Well me neither, but for my 30th birthday I was tempted to get myself in the business class cabin...and it was a great idea! :)
Since I had so many points already with British Airways, the ticket was really cheap, so it definitely was a must have!
Well after the first annoying fact, like the flight was cancelled in last minute at around 4am...when I was already on my way to Heathrow...everything was perfect!!! :)
At Heathrow airport Terminal 5 everywhere I had to go was Fast Track. Fast lane for the passport check, fast lane for the security checks. Once I was through all the usual things I went to the Lounge area, which is a privileged area for business class ticket holders, or for those who are already in higher tiers in the One World Alliance programme.
Since it's one of the corners of the building, it is really airy and sunny with lot's of comfy chairs, sofas, armchairs filled with busy business men and women!
On my way out I even found magazines for free to take away! I got Harpers Bazaar and an Interior Design paper to take away...but I could have easily picked a few more...I just did not want to carry them to Hamburg and then back!

Alright, finally it was time to board!!!! :)
I was seated in the very first raw! Someone tall I'm sure would have appreciated it much more than me with. The legroom was massive...

- 'Miss De Sentimental'! What would you like to have for breakfast?
Since it was my birthday weekend, I wanted the best from everything and did not want the light version breakfast with light yoghurt and fruits....so I went for the one with cold cuts and champagne! :) As you can see it was a good choice with the parma ham, aubergine, jam, olives, sundried tomatoes, pecorino etc and all of these served in Royal Doulton.
