Re: KRK-LHR on BA 12 September 2016

Thanks for your comments Andre. I have always enjoyed my flights with BA, even when our luggage didn't accompany us at Christmas 2006 the inflight product and service were very good (hot panini from MAN-LHR for example). My big gripe with BA starting to charge for inflight sandwiches is not just the...

Re: KRK-LHR on BA 12 September 2016

Thanks for your comments Stij. Our train from York goes into Kings Cross, which is on the Piccadilly Line to Heathrow but those Underground trains to Heathrow can get so packed (bad when you have luggage) and take so long that we decided to get the Heathrow Express from Paddington, which is a short ...

KRK-LHR on BA 12 September 2016

We had a great week in Krakow, with mostly good, warm weather. It is a place I would definitely visit again. Our holiday ended on 12th September, and the week seemed to have flown by! We caught the train from Krakow main railway station to the Airport. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/snbafan/...

Hi, Not meant to be offensive, just to point out about the main focus is on muslims in europe nowadays and the polish are really beaten up in the UK right now, quite a difference,..

Re: Heathrow-Krakow on British Airways 5 September 2016

There were LOT flights operating to and from KRK, I just didn't see the aircraft. I heard the flights being called but the viewing was bad and I only saw the aircraft which I photographed from our plane. I paid to reserve our seats on BA months in advance as I wanted a window seat and knew I wouldn'...

Re: Heathrow-Krakow on British Airways 5 September 2016

Thanks for your comments Andre. To answer your questions - I would say the load factor was 100%. The KRK route is very popular and BA is the only full service carrier operating on the route from Britain. The inflight snack we had was included in the price. BA has a basic free snack included in the f...

Re: Heathrow-Krakow on British Airways 5 September 2016

I liked Krakow, once the weather improved it was sunny all the time and I took more than 600 photos, more than I've ever taken on holiday before. I'd like to see more of Poland, including Warsaw. As Krakow is in the south it is not so well placed for getting to other cities easily. We drunk some Pol...

Heathrow-Krakow on British Airways 5 September 2016

This year we decided to have a holiday in Krakow, after finding out that British Airways had convenient flight times to KRK from Heathrow. This would be our first trip to Poland, and the first time we had flown from LHR, or with BA, since 2006 when our bags didn't accompany us! Our travel to LHR was...

Re: Atlantic Crossings (by plane)

My first trip across the Atlantic was in 1975 - LHR-JFK - one way as we cruised back to Southampton on the QE2. The date was 22nd September and our aircraft was G-BBPU. My other Atlantic crossings have been: LHR-LAX on Air New Zealand 747-400, September 1995. LAX-LHR on Air New Zealand 744 in Septem...

Re: Brussels Airlines - BUD/BRU - A319 - blight&relax- FEB2015

Did you have the map display on the screen during your flight? I last flew on "K" in 2005 from BRU-BHX and we had the map display on, that is the last time I saw it on any of our Belgian airline flights.

Re: Swiss CS100 MAN-ZRH in J with bonus go around! (with photos, full length video)

Those who think that BRU is a horrible airport, have a look at the video. MAN is an overcrowded airport; multiple, cramped areas linked to each other; departure check-in area, arrivals and security check area with absolutely no daylight; long walks with several steps; most gates with no jet bridge;...

I only ever booked Euro"star" travel once - that was in 2009. That was the only time we ever lost a holiday. We were going to spend Christmas in Oostende but the Euro"star" trains broke down because snow landed on them in France. We said we would never book on it again. My sole experience of Euro"st...

Re: *NEW CABIN* Ryanair FR 164 Berlin SXF to Brussels - Boeing 737-800 - Flight report

On the subject of approaches, LCY is also very nice, and SYD. Don't forget LHR! I've not experienced LHR on approach since 2006. on a cloudy, overcast day so we couldn't see much. Maybe we'll have better luck with that approach in September. MAN has a nice approach in good weather, largely over the...
