News in brief:
Iberia taking over some British Airways Madrid services this Summer
These will be BA 458 / 459 and 460 / 461.
Whilst flown on an Iberia plane using Iberia cabin crew in Iberia uniform, it seems that standard British Airways food will be served. This now means you three options to fly to Madrid:
Fly BA, get BA
Fly Iberia, get Iberia
Fly BA, get an Iberia plane but BA service!
New film, TV, newspaper and magazine download systems in Terminal 5
Meanwhile, in Terminal 5, the airport is trialling new kiosk that will offer iPhone and iPad users downloads of movies, TV programmes, newspapers and magazines. To quote:
Two Heathrow EntertainMe kiosks offering a mixture of free and paid content will be located at gate level in each of Terminal 5’s satellites as part of the initial trial. Alongside local and international newspapers and magazines, recent movie blockbuster releases and classic titles will also be ready for quick download. Passengers can simply select their content on an interactive screen and pay via ApplePay or with their contactless credit or debit card. Once the passenger has downloaded their content, they will be able to enjoy it during their trip without having to access Wi-Fi or data services.
This seems to be a solution in search of a problem to my mind, but let’s see. You can find out more on the Heathrow website here.
