    2018 Trip part trois

    Well it was time to head back for the 3rd time this year.
    Flying BA Economy (shock) on the way out.
    Got our priv cards so can still access lounges and get 2x 32 kg bags each in the hold, etc etc.

    Inverness-Heathrow-Kuala Lumpur-Bkk.

    Heathrow Main T5 north.





    Got stuck right in.





    I wish.

    787-9
    Booked the 2 seats at the rear as there is a seat missing on the window side
    and is a great place to stack stuff.
    I get extra pillow and blanket and sleep down here for 6 hours undisturbed,
    leaving the wife with a double seat.
    Full recline and no bother from toilet noise or queues.









    Breaky

    Jack ... slumming it in Cattle Class ... heaven forbid!

    I hope the pre-flight lounges eased the inevitable pain

    There's a clued-in traveller with safety on his mind, there's never been a plane reverse into a mountain.

    A good question people always ask me Tax

    Connection at Heathrow on winter flight (1 a day) from Inverness is to short to catch the Bkk direct flight.
    This changes next winter when an earlier flight is added to Heathrow.


    More Lounges Means More Drinking.

    Cattle class, a train, some streetfood and a capsule hotel room ....All that seperates this from a Punty thread are some Pringles

    I thought they'd stopped doing that for economy flights.

    What company did you use?

    Keep the pics coming. Love these threads

    Yea Dill they did stop it, then this company appeared to offer the service, very nice service imo, they have increased the costs with new company.

    Has the airline industry ever posted findings about which are the safest seats in the event of a crash? Some must be safer than others.
