Was I ever this nervous???
All organised.....for the first time, on time, however it was all a little but surreal as not only the epic nature of the trip took hold but also the events of the last few weeks..........and that is the last I mention of that!! It wasn't until I reached MEL and I climbed on board that beautiful A380 that I really got excited! What an aircraft..............even though it took 2 hours to get the entertainment working it was all worth it in the end, smooth flight, pleasant service, full flight!! but I was lucky to have a spare seat in the middle :-) Sitting on the window was an uncommunicative elderly Englishman but you get that on the big flights.......it only became annoying when he curled up on the spare seat, took all three pillows and constantly farted whilst asleep...........guess you get that on the big flights as well :-)
