As I’m sure you know by now – since I’ve bored you with saying it like ten times already – New York was simply amazing. I love that city, and each time I go back I fall in love with it just a little bit more. What you may not know is that the flight to The Big Apple was pretty amazing as well, and I have British Airways to thank for that (since they so kindly invited me and sponsored this trip). If you’ve been on a long-distance flight before, you know how uncomfortable it can get: sitting in your seat for about 8 hours or more, trying not to be bored, sick or annoyed is simply not all that fun (trust me, I’ve had my fair share of plane horror experiences). However, when British Airways invites you to fly to New York to test out their Club World London City service, you know it’s going to be good. And it was.
What’s this fancy flight all about, you ask? Club World London City is a business class only service that has just 32 seats on board and is designed to minimise airport travel time. From the moment I knew that a seat on this flight also meant a full-flat bed, an iPad at your disposal, internet throughout the flight and many more delights I was already walking on clouds – dreaming about my first travel experience where I would actually be able to be comfortable and sleep during a flight. If all of this wasn’t lovely enough, British Airways pampered us some more during our airport waiting time. With access to the lounge, where you can eat, drink, relax and get spa treatments I truly didn’t mind the fact that I had some time to kill before the flight (and was already silently weeping thinking about the fact that I wouldn’t have all of this comfort on my next NY-flight, merely a few days later). I’m sure you understand I can’t say anything else but thank you and other positive things about this lovely service – it was truly wonderful (and when I’m rich and have an expensive apartment on the Upper East side, you can bet on it that I’ll be flying with the Club World London City service to New York for those monthly Manhattan getaways – a girl can dream, right?)
