of early Febuary, they had one nearly the same as the current page, but saying an extra bag MIGHT be allowed in the cabin, but might also have to go in the hold if they didnt have enough space, that luggage in the hold would cost £xx (I forget how much), and that you wouldnt know until you got to the gate which was going to happen. We sent our luggage with the grandparent's who were driving over to Spain. TBH, I feel sad you have to defend such a crappy airline.

Master.G

You really don't have a clue do you? You are entitled to 2 bags in the base price. One you can take into the cabin, the other goes into the hold. You are then entirely free to choose or not to add on extras such as choice of seat, priority boarding (which lets you take the second bag into the cabin), extra bags in the hold, insurance etc. If you just want to get from A to B with 2 bags, the advertised price is all you need to pay.

Gentle_Giant

You have just contradicted yourself. RA's website doesnt help; in one place it says you can carry an extra bag that may, or may not need to go in the hold; on another page it says you have to pay to carry an extra bag. I only flew RA, because that is what was booked for us; my own searches in the past have always found the final RA price to be more than flying a premium airline like KLM or Lufthansa (or Air France - but they keep losing my luggage, so I dont fly them any longer). Either way, I was more impressed with Jet2, for all the talk of the seats being smaller, I (all 2 metres and 150KG of me), found them to be more comfortable AND to have more space, than the RA seats. What they have taken away in pitch, they have more than gained in the reduction of seat padding - and by some miracle, made the seat more comfortable to sit in.

plane_boy2000

No, 2nd bag is included for free, you only pay if you want to take it on board. We flew last month and to be honest it was much better without the scrum to find space for your bags

Gentle_Giant

You only get the 2nd bag if you stump up extra money; they may also (at their discretion) chuck it in the hold.

Flights a few weeks ago were £1800 for 4 of us, today without the discount £2650. Paid the £1800 last year a month before flying seems one if their non offers wait for the normal sales. You also can’t use the code with avios which for a family can be a better way of using miles as you have no chance of getting a reward seat for 4 of you.

That is the all business A318 - BA1. I doubt it is that important to them really. It is a once a day service now LCY - JFK. I would like to do it someday but currently saving Avios for a 2 for 1 F redemption for LHR to JFK. Never done BA first so looking forward to it. People love a good moan about BA but personally I have always been happy with their service. As for the Emirates comparisons - go and fly a 777 with 10 abreast and then tell me how wonderful they are........

Hi. Fair challenge, but horses for courses, no? If you are able and prepared to drop £3k on a credit card and then bank 25k avios for a future flight, do so. If you simply want £50 off a £200 flight *right now* take the offer, pay the first statement and then cancel it. Or do both!

yehehehes

oops , yeah I did mean the cashback card (didn't realise they introduced a fee on this one) not the £450 one. The Gold probably offers the most versatility for redeeming through the MR programme (could get 20k Avios if the rate is still 1:1).

ma6jrp

Platinum charge card has a £450 fee, but is refunded pro rata. Platinum cashback is £25 or free depending on the version. SPG also worth a look.

yehehehes

From the OPs post it appears you can get this on the classic card. You can't get a 25k Avios bonus on this classic card. You're talking about the premium card which carries a hefty annual fee. Also, some might prefer instant cash over Avios. If you are looking for a high bonus card then their Gold, Platinum (both charge not credit cards) and Nectar credit cards are worth considering. None carry a fee in the first year.

I agree. Tourists should always get ripped off and scammed, everywhere in the world. I also think we're dipping into racism, discrimination, homophobia, xenophobia with people on here who are against criminal activity.

Seconded. Taiwan ftw

Akiki

Taiwan is a good option if you would like to experience the authentic Chinese culture, with plenty activities to offer e.g. hot springs, forest parks, beaches etc. Visa free for UK nationals, nice food & much nicer people. Mega cities in China are rather soulless and will guarantee to stress you out big time.

I just cannot understand why so many people in England think, that what happens there happens EVERYWHERE in the UK. See it time and time again... Not just here, but every forum I've ever used. Please, open your blinkered eyes, and realise that there are other countries in the UK, and that just because something is the way it is in YOUR country, England, doesn't make it applicable UK wide. Like school holidays... And so many wonder WHY the rest of the UKs countries, get so frustrated with England... this is just one thing on a never ending list it seems. The UK isn't just England. Voted hot. Good for those near London. However, stating that it's London only in the OP would be beneficial.

omendata

True BA is a good airline. The problem is Britain has become a land of cheapskates and people who wnat something for nowt without putting in the hard graft, efffort - call it what you will. My friends in europe laugh at Brits sadly They say that all Brits need is:- Their Beer Their Fags And Football How embarrassing as are their antics on the cheap Ryanair flights!

Alan12112

uhploki

DON'T book a car with them through Avis - made that mistake in September and the CDW has an excess of up to and possibly more than the value of the car. So not really a CDW is it? Avis have gone the way of BA trying to screw you at every possible opportunity. I used to fly with them a lot but now after 2 flights a month return to LHR (urrrgh) I can never manage to break through to the Bronze level. So now saving my money and flying with a more honest airline.

you need to be more flexible in your choice of dates sounds like you are mixing a cheap new flight (new slot) with an expensive old one (old slot) which sort of demonstrates my point, ie choose the new slots

We are a family with 1 child, very soon to be 4. We leave ours at grandma's and stay at the Holiday Inn when visting. You can get 2 kids in most hotel rooms if they are in a cot still. Going forward I am saving Avios and then you can book hotels and you can book room type too. We had a nice big room at an Intercontinental all booked with Avios.

terencetcf

Will definitely consider it later. But now a family with 2 young children, I guess is impossible to get a room for 4 people, or 4 free drinks at check-in LOL! Thanks for your recommendation anyway :)

steveieboy1

Yes I do, IF you pay for a IHG hotel anyway at £99+ then there is no fee technically as you get a free night. Most people pick an IC hotel in London and get £250 value out of the free night. We would just be staying there because it's free (£99) so we spend it on a hotel we need during expensive time of year. Last year it was a Holiday Inn at £105. You get status with the card which gets you a pint and some nuts so that's £5 value every time you check in. We stay quite a lot of times a year at a Holiday Inn so make use of the free drink/s, sometimes you get 2 at check in. You are meant ot get other benefits like early and late check out but realistically you can just ask the hotel without status and normally get them. Also you are meant to get room upgrades but I haven't had any so far so don't count on it.

terencetcf

Are you using this as well? Perhaps is good for places that don’t accept Amex.... still not really a fans of pay card fees....

steveieboy1

How about an IHG card - £99 fee but you get a free night after a year if you spend 10k so book an expensive room to make the most of it. You get Platinum status so get a free drink at check in. Spend £37.5k and get spire status, no difference really but 25k points bonus.

You won't get a decent hotel in the idrive or tourist areas for much less than £50 per night. Our last visit was August, 22 nights with Virgin staying at the Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista - £2200 for 2A and 2C. We generally pay £1500 for 2 weeks, £2100 for 3.

What about Universal, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens....most people go to Florida to visit more than just Disney. If they're staying in a villa a car is probably needed but not for those on I-Drive . The hotel shuttles or Iride usually leave you right off at the gate at most parks. I've never had a problem with the Disney Transportation anytime I've visited.

Website is clumsy and very difficult to find a holiday for 5 for certain dates

Rudess

First of all, try checking through your phone a price of economy. Then ensure you use a browser on your laptop in which you never browsed the BA site (if you browsed the BA site, please clear all cookies and cache from browser). Then choose economy flight + car through the browser on laptop, and see if the combo gives you a cheaper price than the individual flight, plus see if it will give you by default a business flight which is cheaper (you can always change the flight in the package).

bibizizi

Mate it's a deals site not a talent show.

jrandrews72

Nope.. still can't get any deals.. Every option I try (with different browser) shows Business / club class about double that of Economy. Need more details on how/where this deal/glitch will work.

Rudess

When the economy costs £462 and you get a business and a car for £450, it's a deal. Like it or not, the purpose of publishing the deal is letting others to try and save money on their holidays, using the trick I just described, whether you book it a week or a year in advance.

Always fly to Tampa. Great airport. Very easy to get to Orlando.

Love Florida but careful driving out of Tampa at night. I've been probably 30 times and Tampa is the only place where I found trouble when I got a little lost. Get a sat nav and stay on main road and you'll be fine.

CKBhuna

It depends where your staying. If you're staying in the Davenport area then I've always found the drive from Tampa as easy (if not easier) than from Orlando International. Also, the airport at Tampa is much quieter than Orlando so you can usually get through security, etc quicker.

Dehero I was going to signpost HFP myself. 5years in and going strong!

dehero

Agree! First went first with Avios for our Honeymoon to NYC, bargain when combined with Amex companion voucher. I've since been a few times in F and have managed to not fly below CW since, that won't last forever though! If I keep flying for work the way I do though then my miles will keep racking up. Although only got 205k at the moment so not anywhere near what I had at maximum! And to reiterate, using them for WT redemptions are really bad value. Read the headforpoints.com website for tips on the best way to spend them. It will explain everything you need to know.

BIGEYE

Bad idea to fly BA in the first place.

Immoraliste

Don't trade them for Avios until you have a very clear plan about how you would use them (i.e Avios / cash cost of where you want to go; whether it is good value compared to a straight cash fare and using the Clubcard vouchers for other uses etc). Never use Avios on hotels and other services as the value per point offered is terrible.

Immoraliste

As Portillos states, if you're going to fly economy, then long-haul ex-DUB on Aer Lingus is just about the only way you'll get reasonable value for your Avios as you're not getting ripped off with BA level service charges and taxes. If you're looking short haul then Reward Flight Saver fares (i.e within Europe) still offer >1p/avios value, as well as short haul overseas routes with no or low taxes (e.g internal flights in US, Japan).

Probably gonna book this today/tomorrow before the offer ends. As mentioned above, Expedia require the full cost payable at booking, whereas BA can be secured with £300 deposit. Got it to an average of £2200 with selecting flights to Newark with decent enough times (we have to change at Heathrow each way), and adding in a return transfer service to/from the airport to Manhatten. Just got to decide on the hotel now, but looking like it will be the RIU Plaza or Intercontinental, both near Times Sq. Wife has been on for ages about going to NYC, and son is also excited at prospect of doing some shopping. I understand it will be cold in February, but it'll make a change to experience a bit of winter for once, as we dont really get them in the UK anymore!! EDIT: Well, thats it booked!!! (excited) Staying at the Intercontinental Times Sq, flying to/from JFK airport. Price cam in a shade over £2100 for the 3 of us, which isn't too bad. Missus is mega excited now (brownie points), and son is already planning which shops he wants to go to!! :D
