I was at the opening party for the Stobart Jet Centre at London Southend Airport last night.

The company has done an impressive job with its lounge which is a world away from the sterile (but architecturally impressive) Signature Flight Support terminal at Luton which I reviewed here.

The design features, for example, include a bound copy of the most editions of the Manchester Evening News from 1896:

I first visited Southend Airport last year for an article (here) which I thought might end up being jokey, but I ended up being very impressed by the set up.

The airport is 53 minutes by train from Liverpool Street which means that I can get there from my desk in the HFP office at Moorgate in around 70 minutes, including buying a train ticket.

If you are in the small fraction of HfP readers who use private jets, either personally or corporately, I recommend taking a look at the Stobart Jet Centre.  I liked it.  Thanks to Glyn and Stephen for the invite.

    I experienced improved food in WT on flight to SEA. Can’t see really big difference regarding main dish, but it was nice to see back bottle of water, snacks in Galley and decent second meal. Small sandwich + Toblerone, better than previous high calorie “snack”. Magnum Ice cream were good, double chocolate.

    I don’t think people know about snacks in Galley, didn’t see anyone there.
