a quick stop at menton

Hello all,
here is the last route of a series that took me from London to Tel Aviv via Istanbul and Nice to visit my parents that were on holidays on the way back. 
Could be worse right? Well this was also a funny avgeek experience as there were not less than 3 different companies for 4 legs!!  

Avios Miles earned with this flight: 210

And yes these were the good old times when the fare included a checkin luggage, free seat selection and snack and drinks! Almost a J to nowadays BA standards!!

I couldn't find my boarding pass anymore, but I can tell from the picture I sat somewhere on F raws toward the rear of the cabin.

Menton is a really pretty and a lot quieter city than Nice

Being on holidays in Menton, it was fairly easy to drive to Nice Airport.

We had the new cabin that is now the previous generation - yet the more comfy one!
One thing I like about BA is the Screens on the cabin that display flight information

The crew seemed very professionnal and gave me a really nice and warm welcome which deserves to be noted - to their credit.

Once we took off the service started - I was expected the wrap that BA used to give but instead we had some shortbreads… I was told dinner time was passed.

I fell asleep despite the coke and when I woke up the mood lighting was on and as we were about to land they retracted the screen.

Cabin crew8.5

Nice - NCE


London - LHR



BA: The cabin has been densified- 180 seats the max on an A320... But the plus is the screens in the cabin
The seat were actually OK ish but the pitch is terrible
The crew was really professional, and it is the strengh of BA: you know what to expect and BA delivers it. No surprises and this is what you want for your "home" flight.

LHR: Very clean, very big and bright, a lot of options but too big actually XD
Can't wait for the crossrail..

NCE: You can tell Terminal 1 is the old one...
More interesting features from the outside than inside.
