Transport : Airlines Related: British Airways There is something very disorientating about flying late at night in the dark. You look out of the window and into blackness, with no idea where you are, particularly if you are on a British Airways flight without drop-down screens like the one I am currently flying on. Our Travel Auctions Sort Bypopularlatestending As an aside, there are no charging points for your laptop on this A319, even in Club or Business Class, which is extremely frustrating because my laptop is hovering at about 10% battery life and we are only halfway through the flight. Thankfully my flight is not long. BA flies from Nice to Gatwick in around 2 hours. With 20 minutes of my flight being takeoff and landing, where I can’t use my laptop anyway, the lack of power is not a complete disaster. But I digress. Flying at night reminds me of a rather horrific movie I watched many years ago, where a plane flew along with the world was disappearing behind it. A black … [Read more...] about Evening Flight Review: British Airways A319 Club Europe Business Class

News Pictured above is my delightful meal in the Canopy Airport Lounge at Nice Airport in France last night. Believe it or not, I tend to eat very healthily. At the luxury hotels that I stay at, I only ever order egg white omelette for breakfast and favour Bircher muesli and fruit salads. For other meals, I bulk up on salads where I can and I never, ever eat crisps. That is until last night, when the only edible options in the lounge were crisps, stale bread and wilted cheese (oh and let’s not forget the communal jam…). Our Travel Auctions Sort Bypopularlatestending This is the worst British Airways airport lounge I have ever been in, certainly for food. It is not an official British Airways airport lounge. You can access this lounge with a Priority Pass or a Lounge Pass, but it is the lounge that you get access to if you are departing from Nice Terminal 1 on British Airways. My journey started at this delightful Canopy lounge at Nice Airport Terminal 1. This is the lounge … [Read more...] about Is Nice Airport’s British Airways Airline Lounge The Worst In The World?
Transport : Airlines Related: British Airways I regularly fly on British Airways out of London Heathrow to Nice, just have a read of my European British Airways Flight Reviews to find out what the Heathrow route is like, but today I flew from Gatwick. Our Travel Auctions Sort Bypopularlatestending I actually prefer to fly out of Heathrow because I am a major fan of Heathrow Terminal 5 with it’s modern and impressive design and the glamorous facilities, all set inside a modern aircraft hanger-style building with glass sides and loads of structural detailing. I love all the light that streams in from it’s glass sides, the futuristic advertising boards, the immaculately kept communal areas and the views out onto the tarmac. The British Airways lounges are particularly good here. You can read all about them including the best British Airways lounge in Terminal 5, they are all based on the upper floors so you can relax above the main terminal concourse and look down upon the … [Read more...] about Flight Review: British Airways A320 European Business Class From Gatwick
DOZENS of British Airways passengers were left stranded at Hewanorra Airport in St Lucia after their flights were cancelled. Holidaymakers took to social media to complain that they were forced to sleep on the airport floor due to a shortage of rooms. Two separate BA flights were affected. Flight BA2158 was due to fly from St Lucia to London yesterday at 8:05pm - but it ended up being cancelled after delays. An earlier BA flight, BA2159 to Grenada, which landed in St Lucia from London Gatwick, was also cancelled. The reason for the cancellations is currently unknown. Passengers claimed they were told that there were no hotel rooms available for the night. Photos on Twitter showed disgruntled passengers, who claimed they were forced to sleep on the terminal floor with no BA reps available for help. Many had travelled to St Lucia to watch the cricket, which caused the shortage of rooms on the island. One woman travelling alone said she was "frightened" by herself at the airport. … [Read more...] about Furious British Airways passengers forced to sleep on airport FLOOR after their flight was cancelled
Transport : Airlines Related: American Express Gold card, British Airways, Heathrow, London Heathrow This week I was terribly lucky to book my Christmas flights out of Heathrow rather than Gatwick with its drone problems. The London Heathrow (LHR) Terminal 5 flight to Nice is a route I regularly fly and was a great experience as usual. Our Travel Auctions Sort Bypopularlatestending The trip started with a Pod trip as I always prefer to pay the extra and to use Pod Parking. Check-in was quick and easy and we were advised to go to the Heathrow Galleries South lounge which was nearer to our gate than the Gatwick North lounge. Big mistake. The BA Galleries South airport lounge always seems to be super busy with very few spare seats, and coincidentally, every time I go in there, someone seems to do a massive sneeze while I am inspecting the buffet food! So after a quick walk around the South lounge, we decided to head to the British Airways Galleries North Lounge in Terminal 5 which was, … [Read more...] about Christmas Flight: British Airways London Heathrow To Nice In Club Europe
