Remarks: First photo uploaded of the interior of the exclusive BA London City Club World cabin featured on the Airbus A318. Cabin features just 32 lie flat seat. The cabin is classy, functional and spohisticated with the use of browns and whites. Also note the blue lighting just below the overhead lockers, a nice touch. A HUGE thankyou to Tom and his Dad for sorting us out this visit to the babybus and to the fantastic BA staff and crew who really took to the time to detail to us the exclusive service they offer and were also very proud of flying this prestigious route.
Remarks: Overview of the southside of LAX showing the Control tower and the iconic 'Theme' building which houses the 'Encounter' restaurant. Also visible is Terminal 4 and a nice line up of Delta 757's at Terminal 5.
Remarks: My first time flying on an Embraer aircraft and I was very impressed with how bright, airy and spacious the cabin was of this jet. Taken onboard BA8717 routing EDI-LCY with just 30 people onboard.
Remarks: easyJet's 200th Aircraft seen arriving onto stand 4 at London Gatwick after delivery from Hamburg Finkenwerder via Toulouse and Paris Orly. The aircraft is in special inverted colours and wears '200' titles to celebrate this milestone in the fleet. Many thanks to the office in LGW for letting us come and view the arrival from the base office. This one is for all my friends and colleagues at easyJet. Here's to the next 100 aircraft! Shame we had to get that Ryanair in the shot!
Remarks: BA1 seen departing City Airport for JFK. BA's A318's are configured with just 32 Club World seats and used exclusivly on the LCY-JFK route. The A318 looks real smart in BA colours, lets hope they order some more for their euro fleet.
Remarks: The newest type in the BA fleet, the 777-300ER. Seen departing on its first revenue flight to Mumbai. This aircraft is the first to feature the new BA World Traveller and World Traveller Plus cabins and a brand new IFE system.
Remarks: Yankee-Delta is the first of several new Embraer 170 & 190 aircraft to be delivered to BA. These aircraft will replace the old Avro RJ fleet. This one is dedicated to the first officer who brought this aircaft in from Frankfurt, who I had a chat with on the dockside.
Remarks: 'Lady Luck' seen here just after departing 09R on her way to LAX as VS23. I had the pleasure of flying 'Lady Luck' from JFK-LHR in February 2009.
Many thanks to Chris Sharps for a brilliant day of shooting and banter, shortly after this shot was taken, my car battery died!
