Flight Review: Air New Zealand – London Heathrow to Hong Kong

Who:  Claire, hubbie & her 2 boys (3yo toddler and 3 mth baby)
What:  NZ 38V London Heathrow to Hong Kong

Departs 9.05pm, arrives 4.10pm the following day in Hong Kong

For the return flight I packed the same stuff as outbound omitting sticker books and toys.  I had husband with me this time for extra help.

Check in at Heathrow Terminal 1 was busy and chaotic.  We had to wait in a long queue to get checked in and told we weren't sitting together by a surly lady at the desk but luckily she took pity on us and sorted it out.

At security I was asked to taste the water in the baby bottle (was not asked this HK side).  Once again, I was able to take my buggy to the gate and it was given back to me as I stepped off the plane in HK which was great.  We were able to board first and once again the Air NZ crew went above and beyond to be friendly and helpful.

I hoped since it was a night flight (and with the help of some cough syrup) that JB would sleep.  Unfortunately he only slept for 4 hours but the baby slept for 10!  Once again the iPad was invaluable.  I will never fly without one!

I would highly recommend Air New Zealand and will definitely fly with them next time I fly to the UK.
