Delta Flight 29 (Heathrow to Atlanta)

I had booked a flight with delta before and we ended up flying on a Virgin Atlantic plane – very nice that was too! However, this time that was not to be – I actually went on a Delta Plane for the first time. I must say that the planes themselves are a step down from […]

Premium Plaza T4 Heathrow Lounge

After having used the Sky Team lounge before my trip to Australia, sadly there’s just no going back anymore when it comes to flying out of Heathrow.  I must admit that in a foreign country I quite enjoy wandering around the airport to get some last minute snacks & gifts – however, there’s no need […]

Heathrow Terminal 4 Sky team Lounge

When we travelled to Australia from London Heathrow terminal 4 we had the opportunity to use the Sky Team lounge, and this was our first ever use of an airport lounge…  I must admit that there’s no turning back from that point, and any flight now which isn’t preceded by an airport lounge, just won’t […]

China Southern Airlines Flight 304 (London to Ho Chi Minh City)

This flight was a huge surprise for me because it was significantly cheaper than anyone else for the flight between Heathrow and Ho Chi Minh city, so I had fairly low expectations. Most cheap airlines have cramped seats but this was surprisingly roomy and each seat had access to one of the best entertainment consoles […]

British Airways Flight 35 (London to Chennai)

This was my first ever flight and the things i was most worried about were the take-off, landing and turbulence. To be honest all of these were pretty comfortable, as was the rest of the flight (although the amount of room you have doesn’t seem great). Even the check-in service was smooth and easy both […]

Iberia Flight 6313 (London to San Jose)

We sadly had this airline chosen for us as part of a tour with Travelsphere to Costa Rica (with a Nicaragua add on done by road). The flight involved a change in Madrid, with the outward leg being 100% done by Iberia and the return leg being done by Iberia across the Atlantic whilst the […]
