My second trip on American’s flight from Phoenix to Honolulu was on a 757 with a different configuration and my seat had great legroom.

It was pitch black when I left the hotel for the airport to catch my 7am departure to London Heathrow. Arriving at Terminal 1 I was whizzed up the escalator to the departures level. The Fast Track service at DUB is available to BA Club Europe customers and after scanning my boarding pass I was…
BA’s largest aircraft the A380 seats over 500 passengers. A series of delays, a noisy seat mate and a late arrival at Miami all conspired to make it a memorable trip – but not always for the right reasons.
BA’s much maligned Club Europe is good value if they offer you a pre-paid upgrade. No so much if you have to pay full-fare. My trip from London Heathrow to Hamburg demonstrates this.
After a short walk from the Aer Lingus lounge that I reviewed last week, I was at my gate. The terminal is not terribly exciting, but there are a small number of shops and places for coffee. Arriving at my gate there was no plane. There was plenty of seating and the Priority Line was…

Wet Leases, as the aviation industry calls the renting of planes from other operators can bring benefits and disadvantages for passengers as this recent trip showed. Two different wet leases operating on behalf of BA out of London City felt very different.
Two flights with european carrier, Finnair were great with the exception of an over-entitled fellow passenger. It prompted a couple of questions of flying etiquette….
BA’s little lounge at City fits the BA baby bus service to JFK, via Shannon. But a great crew and some tasty food made it a flight to remember.
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.
