    Well if non status people stopped paying it still wouldn’t open up the seat map until OLCI.

    BA would still give priority to status passengers

    BTW as a corporate traveller it’s a policy I agree with. I did a last minute trip to Asia recently on a very expensive ticket and had to work hard to keep an eye out on seats so I didn’t end up in a “honeymoon” seat with a stranger whilst people that probably paid 20% of the fare my company did had good seats in the window.

    BA policy rewards status holders, expensive tickets or otherwise brings in a bit of cash whilst keeping more seating open for late bookers. They’re also reasonable about seating families together and so I think it’s one thing they do right

    Agree but what I don’t get is why IB can have free seat selection on J but BA want to milk the cow at every level.

    Different customer base, LHR is not the same as MAD.
