USA 2012 – Stage 1 – LHR-AMS-LCY

Part of our trip in the USA

So, I have finally got round to doing the promised BA1 report. The reason we are doing this convoluted route is to (a) save money (it is considerably cheaper to fly to New York from Amsterdam via London than simply from London) and (b) it’s a tier point run.

On our flight to AMS we were not greeted by name (not an issue really but it has been commented on here before). Food was sandwich fingers containing salmon (my partner’s were stale), followed by scones, cream and jam. I could remember the correct order in which to apply the sam and cream and to avoid CornishSimon’s wrath I tried both ways. On arriving at AMS we collected our “priority” bags which came off the belt numbers 49 and 65. Stayed overnight at the Hilton there where we were upgraded to an Executive room. At AMS our first bag was given a “transfer at T5” tag until we pointed out that we were flying via LCY. We were the first for her doing this route. On board meal was a ploughman’s lunch: not bad, considering I don’t usually eat salad-type stuff.
