As much as I enjoy your company, I'm bloody glad I'm not with you now. Tell them that if they don't let you out of the gate you'll take a dump right there.

I had no chance of getting an upgrade. They moved me to premium economy on the way out but as I don't collect BA miles it was never going to happen again.

Now, I would never fly economy on intra-mena flights! good luck weasel!

I guess it is beyond being a joke now. Have they offered you any refreshments, somewhere to freshen up etc?

They gave me a voucher for 5 pounds at starbucks. I had a sausage sandwich and a latte. Cost - exactly 5 quid!

The shitty thing is that I won't get home until about 2-3am and the birthday party is at 10am.
