Welcome to my latest trip report, documenting a flight with British Airways from London Heathrow to Dublin. I had landed into Heathrow on an American Airlines Boeing 777-300ER coming from New York JFK. Here's what happened next!



Exhausted from my overnight transatlantic flight, I comforted myself with some Pret a Manger!

On the bus from the terminal to the waiting A319 we passed some A380s and B747s!

It was a pretty standard busy LHR-DUB flight. Being an ex-British Midland aircraft, the interior of this A319 had the bmi interior which isn't as comfortable as the standard BA A320 family interior.

Terminal 1 would close a few months after I took this trip. British Airways moved its Heathrow-Dublin route to Terminal 5 and Aer Lingus moved to the newly-built Terminal 2.

I had forgotten that United Airlines once had this livery!

This was one of British Airways's first Dreamliners. It had just been delivered from Boeing that week.

A South African A330 or A340 always seems to be parked in this spot whenever I'm at Heathrow!

Here's a video of the takeoff:



A simple snack and drink was offered onboard!

After a brief 30 mins of flying the descent into Dublin began.

Here's a video of the rainy approach and landing:

Luckily were were able to depart using a jetbridge! We were quickly processed through passport control and soon on our way home!

Conclusion

As I had just arrived on an overnight flight from the USA, I was rather tired for this flight and perhaps should have taken a direct EI flight JFK-DUB. That said, BA has moved its LHR-DUB flights to Terminal 5 at Heathrow and so perhaps that may make this type of journey a little more comfortable! The service onboard this short flight was adequate and I was happy to land on-time in Dublin!
