My flight to JFK left from Gate 46B in the heart of the T4 bubble at the end of the pier.  I was treated to the Concierge Key treatment at the gate when a petite Asian woman held a tablet up with my name on it.  She told me I could pre-board ahead of group 1.  On this flight there were no CK members and BA GGL members were selected to pre-board instead.  Anyway, it was good to revel in the star treatment.  Again, better than anything that BA does for me!

Flight: BA4327 Equip: A321-T
Sched Depart: 11:00 Actual: 10:51
Sched Arrival: 19:18 Actual: 18:59
Takeoff: 11:06 Landing: 18:46

On board into seat 06F and we pushed back early.  I enjoyed a few glasses of bubbly.  Lunch was decent.  AA seems to be making a much better attempt at delivering a nice salad.  I then had the pasta which was ok – nothing more than that.

I managed to get a bit of shuteye, followed by a bit of onboard entertainment in the form of a movie: Arrival with Amy Adams and Jeremy Remmer.  Classic Sci-Fi movie which didn’t really have a clear objective.  Anyway, kept me entertained for a while.

Close to the end of the flight, the woman that was sat next to me moved up to First Class.  Not sure what I did, but she clearly wanted a change of scenery, or a quick exit.

We arrived into Gate 7 at Terminal 8 and after navigating past a few slow-coaches, I whizzed through to the Air Train and on to Terminal 7 for my flight with BA.
