It was REALLY nice to be back in LH F again, and to actually have PP clear for once. Note that LH still requires masks if that matters to you.

I love the fact they are flying 767-400 to Edinburgh. This was PN9 at booking so I felt good about my chances and getting 4 PZ seats the next day is awesome. 1 way fare but not too expensive (back on miles). Traveling with young kids so these old seats are the best for us. Genuine PP value
