I thought by myself "That can I also" so here's a short report about a
flight STR-TXL on BA back in 1986 - when I was six years old, by the way.
Searching through old-times photo albums, I even found some pics. So here it

Back in the days of the cold war, German airlines were not allowed to fly
into Berlin, so BA, PA, TW and others were operating those so-called
intra-German shuttle services. This time my parents decided to book us on BA
- and there's no better way to fly than on BA, if you ask me.
Passenger receipt and boarding pass - thanks to my mother for putting them
into the archives:
Stairway to heaven - my father, my brother and I climbing up the rear stairs
of which looks to me like a B737-200. Aaah, the good old Landor-days...
*singing* Soooomewheeere over the GDR...
We landed at TXL after I guess about one hour in the air, maybe a bit
longer, who knows.

Waiting for our baggage to arrive. And waiting. Waiting even longer. So my
brother and I decided to place some of our soft toys on the belt - the other
passengers were not amused:
No pics of the return flight unfortunately (shame on my parents for the lack of
inflight pics ) so this is the end of my report, hope you enjoyed it.
