Episode 7 – the final leg

The final leg of our trip was back to Dublin to finish our ticket, and then part ways to fly home separately.

We took the Heathrow Express back to the airport and used North Fast Track security – through in moments. We made our way, via Starbucks of course, to the South Lounge and were there for an hour before the call for boarding was made.

The flight was uneventful. My vegetarian breakfast had been loaded as requested and it was tasty.

A couple of cups of coffee and we were soon on the ground. We could have just waited around at the gate area for our final flights, but seeing as we had time, we wandered through flight connections and back to the lounge.

I was able to guest MummyAirmiles in – not sure if this was standard procedure, but it was welcome nonetheless. The lounge is very small, but it is very good. I think it is even better than when I was there last year on my way to Las Vegas.

With about 40 minutes to go, we left and headed to our gates which were side by side. We said goodbye and I was able to see her walking across the tarmac as I did.

I was flying in economy on this leg as I didn’t feel the need to splash our double Avios for such a short flight in Club. As a Silver, I was able to select the exit row for free. In the end, there was no-one in the middle seat, so I actually ended up with more space than I had on the way out.

The final post in this short series will be a comparison of our highlights and favourites.
