Back from scotland


Hello everyone and welcome to this return flight from a weekend away in Scotland.
I don't have that many pictures from the way out, besides I flew with Ryanair and so I guess not really a point to report it.

I checked in with the BA app, and I couldn't seem to find the boarding pass but just my booking confirmation.

Security was passed super fast.


The aiport is built has a single L shaped building, with not so many gates and it was very easy to find ours.

I don't introduce you the cabin you know it… At least it isn't the new A320neo cabin with the awful new ironing boards
I remember the crew was quite pleasant and mostly made out of Scottish personel - which is fine if you have spent a few days in Scotland beforehand to understand it!

The good old times when food was complimentary..

The magazine comprises actually 3 issues: on shop, High life and the business life



The domestic network of BA, somewhat still offering a good coverage.

Conclusion

BA: not a new plane but ok
I like this old config with the seats and the live geopositionning on the screens
The good old times when there wasn't the BOB introduced yet..
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..
