British Airways – Downgrade


I used to fly British Airways a lot a few years ago, but ever since they had their first set of protests back around 2006 things haven’t been going so well for them. British Airways used to be my most preferred airlines to travel on, there is something that I like about them and I always enjoyed walking around Heathrow Terminal 4, maybe it was the bookstore, or HMV, or WH Smith which kept me so entertained over the past years of going through it. I got this downgrade from British Airways from a Gold Member to a Silver, and now from Silver to Blue and I’m not really annoyed with them as much as I am saddened by the state it has reached. Its not what it used to be, and I loved their lounges and I still like their style. Especially recently I remember they have had some insane price increases which has led me to try other airlines such as Lufthansa and Emirates, and I have had some good experiences. Still I don’t feel that I am losing much from the downgrade as I never really felt any benefit from their Mileage program.

    I hate Terminal 5, only reason I would ever take BA is if I wanted a short journey to London

  2. I’m sorry to hear that. ;/

    I know what you mean. I used to love strolling through Terminal 4 as well, and kill some before I had to board the plane.

    It sure is sad to see how things just keeping going downhill for BA. Hope they’ll be able to work it out soon.

  3. Hard luck buddy, too bad you couldn’t use them for the gulfrun trip ;p

  4. What I like about Terminal 5 is the fact that you don’t feel like you are ever in a hurry. But regarding the British Airways Club membership, I have been a member for a few years now and I still haven’t received my actual card lol

    Terrible follow up!

    How come their economy tickets to Kuwait are fixed above 600 pounds, and to anywhere else in the gulf is above 300?

    and how do you get to terminal 4? I thought flights from and to kuwait are terminal five… hmmm…
