As British Airway’s worked to recover its operations after the IT systems failures a couple weekends ago I headed over to London’s City Airport for a quick hop down to Geneva, the first of three segments to get back to the USA on this particular trip.
The crowds in the airport were slightly larger than usual but that could be attributed as much to it being a Bank Holiday in London as the systems issues, especially since LCY was closed for most of the IT outage window.
I had a little time to kill so I went for a shoulder massage and then a quick snack of something they call a baghel (decidedly NOT a bagel in either the New York nor the Montreal sense of the term) before heading to the gate for boarding.
I love that flights at City Airport are loaded from the ramp. Even with the light drizzle it was great to walk across and into the plane via the rear stairs.
The seats didn’t offer much in the way of legroom, though the large Embraer EJet windows are wonderful.
And, eventually, we descended back through the clouds and into Geneva. A mostly unremarkable trip, just the way I like them.
