I shall continue my journey (final destination:CPH) here. For those who have missed out the first leg of the journey, feel free to read it - Malaysian Hospitality 602 & 4 (SIN-KUL-LHR) (by moosecamel88 Nov 15 2011 in Trip Reports).
The initial plan was to spend a few days in London before making my way up north to Manchester. However, when I heard about the riots breaking out across England, I thought it would be much safer to cancel this plan and to fly to MAN from LHR.
This is my 7th trip report and my 1st on British Airways.
The last time I flew BA (SIN-LHR-BCN) was 3 years ago and I was pretty much impressed with their inflight service, although it was still nowhere near Asian or Middle-Eastern carriers. Nonetheless, I was excited as this was going to be my first domestic flight in the UK. Since I was taking the first flight out of LHR to MAN, I decided to spend the night at the airport.
As I was still exhausted from the previous day's journey, I didn't do much exploring at the airside. Instead, I sat myself down comfortably and watched the world go by.
Scheduled Departure: 0745
Scheduled Arrival: 0840
Upon entering the plane, I was greeted by a cheerful cabin crew. As I made my way down the aisle, I was once again greeted by the rest of the crew. I thought to myself, "Hmmm, a very friendly and enthusiastic crew indeed!"
I settled down into my seat and started snapping away. haha!
Inflight service commenced once we were airborne. I was glad to know that BA doesn't charge passengers for food and drinks on board their flights! I was impressed with the crew as they attended to passengers with genuine smiles. Now, that's something airlines should work on.
And right after that, my camera battery went flat! Now, tt's the worst thing that can happen when you travel! grrrr! The remaining time was pretty much uneventful. I just spent my time staring out of the window! And very soon, we landed in MAN.
I made my way to my aunt's place in Darwen. Here are some pictures of the area near her house.
