If you time it just right so you fall asleep at landing and wake up as the wheels hit the tarmac it’s perfect. Like someone invented teleportation.

This is the view from the departures lounge at Heathrow

Struggling to see even a tiny bit of runway

Dispair in the departure lounge

Conversely, my trip today.

Leave house at 07:00.
Cycle 19 minutes to Basel airport.
Clear view of the runways from the lounge.

Take off at 08:07 (three minutes early)
Arrive at Berlin Brandenburg at 09:30 (twenty minutes early)

Just came back to Edinburgh via Dublin from Toronto.

Observations:

YYZ has a Rush themed bar. Which I missed as I was at the other terminal.

Had a two hour layover at DUB and was hungry. Bought 2 x ‘Croque Monsieurs’ (basically 2 pieces of bread, a slice of ham with toasted cheese on top, badly reheated) and 2 small bottles of juice for £27.50 (sterling). FFS.

EDI is a shithole now - grubby corridors, unclean toilets, badly organised and zero groundstaff. £5.00 just to drop off or meet someone. Last time I flew into there (last month), the pilots had to escort passengers off the plane and across the tarmac as there was no one else available. Avoid.

Sounds like you got the perfect Dublin Airport experience. Massive kip of an airport.

Going to be flying from Heathrow Terminal 3 in just over 2 weeks and I’m already planning my breakfast.

Last one for a while

It might be dark but there’s clearly a massive plane blocking the view of the runway

I’ve been in the damn airport for too long now
