Flight from SEATAC to Heathrow

So, we just took off from Seattle-Tacoma (SEATAC) airport on our non-stop British Airways flight to London, England (Heathrow). Let me just say, flying Business Class is pretty sweet!

Check out the pods we can completely lay down flat in!

All the creature comforts such as a ton of movies and TV shows individually on-demand, games, a phone, footrest, and, of course, the 8-way adjustable seat and foot rest.

My seat faces backwards, so my view out the Window during take off from Seattle was very neat.

Here's a (somewhat blurry) side view. As you can see, one seat faces forward while the one next to it faces backwards.

As I write this, we are preparing to be served dinner:

For starters, we have a choice of...

-Duck salad with beet, endive, and a walnut vinaigrette with popcorn shoots.

-An heirloom tomato salad with fresh mozzarella, basil and creamy garlic dressing.

Terrie chose the former and I chose the later. The Duck was served more in the fashion of a pate and was pretty tasty. The mozzarella, cucumber, and tomato salad was very tasty and the garlic sauce was also very good and provided a good blend of flavors.

The main course is a choice of...

-Filet of beaf with black truffle butter, roast potato wedges, and sautéed chanterelles.

-Pan-roasted scallops with warm vinaigrette, saffron potatoes au gratin, and green beans.

-Smoked mozzarella gnocchi with peperonata sauce.

-Chilled main course Indonesian-style chicken salad.

Terrie and I both chose the scallops. These were pleasantly good - not overcooked and evenly seasoned in the vinaigrette sauce. The potatoes au gratin was good but the "gratin" had more of consistency nearer to a scrambled egg versus that of a creamy cheese. Still, good flavor. The green beans were, surprisingly, done just right (remember, this is airline food - even if we're in business class pods) and very well seasoned and a good balance to the potatoes and scallops.

And for desert, the choices are...

-Cherry frangipane with vanilla sauce.

-Sweet Marion blue and Krystal Pure Cheddar.


They will also serve breakfast but I'll leave that for another post.

Ciao for now!
