So that was a five day adventure that turned into the usual chaos. But then as regualr readers will know, chaos and me are good friends.
So much so, some days I should just get a legal partnership with chaos and be done with it.
British Airways Short Haul
The crews were great, but there’s an undercurrent of unhappiness aboard… and you can bet your bottom note its going to surface as British Airways moves to Buy on Board. A shame, because the crews aren’t the problem with BA most of the time – it’s the management.
Iberia Long Haul
It’s a comprehensive product, but sometimes the service felt so robotic, it wasn’t great. Additionally, they really need to pay attention to call bells. It’s helpful if you don’t want to suffer dehydration….
American Airlines Long Haul with an A330
With a half empty plane, it was impossible not to enjoy this flight. Reasonable catering and A330 comfort is difficult to beat across the pond.
British Airways CityFlyer
British Airways CityFlyer seems to be the star of the BA fleet as always – with a crew who operate tightly in limited time to serve a plane loaded of passengers. Always friendly, always welcoming… it’s why I like CityFlyer.
The Radisson O’Hare
Another useful crashpad for me in the O’Hare region. And if you’re passing through O’Hare, the more crashpads you can find that are reasonable value, the better in my book.
The Hyatt Regency O’Hare
The Hyatt Regency O’Hare continues to be a solid choice for those who spend time in the O’Hare area – with decent beds, amenities and catering. Small improvements at a time help to deliver product… and the Hyatt is doing that. One step at a time.
There was a hidden test – in plain sight.
Can oneworld function for you when you mix a lot of partner airlines together?
I mixed BA, Iberia and American Airlines in… and amazingly – everything seemed to work on a single itinerary, with lounge access and luggage arriving and transferred successfully.
And sometimes, when travelling, you will need everything to work. Even complex iteneraries such as as I the one I have present a challenge when it comes to codeshares and interlinine
One thing at a time – but it seems for me… and for once… OneWorld functioned around me for once.
Sometimes, life throws plesant surprises. This is one of them.
That brings us to the end of “There’s gotta be a oneworld way“.
Coming up: Next, it was going to be Mr Kevincm goes to get some BAcon. However, it is coming up to Christmas… and its time for something a little seasonal. Join me for “Tallinn Tier Points” featuring Finnair… and this aircraft:
