Welcome to this flight report, detailing a flight I took with British Airways flying one of their Boeing 777-200ER aircraft (registration G-VIIK) from Boston to London Heathrow in May 2015. I'd later connect onto a flight to Vienna from Heathrow.
The early evening is quite a busy time for international departures from Boston's Terminal E, however the check-in and security process this time didn't involve much waiting-around.
Boston's Terminal E offers great views of the airfield!
The 787-9 Dreamliner has such a sleek design!
At the time of booking I was almost going to book with Turkish, so this would have been my plane!
Aer Lingus, my home airline!
Soon it was time to head towards the gate for my flight to LHR!
Onboard the roomy 9-abreast 777.
We soon pushed-back and taxiied towards the runway.
Here's a video of the takeoff:
Climbing as we depart Boston.
After an inital drinks service, where I loaded up on two G&Ts, the main meal was served. I honestly forget what the meal was, but from what I remember it was mediocre at best.
After the meal I checked out the inflight entertainment. Luckily this was a refurbished aircraft, so the quality was pretty decent! The cabin felt very relaxing.
I eventually tried to get some sleep, but wasn't very successful.
Obligatory pic of us passing Ireland, a few hours later! On eastbound transatlantic flights, I've noticed that the pre-landing snack/breakfast is often served over Ireland, regardless of which airline you are flying.
I can't really remember what was served as a pre-landing snack, but I think it was just a croissant and I ordered a coffee to go with it.
Slowly descending over the UK!
Here's a video of the landing:
On the ground at LHR! Unusually, we pulled into a parking position without jetbridge access. While this appeared to frustrate most passengers, I really didn't mind since it meant I could examine the mighty 777 up close!
After arriving into Terminal 5, I made my way towards Terminal 3 to catch my connection to Vienna!
Boston - BOS
London - LHR
To conclude, this was a very comfortable overnight transatlantic flight experience. Although the catering could have been a little better, it was overall a very enjoyable flight. I liked getting up-close to the 777 as we disembarked the aircraft!
