My thoughts on BA1: excellent service, excellent product.
A full trip report will be coming soon.
Now, whilst the crew and product were excellent, I’m going to win no friends at all with parents (Sorry Mommypoints), but there were elements on the flight ruined due to hyperactive kids… And their parents not controlling them (for example, using the set as a climbing frame, bouncing up and down on the leg rest, shouting across seats… Whilst the parents don’t seem to know to how to say no to then.
Whilst I respect the right for people to bring children with them, it killed the relaxation part of the flight for me for which the parents had no control over the children.
So much so, I’m with Malaysian airlines sadly – ban them from the top classes of travel, or warn the passengers at least children are near by so an option to move seat is possible.
The one saving grace – BA’s noise reduction headphones work. That and I’m now fully familiar with a Symphonic Metal band.
More later – I’ve got an appointment at a Genius bar as I’ve got a sick Apple Mac 🙁
