I've been around Flyertalk for a long time, and every forum has its own flavour. But the two British forums (BA, and to a lesser degree, bmi) had a group of regulars and a very distinct culture that made them particularly fun places to be. In fact, although my flying spans a lot of different airlines in both OW and *A, I find that BA & BD are where I spend a vast majority of my time. It's not that I have many questions about the programmes -- I've been in both of them long enough to know the system pretty much inside-out. No, it's the blend of humour, teasing, long-running jokes, and cast of regular characters that make it the place it is. It simply won't be the same place without the threat of a hairbrush, or for those who've been around a little longer, FISH! I wonder if we'll see some old (ahem) familiar faces over here. And I wonder if the moderators will let us keep this place with the same friendly banter and occasional off-topic post that made the BA forum on FT so much fun. I hope so, because it would be great to carve out our own little corner of MP.
