Review: Avianca 787-8 Business Class

Review: British Airways business class Club Suites from New York to London

On this occasion, it amused me to miss my connecting flight as I fully expected to. My flight from New York to London arrived on time, but we were directed to a remote stand. That meant we had to wait for buses, then drive all around Heathrow Airport before being...
