A busy Saturday morning flight down to the beautiful Austrian capital of Vienna! Flight was fairly full, not many empty seats around. Vienna is one of only a handful of BA destinations that do not operate from Terminal 5 due to capacity issues, so we departed from Terminal 3, which actually made quite a pleasant change from the usual T5 routine. We pushed back bang on time and taxied towards Heathrow’s northerly runway, RWY27R. Not too much around at that time, so very short wait for take off before climbing up and through the low morning cloud and turning left to take us back round on ourselves towards the continent. Great views over Heathrow and the impressive line up of BA flights side by side at T5!

  1. Another wonderful video from you "RachaelMatt" am I seeing things correct! at 10.40 there seems to be a BA Plane on the grass!!!

  2. Is it just me, or do BA's new Europe Economy Class seats resemble Air France's new seats? It's the same leather, just that AF's seem to have a thinner headrest. Do BA's Y seats recline?

  3. What a wonderful example you are! You always focus on the positives of the experience. You even apologize for any noise which might annoy your Youtube travelers. You do your best not to offend the airline or fellow passengers yourself. I wonder if some of your viewers might like you to add your airport terminal experiences as well so they get the full flavour of the trip.
