After an exhaustive start to the winter holidays, it was time to head to the UK. After arriving off an American Airlines flight from RDU, I was off to catch my flight to my final destination, Edinburgh. When I arrived at the gate, unsurprisingly it was extremely crowded per usual at Heathrow ;-). To my delight, the boarding process was extremely efficient and I found myself on the plane in no time. As I walked onboard the A321-200 (G-EUXH, which was around 14 years old at the time), I headed straight for my seat. It had 30 inches of pitch that was OK, but not great. I couldn't help but admire how snazzy the cabin looked with the blue mood-lighting and the black leather seats with the BA Speedmarque etched into the headrests.
The seats were relatively comfortable, and they would pose no problem on this short flight.
As we reached our cruising altitude, the Cabin Crew started their M&S buy on board service. It is quite unfortunate for British Airways to turn to a buy on board system on Euro Traveler flights, especially since they market themselves as a "premium airline," when, in essence, they are the same as Ryanair and Easyjet in respect to the amenities onboard. Before long, we had started our descent in to Edinburgh and the cabin was prepared for landing. Follow my Instagram: @life_jonathanl
London - LHR
Edinburgh - EDI
All in all, British Airways isn't a bad option on shorthaul flights, however it is quite sad to see them go in the direction of a low cost carrier.
