Another flight report by the same author :

CX254 from LHR-HKG on the 25th of June, 2007.

Due to some personal reasons, I had to change my flight to this CX254. I was originally on the 22nd June CX256 (A340-600) flight home.

Flight Information
Date: 25 June 2007
Route: LHR-HKG
Flight Number: CX254
Aircraft: A340-300
Registration: B-HXN
Block Time: 1146
POB(crew/pax): 15/220
Distance Travelled: 5600nm
ZFW: 160T
Fuel on Board: 92T

Check-in at Heathrow was smooth, hardly anybody there...
Wanting to get a free upgrade, but obviously, I didnt get one.

After check-in, went to security, and its busy as hell as usual.
Took a shocking 45-60 mins to get through everything, you even had to take your shoes off for sercurity measures. Rolling Eyes JOKES.

Saw this new Lamby at T3 lounge.. wished I had one!










Most of you who have read my reports probably know that everytime I fly, I eat like mad. So u know, these characteristic of me doesn't change that easily..
Therefore, as soon as I went in.. I made myself a cup noodles, got some dim sum too. Wink







Although the J Lounge at LHR wasn't that big, but it's comfortable, it wasn't noisy, I guess coz Im on the last flight (CX254), less people are crowed in there.





Departure Information
Airport: EGLL/LHR
Parking Bay: 328
Runway: 27R
SID: BPK6F
V1: 134
Vr: 145
V2: 155

Flight Plan
EGLL..BPK.UM185.CLN.UL620.TULIP.UY12.SPY.UN873.JUIST.UP729.TALSA.UP730.CDA.UM611.MALIV.UP862.LIMAK.G59.GR.R30.KTL.R22.BUKET.R22.ZJ.B200.KD.A575.UNWW.B330.NIGOR.B330.MORIT.B330.POU.R473.SIERA..VHHH/1146

Here it is.. the ex-SQ A343.. an old friend of mine.. it operated my last year's flight CX254 too.
Although im not really a big fan of her, but still.. she does the job. What more can I ask for.





Dinner came, its beef with rice. It was nice, the beef was nicely cooked. I finished it within seconds. And most of you probably know that I sleep a lot in flights too...









What does that mean, its time for breakfast...
Since the popularity of the good old Dim Sum with fried noodles is so high.. It ran out before I got served.
I had no choice but to have the Egg Roll. Its not that bad actually.. I guess I was hungry..



Arrival Information
Airport: VHHH/HKG
Alternate: VMMC/MCU
Runway: 25R
STAR: SIERA2B
Vapproach: 136
VLS: 131
Landing Weight: 170T
Total Fuel Burnt: 80T
Parking Bay: W71

Ah, Breakfast's over, I was over Macau already. Here, that's VMMC!

















Alright then, Ive packed at the gate, 71. And next to me was a Tiny China Eastern.

It seems London Heathrow International Airport is a bit too crowded and a bit messy especially the first images.

Hey that was cool man. Recently did the same flight although it was on an Air New Zealand 747-400 then straight onto Auckland. Those shots of LHR show really well just how crowded it is. HKG seemed so peaceful in comparison when we landed but it was still busy.

I gotta say except for the seafood breakfast the food didnt look great- I think I ate better on my flight.

Nice TRs, hopefully T5 will really take the pressures of Heathrow and turn into another T1, T2, T3.

However, HKSkyline, I hope you DO have the permission from those people you took the TRs from. Just acknowledging them is not totally right.

Per copyright rules, there is no problem sourcing other people's work, just as any other research report with proper referencing; I've discussed with the sourcers what I do long ago.

What I do find is a bigger problem is the number of REDUNDANT threads in this section. I don't see the purpose of opening a thread on the same topic when there is an existing one avaialble. We should all do our part and reduce the amount of clutter in the forum.

今次再選乘VS,感受到VS是一間以客為尊的公司,很努力改善自己的服務。上次最失望的膳食,今次有明顯的改進,選擇多了,味道也好了……可能是因為早前「最佳投訴信」一事後,VS花了不少心機改善膳食問題。今次的機艙服務員中華籍與外籍各佔一半,他們服務態度都很好,幾位香港籍服務員尤其使我驚喜,他們無論對任何國籍乘客都很有禮貌,實屬難得(這只是個人意見)。唯一有點尾中不足的是機艙設施保養問題,這部G-VSHY投入服務已第七個年頭,兩個多月前坐它時已感到它有點殘,座椅有不少破損,今次我想用42K座位的娛樂系統時發現它沒有聲,結果我還是回到 42H看電影……希望VS可以在機艙保修方面再下多一點功夫。
整體而言我對今次航程很滿意,VS也成了我LHR直航HKG的首選。期待回英國的旅程!
