I wonder too . Maybe we need to get the "Up in Air" and "Terminal" to figure it out you think ?

I'm thinking cabin crew!

I too, wonder what the life is like being in the air all week(-day) long and all year round.

It's unlikely he'd be legally able to do the number of sectors he does as CC - he'd be out of hours! :p

1C is certainly my favourite!

Stez is right, but 1B was down as occupied, whereas I reckoned (correctly) that 1D would have an empty seat at 1E. So I had to slum it in 1D. First post updated, greetings from Northfields!

I therefore left home at 14:14 for my 15:50 flight, I got parked and handed over the keys for servicing, and into the airport terminal for 15:10. No delays in security, which took just 37 seconds to clear, so I was in the BA lounge in NCL at 15:16. One coffee and a slice of walnut and toffee cake. Boarding started at 15:35, I prefer to board last, so I boarded just before they closed the doors at 15:47.

Ha ha, are you going to be getting 'inspiration' for different Trip Report writers for each different day? I wonder who possibly could have inspired today's! ;)

Great to finally get a live (not) TR from BA's number 1 FF!

FatnLoud Aug 17, 14 12:51 pm

Oooh, if it looks like a TR, sounds like a TR and quacks like a TR, then it must be a ....

Heads down in case Matthandy is on the prowl :D

Keep up the good work!

Hoch Aug 17, 14 12:58 pm

Well this should make the week a little more interesting :)

I used to live in a halls block which other people walked through to get to their blocks. Fire alarms every weekend. Grrr

I'm looking forwards to this, though with some trepidation as I lost count of how many countries CWS was visiting whilst I was in Austria for 5 days.

If I manage to convince BotB to change his ticket and join me to Greece at a fellow fter's hotel, then HE could write the TR. :p

My dear, some of us have to work! And no, I won't be in London all week, even I can't fill up the cyber-space of FT with a week in London!

Um, I see exactly what you mean, but really that wasn't my intention. Clever idea though, but I think someone else could probably pull that one off better than me! So be prepared for excess detail in some areas, and none at all in others.

Ah ha, so if the Hilton Canary Wharf saves you time tomorrow you must be on the babybus? Did you not fancy the Ibis Styles hotel 5 minutes walk away from LCY? Tube from Canary Wharf to Canning Town then DLR to LCY?

I have stayed in that Hilton before and seems quite good, although mostly at weekends so the rate is lower.

watching with interest :cool:
