So we are on our way! Our driver was on time, which is always a bonus but he must have been pushing 70 and I though he might expire before we got to the airport! He seemed to have a blind spot when it came to spend humps! Anyway arrived safe, quick checkin at the business desk,courtesy of the BA silver card, and off to the worst part of any trip... Security.... Have to say though it was the most pleasant experience I have ever had!!
[Note from Fi: really? The most pleasant experience you have EVER had?]
Ok I rephrase, most pleasant experience I've every had in an airport !
No queue, straight through in 2 mins. Should have been quicker but the security staff all wanted to look at my iPad pro! Apparently in X-ray it looks the same as a normal iPad, no surprises there ;-) . Next stop was the BA lounge courtesy of the afore mentioned silver card, as as I type we are currently enjoying a G&T and very nice scotch. Fi has already checked out the food and described it as school dinners.. Not sure that's what BA were going for by hey ho.
Flight to Johansburg was uneventful, but flying over 10 hours in economy does make you appreciate business class travel so much more!
