Story: Tier Point Run to Hawaii in Nov 2022
Tags: BUD | Budapest | Heathrow | Hilton | HNL | Honolulu | JFK | LAX | LHR | London | Los Angeles | New York | Trips | Waikiki
Another enjoyable, albeit tiring trip earning Tier Points. This is a quick summary of highlights and lowlights.
Photos from Day 6.
I picked up Vick's car without too many challenges and headed out of the car park. It was after 9pm so I expected it to be fairly quiet on the roads.
The transfer arrangements seemed a little odd at BUD. I went direct to the scanners that you can see on the right hand side. I had to stir the team of three into action.
Once through passport control, I took the lift up 1 level to the Arrivals Lounge which is the best place to get a shower. I definitely needed to freshen up.
After asking for a printed boarding card for my two BA flights back to Heathrow, then on to Budapest, I headed through to Fasttrack Security which was a farce as normal.
So my decision to head to TBIT turned into a bit of a nightmare to be honest. Starbucks at TBIT is normally disorganised with a very long queue.
My Uber arrived - it was a comfortable Toyota Land Cruiser, with a brand new driver to the Uber game.
