We are back from a 'trip of a lifetime' to New York. It started by flying British Airways First Class to New York's JFK.
Using the 'First Wing' again excited me. However, the dedicated First Class security tunnel was closed for upgrading, regarding the lifting of the 100ml liquidity rule. The regular 'Fast Track' was not too bad and I was soon in the BA Concorde Room.
The Concorde Room was quiet and a very enjoyable way to spend a few hours. The BA cheeseburger, with a glass of Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle champagne, was a perfect way to start a very special trip.
First Class on the Plane
Soon after arriving on the plane I had a glass of champagne & warm nuts. Hot towels are back.
The crew were excellent; food, some of the best I have eaten on a plane for years; and drinks choice genuinely First Class.
I spent an outstanding flight watching HBO's 'Succession: Season 4' drinking Johnnie Walker Blue Label & double espressos.
I also managed to get a few hours sleep and was woken with a coffee & orange juice.
Immigration and Customs at JFK were fast & efficient.
Hope my photos evidence why it was a '6 teddies' (🐻🐻🐻🐻🐻🐻) flight. If the dedicated First Class security tunnel had been working in the First Wing, its would have rated '7 teddies'. Tip:- if you wanted a more 'airy experience' in the Concorde Room, there is now a fully functioning dining area on the balcony.
