I got up at 06:30am (01:30amUS) to head to the airport. The flight down was quick but our landing was delayed at Heathrow. We also were taken to an international gate instead of a domestic. This left me only 40mins to be bussed back to domestic to then have to walk back to the international gate. Having to disembark from the rear when I was in seat 1 didn't help. Quite a pointless exercise. This was not the only stumbling block of the trip. Just as were we all set to depart from Heathrow, the tug got stuck to the plane. This delayed our departure by over an hour. Thankfully I was sat next to a newly wed Cardiff couple on their honeymoon who were good banter. When we did come to takeoff the girl was extremely nervous about the flight. The flight itself was very smooth & we made up some time. I shared a few drinks with the couple & gave them some advice on places to go during their stay.
When I arrived into New York it was sunny & hot
