Well I am now at the British Airways Galleries Club Lounge. I am in the North Lounge, which is smaller than the South Lounge but I really like the views.

Dawn has broken outside and I am waiting for my travelling companions Michelle, Neil and Nicky to arrive.

I passed an uneventful but pleasant night at the Heathrow Sofitel. It is very comfortable and completely silent – amazing given that it is the only airport hotel to have a direct covered walkway to Heathrow Terminal Five.

More to follow.
