British Airways Galleries
Galleries Lounge where I was given my boarding pass for my London to Cairo flight. Of course, the agent had to check first if I needed visa to Egypt, and which I didn't as I was only transitting. I was also informed that I had access to the Elemis Spa (where I booked a complimentary facial treatment) as well as to the pre-flight dining, all because I was flying in business class 👍
Boarding, Gate 4
Aircraft, Boeing 777
On this flight from JFK to London Heathrow, the aircraft used was a Boeing 777-200.
Cabin, Business Class
Already waiting at my seat was The White Company bedding, headphones and menu card.
Around 10:58pm, newspapers were offered but I declined. Menu card was also handed and I was asked to fill up the breakfast form. Champagnes were also offered although I declined. At 11pm, the captain was on the PA to welcome us onboard and give us some flight information.

We had our take-off at 11:27pm.
Landing forms were also given although I didn't need it as I was only transiting at London Heathrow.
I had ordered only the main course although I was still asked by the flight attendant if I wanted the Caramelised Goat's Cheese and Truffled Celeriac Soup while waiting for the Seared King Prawns although I declined.
The meal was very good especially the tikka masala sauce 😋
I watched a bit of Cars 3 and then went to sleep.
I was actually able to sleep for a few hours and woke up with only 1 hour and 15 minutes left before landing. The flight attendant came to my seat and asked if I wanted my breakfast served and which I agreed to.
My breakfast was also very good and much better than the breakfast items they serve in Turkish Airlines business class. Or maybe it's just me who prefer paninis instead of Turkish breakfast 😉 Unfortunately, the flight attendant forgot to serve the bread (or maybe I wasn't supposed to get one)
Around 10:05am, the captain was back on the PA to give us updated flight info and that we would be landing in 40 minutes. We actually landed at Heathrow at 10:44am and reached our gate 534 ten minutes later.
I really loved the fact that British Airways offers pre-flight dining in the JFK Lounge 👍 I thought the king prawns (meal onboard) were fantastic and the breakfast was also very good. Unfortunately, the footstool behind my seat was a bit annoying everytime it's being used by the other passenger. Also, I noticed that the tray table was not that stable. Otherwise, all went well on this flight and I was able to sleep for a few hours. Overall, it was a very nice flight and with British Airways new business class seats coming next year, I really think they could be a very good airline 😉
