Abu Dhabi bound, BA Club and Simon Hackett Shiraz – RogVLOG – 5

Have a look at this episode of RogVLOG. Join me on a British Airways flight to Abu Dhabi.

Our first time travelling on the brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Have a look at the BA Club World Cabin from the rear facing middle seat.

And discover a delicious red Shiraz wine from the fabulously named “Simon Hackett” label.

It’s the first of three Vlogs from Abu Dhabi – check in soon for an amazing trip to Ferrari World and the fastest roller coaster on the planet.

Now it’s your turn:

Over the years I’ve picked up some great travel tips. How to collect air miles quickly and cash them in for business class flights. The best seating options. Which credit cards to go for. Which airline loyalty schemes give the most freebies.

What’s your best travel tip?

British Airways First Class Heathrow to Dubai Video Trip Report

First Class air travel is a very expensive luxury.

Fine if your company is paying for it, your name is Simon Cowell or Victoria Beckham, but for most of us, is usually reserved for honeymoon treats or lottery wins,

In my earlier blog  “Why I am in debt to frequent flyer websites” I explained how I had learned how to earn enough airline points to travel in big seats for just the cost of the tax as opposed to the very high fares.

So here’s a video trip report of a First Class flight from London Heathrow to Dubai.

Now it’s your turn:

What did you think of my British Airways First Class Heathrow to Dubai trip report video. Please leave a comment or share with anyone you think might enjoy the film.

Have you flown on the new British Airways A380 Super Jumbo yet?

I have. I was lucky enough to bag some Avios (BA’s air miles) seats to LAX two days after the inaugural flight. What an amazing plane; so huge but so quiet.

I’ll be posting a trip report and video very shortly and that will complete my occasional look at the build and launch of BA’s first A380 which I started over a year ago.

In this next to the last post – here is BA’s own video tour of this remarkable aircraft.

Or if you prefer the longer 10 minute tour click here.

If you want to read the earlier posts here are the links.

Now it’s your turn: What did you think of this video tour of the British Airways A380 Super Jumbo? Have you flown on the BA A380? I would love to hear your stories. Please post a comment below or share a link to your own reviews. And look out my video trip report coming very soon.

The First British Airways Airbus A380 Take Off Video

Continuing my occasional look at the building of the first British Airways Airbus A380, we are getting close to delivery day. It’s been interesting to see this huge aircraft’s construction over the last year.

And now here the first British Airways Airbus A380 take off video.

I still don’t think that the A380 has the grace of the Boeing 747 Jumbo – but it is undoubtedly a magnificent site to see it soaring up into the sky. Or should that be “lumbering”?

Your turn: Have you flown in an A380? I’d love to hear your stories and experiences. Please leave a comment below or post a link to your own blog.
