I booked my tickets ages ago and only had to collect them from Brentford station in the morning. I thought I had the reference number for the tickets and entered the details only to find that that it didn't work. I went to the station master and he couldn't figure it out also. Then I looked further down the email and found another reference number which was collect and got the tickets only for the station master to say that booking early did not make any difference. Point taken for future travel.
As soon as Claire and Tanguy turned up at the airport, we went to the desk and dropped our luggage off. One inside the airport we had to wait for the flight so we had a quick pint and then headed to the terminal to grab the flight.
The flight was very basic for a company like Virgin Atlantic. For a 10 hour flight we only had one main meal and that tasted like plastic and a snack which was a small sandwich. Think everybody was staving when we got to Cuba.
