I just went thru the booking process. It appears to be working fine.

I'll just keep on trying to book my seat tonight I guess,

.

Just makes you realise even more how good Emirates are, you buy your ticket & then book your seat straight away for free.

After eventually being told a couple of times I couldn't check-in on-line for this flight, & then being told their website wasn't responding as its too busy, I've now got to the seat selection screen a couple of times now & at last its saved my seat selection.

1 hour 30 minutes to simply book a seat on-line. Can't say I'm impressed at all.

Hopefully I might get a meal tomorrow on the flight home. On the way here, they ran out of food, and could only offer passengers vegetarian pasta as a meal !!

That's what happens if you book late...possibly catering for the bare minimum

A useful tip to see if any website is down - or if it's your PC - is (in windows) to just click the start icon and then in the box that appears type:

ping www.ba.com or any website

If you get "reply from" then the site is up. If not, it's down.

That won't stop the fairly frequent "Our sysyems are not responding" message I seem to get on ba.com ..... but may help

Seems to be up and running again now.

As my flight was booked 4 months in advance, don't think it had anything to do with the food runnung out, I was just unfortunate to be sat in between the two trolleys working from the end of the plane to the middle.
