Today there was a thing with bikes all over BA offices/other locations - related to BA being the airline for 2012 etc.

It was basically "a simulator" where you had a bike training machine on which you could steer, pedal and switch gears with inputs being outputs in a video kind of game.

So anyway - anyone else do it today? There was someone at Heathrow that posted 2:23-2:24?

So - if you have any ideas what I'm on about, do reply!

(preferably leaving your time too! :P)

    Didn't think anyone actually "worked" for BA? :twisted:

    (Guess who is due to be going on holiday with them in April when their next strikes are planned)

    Damn, beaten to it.

    In my last four flights with BA I've:

    1) Had all my luggage lost twice.
    2) Been stranded in Lusaka for 3 days having to make a £50 taxi journey to the airport each morning to find out if the plane was even flying.
    3) Had to spend 11 hrs to Jo'Burg with no entertainment system
    4) Had to spend 10 hrs to Lusaka with no entertainment system
    5) Been shouted at by a steward for asking for a coffee whilst he was selling duty free
    6) Had my luggage damage twice
    7) Had to wait two hours for luggage in Terminal 5

    It's a terrible company and if I could avoid it I'd never fly with them again. Mrs A is responsible for booking around £250,000 worth of travel each year and wherever possible she won't touch them with a barge pole.

    Luck can only account for so much, after that you know there are systemic failures.

    We may only travel one up from cattle but Mrs A hangs with the chief ninjas.
