This is my another British Airways flight. This time from Berlin Tegel (TXL) to London Heathrow (LHR) Terminal 5. It was my first flight from Berlin Tegel airport and I was surprised with the check-in procedure. I headed straight to departure gate where there was check-in, passport control and security – all in one place. After the security the was no shopping area – just one booth selling snacks and drinks. Really bizarre if we take into account the fact that Berlin is one of the biggest European capital city. The flight was delayed by over one and a half hour due to technical issue with a sensor. First the pilots rebooted the aircraft with no effect and I think they found out that the sensor needed to be cleaned. Very nice view of the London City Centre before the landing.
