Weekend in Bilbao - BA A320 - Photo + Video Report

Sun Mar 26, 2017 4:40 pm

Video Report

Weekend trip to Bilbao - BA468 and BA469 - A320-200 (G-EUUZ/G-EUUU)

Background


Hello A'netters. It's been over 6 weeks since our last trip (To Cambodia) and it was time for a quick weekend break. This time to North of Spain.

We had a spare Avios companion voucher which we wanted to use. Looking at availability and places where we have not been to too much, we picked Spain. Never ventured into northern part of Spain, so decided on booking Bilbao. There was a very good amount of availability and timing suited us too.

8000 Avios points + voucher + £70; 5 minutes later we have our weekend trip to Bilbao done!

This is going to be more of a picture review and I shall try and be succinct. Hope you enjoy it.


As always, Thanks to GCMaps for the map illustrations below:

Once airborne, cabin service started. It seems to be much quicker now, since they have stopped serving the complementary snacks and drinks. All we got was half a glass of tap water :(
