    Hey Somchai – What date is your singapore flight booked for?

    I’ve got mine booked with BA from LHR on 18th Jan but worried they’ll cancel it as the Economy cabin is only 30% full (and I’m presuming most ppl in Bus/First have booked with miles)

    HI, I am travelling JFK-LHR-MAD. But my connection is after 24 hours in LHR and I see from the gov.uk website that I will need to fill in the PLF. I cant find the £1 tests anymore that will provide me with a code to fill in the PLF. Anyone have purchased a £1 test recently?. They are no more available on the gov uk website

    Don’t ever look at a seat map to try and guess how busy a flights is.

    Not everyone – even if they don’t have to pay – books a seat they minute they have booked a flight and given most people will have to pay they’ll wait until OLCI opens to get their seats for free,

    And you’re also be very much mistaken if you think most of the premium cabin seats are offered as redemption tickets.

    How many winners were there in total?

    supergraeme

    Carlos – up to 3000 winning a minimum of 60k Avios each. Could be more than 60k if fewer than 3000 than entered, but I’d be very surprised if that was the case.

    Apart from when UK had a pretty much total ban on entry Singapore has operated throughout the pandemic at the current reduced frequency, it carries a lot of cargo. So very unlikely to be cancelled

    It seems to depend on which network you are on. It’s always been sent back to my phone bill until recently when I changed to Virgin mobile. Only option then is to a registered bank card. Interestingly not all cards work! Hope that helps.
