Welcome to my first trip report,from London Heathrow T1 to Hannover Langenhagen. This is the first of four trip reports I will be writing this summer. All I can say now is enjoy!

Getting to the airport was a breeze and I soon arrived. I arrived at the airport a bit too early, but checked in straight away anyway. I did not take any pictures before going airside because most people know what BA's check in desks look like in T1 anyway. I then went up to one of the cafe's- although I have to note that there are not many left,because T1 will be gone soon anyway. After hanging around for an hour, I passed through security and went straight to gate 2.

I am not very tall, so quite a bit of legroom for me!

Boarding was completed very quickly, but being in one of the T1 coledesac's it took forever to get pushback clearance. So I took another pic:

Finnally we were pushed out of the coledesac and made our long taxi to 9R.

The sky was clear which offered some beutiful views of north London






The cabin service than started from the front of the cabin offering complementary drinks and breakfasts. It took ages for the trolly to reach the back of the aircraft, but I had thought about that before and bought my own 'snack'

Nuts!

I was then treated to some very interesting cloud formations:

Once the channel was crossed, I finally got my breakfast and drink(tea)

We then started our very steep descent into HAJ. A lot of spoiler usage ensured.

I then experimented with some cabin shots

Then the seatbelt sign came on and we hit some light chop. Once the aircraft was in the ILS for runway 27, I started filming:




The stand guidance system didn't work so we were marschalled into the stand.

Immigration was quick and luggage was there within minutes.


And thats that, my next trip report will be with Lufthansa Cityline from MUC-BLG
