- My calf muscles hurt…
A mixture of a lot of walking, a lot of standing and pounding trade shows means one thing: my calf muscles needed a long soak in the bath once I got home and unwound.
It proves I need to walk more and be a bit more fitter I suspect.
Let’s pull together some of these experiences into a single lines and maybe make some sense of this all.
The Cathay Pacific Lounge – Sublime and one of the best lounges at Heathrow Airport.
The American Airlines Admirals Club – Improving, and that’s a good thing
American Airlines AA47 with a 787 – Not bad, but economy seating is still tight. And those electronic dimmable windows still don’t sit well with me.
The Intercontinental Chicago – It’s different from my normal digs, but has an unbeatable downtown location.
The Hyatt Regency O’Hare – Improving step by step.
The British Airways Chicago O’Hare Terraces Lounge – Glorified waiting room. Next.
British Airways BA294 in World Traveller Plus – Passable, but work is needed.
British Airways Shorthaul Club Europe – Requires a LOT more work to be worthy of the name “Business Class”.
IBIS Budget Hamburg St Pauli – Basic, but improving, and new beds too.
Right – that’s it for this trip report. It’s ran on longer that I would normally want to write, but you know the rules for trip reports – these are now very much “long haul” and covers subjects in depth – something I can’t do in a quick 10 image/300 word snapshot.
Plus I like to try to tell a story occasionally that doesn’t involve planes or hotels. Sometimes I like to go on a tangent that you might not think of – and consider next time when
Up Next: I’m heading off to Ireland for the day to be a pain. Or take photos. Or hang out with Irish #avgeeks. Or get a new Guinness mug for the office.
The truth as usual is somewhere in the middle.
Please join me in TurboFan vs TurboProp – A day trip to Dublin Airport with Aer Lingus, as I play with Aer Lingus for the day and try out the passenger experience in both an Airbus A320 and an Aer Lingus (operated by Stobart Air) ATR72-500.
Until then… thank you for reading.
