Bits: BA bacon roll news, 1200 Avios with My Little Pony, win a trip to LA with Hilton

News in brief:

Exciting British Airways bacon roll news

According to the latest newsletter sent to members of the British Airways ‘Future Lab’ survey panel, as a result of their feedback bacon rolls will soon be available in the Heathrow Galleries Club lounges until 11am.  The same goes for their vegetarian equivalent.

This is the most positive news to come out of British Airways for some time!

Slightly disturbingly, Future Lab reported that a “business case” had to be prepared in order to sanction an extra hour or so of bacon rolls, but luckily for us it was approved.

1,200 Avios with My Little Pony

The list of available boxes is here. The Shopper Points article covering the deal is here.

The Boss Baby Hilton win trip to LA

Win a trip to L.A. with Hilton and The Boss Baby

Hilton and DreamWorks are running a competition giving away a family trip to L.A.

All you need to do is sign up for Hilton Honors (although I assume most HFP readers are already members) and fill out a form on the Hilton / The Boss Baby website – click ‘Go back to see the boss’.

The trailer, also on the entry page, has echoes of a horror movie to me but it is apparently a fun family film if you are looking for somewhere to take the kids this Easter!

    I used the new “secret door” in the new First Wing yesterday. Wow. Discussed with a few friends and we were all impressed. We unanimously agreed this is the only positive development involving BA in the last decade – among a myriad of “negative enhancements”…

  2. OT – following on fromy’day article, when is the best time next year in 2018 to visit Japan for the cherry blossom season, would 15th-22nd APril 2018 be too late? Never been to Japan, so not sure how long to spend there?
    Was thinking of combining with PEK like Rob has, however, wasn’t sure if it was too cold in China that time of year?

      Not sure how long to spend there? Depends what kind of things you want to do, experience etc. Japan is a fantastic country. China (much) less so IMO after our 3 week holiday there last year.

      You’d catch Hanami on northern Honshu / Hokkaido.

        isn’t that possibly like saying go up to Edinburgh in May to catch the daffodils, primroses & tulips?

        • Genghis says:

          It’s one place I regret not going while in Japan. Wild bears, quality onsen and walking.

        • the real harry1 says:

          well I regret not going to Shetland, must be lovely there, but you only live once 🙂

        • James67 says:

          Masses of Dafs around Dawyck gardens last week, looked fabulous in the snow…I kid you not!

        • the real harry1 says:

          well I was just exaggerating to make my point 🙂

  3. O/T are there any virgin ISA deals going to be happening seeing as the new financial year is fast approaching?

    • James67 says:

      6000 to the end of April last time I checked. However, take care, last year it rose to 12000 a few months later so I’m holding back for a while.

    that Boss Baby bears an uncanny similarity to you, Raffles

    • Peter K says:

      Nah, Raffles looks younger. Must be all the sleep he gets in 5* hotels

      • That’s those cool new pix that Qatar Airways gave us for nothing from the photographer on their Business Travel Show stand this year (see ‘Contact Us’).
