    BA155 LHR T1 to Cairo Premium Economy (World Traveller Plus) Despite arriving at LHR T1 on a delayed flight from Luxembourg, I still had 45 minutes to relax in the BA International Lounge. The lovely lady at reception confirmed that the remaining BA routes at T1 would be staying there until its ...

    The alarm on my phone decided not to work this particular morning. Thankfully my mother had the good sense to phone me. Standing in the check-in Q at 05:55, there was an announcement that due to the late arrival of the inbound flight there would be a 6-hour delay. After checking in we had a ...

    AA290 JFK T8 to Dublin Using the Priority lane, we checked in 3 hours before the scheduled departure time of 19:05. My mothers's boarding pass had been stamped 'TSA precheck', meaning she did not have to remove her shoes or go through the x-ray machine. We had a good laugh at being told to ...

    Agadir to Liège via Lillle First time on Thomas Cook, booked on the Condor Airlines website. Inbound flight from Brussels was diverted to Marrakech due to poor visibility at AGA. A flight from Paris was similarly affected. Eventually, after a delay of almost 3 hours, we boarded with the ...

    Marrakech to Agadir Having just arrived from Luxembourg, we sat on the aircraft for 40 minutes while half of the passengers disembarked and their seats were soon filled with those returning home. Luxair 'holiday' flights do not have a Business cabin but the seats are comfortable with adequate ...

    The old terminal at Luxembourg has now been razed to the ground. Now we have a much bigger one which I find rather soulless, although there is a very good self-service brasserie up the stairs or lift above the check-in area overlooking the apron and runway. Checking in was very swift and I ...

    Having just arrived from New York, I exited DUB T2 for the short walk to T1. I was quite horrified when I saw the check-in queue for T2 departures. The concourse at T1 was a different matter. I was checked in in a matter of minutes. I proceeded to security. This has to be the longest security ...

    BA418 Heathrow T1 to Luxembourg I have been flying frequently between these two cities for 11 years now, more often than not on BA. The alternatives are Luxair and CityJet to London City or easyJet to Gatwick. I first landed in the Grand Duchy in September 2002 on a BA BAe146 from LGW. The ...

    BA1423 Belfast City to Heathrow T1 I arrived @ BHD at 7am - a little too early for my liking - for a scheduled departure of 08:40. Check-in was swift as I was the only person in the Executive Club line, leaving me wishing I hadn't rushed to get to the airport. 90 minutes in an airport is for ...

    BA780 LHR-ARN I was running a bit late so I used the First check-in area for the first time as there were queues at all other desks. Security quicker than usual. I spent 30 minutes in the F lounge before being called to the C gates. Effortless boarding. At the last minute I had changed my seat ...

    on: B737-700

    7.1

    Luxair has a small fleet of 737s (2 737-800s and 3 737-700s) and as far as I know they are used exclusively for leisure destinations, although this was not the case a few years ago as I remember flying to FRA and CDG on one. Luxembourg to Agadir via Marrakech: Take-off shortly after the ...

    EK724 Addis Ababa to Dubai I will always remember this flight as it was one of my best ever. I checked in just over 2 hours before the scheduled departure time of 16:10. This was quick and very friendly. Perhaps someone can explain why the long line of young female migrant workers had a separate ...

    I arrived at LHR T1 on the BA421 from Luxembourg. This flight was delayed due to bags having to be offloaded, de-icing and, no surprises, congestion at Heathrow. The flight lasted 1 hour 20 minutes. In the other direction, it is normally 50 minutes. As is my custom, I went landside for a couple of ...

    Heathrow to Boston on the BA213 Check-in was very slow with many passengers travelling with everything but the kitchen sink. After a glass or two of Taittinger in the First Lounge, I made my way to the B gates for the 11:20 departure. Boarding was very prompt and painless. The WT+ cabin ...
