I think I posted about this upthread, but this dish was absolutely delicious.

Thank you! Looking forward to it. The Husband will have a long drive when we land in the morning but he's insistent that I partake in all the beverages on offer

We're thinking that we won't bother with breakfast until we land and have a quick shower in the lounge. Is the breakfast in Arrivals recommended?

Breakfast in the lounge is always better than on the plane, and if you are arriving into LHR in F you will have access to CCR dining in the arrivals lounge, which is nicer and offers more variety than the main buffet. There's a review here which will give you a good idea of what to expect https://www.pointsbrotherhood.com/re...lounge-lhr-t5/ (as you can see in those pics, don't get too excited about the showers, they're pretty basic, but you can have a bath if you would like)

The bath I had last time seemed like it was filling a lot slower than in the past. I only got it up to about half-full before I had to get out as the lounge was closing. In the past, I have been able to get it full up to overflowing to get the full infinity bath experience.

Seems to have switched handedness between the lounge and the flight, perhaps a glass of rose too many!

Agreed - as is happening in many places such as hotels Im sure they have fitted regulators to limit the flow in an effort to save water.

I am left handed but is how it was set up

I have no recollection swapping them !

Just checked my originals and they are wrong for breakfast and dinner!

The Cabin Crew Lady was from Turin if that helps!

The window is on the right side so not flipped!

This was Oct 17 still strange canopes

HI all, another newbie BA F class question. My hubby is not a fan of champange (forshame considering LPGS) - would it be ok for him to ask for a glass of wine instead for the pre drink option? Thanks again - one week to go to our flight (BA217 LRH to IAD) and so excited!
