  1. Hi there. Thanks a lot for shooting this video and letting many people think out of the box about Azerbaijan,which is pretty modern,secular and lovely. You are always welcome in my lovely city 🙂 Once again, thanks a billion for such a mesmerizing video 🙂

  2. Heathrow Terminal 4 is cramped unfortunately because of the way it was built. It was designed and built in the 1980's for short-haul business flights. The idea was that the terminal was very long and narrow, so that you could be dropped off outside, check in, go through security, and board the aircraft all in the space of 30 minutes. The departure gates were made for smaller aircraft (like the 737 or BAe 146) and the whole thing was built on one storey. But as soon as it opened in 1986 British Airways demanded sole access to it (and more-or-less got it, due to silent payments being made to Thatcher's government). They immediately started operating short AND long-haul flights from it, basing 747s and even Concorde from there. T4 was never built to handle that sort of capacity. It was made for 100-pax aircraft.

    Now BA have T5 (mostly) and other airlines fill T4. They've widened the airside section a little, but it's still cramped. It's ridiculous really.

  3. Thank you, a very beautiful and well-made video. It gave me a very good idea of what to expect. It looks like a great airline and a very interesting country!

  4. azerbaijan airlines is better than turkish airlines since aze airlines does direct flights from london to baku more expensive yes but worth wasting money stops are more hasel so worth going aze airlines

  5. THE 16 HOURS I WAS ON THE PLANE WITH MY IPAD AND PHONE DYING,I DID NOT KNOW THERE WAS AN OUTLET UNDERNEATH ME. I HAD TO WAIT TO CHAREG MY IPAD AT HOME IN BAKU! WOW! GIVE ME A ROUN DO OF APPLAUSE GUYS!

  6. Thanks Felix for this video! Well I have to say what a pleasant surprise. I've always wanted to take a trip to Azerbaijan and now I think seeing this makes me more likely to go. Surprised how quick the flight time is, I guess I was expecting 6 hours.

  7. Great video. AZAL is an interesting airline to Baku. Do you stay in Baku? Bummer the broken IFE. Meals look yummy and breakfast

  8. You say "the plane is half empty btw" but why not take a more positive look at life and say "you know what, the plane is half full" XD
