The BA1/2/3/4 service from London City to JFK has had some bad reliability problems recently and yesterday suffered from double cancellations when London City developed a crack.

At one time there were three or four all business airlines flying from London to the USA. They all ended after September 11 and it’s nice to see a new entrant in this market to compete with the big airlines flying from Heathrow or City. I did enjoy the trip, especially a good solid 6 hours of sleep on the way back.
A new airline is flying from London to New York. Using the cost-effective London Luton Airport and landing at Newark, this all Business Class airline has been flying from Paris for some months. The only new airline to fly this route for some years, it faces competition from other flying from Heathrow. However, great fares make it a very attractive proposition for business people and those wishing to pamper themselves.
The old Radisson at LAX has become a Hyatt affiliate hotel and so earns stay credits with Gold Passport, my must have frequent stay scheme. A last minute booking secured both a great rate and a good upgrade to a suite on the top floor. The hotel does a great job at protecting you from aircraft noise and run a good shuttle to and from the airport. Well worth considering if you need a stay in the LAX area.

One of the most desirable seats on BA’s 747-400’s is 64K, a backwards facing window seat with easy aisle access. It seems however, that passengers who have booked this are being moved to other open seats on the plane. So, if you have this booked check your seating and find something else you like.
