Check in was conducted electronically the day before, with a supposed exit row seat of 9F selected. Bags were dropped at the check in counters.
Security was busy through the premium zone, taking around 15 minutes to clear. It didn’t help that people didn’t know how the system worked to load trays and send them through (rather than line up and push).
With an expected gate of A10 allocated, it was easier to switch to Galleries North than use South.
Boarding was by bus from Gate A10d, with full buses being used.
It’s an Airbus A321neo – G-NEOT
Seating at front of the aircraft uses Collins Aerospace Pinnacle seats. In the rear, they use the Recaro SL3510. Seats had power and usb charging points
The trays in Club Europe are also removed.
IFE and Connectivity
None installed on this new Airbus A321neo.
Buy-on-board catering was offered through the Marks & Spenser’s catering offering.
Arrivals were handled with the plane being connected to both a jet bridge for forward disembarkation, as well as airstairs for the rear of the plane.
The full review of British Airways 762 is coming soon!
