England London Heathrow Qantas Airbus A380

21 September 2009

Heathrow

My flight left Heathrow at a very civil time of about 11:30 in the morning. So I left the hotel without drama at 9, walked across the road to the Earls Court tube station which is on the line that goes direct to Heathrow. Waited about 2 seconds for a train which was empty and I was at the airport in under 30 minutes.
Going through customs was also painless, I checked in at the first class counter and some ass kissing ensued from the Qantas concierge. As Qantas is moving terminals next month, they dont have a lounge currently, so you have to use the British Airways one, it was fairly basic, the coffee was terrible (from a machine) but they did have bacon sandwiches.
The plane for the return journey is an A380, and being a plane nerd I am quite excited, I am however flying economy class. The seats are much nicer than 747, the on demand movie thing is also quite a bit nicer. It was generally a much more comfortable flight to Singapore then on the way to England. I recall watching American Beauty which I had not seen, good film.

England-London-Heathrow-Qantas-Airbus A380 - Here is my plane, also known as my tomb for the next 26 hours (longer than expected, read on!).
