Well done Michael, great report! I really like East Coast's First Class - I believe some carriages have been refurbished in leather now. Eastern is the largest operator in Aberdeen where I'm based and I have travelled with them quite a lot - always great crew and comfortable planes (well the SAAB200...Jump to post
This is great!

I love these two reports, love your style! Morrre! lolJump to post
I'm also a 62A fan on the Upper Deck of a 747. I love flying backwards. It felt really strange taking off the first time - almost like we were over-rotating. I've just chosen a backward-facing seat on my next <acronym title="American Airlines (USA)">AA</acronym> 772 <acronym title="London - Heathrow...Jump to post
Fantastic video! Well done and thanks for sharing!
I'm jealous, I ALMOST booked a return from Heathrow on the A350 but glad I didn't since the training flight routes were changed!
Well done on the compensation too - jealous again!
I hate that too!!! I stare them out, but then they like the attention I suppose! GgggrrrrrJump to post
Great video and thumbs up from me too!
Anything I would change? Personally I prefer more interior shots, but that's just me - I watched it all so you're doing something right.
I flew it <acronym title="Los Angeles - International (LAX / KLAX), USA - California">LAX</acronym>/<acronym title="Paris - Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) (CDG / LFPG), France">CDG</acronym> a year ago.

Thanks for the report! Not too long, enough detail for me and an enjoyable read. I love Orlando, still a kid at heart, love Miami Beach as well - you've got me in the mood to head back, I was only there in January. I've just done a couple of TATL on AA77W J class - far superior to <acronym title="Br...Jump to post
Great report! Thanks for sharing. Nice size and easy to read - with some humour too. Well done. (sound like a teacher marking an essay don't I?)Jump to post
Final day onboard today for me and it really is the most beautiful ship. Great decor, furnishings etc, Royal Caribbean have yet again pushed things up a notch on here. Very impressed indeed. I have no clear favourite between this one and Oasis Of The Seas, both equally stunning in their own ways. If...Jump to post
Wow! Stunning, plus it has set my excitement levels at ME<acronym title="Garuda Indonesia">GA</acronym> now since I sail on her this Thursday for a 3 night taster! My favourite ship up to now is actually Oasis - as big as she is and even with the amount of people on board, she is stunning in every w...Jump to post
Max, you almost made me cry, this is such a great trip report! Possibly the best I have read, just great that someone so young can write a report like that - you have many more years of exciting travel ahead of you! Glad you got your window seats sorted out - looks like that group I saw on Expert Fl...Jump to post
Which flight are you looking at? BA272 on March 27, or BA273 on April 5? That's 27th March, but interestingly I've just checked BA273 on 05th April and there is a group of 11 blocked off in 33 and 34 again. This must be you guys. That flight is not as busy looking at the loads - the window seat is 3...Jump to post
I was recently blown away by the United Club in Heathrow Terminal 2. Beautiful lounge, great bar and barmen who made cocktails with finesse, champagne flowed and the food was very good - the chef was hanging around asking what I thought of the food etc. Couldn't fault it. Worst was a horrendous excu...Jump to post
Looking at Expert Flyer the flight is completely full - probably overbooked actually. There are a lot of seats already reserved - most of the front economy cabin - but still a lot left to choose in the rear cabin. It's impossible to say if this is blocked for your group, but there is a group of 11 r...Jump to post
I used to sail with P&O every year going back to 1985 on the Canberra, but got fed up of sailing from Southampton due to the weather and usually 2 or 3 days at sea before you got to the Med - coming home was worse with weather cooling. I'm now a Royal Caribbean/Celebrity convert and always fly t...Jump to post

Definitely No.1, but the views are bad. I often get something to eat and drink and head to the end of the new pier where the <acronym title="Aer Lingus (Ireland)">EI</acronym> flights depart and plane-spot from there - perfect, close views of the runway and there is rarely anyone in the area.

I THINK this may be the craziest trip I've read about! I read a lot about people doing <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> Tier Point runs to Hawaii which is crazy enough, but this one?

Great report, my favourite meal too and with the champagne it is heaven! I've done loads of travelling this year so far and am happy to have a break for about a month, but reading your report has made me want to head off somewhere again.

I don't know if I'm a bigger plane geek or cruise ship geek so this report is perfect for me! Thank you, love your style of writing, you always sound excited, which I do when I'm travelling.

I'm really disappointed that Little Red is stopping, but I am as much to blame as anyone since I've only used it once. I did enjoy it though - I think the crew make it.

If anyone remembers the US tv series "The Love Boat", in the 11th photo down you will see the original Princess ship which was used in that series. It looked large and impressive in the series from what I remember from the 80s - not as impressive now compared to some of the monsters of the seas ther...Jump to post
I've flown Qantas quite a bit and have only good things to say about them. Every crew member I have encountered has been very very friendly and delivered top notch service. Great report - I'm too lazy to write up reports so enjoy them when others take the time and effort to complete them. Keep it up!Jump to post
Great report! Love your enthusiasm! Lucky you to be upgraded!

That has made my mind up about my next city break!
I stopped there on a cruise once and for whatever reason didn't get off the ship that day.
Looks great, thank you
Great report! To my shame I haven't sampled Little Red yet - still gathering up <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> TPs - but have my first trip planned for July.
