I'll keep thing short here,since I forgot to take my watch(I only wear it when I fly! and I forgot it!)there are no flight times.
A319-131 - G-EUPJ - 6A
Flight left and arrive more or less on time
Easy check-in as i'd done it via phone the previous day,just show id and have boarding passes printed.
Through security,no problem and straight to the BA Terrace.This is huge,on 2 levels and is a great place to spend a few hours.Snacks,sandwiches,booze of all kings and of course Tea,coffee and lots of books,papers and.....Free Internet - guess where I went prior to boarding.
Boarding took place via gate 46.
The flight was 100% full.
Takeoff was from 27R.
The morning Deli breakfast snack was a Melted Cheese and Ham Baggette - very nice indeed!
We landed on-time but had to wait for our gate to free up - the Easyjet flight running late!

Errr...you had to wait for a gate at NCL for EZY to leave....did you use the airbridge on the domestic side, as that is used usually only for BA to LHR flights, EZY just use normal gates without a jetbridge...
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

I assumed the one jetbridge was for BA only,however an Easyjet plane was on the stand in the morning when when arrived.The pilot also stated than we had to wait due to a plane on our stand.
I've flown both types many times,but prefer the Airbus.The Airbus,even though it not that much wider than the 737 just feels so much bigger and roomier.I find the ride is nice and smooth.I'd take the 319 over a 737 any time.
According to BA's web site they us a mix of A319,A320,734 and 752 from LHR.
