20 rotations. Basically 3 rotations every day apart from Saturday which was 2.
Many thanks.
Actually, I seem to recall that when the route first started, there were 4 flights per day on the A319 during the week. I think that lasted a year before dropping to 3 and then down to where we are now. I have just checked back in the BA thread and confirmed 4 per day from the start of the route.

that was the original plan when announced about 6 months before it started, but I don’t think it ever ran at that frequency.

Just flew back on an almost full BA1344 - a painfully long taxi at LHR, very quick flight to LBA followed by 15 minute wait for bags but to be fair a lot of pax had multiple cases and the worst bit was the taxi wait - told 10 minutes, over 20 as 'drivers were on their break' - moral of the story is prebook!

I have just come back from meeting a friend of mine who came up on your flight Yes slightly longer than normal taxi at LHR from what I saw when watching on FR24 so despite the early pushback it did seem to take longer than usual to get to takeoff. Anyway hope you had a good flight overall.

Yep friendly crew, sat in club and they dished out an afternoon tea and drinks in that short space of time - hope your friend did too! The captain did say it was an unusually long taxi caused by congestion! I was glad to see how busy the flight was.

Great to hear. Yes, he was telling me he enjoyed the afternoon tea too.

And I agree...my last 2 experiences with BA were very so so...food crap as it has been for a long time now.
My wife's seat back from Tampa was broken and did not recline...not good on an overnight flight.

Good to see that Singapore still rated so high, with Cathy my carrier of first choice flying East even in the 80's, my view BA dreadful then in comparison. Nothing in 40 years has changed, other then for me BA, does now, compare badly with Jet2 etc. on short haul.
Need Jet2 to reward frequent passengers as they used to do years ago.
Even the ability to use my BA points wont attract me to fly with them, unless no obvious choice.

Our reward for the wife’s knackered seat was 40,000 Avios points....brilliant, but I won’t use BA again unless no other airline does the route I require.

They are good but not as good as Singapore...I have flown bus with Qatar and they are the best by a mile.

i would say you were pretty unlucky tbh. I can’t remember the last time I had a broken seat on BA - I am not even sure I have had one yet.

The QSuite is the game changer, truly a wonderful carrier...
