Back in Copenhagen - I love this city and the Danes!
What has not been fun was my trip using Easy Jet - nothing wrong with Easy Jet but with the process. I arrived in LHR after a no problem flight on good old AC and had a wonderful shower at the Arrivals Lounge. This is one of the best reasons to be a regular flyer on AC. It was a sanctum of peace and comfort after a night on the plane.
So far so good. Then a bus ride to Stansted. Not bad either. But then entry to hell .... Stansted Airport.
I arrive at 1pm and my flight leaves at 6.25. I cant check in until 4.25. It is a warehouse for people with long lines of frustrated travelers all over the place. I absorbed all this energy and began to feel bad myself. An English Breakfast at the Irish pub and 2 pints served by delightful Poles helped a bit.
The Wifi that I bought for 5 pounds from T Mobile did not work. I ended up hanging about the Easy jet check in area in the hope that they would open my flight early - they did! 90 minutes later I check in. 70 minutes later I get through security. Hell only made OK by meeting Johnnie Moore at the bar inside security. Then we get too involved catching up and notice that our flight is in the closing stage - mad dash to the gate - to have missed the flight after a whole day of hanging around would have been too much.
We made it!
I never thought I would say this - but next time I will go regular and connect at LHR using SAS or BMI. The social cost of Stansted is too high for me.
More on reboot itself later
