The First Lounge was fairly busy – about as busy as I remember it pre-covid. On entering the CCR, I didn’t need to show my CCR card, so that was available from a scan of my boarding pass. The CCR has been spruced up a little with new, slightly more modern furniture. Again, it felt […]

Preparations Nice quiet day today ahead of the start of my first trip in 18 months or so. Not flying until late in the day, but decided to take the day off to avoid any last-minute stress and to make sure I’ve got everything in order, including all of the covid testing procedures. I took […]
