    BA would have been silly to not delay the new baggage rules, while the current restrictions on carry on remain in place. Speaking of which, I hope there will be some relaxation soon.

    I am hoping likewise. Currently debating whether to route through LHR for possible F upgrade and extra EQP, or to go direct to FRA for the convenience of avoiding LHR and being able to take my usual wheelie briefcase (its 47cm x 35cm x 22cm so does not fit into the BAA limit of 45x35x16).
