    Looking st NowTV Snatch faqs and it says you can only use one voucher of each type per NowTV account every 6 months - so why let you win more than one then? Not much of a prize if you cannot use it .

    All this BA stuff is rather annoying. We were delighted to be booked on BA when we booked the holiday, have to wonder now though. Can only hope that they learn a lesson from this. And yes, I know it is more than annoying for everyone that has been affected

    The worst thing is that the director said it was due to a power surge. You can protect against a power surge, it is so easy, just means spending out a bit more on some hardware.

    I have avoided BA wherever possible in recent years. They used to warrant their 'Britains favourite airline' slogan but have gone rapidly downhill . Their service is poor, food is diabolical and now you have to pay for snacks and drinks on shorthauls and they are thinking about extending that to longhaul. They are no longer anywhere near the best airline and are bleeding goodwill.

    a date for the diaries - Marks are going to have one of their, usually disappointing Sparks events - assume the date is the same for everyone? Anyway stand by your letter boxes in readiness for your invites - often there are discount codes for the same weekend or a voucher for a free £5 off something or other and 20% friends and family discount vouchers as well so read your junk mail before you hurl it into the recycling.

    3pm – 6.30pm

    I've just been to collect my top from marks (and yes I was there yesterday and it completely went out of my head) - we have £5 off shirts and tops this week as the offer on sparks. Its the blue spotty sleeveless on which I paid for with the £5 off and an e gift card via Quidco (with an extra 6% when you withdraw using a marks e voucher)
    Its actually rather nice and I might even keep it

    Well they are on board separate seats but only 2 hr flight. Totally agree with you 3 dogs. BA is not the airline it once was. DD said she felt sorry for the front line staff too - the abuse that they were getting. Remember what it was like in my day but at least we could organise food,drinks and hotels and we had enough staff to help.

    Well managing to get my weeding done - like you doing it in 15 mins chunks.

    OK, what are kets?

    JTS, hope you get it sorted. Maybe you should guilt trip them and tell them just howanted special this holiday is

    Ket = sweets.
    Im a board guide on Pie Making Moneysaving. I'm a volunteer to help the pie production & consumption run smoothly. I can help merge tastes and fillings. Any pies made are mine & are not those of other Moneysavingexperts. Im a board guide not a qualified baker and as such do not make every type of pie. If you spot a quiche or flan please report it.

    What a palava

    They have refunded my £140 for selecting our own flight seats.
    Someone is going to phone me tomorrow or Wednesday
    Have been assured there ARE more than 3 seats available - even though their system shows otherwise (face palm)
    Don't let someone dim your light - simply because it is shining in their eyes.
