    20th July:-

    UA958

    ORD-LHR

    B777

    21A

    N771UA

    We disembark the plane and walk to the other gate. The flight is 4:11pm to Heathrow and I buy an ice cream as dessert. The boarding was soon to ready for flight. I almost brought water but no sure can allowed bring on plane. We board the plane sat in 21 rows. The PTV was outdated and never upgrade to the modern like Singapore Airlines, NWA or etc. Itís more legroom but box under the seat. Only 6 hrs to LHR and arrived in the early morning like 5 or 6am. The movie is boring to me cuz I havenít watch it all. After dinner, I went to sleep. The route flew to Greenland and Ireland then finally England. The breakfast was begin and 1 hr to into LHR. There some turbulence from East Coast to Greenland. The plane to approach to Heathrow and it is very morning time and touchdown then taxi to the gate. Itís very long way to park the gate. We disembark the plane and walk to the long gateway to the shuttle bus and go to the gate T1. Now in T1 and sat in the seat to wait for Malaga flight.























    21st July:-

    BA6986 (GB Airways)

    A321

    27F

    G-TTIE

    I went to exchange counter and change the US dollar to British pound. $100 = 40 pound. What the? US currency is very weaker. I went to ate in Caffe Nero to buy mocha and chicken wrap. I went back to seat with my brother and wait for the flight. The gate is in 39 and goes thought the 757 & 767 terminals. Now taken a shuttle bus to the ramp and there is plane to Malaga. The board was so on and get into A321 plane. I sat in 27 rows and there are different classes than Lufthansa. The plane ready to taxi then takeoff. Meanwhile the 2nd engine shutdown in the middle of the ramp the turn on again, resumes taxi. Second time, both engines shutdown and sat in tarmac for 30 minutes delay. The cabin crews gave drinks to pax. I had never seen it before. It been stuck for 30 minutes in tarmac. After delay, both engines turn on and roll for takeoff. Now cursing the Bay of Biscay and the map shown flew to Malaga. The crews serve the foods and I drank tea, coffee, and orange. I went to short sleep. The crew asked for drink and I say ď?Ē then skip away. O_O now the plane to approach into Mediterranean Sea then flew over the town & beach. Now landing to the airport, touchdown the runway and taxi to the gate. We disembarked the plane and took a very long walk to the passport control then cleared to the baggage claim. We got 2 baggages but the golf bag is missing. We tired to search all over the place and no luck to find it. We went to lost luggage claim counter and ask for pick up the golf bag. It left London and wait for receive the claim. It is very uneventful that I canít play golf without my clubs in the course. 3 days later, we got a golf bag that reason the tag went fell out and put a new one. The belt was loose when flew to Chicago and London.























    Overall flights from Seattle to Malaga are okay.

    Do you understand this?

    Vienna-Bangkok-Phuket flight = coming soon
