Since moving back to Kuwait I am flying less often with BA.  My frequent-flyer card changed from Gold to Silver and this week back to BLUE! Only two days ago!  I know it’s only fair, but it sounds crazy that after all the money I spent with BA over five years, I now have a card that one can get by simply filling in a form 🙂

I have to admit that T5 is wonderful.  You don’t need to have access to a lounge here.  I had to kill three hours.  However,  a nice meal, good coffee (I’m travelling!), a newspaper and a walk around the shops, made it feel much shorter.  The views, from inside the terminal building, of the runways and taxi ways, are the best I’ve seen from many airports.

Now that I fly around the Middle East more than I do around Europe, I have to make a new friend – Emirates.

I already miss BA.

T5 by you.

I’ve flown British Airways for more than ten years.  They have constantly improved their service, systems, food, seats and lounges.  Of course there are problems now and then, and I’ve had my fair share of rows with their staff (the inherently stupid ones), but today I’m writing this from the BA lounge at Heathrow’s new Terminal 5.  Wow…  The furniture, ambiance, size, food, drinks, reading material, service (I could go on for a while)…

Most impressive, I’m sure you’ll agree, is the view.
