Thanks & Pre Dep drinks

Thanks for the great trip report!

One thought on pre-departure drinks, BR must be one of the few airlines that does not serve champagne in premium classes before take-off. When I recently asked a sr manager why, the reply was that the airline didn't want to pay the tax on alcohol opened on the ground unless they really, really have to under extreme circumstances!

I also hear that 777s will soon ply the N Pacific for BR, and the -400s will be back on the London route come December...although refitted without F but new Premium Laurel Business Class service.
