After 1h30 in the lounge and about 30 minutes in the boarding lounge, I boarded for London Heathrow.
As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:
35 minutes before departure, boarding is announced at gate C85 and group 1 priority passengers are called.
The problem is that at least 50 passengers are in this group, causing a natural congestion of this boarding. As a matter of fact, I find myself number 30 in the jetway in which we will wait a good ten minutes before being allowed to enter the aircraft.
Cabin and welcome
The cabin is the traditional cabin offered in the British Airways Airbus NEO, without a divider between the two seats.
The welcome is very cordial.
Service and catering
The service starts a few minutes after the seat-belt signs have been switched off.
On this afternoon flight, it is an afternoon tea which is proposed in vegetarian version or not.
I would take the non-vegetarian version of the sandwiches, the best will be the salmon canapé. The scone with the clotted cream will be excellent.
I’ll wash it all down with gin and tonic and a latte.
Arrival and disembarkation
We arrived at Heathrow under a torrent of water and had to wait in a remote position for about ten minutes until our arrival gate was free. Door fortunately located at concourse A, avoiding a long way to immigration.
A pleasant, uneventful flight.
