Virgin Atlantic 747 Premium Economy (Upper deck!)

Manchester to JFK with the Queen of the Skies, the Boeing 747. Rumour has it that 2019 will be the last full year of 747 operation for Virgin, so this is a wonderful opportunity for me to experience the upper deck in a non-Business product (there’s also a small economy section there too, but PE was just a £100 surcharge return, and you know how it is…).

Delta A220 First Class LGA-DFW

Travelling from New York LGA to DFW, Delta are the first major carrier in the USA to fly these brilliant new aircraft. I’m interested to see how the experience shapes up on a 3h+ long flight. Delta say this flight should include lunch, so let’s see if they can redeem themselves after my previous bad time on the 767!

HiFly (for Norwegian), A340-300 Premium Class

Norwegian are wet-leasing aircraft from several companies this summer to cover shortfalls in their fleet. HiFly’s A340 is one of the more interesting choices. It’s got the old Sri Lankan Airways flatbed product in the business class cabin, which is sold as simply “premium” on this flight. A definite upgrade from Norwegian’s recliner seats in premium!

WDL Aviation Bae-146, Paris Orly to London City

It’s incredible that Bae 146s are still flying, and WDL have a couple of examples which are OLDER THAN ME, having been built in early 1986. So, a real novelty to fly this superb British-built plane, surely one last time. This is operating for BA CityFlyer and I’ve stumped up for Business Class to celebrate what I think will be my last ever flight on this type (I don’t count the re-engined Avro RJs as quite the same aircraft!).

United 757-200 - Chicago to Newark

Yes, another long haul business config on a short route - not sure if I will film this one, but it promises to be a sweet flight of just two hours in good comfort (let’s ignore the fact I’m not a massive fan of the seat and just enjoy the privilege of flying this kind of route on this plane!)
