Hello once again fellow A.netters.

It s been 3 months since I wrote my first trip report and I am back once again with another one.

Background.

I recently got a chance to fly to london to meet my sister and attend my aunts graduation. This was a big occasion in my family and we were very proud of my aunt. This also meant I would have to escort my grandmother there so this was a new adventure I was looking forward too. Tickets were booked through the British Airways Call center that they have in delhi. My grandmother was booked in the club world cabin ( J class) and I was in the world traveler cabin ( Y class). BA operates 2 daily flights from delhi. We chose the one which leaves early morning at 8 and reaches london by noon. We were carrying 4 pieces of check in luggage and 4 cabin bags with us. ( Yes my grandmom went a little over board with her packing   )

Day of Departure ( 10 July 2012 )

I got up at 5 in the morning to check the status of the flight on flightaware. Turns out our flight was delayed by a little over an hour. So we left for the airport at around 7 15 am for a 9 20 departure. A little over 20 minutes and we were turning into Indira Gandhi International Airport , Terminal 3. For those of you who do not know the international terminal in delhi used to be in pathetic condition till 2010. It was only before the commonwealth games that the government opened a brand new state of the art terminal for the public. After reaching the terminal and unloading the bags on the trolley we were guided inside the terminal and also helped with our bags by a BA representative. This is a good service most airlines provide to business class passengers and I was lucky to avail this without travelling J  .

Check in

I had already done an online check in the previous day to get good seats. Also I had to get seat as close to my grandmoms cabin which was not to difficult. We now only had to drop our bags which we once again did at the business class counter and I must say that the lady behind the desk was very friendly and helpful. So check in was a breeze and we then proceeded towards immigration and security.

After Security.

Security was once again fast and we headed towards the lounge. BA uses the ITC lounge in terminal 3.

We entered the lounge and I found a comfy looking corner for my grandmom , after which I went to get some photos. The lounge overall was sufficient. It had comfortable chairs and a good selection of drinks,beverages and snacks. There was also computers with free WIFI facility. Here are a few snaps of the lounge.

Boarding was announced at 8 30 for the 9 20 flight and and we started walking towards the gate. Because of my grand mothers age she had wheel chair assistance. I could not get a lot of photos of the terminal but here are some of them I got.

Boarding.

We were one of the first few on board the 747 and thus i got time to settle down my grandmom on her seat. I also asked the female F/A who was in the club world cabin to look after my granny. She told me she would look after her like my granny was her own mother. This was a great reply and thus I was relaxed. I also got a chance to get a look at the club world menu. The F/A also offered me some OJ and I gladly accepted.

Boarding was completed by 9:40 Am and we pushed back soon after. I was seated in the emergency exit row seat so I had plenty of leg room. We taxied into the main runway where we were behind the lufthansa A346 which was on its way to Munich. The Rolls Royce engines blasted into action at around 9:50 Am and we were soon racing up the skies. Here are some more photos I was able to take during taxi.

Service Started some 45 minutes into the flight . The F/As were very friendly through out the flight and always served with a smile. It was a very professional approach by the cabin crew. Since I am used to travelling in BA , I can say that there on board service is excellent. The crew is always a delight and it kind of makes your flight less tiring.

The breakfast service began at half past 10 and there was a vegetarian and non vegetarian option. I opted for the vegetarian option and was given a nice chick peas dish which I gobbled down quickly. Here are some pictures of the meal.

IFE

British Airways had a good IFE system on board. It is AVOD and has a decent selection of movies and sitcoms to keep one entertained. They were low on the hindi movie count but that did not really matter to me.

After the first meal service drinks were served and I opted for tomato juice. I was also given a second can just in case.
I read a book for the rest of the flight and soon we were only 2 hours away from our destination. About 1 hour 15 minutes left and we were served our second meal. This time only a small wrap and a muffin.

I had a great trip of course. It was good chilling with my sister , her husband and my aunt of course. And after 2 weeks it was time to return to delhi. We were going back on BA flight 143 which left london at 10:20 Am and reached delhi by half past 11 at night.

Once again it was an easy check in and I got my desired seats. We cleared security at heathrow T5 and headed towards the lounge.The lounge was good with the usual shower facility. It had a work station and a good selection of drinks, beverages. I was a little disappointed wit there food selection though. Compared to the lounges of other european and middle eastern airlines it seemed a little pale. Here are the photos.

Not certain but try splitting the report into different posts.

Good TR so far though, always enjoy reports about BA. Hope I can see the rest soon!

After a certain length the site cuts off the post...if you split it in half (or more) it will show up.

Great report so far...

Planning to head to India (New Delhi) in couple months after almost 13 years. Looking at the pics and the world class looking T3 getting me excited. Surely looks much better than it did on April 23, 2000. Thanks for this amazing journey buddy. Have a good one.

Boarding was announced at 9;30 Am for 10:20 departure. This time instead of a wheel chair ,BA had sent a buggy car. The driver had come to pick us and a few more more passengers from the lounge. He was one of the rudest fellows I have ever seen and he often told all of us to shut up and that we spoke to much and should not disturb him. I dont think any of the passengers appreciated his behavior. Thumbs down BA. This is not the kind of hospitality one expects on the verge of the olympic games.

We reached our gate at around 10 Am and this time around we were one of the last passengers to arrive. I quickly got some photos of the 777. Here they are.

I soon fell asleep after the first meal and woke up just when 2 hours where left for the flight to land. A small snack was served around 1 hour before arrival. Pics.

A strong landing and we had arrived Indira Gandhi International Airport. We then taxied for about 10 minutes before getting to our gate. I got some pictures but they did not come out that great. Apparently my camera does not work too well at night. Here they are.

So too conclude I had another great flight with British Airways. Here are my ratings

I will average out both the sectors and give only one rating.

Check in: 8/10
Lounges:7/10
Aircraft:7/10
Food:7.5/10( Maybe they should increase the quantity)
IFE: 6/10(Good but can do better )
Cabin Crew : 8/10(Efficient and Professional)

Overall: 43.5/60 (Around 73%)

Also Comments and Suggestions appreciated. Please tell me how did you like the photos?

Planning to head to India (New Delhi) in couple months after almost 13 years. Looking at the pics and the world class looking T3 getting me excited. Surely looks much better than it did on April 23, 2000. Thanks for this amazing journey buddy. Have a good one.

Have a look now. Comments much Appreciated!

Menu cards on BA - not bad!

I was travelling economy. My grandmother was business. So the menu card is of the club world cabin , not world traveler. Also I have uploaded the rest of the TR , your thoughts and comments will be well appreciated thanks!!

Quoting planiac787 (Thread starter):
Registration : G-BNLG

I logged this aircraft in 2001, so of by accident. Our MAN-JFK B763 went tech, so BA routed us through LHR. Got seats in the very last row on this 747 for the hop across the pond, and I enjoyed the flight thoroughly. I have a photo, somewhere, of the cabin and the registration placard located near the aft exit door. Glad to see 'NG is doing well - she was in long-term storage in the desert for a while, wasn't sure if she'd ever fly in BA colours again (or fly again, period.)

Thanks for the TR - very interesting!

Yes you are correct. My first impression of the cabin inside was that it was worn down. It was installed with the new first class cabin , but I dont know how long BA will be able to use this bird. Last i checked , it was put in storage again. It last flew from boston to London on 15th july and has not been used ever since.

Ok so I just rechecked and looks like G-BNLG has started flying once again! This is gr8 news. Hopefully it will continue to serve the BA fleet for a long time to come.

Hi

Great report,
Thanks for sharing.
Looks like BA still seems to deliver good service in Y. I like the food portions.
Great spotting pics in LHR and DEL as well

Greetings

Good tr! Although BA hasn't really done much to their Y product since 2007, when I last flew them haha.

Its just good news for indian aviation.. I do not know if you follow air india progress , but the airline is down in the dumps.. So any carrier starting new routes to the country will only work towards the development of the country. So it s pretty good news i feel!
