Pretty sure it shouldn't take that long to get there. I guess the headwinds are really bad today...

Of course, that only shows you estimated departure and estimated arrival. Not estimated take-off and estimated landing.

It's a trap. Prepare for a long ground hold.

it usually happens when the plane is at the gate and they want people to board more or less on time, hence the slight delay in the departure time, but currently they have a very late slot to take off so they estimate that late landing. So probably you will board the plane then either sit for a long time, don't worry you will leave the gate area but then they move it next to the runway in a holding point. (Done that a few times) or if you lucky they will find a slot earlier and the landing time will improve.

Finally boarded for an 1850 departure and then did a tour of Hounslow followed by a long wait at the hold. Wheels up was about 1939 if I remember correctly.

CE wasn't full but the overhead bins were! So annoying when that happens but fortunately no-one took 2A so I occupied my usual 2C position and stuffed everything under the seats.

Happy to see one of the retro liveries next door but one...



Ride was fine, lucky to have missed the worst of the gales.

My wife is from Glasgow, KY (GLW) so that was my first thought!
