We're flying with BA this time.
I know a lot of people here who have flown with FC and were very happy. Me personally, wouldn't fly with them.

we are flying with ba in less than 24 hours. Always been happy with the service. plus if you are staying in a disney resort you only get Magical express from Orlando they do not offer it from sanford.

We have never flown with BA but have flown with FC a couple of times although a couple of years ago. My only complaint is the luggage allowance even if you upgrade to premium, apart from that we found them to be more than adequate for the price.

We have since flown with Virgin PE just for the extra luggage allowance, however due to the changes we are now back with FC/Thomson for our November hols.

I can see with BA you get 31" "seating"

Do you know what you get if you upgrade (cannot find it on website - sorry), and what other "perks" you get
