I fly ABZ to MAN/BHX all the time so wanted this to be a bit different – Flybe were £180 return.
However, I’ve booked.
I didn’t think of this, but I’ve booked BA via LHR with 4500 Avios and return on TPE/Scotrail. Gives me a whole day in the office on the Friday as well.
Last time I used Avios ABZ/LHR/MAN I transferred T1 to T5 and got stuck at Immigration with no passport – well, it was a domestic to domestic!
Long story, but I discovered a problem at LHR where it isn’t possible to transfer domestic to domestic T1 to T5 and vv, without going through immigration!
Even LHR Ltd were baffled. I probably should have gone landside I suppose, but I did the right thing by following Flight Connections!
I’ll post a review on my TPE/Scotrail journey home in a few weeks.
