British Ariways B777-200 EWR-LHR

This was my first flight on a triple 7. I was so excited. The plane boarded on time and at first I was amazed that the plane seemed smaller inside then i thought. I took my sea i think in coach row 20. I had an aisle seat. We left on time. It was around an 8pm dep. The flight time was supposed to be around 6:30 hours. Not too bad. Flight took off and we hit some pretty moderate turbulance leaving the NY area. The passed water and orange juice before take off. Then immediatly after take off we were given dinner. I forgot what it was. I popped some sleeping pills and dozed away. While we were in the air over the Atlantic we hit some major turbulance and was getting thrown around a bit. Is this usual? Woke up a little before landing. The seats were pretty comfortable. Good Legroom. Excellent entertainment and service. We decended into London and I saw all of London. We arrived in London on time early in the morning. As were were leaving the plane we walked down the stairs and into the bus to take us to the terminal. THE ENGINES ARE HUGE!. This flight and the next were the only ones with GE90 engines. The other two had RR.

BA LHR-TLV B777-200
About a 10:00pm Departure

We boarded and I had the pretty much same seat. Without delay we took off right away. Uneventful flight. Flight time was around 4:50. Short flight on a 777. We were given dinner and breakfast which is unusual on such a short flight. Landed very smoothly in TLV just as the sun was rising over the holy land. It was a beautiful sight. Another excellent flight by BA.

BA TLV-LHR B777-200
About a 8AM dep.

We boarded and it was a full flight once again. All three flights so far were full. This flight I sat in row 35 i think. Aisle once again. 5:45 flight time. Smooth flight all the way into London.

BA LHR-EWR B777-200
about a 2pm dep

This flight left on time. Very empty so I took a bulkhead seat right behind business class. The 1st class on these jumbo's is very impressive. Very comfortable in bulkhead with unlimited legroom. we smoothly departed out of LHR and headed west. Smooth flight untill about the same place as the 1st flight. We hit hard turbulance again. It lasted about an hour and smoothed out. This was a weird flight. Flight time was around 7:50 but it took 9 hours to land. We hit headwinds of over 120mph over Quebec and from Quebec to EWR it took about 3 hours to get the plane down. We circled over EWR a bit and landed in very foggy and rainy EWR late.

Overall British Airways was incredible. The staff was perfect and flight for the most part were on time. The 777 is an excellent aircraft and looking forward to flying it again soon.
