The new HFP chat thread – Sunday 9th August

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

We have decided to run this new daily chat thread on Head for Points.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the de facto repository for random comments and questions.  It is unlikely that the news flow will be so big over the next few weeks that we will need many ‘Bits’ articles, however.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are stuck at home self-isolating, we want the HFP community to have a place to chat.

Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as its keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

By default, HFP shows the last page of comments under the article.  If you want to see the first page of comments and read them all from beginning to end in order, click here: https://www.headforpoints.com/2020/08/09/the-new-hfp-chat-thread-sunday-9th-august/comment-page-1.  The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.

Old chat threads are hidden from the HFP home page.  If you want to look for something in an old thread, click here.  This brings up all the articles in our ‘General’ category which includes the chat threads.

    BA lounge at Schipol still closed. No sign on the doors or anything. I went to Aspire on Priority Pass, but it closes at 6pm, food/bar service stops at 5:30pm. Mediocre offer in the lounge… Airport is very quiet!

      I was there last week, pulling on the doors because it looked open but scared I might set the alarm off!

    Amazing story.

    Did you get in?, Did you set the alarm off without getting in? Did you get in without setting the alarm off? or Did you give up? How scared were you on a scale of one to ten, one being moderately perturbed, and and ten being so scared that you messed your pants.
