Fly the flag with BA from major London airports.

British AirwaysAnother favourite of ours but, with a noticeably older fleet of aircraft, for us they are just pipped at the post by Malev. If your loyalties lie firmly in the UK then this is the choice for you. Service is good with crew being sourced entirely from home. The food has recently been hit by catering staff strikes in the UK forcing them to offer hot deli-style wraps but as the flight is so short (usually under 2 hours 30 minutes) it shouldn’t be enough to irritate. As with most airlines these days price is strictly controlled by availability. The less seats available the higher the price you pay. Booking online is a breeze offering you a choice of fare options around your intended travel dates. They now even offer online check-in which gives you a chance to pick your seats up to 24 hours in advance. Flights from Heathrow and Gatwick for around £100-£150.
