Don’t get me wrong, I always enjoy international travel in premium cabins, but at the same time the more you fly, the more the novelty wears off. Nowadays most of my international travel is in first class, so business class isn’t usually anything to get excited over…. except for my upcoming trip!
Tomorrow night I’ll be flying British Airways’ new Club World London City service into London City Airport. What’s so exciting about it? Well, I’ll be crossing the ocean in an Airbus 318 with only 32 business class seats. What makes this especially exciting for me, as an airplane geek, are the flight numbers. The two Club World London City flights operating between New York JFK and London City are BA002 and BA004, while the flights from London City to New York JFK are BA001 and BA003. Yes, those are the same flight numbers that British Airways used for the Concorde. And for me there’s just something really exciting about that.
Beyond that I’ve never been to London before, so I’m thrilled to be able to spend a couple of days exploring a new city. And to top it all off, it looks like I’m bringing Florida weather with me, with temperatures well above 50F and no rain in the forecast. You’re welcome, London. 😉
