comment Bought economy and was issued first class ticket?
Actually, that's a good point, on BA short-haul there is typically a business cabin (or not, in this case); not first. I was probably thinking of US airlines here, which normally brand the non-economy cabin as First. But I think the general point is still true.

@ecatmur, wonderful, that's the closest so far. Shame it's not available for Oyster.

DumbCoder, it's not that weird, just a lack of joined-up thinking from TfL...

@DumbCoder that is not correct on the DLR for example - those machines don't provide journey history. Also, I was looking in the question for a way to do it online.

@DumbCoder as you say, that's not immediate, so doesn't give me a chance to fix it straight away.

comment Can I travel to Macedonia and Albania on Schengen visa? Do I need transit visa for Germany if my stay is less than 4 hours within the airport?
Ok, My mistake, I'm sorry. Still, the downvote stands. This is not at all obvious, it doesn't deserve an 'of course'.

When you say "prepay monthly", I assume you mean a Travelcard? No, I maintain only a cash balance, with Auto Top-up.

comment Can I check the “in-travel” status of my Oyster card?
@GayotFow sure, I could ask then. I was actually really thinking of when I'm in the middle of the journey - i.e. on the train. If I touch out when I haven't touched in, I end up with an incomplete journey. Whereas if I can check if I haven't touched in, I can get off the train and know that I need to ask them to fix the situation :)
