Where Is / Was Your First Flight This YearBack to Forum
Anonymous1 Feb 2014
Something for the weekend! I’ve just booked my first flight of the year, LH CPT JNB FRA NYC MUC CPT. I got a great fare in F and am really looking forward to trying out F on the 380. However, the fare means I cannot stopover (apart from plane change) so total travel time will be roughly 30 hours each way. That will be the longest trip I’ve made since the 80’s when AMS SIN was just 24 hours!
Anyone else making their first trip this year and where to? Or where was your first trip if already done?1 Feb 2014
My first ‘trip’ of the year (if you can call it that) was far more prosaic – GLA – LGW (train) LHR – GLA……..
This week will set off on GLA-LHR-KUL-BNE-MEL-DXB-MEL-BNE-KUL-LHR-GLA but there are goodly breaks in BNE (twice) and DXB.1 Feb 2014
My first trip was far less exciting: GVA – DUB – GVA, via CDG (had expiring BlueBiz points to use)… But as written on another thread, this gave me the opportunity to discover the great Belfast city!1 Feb 2014
First trip of 2014 was. LHR-AMS-LHR-MIA-MCO (awarded Trusted Traveller status) – LGW-AMS-LGW-First Capital Connect home…
…and very enjoyable it was too…
Edit – above was my third trip, forgot about LHR-FRA-LHR on 2/3 and 8/9 Jan…. those were also very enjoyable too… 🙂1 Feb 2014
Some exciting itineries there. I said to myself this will be the year I’ll stay longer to see the area when I travel. Not just the hotel and meeting place. This resolution already broken. I’m in NY for 48 hours and travelling for 60!!!1 Feb 2014
An unexpected flight, which was sadly for a funeral from LHR to BHD.
Now in AUH for a great long weekend of sun and warmth and great BA First service to start it all!1 Feb 2014
First trip was ZRH-AMS on 2nd Jan for the year-end stock take, and then ZRH-ZAG on 5th for part two… Both trips in economy.
…but looking forward to FRA-BKK-SYD in F on Thai next week1 Feb 2014
The first was LHR-CPH-PRG-VIE-KIV-VIE-LIS-CPH-LHR – and that was all in eight days.
The next was LCY-GVA-IST-ALA-IST-LHR – eight days again.
The present trip LHR-TXL and return is tame by comparison.1 Feb 2014
