This is my first report for Flight-Report.com and is possibly a little light on aviation detail, as it was mainly the lounge experience that I photographed.
After a week in the Black Forest, I opted to fly back from Basel to Heathrow.
I opted to fly back using the BA service from Basel Airport (full name: EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg) and bagged a bargain £69 fare to Heathrow. The option to upgrade to Club Europe was offered during the booking process, for a price of £567 which I naturally declined.
After booking my Y flight, that upgrade was mysteriously offered to me for about £60, so I snapped it up.
We got to the airport a tad early and waited for BA check-in to open.
Then it opened and two distinct queues formed - Club Europe and Euro Traveller.
BA use the Club Europe desk as their General Enquiries desk so the agent was stuck helping a passenger. Eventually the Y check in agent noticed and called us forward. That was a bit annoying but in the big scheme of things not a worry.
There was a massive queue for security but this was easily bypassed as they had Fastrack access for CE pax.
We headed up to the Skylounge. I'd seen pics of the lounge on Priority Pass website and it looked great. I was not disappointed.
Hot food consisted of tomato soup, quiches and mini pizzas while cold snacks were crisps, olives, cheeses etc.
Our flight was delayed by about 15 minutes, but I wasn't really worried.
Boarding was quick and the staff were great.
Take off was smooth and soon enough were we soaring over the Black Forest, and then through the clouds where the sun was shining.
Captain announced that our timetable 95 minute flight would be around 65 minutes, yet they still served a full meal.
Which looked like this:
There was a further drinks run, where I had my second bottle of Champagne.
Tea and coffee service was not provided due to turbulence, however we were offered other drinks. So that was another bottle :).
Then, over Kent, tea and coffee was offered, which was a nice touch as really, they needn't have bothered.
We arrived at Heathrow T5C, which involves a transit train to the main building and quite a long walk.
So three mini bottles of Champagne in a 65 minute flight. That's a record for me. :) And yet another great CE flight from BA, at a bargain price.

London - LHR
A great flight and confirms that Club Europe is a good step up from Euro Traveller, however not at full fare.
