Airline: British Airways (BA)
Route: London Heathrow (LHR) – New York John F Kennedy (JFK)
Aircraft: Boeing 747-436
Cabin: World Traveller Plus
Approach and landing at New York’s John F Kennedy Airport after the eight hour flight from London Heathrow.
The 747 was in good condition considering it’s age, at nearly 21 years of flying it’s bound to be a little worn but the recent cabin refresh hid most of its scars! The entire aircraft shook and vibrated for a few seconds after rotation, I’d forgotten how powerful the jumbo could be on take off so this took me by surprise. The noise level in the cabin is also much louder than I remembered, a world away from the 787 Dreamliner and near silence of the A380.
