We had two relatively easy flights to get to Cairo. Houston to London on the big 777 up in the front cabin. Now that’s an experience I’d like to repeat again and again! I had lobster over sea bass for dinner--we kind of forgot that we were in a plane since it was more like being in a fine dining establishment! The lay flat beds were excellent and we were able to relax if not enter into REM sleep. I think it was well worth cashing in our long-saved frequent flyer miles.
At Heathrow in London, we visited the Business Lounge which was very nice with super comfortable chairs, lots of free food and drinks available. The airport itself was not attractive and in need of a redo. The departure gate was very far away from the lounge so I got a wheelchair escort. Our bmi flight to Cairo was delayed on the tarmac for 45 minutes but again being in the big seat was a plus--lots of room to stretch out.
