The 747-400 is currently my 3rd most flown aircraft (128 flights to date), although sadly it'll only fall the rankings from hereon in. Of the remaining BA 747 fleet, the only ones I hadn't flown...

The last time I flew through TBIT (in July?) the terminal was nearly dead. Nearly everything was shut, except for Starbucks.

Where are they starting from if they're avoiding LHR-CAI, but CMN and DOH are obvious transit points. I'm genuinely curious now! I don't think any TP are worth the expense and time of going via CMN...

I guess the only people booking to go to Brazil tomorrow are those that have to go, hence the high fares. They know there'll be limited tourists so no point trying to attract them with low last...

Catering was never really the defining feature of buying a J ticket. If they are happy lying across 3 Y seats, book economy. Otherwise book J. Austin does't seem to go direct until 1 Oct. Before...

M&S in arrivals is closed. I think Boots is pretty much the only thing open, and there's very little food (maybe none fresh).

There's plenty of mixers onboard (inc tonic), but no ice or lemon.
