Tier Point Run to San Francisco in Jan 2022: Day 4 – Los Angeles LAX to New York JFK
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

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.
