When you get to the airport, traversing the carpark is a bit of a task (esp. if you're on a domestic flight / intra-EU). Be prepared for a bit of a walk and to go up and down a few times in the lifts.

However, for elite level FFs, you can get complimentary car parking in the BA executive club zone. But now that this has gone, I'm not sure what will happen to that part. And most times, the parking within the executive club part is chockers anyway.

Duty free - don't bother buying it here. It is expensive, and unbeknown to a lot of people, Manchester City Council get a rake off from it. :eek:
The staff at the business desk also don't seem to realise that QC membership allows you to check in there (because there's no QC desk), so you might have a few problems convincing them that you really are allowed priority check in and priority baggage handling on your QF flights.

However, the DOM BA exec club is superb. It's situated above the food court, so you can look through the glass at everyone down below. Kind of makes you feel special, doesn't it ? :D

They've got Stella, Boddies and Newky Brown, and I was very happy with the selection of spirits there (even Drambuie and Cointreau in the J lounge). Oh yes. The sandwiches weren't bad either.
