British Airways First Class Trip Report

BA FIRST CLASS – JFK-LHR BA117 This is still operated by the 747 aircraft, unless you manage to bag seat 1A or 1K I do prefer the 777. On this trip we did manage to bag the front seats so you are technically sitting in the nose of the aircraft, the most private of seats. […]


I am a BA Gold Executive Card Holder, you will notice I am not flying as often as I did in the past, this is due to the level of service which has declined and declined over the last year or so. Yesterday on flight BA148 it only confirmed my total disappointment in British Airways, […]


I visited the ONE WORLD Lounge when I flew back from CDG to LHR on BA in Club Europe at the weekend – a quick tip is once you have checked in downstairs, there are doors that take you direct to Security and Passport Control withouth the need to go back upstairs and queue. When […]


  I do like this lounge when in Bahrain Airport, usually plenty of places to sit and a good smoking room.  Accessed up the main escalator in the middle of the concourse. Always a plesant welcome from the Lounge Lizzards. The Falcon Lounge is xclusively for Business Class Passengers and Gold and I believe Silver […]

Emirates First Class Lounge – Dubai Airport

Arguably one of my most favorite lounges in the world! Access from the main concorse up the escalator or the lit, turn right (to the left is the Buisiness Class Lounge) plenty of seating and all very cosy.  A fantastic fine dinning area with as great selection of food and even better selection of wines. […]

Galleries First Lounge – Heathrow T5

Not sure why this is billed as the First Class Lounge, as you would not go in here if you had a First Class Ticket as you would head for the Concord Lounge (see previous Blog). Mainly full of BA Gold Card Holders (I am one) that are travleing in anything but first. Great selection […]

Concord Room- BA Heathrow Terminal 5

The most exclusive Lounge in Heathrow.  You can only gian access if you are travleing on a British Airways First Class Ticket, or ariving on one and in transit for a connecting flight in a differnet class. Billed as the epitome of elegance (it has a few chandeliers hanging from the celling), with full waiter […]

Montenegro – The Land of Mystery & Speedos

So we had to go and see what all the fuss was about!  From ‘OMG it’s amazing’ and Oh It looks stunning, its all from James Bond dont you know’ to ‘where’?? We stayed at the Queen on Montenegro in Becici just outside of Budva.  A fantastic place as a base to explore this mysterious […]
