BA operates relatively small aircarft on their LHR-ATH flights. By small I mean single aisle. It’s about as far as I like to travel on an A320/321 with their seats.
BA operates a small lounge at ATH, which is located adjacent to the BA gate. However, as Security is broken up by groups of gates you need to leave a little time to get through to the boarding area. The lounge has a mixture of soft and hard seating as you can see:
It’s well decorated and the staff are helpful. There is WiFi but a shortage of plug sockets.
The food is, however, excellent. Pre-prepared salads, nice cakes, sandwiches and snacks are an excellent example of how BA performs when it does well.
There is a good range of papers and magazines, a wide range of soft drinks and a tea/coffee station.
The only bad part was the business man who decided that socks and shoes were not required and so provided a display of his feet:
Of course he sat next to me on the flight so I ‘enjoyed’ the same view for the next 3 hours.
The plane has a hot meal scheduled and indeed there was a choice of fish or chicken. Below is the chicken, served on the tray:
The crew were attentive, but largely absent whilst they served the rest of the plane. No holding at Heathrow (!) and we arrived at a stand in the main terminal so it was fairly quick to get out and on the way to my next flight
Perfectly OK, if average, BA flight.
