We are running this daily chat thread on Head for Points during the coronavirus outbreak.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the de facto repository for random comments and questions.  With the news flow being lighter, we are running fewer ‘Bits’ articles.

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 at home, 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 it keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

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.

    Off topic question. I’m visiting London for a match at Wembley on Saturday 26th. We are staying near Earl’s Court. I’d like to have some recommendations for places we can book for relaxing drinks and chat on Saturday afternoon. We also need to book somewhere on Saturday after the match. Location either earl’s court or Central London please. in the evening we are happy for lively bars. It will be 4 people Thanks

    What sort of compensation could we expect from a complaint to BA regarding our recent flight experience in J?

    Combination of:

    No lounge access
    Crew rudeness
    Broken J seat (full flight so no switch possible) meaning couldn’t lay flat for a red eye

    And the kicker: Meal request didn’t go through to crews system (despite me having the email showing we requested it well in advance) so was unable to eat the entire flight

    There were some other issues that my current jetlagged brain cannot remember

    This cost us a BA 241 voucher and a hefty amount of avios + taxes & fees (US flight) so I’m fuming that we couldve had a better experience in WTP or WT.
