    I flew from LHR to LAS on BA275 in CW on a 747-400. This was the second leg of a DUB-LHR-LAS-CHS-MCO-LGW-DUB trip that I was taking with my parents. The cost of the ex-DUB ticket worked out at around EURO1400 per person (but the LAS-CHS-MCO bookings were made separately for about £740 per ...

    This was the first time I have departed Heathrow T3 using BA. The check-in process was very efficient, security fast and the BA lounge very good with the exception of there being too few toilets although these were very clean if you could find a vacant one. The lounge is large with lots of seating. ...

    This was a long weekend in Boston for our 40th wedding anniversary. We arrived at Terminal 5 at 09:00 for the 11:15 departure and were through bag check and security and into Departures by 09:25, which was far less stressful than the usual 06:00 mayhem I’ve suffered there for years. The ...

    Checkin Let’s face it, by choice none of us would take a flight at 3.40am, but that’s what we’d signed up to. Delhi is an airport that never sleeps and it was in full swing when we arrived at 1am. We only had a short wait without needing to pre-screen our luggage and were checked in and ...

    I'm not really a Grinch when it comes to Christmas, but travelling on the day itself had two key advantages - cost (prices drop dramatically) and the avoidance of a day of what can only ever be described as organised family chaos. However, when we set off I had already warned my family of intense ...

    Overall an underwhelming experience. Checked in online at T-24: managed to bag an emergency exit row seat. So far so good. Baggage drop also relatively smooth and headed airside at T5. 45 mins before flight we were all moved to the B gates (B45 I think it was) where we stood...and ...

    World Traveller Plus seat is a must for a long distance intercontinental flight, rather than the cramped World Traveller (Economic) class seat. Few degrees inclination and few more inches of seat width do really matter in making the long flight more bearable - with a reasonable fee addition. The ...

    Flew LHR to Las Vegas. As a BAEC silver member I used both the BA Galleries South Lounge and lounge at the B gates. The former was very busy but we managed to find seats easy enough. Hot food included a couple of curries, baked spuds and chilli. These we're being cleared away around 2pm but ...
