New York–New York!!

We arrived at Heathrow Terminal 4 this morning after a cold start from Sussex.  Our Delta flight to New York was to prove a good one.


James (looking at his most exited!) at Terminal 4.

Lunch on the plane turned very “first class” for us when one of the stewards (Phil) brought us Champagne…………..


……… cheers! ………


…….. and cheers again!   …………


……. and a wonderful selection of niceties, together with proper cutlery and glassware.  The other passengers were very put out!


We had to show you a close up!

As we say:  it’s not what you know but who, and a little bit of ‘liaison’ can go a long way.  We had a great flight and lots of laughs with the cabin crew – they were a wonderful bunch.  Later on in the flight we even had a “is there a doctor on board?” announcement when a passenger was take ill – there were three doctors on board actually, so we were all in safe hands if we did but know it.

Landing at JFK Airport it was lashing with rain and we had a pretty bumpy few miles on our approach – we hoped the pilot could see more out of the window than we could.  Taking the ‘Air Train’ from the airport and then the Metro we arrived safely at The Lexington Hotel, very tired, very happy but in need of a cup of tea.

  1. A Happy New Year to you both. I succumbed to the weather and booked a world cruise sector on P&O's Adonia today at very short notice. We leave from Southampton next Tuesday for nearly 4 weeks, ending up with a few days in Dubai, before flying back to Heathrow.
