Which airline will cop it in 2010?

If you were to suggest a Top 5 of airlines to get the TA "Never going to fly again" in 2010, who would be on the list?

I am going to go with:

1. RyanAir

2. BA

3. United

4. Qantas

5. Garuda

You have to pay to choose a seat now??

That is a LCC trick. If the full service carriers want to compete they should get the razor out to their expenses, leave the passengers alone, if we want to build a fare we choose LCC.

People choose the full service carriers for that exact reason all the bells and whistles for one price and a smile from the cabin crew. Nicest ones I've come across are Cathay, other carrier personnel should take a trip to see what full service really is

No you only pay if you want to prebook seat in advance, you can choose your seat at online check in or at check in desk. Perhaps there was a reason why this particular type of plane could not use the walk ways to embark and disembark but hardly an issue tor me. I'm not a regular B.A traveller but would always choose B.A. over any American carrier to cross the atlantic.

BA is by no means the only airline which uses buses to move pax to and from the terminal building and remote stands. I've had the same experience with Swiss, KLM and Icelandair; I think LH does it a fair amount too.

Flights to and from LHR delayed - again, far from a BA-only problem. Given that LHR operates at 98% capacity on most days of the year, any glitch in arrivals and departures has a substantial knock-on effect, and unless you're very au fait with ATC you can't say without evidence that there was a specific BA problem in situ that kept your flight in the stacks.

Here's the AVOD listings for this month:

britishairways.com/travel/…

As you can see, there are a few more options than the two films you mention. On the off chance you were on a 777 without AVOD - there are three or four in the fleet - then you still would have had a choice of six or seven films from which to choose.

Pax need not pay to choose seats with BA. One can wait until OLCI for a selection of seats.
