I had a stupidly small amount of Avios left so used them for my flight home.
My hotel (Grasshopper) was at Glasgow Central and I pottered about the city before catching the bus to the airport.
It takes about 15 minutes, and costs £6.00.
The bus has free Wi-Fi.
I always get a sense of excitement when I get to an airport…
I was through security in no time, and headed for the lounge, which felt like it was miles away! I passed some tempting looking bars and restaurants, and given that I knew a Servisair lounge was waiting for me, there was a chance that I was passing up on a better place to spend time.
The lounge was OK - friendly enough staff and a darn sight brighter than many a Servisair lounge I have loitered in!
This was the snack offer. Toast was also on offer.
Toast, at 5.00pm. I ask you. And chicken soup.
I had neither, going straight to the drinks where I made my usual T&G. (A dash of tonic, topped up with gin.)
Some interesting art work!
There wasn't too much flight movement at this time on a Sunday evening, the odd easyJet flight and a couple of Flybe arrivals.
I chatted to another guest about the changes in travel over the years, and then it was time to go.
I was pleased that I was one of the specially painted BA Dove planes - 9 were repainted for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The plane felt new too, was fairly clean and fairly packed!
There was one drinks run, with the usual snacks on offer.
An uneventful flight, an on time arrival at Gatwick, where I met my pal who had just landed from Iceland.
After going through baggage reclaim
Then going to the transit station
For the transit to South Terminal (for the train station)
Then along the moving walkway.
And then to the train station.
To a queue of about 50 people queuing for tickets.
IDEA HAD :) - Bought a ticket, at Gatwick Train Station, on my iPhone. Then picked it up straight away at the empty 'Collect Tickets Only' machine. RESULT!
All in all, a lovely flight…
Glasgow - GLA
London - LGW
A quick domestic from Glasgow to Gatwick.

Thanks for sharing. The lounge looks pretty decent. I see you got one of the 2012 Olympic Dove livery planes. I like that you can get a Gin and Tonic on a short domestic hop with BA...that's not usually the case with AF.
Thanks for this FR.
You're lucky to have flown on a dove aircraft as this livery seems to disappear quickly.
The avios amount required for domestic flights is really competitive.
Just added a few more pics.
