Forums Frequent flyer programs British Airways Executive Club Amusing myself in the BA lounge

  • ClubSmed 204 posts

    As I am sitting in the BA lounge at Glasgow, I usually chuckle to myself when collecting my knife and fork as the container of knives has the word “knifes” written on it. It had been this way for a long time, but I notice today that they have now corrected this.
    Though disappointed by that, I noticed today that despite the rivalry between BA and Virgin, the wifi is provided by Virgin (media). So I still had something to smile about.

    So my question is, does anyone else find strange things to smile about when using the BA Lounges, or is it just me?

    Is this kind of amusement limited to BA lounges or does it extend to all public settings?

    This just shows a lack of cultural sensitivity.

    You are in Glasgow.

    Knifes is the third person singular of the verb “to knife”.

    You were probably too busy chuckling to notice a receptacle for used knives which has/had “knifed” written on it.

    The removal of these signs just shows the ongoing Londonisation of British Airways.

    Personally I avoid pleasuring myself in a BA lounge, I find it in poor taste.

    Perhaps time to avoid the Amuse bouche

    I too clicked on this expecting something far more transgressive than cutlery chuckling.

    One of our lovely canteen staff always asks “Fork ‘n knife?” (say it out loud) at payment.

    Then there’s the classic Glasgow office banter, smile whilst waving a mug at your boss. “You fuh coff eh?”

    Swap the signs between the knives and the forks.
