This is my fist trip report. I really hope you all enjoy it!

The flight was little bit late due to a late arrival of the inbound plane from LCY.

They changed flight crew and started boarding when we were supposed to be taking off.

My first time boarding a British Airways plane:

The first impression from the cabin was good, nice leather seats and more than decent legroom, maybe the best I've ever had.

The flight was not full at all, notice how many seats I had for me. The load was around 65%

Then we took off and we headed north and the inflight service started I was expecting a sandwich but a nice tray came.

After that came the second drink service, I opted for the worldwide famous Gin&Tonic, was actually pretty good.

Then the third round of drinks I had a second one, drink with a view.

After two hours into the flight we started our descent in London City, that was little bit bumpy.

Madrid - MAD


London - LCY



Both F/A were brilliant, enough information from the cockpit and they did a nice job on that flight.

It was my first time flying BA but for sure won't be the last one, the service and the crew were excellent.

The quality of the pics is maybe not the best they were taken with the smartphone.

    Thank you for sharing this report with us and welcome to the site!

    E-Jets are always very comfortable and I like their winglets.

    BA continues to impress me with their intra-European catering, that tray service is very surprising (next time please take a picture with the lid off :) ). We just had LHR-MAD reports on IB, which were drink only service. BA offers a vastly superior soft-product, sounds like you had a good crew with three drink services!

    Welcome to flight report!

    Legroom looks abundant, the seat looks comfortable too.

    The service was really impressive considering that this is a regional plane. Were the cookies good?

    I think 7 is pretty generous for having no IFE, but I guess for a two hour flight it could be fine, at least there's a magazine.

    Overall I guess Cityflier is doing better than Mainstream BA on an intra-Europe flight

    Thank you for sharing this flight report

    There have been 2 reports on BA E-jets in the past few days and both seem like really good flights. I love E-jets--they are so comfortable in Economy compared to most other aircraft. It's always a good flight on BA with a G&T or two :-)

    Thanks for sharing and welcome to Flight-Report!
