At the gate

The boarding was quite organized. There were 2 queues – one for priority and other for economy. BA boarded the priority first, it was a smooth process. Luckily now that Amsterdam has a centralized security there is no need for gate security at the non-schengen terminal.


In-flight experience

Once I boarded, I saw that this 767 (although a wide bodied aircraft) has BA’s european business seats. What a pity. These seats are like economy, and the leg-room is non-existent. I remember once flying their 767 business class from LHR-MAD and that was a fantastic experience. Lie-flat seat and nice dining experience. However, it seems on this short AMS route they have their high-density 767 product.

It was a late-morning flight, and there was some light dining. The food was quite tasty.

The flight was short and fine. The weather outside was fantastic and offered great views of London while landing.

On such a short hop, BA gets the job done. Nothing fancy, but nothing to frown upon either!
