British Air – Positive
On the positive side, British Air gave us a nice little sandwich and lemon bun on our short 1.5 hour flight.
British Air – Negative
The bad news was they lost our one and almost never before checked-in bag. What a nightmare! They lost people’s luggage who were on our flight waiting to connect. We were lucky to be 5th in line of over a hundred people waiting I have never seen such inefficiently and unorganized. We were there over an hour waiting to fill out our paperwork…I wondered what happened to all the others behind us…are they still there?
Someone said there was unclaimed luggage over by the wall. Pat waited in line and I went over and looked through hundreds of suitcases. Ours wasn’t there. Bags just lying there for the taking, some could have been stolen.
Finally we were told there was a chance our luggage could be on the next flight. We decided to wait another 40 minutes for that and sure enough there it was. YAHOO!!
By now we are worn out and make our way to a bank machine for some euros and our hotel shuttle. The shuttle arrives in minutes. We are staying at the Barcelona Airport Hotel close to the airport . LOVELY!! We have a large room with a King Size bed ,nice and roomy. Our first meal in Spain. We chose an outdoor table on such a beautiful night The waitress brings a few tasty smoked salmon and tuna tapas with our drinks which was a nice touch. We shared grilled veggies and fresh roasted feta, followed by paella. Delicious! We eat at 10PM but we are not on any particular time yet , so it doesn’t matter. The benefit of jet lag.
