Does BA re-boot its planes?

Grrr… is it just me? Or have you people also been sat at 34,000 feet enjoying your ‘Worcester Sauce’ flavour pretzel bites and G&Ts while tuning into the new BA video on-demand service only to be told that the system needs to be re-booted so that little Jimmy in seat 67F can watch Finding Nemo properly?

Grrr… is it just me? Or have you people also been sat at 34,000 feet enjoying your ‘Worcester Sauce’ flavour pretzel bites and G&Ts while tuning into the new BA video on-demand service only to be told that the system needs to be re-booted so that little Jimmy in seat 67F can watch Finding Nemo properly?

“It should only take about 20 minutes,” said the Cabin Service Director.

Do you really think they should have rolled it out with so many potential flaws?

… and another thing, BA Highlife magazine this month says the Top Gear Polar Challenge is installed – and it’s not. Integration please BA.

… and while I’m ranting, if a “random” computer service is used to select passengers for the BA on-board questionnaire, is that a good thing? I’ve done about twenty in the last year or two. They must know by now that I think their bacon sandwiches in the lounge are superb and the toilets are a bit messy.

Sorry – I like BA, they fly nice safe planes and are all nice people. Never write a blog with jet lag like I just did.
