Across the water on a ‘747 – calling America...
..so it sounds from a well-known song from ELO. In a good two hours of it so far – it goes to New York in the British Airways Club World on Board the Boeing 747.400. My sister and I have just entered the British Airways Galleries First Lounge, Topbonus platinum, thank....
British Airways Galleries First Lounge London Heathrow
The Lounge is huge! My way leads me First to the Breakfast buffet. The selection is really impressive. What to expect is Breakfast, especially a English. I decide, nevertheless, for fresh fruit, two sausages are allowed to. nevertheless, with on the plate :-) A small pivot about the Taittinger champagne Bar, now I'm ready for my third Breakfast. Good food, great view, great atmosphere, so it can travel.
The Lounge has a lot to offer, in addition to excellent Seating, a Whisky corner, a champagne Bar and a very good selection of food and drinks. If it would have allowed the time, then even a Massage at the Elemis Spa would have been there.
But our flight on the display panel changes to “go to Gate” and we will not allow ourselves to be told twice. We need to C in the Concourse and that takes some time. From Lounge to Gate, we will need almost 20 minutes.
British Airways Boeing 747-400 in Club World as BA113 from London to New York (JFK)
It is a great feeling, climbing stairs to the top and take in a very manageable space. Since we are the only passengers, I take the opportunity and ask for the opportunity to take a look in the Cockpit. This is answered in the affirmative, and I am happy. A short talk with the pilot, then I go back to my seat.
I'll take backward space to 64K. In the first Moment, an unusual Seating position, but the seat itself is comfortable and the view of the engine and wing is class. The Club World on the Boeing 747, has gotten a small Update. It is a new lighting and a new IFE was installed. Before the Start, water, orange juice and champagne are offered. I'll take a water.
British Airways Club World Seat
In Club World, the seats offer a high level of comfort on long trips. Through the stepless adjustment can be used to set its most convenient seat position easily and, of course, in a 180° flat bed. For solo travelers, the partition is very useful to have a bit more privacy. Just by the window in the upper deck, the storage possibilities are extremely good. A small drawback is that you do not need to climb, if necessary, on the feet of another passenger, if you are sitting on the aisle and this is sleeping. Unfortunately, the need to be folded, the screens take-off and landing again.
British Airways Club World Service
The cruise altitude is reached, and the Service begins. I start with a Tanqueray Gin and Tonic, because such events one has to trigger eventually. There are pre-packaged almonds.
British Airways Club World – Appetizer
A little later it goes off then also with the lunch. The food settled prior to departure, online ordering, good Service, so you can be sure, be food to get desire fulfilled. Be served three excellent courses, starts with grilled King Prawns on a marinated Avocado with tomato Salsa and salad. I think this is a good white wine, such as the 2012 Cuvaison Chardonnay from the Napa Valley.
British Airways Club World – Hauptspeise
As a main dish, four dishes were available and my choice hit the slow-braised Hertfordshire ox cheeks with vegetables and potatoes. The meat was very tender and relatively juicy. My sister opted for the Garganelli Pasta with pumpkin Caponata and roasted sage.
British Airways Club World – Dessert
Zum Dessert entscheide ich mich trotz mehrfacher Bewerbung durch die Stewardess gegen den Cheesecake. Eine Tasse Kaffee und Eiscreme sollte als Abschluss reichen.
As everything is cleared up, the seat is still in and I make my bed. To New York, there are, unfortunately, only 3.5 hours and I wanted to at least get the benefit of the bed. By the way, the Martian runs.
I can sleep for a good hour. After that, it will represent the time a little of the legs. We take a look at the Snack Bar and in the other Club World on the main deck.
British Airways Club World – Afternoon Tea
In the meantime, we have left the Saint-Lawrence river behind us. To New York is not too far away. As a Snack there is still an Afternoon Tea with sweet and savory delicacies.
Then the country begins the approach, as we fly over Long Island. A great flight is about to end. We dock at the Terminal 7 in JFK. The Terminal is branded on British Airways and will be used for the most part also of them. With us, a Boeing 757 from Opensky and the small A318 from London City to the Terminal stand still.
Unser Bewertung von BA Club World auf dem Weg von London (LHR) nach New York (JFK)
- inflight entertainment
Great seat, great Service, good food. What more could you want? The Club World seat is really good and you can spend a lot of time and, above all, lie comfortably and sleep. Due to the small visual refresh and a new IFE, you can safely choose British Airways for his travels.
