The warm fig and brie cobbler sounded intriguing and I took a few bites before retiring.

After dinner, the purser offered to convert my seat into a bed. The process included placing a mattress topper the seat in its lie-flat position. Two pillows with luxuriously soft cases were also provided, along with a duvet. For the record, the bed is 6’ 6” long and 35” wide. Since most of my friends were still online, I continued to chat with them while connected to the Wi-Fi service for a few minutes before going to sleep.

Quite surprisingly, I managed to get almost four hours‘ sleep and woke a half hour before arrival. The purser nonetheless offered breakfast but I was still sated from dinner and declined.

We arrived in London a few minutes later than scheduled and I was soon walking to the U.K’s efficient ePassport gates, placing me landside within 20 minutes of deplaning. I headed to the American Airlines Arrivals Lounge and had a latte and a small bite before taking the Heathrow Express to Paddington Station.


As I’ve noted in prior reviews, the most important facet of a relatively short flight, such as crossing the pond, is the time allocated to sleep. Once again, thanks to a very efficient and personable crew, I was able to obtain maximum shuteye and arrived well rested and ready for the challenges of the day.
