Flying the new British Airways Club Suite
To Madrid and back in 5 hours
The first aircraft to be fitted with the new Club Suite is their brand new Airbus A350 which started flying the Dubai and Toronto routes from 1st September 2019.
Part of the certification process for this new aircraft meant BA flying the A350 to Madrid for a few weeks to train the crew.
I decided to give it a go and flew back to back one evening so my itinerary was:
15.30 - arrive at London Heathrow Terminal 5 First Wing
15.40 - guested into Concorde Room by a friend
16.40 - fly to Madrid
19:40 - forty minutes for duty free shopping and drink in the lounge before boarding the same A350
21.45 - fly back to London
23.30 - arrive home to a wife who couldn’t understand why I would fly to Madrid for a 45 minute stopover.
