  • British Airways Flight from Heathrow to Melbourne


    Hi Everyone,

    I'm in the process of booking the tickets, and I'm checking the BA site,
    where the flight from HeathRow to Melbourne is a 21:55 hour flight with
    one stop, and I was just wondering, where is this stop made?, can we
    leave the plane and walk around the airport? the city?, and Can anyone
    share their experience in this flight?


    Greetings

    Hiya,

    I've only got experience of Singapore airlines and obviously they stop
    in Singapore but usually I get a couple of hours to wander the airport.
    I have a feeling BA stop in Bangkok.

      Its in Singapore, and you usually get about 2-3 hours, including the
      reboarding time. Long enough to wander round the airport and stretch
      your legs.

        We made that flight last Easter (BA). We stopped at Singapore for only
        50 mins. We went to the relaxation suite for a shower...they don't have
        the voice over with flight times in there to keep the atmosphere
        relaxed...as a result we almost missed our flight....we thought they
        said we had 1hr and 50mins..

        Anyway we went straight through to Melbourne and I found the journey
        very uncomfortable. I'm size 10 and 5' 3" and I found the seats to be
        narrow and they had limited leg room. My hubby also not a large man had
        the same problem. However on a positive note the food was good as was
        the entertainment..and the staff were also great.

          Hi,

          Have taken that flight a number of times with 2 smallies, 4yrs and 6yrs.
          Have always found it a tough journey because of the length of time, but
          in comparison to other airlines, it is made as pleasant as it can be
          with BA. Found Singapore Airlines to be equally good.

          BA to Melbourne usually stops in Singapore. Unless you have a pre
          arranged stop-over there, you usually get about an hour to wander round
          the airport, you cant leave the building. Actual length of time depends
          on how near to scheduled time the overall flight is going. Last time, we
          had barely half an hour in Singapore airport.

          If you have kids, then BA or Singapore Airlines are definately the way
          to go. Came back to UK for visit this Christmas via Japan and Finland,
          two 10 hour flights with no in-flight entertainment led to 2 very bored
          kids and hassled parents despite our valiant efforts to read to them and
          occupy them, don't recommend it...

          Exciting to be flying all that way though regardless,

          all the best

            Probably not relevant to the OP but "if you have at least five
            hours to spare before your connecting flight, you can register
            for a 2-hour sightseeing tour of Singapore where you can choose
            between a Sentosa tour and a bumboat ride. There are 5 tours a
            day at 10am, 1pm, 3pm, 4pm and 5pm. Tour counters open from
            8.30am to 4.25pm, daily for registration on a
            first-come-first-serve basis. Certain conditions apply and
            subject to entry visa requirement stipulated by Immigration &
            Checkpoints Authority."
