Tried & Tested

British Airways

Sam Lewis flies from London Heathrow to Buenos Aires with British Airways

 

Seats: The cabin felt spacious, with high ceilings and a 2-3-2 configuration. There’s a satisfactory seat width of 18.5 inches, a pitch of 38 inches, a winged headrest and power socket plus noise-reducing headphones and amenity kit.

Food & drink: Premium drinks served included Bombay Sapphire gin with Fever Tree tonic, followed by a quaffable Argentinian wine. I tucked into a three-course meal with delicious chocolate dessert. The lady next to me had forgotten to order a veggie meal but one was found for her. Snacks were on offer at the back of the aircraft for those still feeling peckish. Entertainment: A range of films are featured on the touch screen console plus a good range of TV series and documentaries, some destination led.

Service: One particularly convivial crew member, on hearing I had a horse, gave me his old pair of work gloves which he thought would make excellent mucking out utensils. That goes beyond the call of duty in my book.

Overall: Great flight, worth paying a bit more for premium, especially as you can take two 23kg bags in the hold rather than the one you’re allowed in economy.
