This report is covering my flight back to Paris after this daytrip in London.

I used the Piccadilly Line to reach Heathrow, Terminal 5 station is well designed, within seconds you are at check in level thanks to their elevators.

Security went smoothly.

As I have two hours to wait before my flight I elected a seat facing the arrival runway in use.

Trafic is mostly BA,

B767 from BA and B777-300ER from TK, some get to experienced long haul comfort on European hop, isn’t it James?

And what I though was a 767 at first, finally turned up to be one of the new 787.

I was secretly hoping for a Dove aircraft, and it turned out to be the case with the G-EUPG doing the favour today.

They are quite tasty.

Our cruising altitude is only FL230.

Due to major thunderstorm around Paris, we flew straight south first and then turned 90 degrees left as shown on the overhead screens.

And this is my first time going through immigration at Orly, no queue though.

Conclusion

BA did their job, they are providing a good and efficient product on their European flights, Catering is standard but satisfactory and you do get a full bar service which is a plus, seats are comfortable but with sign of tears.

Thank you for your attention.
