The food out of NBO normally sounds delicious, but I've never had any catering from there that tastes good. Last year they served the most enormous prawns on a dish, but the whole thing tasted of...

Check in KUL opens strictly 3 hours before departure, so you'll be waiting around a bit before that if you arrive from BKI early, and your bags can't be checked in.

One option if you want to...

Connections play a large part of the equation too. Arriving late in the day in LHR leaves very little scope for onward connections, particularly to the States.

The fact that most European airlines...

You can use the BA or QF lounges, and depending on if the flight is running on time, you'll have about 45-60 minutes to use the lounge. Security screening is done at the gate, so make sure to leave...

Outdoorsy things are good, I like a nice hike. Somewhere to get some fresh air (hence Rainier or the ferry). Can't drink this trip unfortunately, so craft beer is out :(

Thank you both for your input!

I've decided against Mt Rainier - it's just a bit too far. But some great alternative ideas for me to mull over. Is the ferry over to Bremerton any good? I went to...

OMG, Oasis would be so much better for boarding music than the current stuff.

If they know how to bid, then yes. "There and back" routes are generally not very popular with MF crew, unless you...

I think Virgin names/d their service. IIRC the LHR-IAD was called "The Diplomat". Can't remember where or when I read that, but was certainly a good few years ago.

The question is whether you want your bags to be within grabbing distance. If you are sat at a bassinet/bulkhead seat, then you can't have anything on the floor, everything needs to go into the...

Row one is good apart from 1C, which probably the most bumped into seat on the aircraft, especially during boarding. Other row 1 seats are good though for the minimal extra space, plus getting served...

If it is the case that the lift is inop, then there would be NOTHING in the upper deck galley, including bins (so nowhere to put rubbish), no washbags, nowhere to stow bottles of water, nowhere to...

The super high J was too much premium capacity I think for SAN, the Mid J is probably a better fit.

T3 vs T5? I guess it's more practical logistics than anything else

I don't know who SeanM is, but SAN was never a 789. In the last year or two it's been (mostly) B777-300ER in summer and B747 Super High J in winter.

Sure, but it might be a little melted! If you don't want to miss out, ask when the ice cream will be served and set an alarm.

Ice cream (mini magnums) is only on long haul flights leaving LHR before 1630 or 1700 I believe. On later flights and return sectors there's tuck boxes loaded and available in the galley.

The upper deck is normally a very pleasant place to be. Bizarrely the noisiest row for engine noise is 60, the forward most row.
Service starts at the back of the cabin, so aim for row 64.

Thanks everyone. When I arrived someone was just coming out so I went in before the door closed. Very friendly staff there, and a reasonable spread.
