This was a new one for me: a TP run to Estonia via Heathrow and Helsinki. This was better value than my normal TP runs to Hawaii, so I doubled up on the excitement by doing a nested TP run.
After getting through passport control, I wander up to the north end of T5 and up the left set of lifts to the fourth floor. Need to remember that the right set of lifts only visit specific floors, excluding floor 4.
After my entertaining encounter with the Hungarian Border Force, I ambled up the escalator and into the lounge for 20 mins.
After another disappointment at the automated passport kiosks at Heathrow T5, I headed up to The First Wing (TFW) to head through to the CCR ahead of my flight to Budapest this afternoon.
It took me about 5 mins to walk from Gate 31 to the Chelsea Lounge in Terminal 8. The lounge dragons welcomed me in. It seemed a lot quieter than it was on my outbound, last Fri.
As it happens, the Starbucks queue at TBIT wasn't long at all. Since they opened the second store further up the concourse, perhaps it has distributed the volume of passengers wanting a Starbucks.
By the time I decided to head to the airport, the rain had finally started to subside. The Uber said that the rain had been really bad on the freeway.
The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service , just before 8am on Sunday 7th December 1941.
