Hello from quarantine! Like the rest of the world *almost*, GSTP is keeping calm, and carrying on right now, and this week, some company would be lovely.

We’ll host a series of online Q&A, and travel chats this week, and hopefully bring in a special guest or two to make them less boring. And one thing we promise – they will be boring.

Got burning questions only I can answer? That’s doubtful, but if somehow true, this is your chance to corner me in front of a live audience. Jokes aside, this aims to be informative and fun, bringing our shared passion for travel to the forefront.

Like all content on GSTP, these will be free and always will be. Join in?

Everyone has a favorite preference of social media platform, so we’ll aim to hit each one this week. For those that read GSTP regularly, at this point it’s time to give up the royal “we” game and say by “we”, we mean “me” – Gilbert – aka Gib to people who follow extra closely.

The “we” part will come if I can find a great co-host. Here’s the layout for how this week lays out. Also, if you have a podcast, chat or anything you’d like me on, just get in touch.

TONIGHT (Friday, May 1st): We’ll do an Instagram Live at 9PM BST (4PM EST, 1PM Pacific).

Twitter Live: Saturday (May 2nd) I’ll do a 30 minute Twitter Live at at 2PM British Time, 9AM EST. I’ll take any questions, and if you have any you’d like to submit in advance, please do so in the comments section here, or on twitter. Simply visit this link around these times.

Facebook Live: I’ll do a Facebook Live Sunday, May 3rd at 5:00 PM British Time, 12 PM Eastern etc. I’m hoping to have a guest join me on this one, which will be great fun if it all works out. I’ll under promise, and attempt to over deliver. You can find the GSTP Facebook here.

Instagram Live: While we’re going nuts, why not give Instagram a whirl too. Instagram is the platform I always forget about, and this will be a more thematic lesson, with my insights on a topic you’ll have to tune in to find out. Oooh, the drama. This will be Friday, April 24th, 5:30PM British Time, 12:30PM EST, and so forth. Here’s the link to GSTP Instagram.

And in case you hadn’t already picked up from the humor on GSTP, these will be very dry, and boring sessions, with the exception of a nice drink. If you plan to watch these painfully dull sessions, do yourself a favor and find something refreshing to eat or drink to keep you amused. Plan? Super.

  1. Hi Gilbert

    I live in London and a BA Silver member.

    There are lots of deals around for long haul destinations originating in Europe and connecting via LHR. For example , Cape Town return in Club in November for about £1200 originating in Oslo. If I bought that ticket and on the way back, simply didn’t take the last leg LHR to Oslo and just went home, would BA care? A similar London – Cape Town return in Club at the same time is about £2650 so theres a huge saving originating in Oslo.

    I haven’t booked this flight yet as November may still be too soon after Covid – who knows.

    I have booked BA Club Stockholm to Honolulu (via LHR and LAX) for January though. 640 tier points in one trip but again I may not take the last leg on the return of LHR to Stockholm as I live in London. I’ll forfeit 40 tier points but hey.

    I would be very interested to hear your views on this phenomenon and whether BA cares if one does this.

    Kind regards
