This year 2016 has proven to be my luckiest year yet as I get to experience new airlines again. During a short business trip to Rome, I was booked on the British Airways from Kuala Lumpur to London to Rome and then from London to Singapore. British Airways, which is a four star airlines is the main flagship carrier of the United Kingdom was established in the year 1972. With its current services, long haul flight by British Airways is currently promoted as World Traveller while short haul inter Euro flight is promoted as Euro traveller. Sounds cool right? Let’s move on to the review and my flight experience.
Kuala Lumpur to London Flight Route
This route is served by the Boeing 787-9 series Dreamliner and actually that’s also my dream come true to experience this much hype new aircraft after the Airbus A380. To start with, the Boeing 787 is the first major commercial airplane built using the mostly composite materials which include composite fuselage and composite wings (Carbon fibre re-inforced polymer).
The in-flight entertainment system of British Airways economy class is jointly developed by Panasonic eX3, Thales i5000 and Rockwell Colins TES with its 8.9 inches personal touch screen, with its noise cancelling surround sound system, usb for charging electronic devices as well as futuristic look joystick and keyboard system. There’s also a electrical socket in each seat for charging laptops or any other electronic devices.
London to Singapore Flight Route
London-Rome (Return Flight)
Well that’s all I could show about my experience flying on British Airways. The long haul flight on the both the Boeing 787 and the 777 were definitely pleasant. After all the hypes and issues about the 787 battery problem on the ANA, Boeing is definitely back with this improved 787-9 series served by the British Airways. The head read was exceptionally ergonomic which provided good rest for me. The entertainment system though futuristic, was insufficient of latest movies and games. The in-flight meal were tasty and delicious especially the caramel.The crew was kind and awesome which completed the journey. Definitely in the near future, I would like to experience flying further with British Airways. Apart from you that, you can enrol into ‘Executive Club’ which is the frequent flyer programme of British Airways to accumulate mileage points. British Airways is also a member of the One World Alliance which is also voted as the best airlines alliance of the year 2015.
