The room stinks, the person in the next room is playing Judge Judy at 50 decibels, I’m itchin’. This is (beeps) horrible. (upbeat jazz music) Hey, there! Cheers, thank you! So I am heading to the US and my challenge is to fly to as many cities as I can in a 24-hour period.
I’m really looking forward to this. I’ve got some amazing flights booked, I’ve got some fantastic airlines I’ve not flown with before so let’s go flyin’! (engine purrs) (upbeat music) So I am heading down to London Heathrow Airport tonight on this beautiful summer evening. It’s actually the summer solstice tonight on the 21st of June which means that it’s the longest day of the year here in the UK and the sun isn’t gonna be setting tonight until around about 10 o’clock at night which is about the time I get down to Heathrow tonight. So it’s a bit toward evening.
It’s currently half past eight and we’ve got a gorgeous summer evening now. So I am on my way down to Heathrow.
Tomorrow morning, I’m flying over to Boston, Massachusetts with British Airways on board the Airbus A380. And now I have very kindly been sent by a company called Zendure, their latest battery pack. They basically make battery packs for airlines such as Titan Airways and British Airways and they give them to their pilots on their flight decks to power their iPads for their electronic flight packs.
Really cool use for this little gadget here and they very kindly sent me one to try on this trip today so I’m gonna be using this as my battery pack to keep all of my GoPros and things charged throughout the entire trip.
I’m gonna be seeing how much battery this gets through over the next couple of days. It does come with a really nice little display there, I don’t know whether you can see it, and it tells you how much of the battery is left. It also has a few USB ports and a USB-C, which is quite nice and it’s 26,800 milli-Amp-hour, which is more than my Anker battery, so really interested in seeing how this copes on the next couple days. It’s honestly completely flight-safe as well because they give it to the flight deck crews so I’m looking forward to actually trying this on these next few flights.
(upbeat music) Okay, this is absolutely ridiculous. This hotel here, the Travelodge at Heathrow Airport Terminal, I’ve never stayed here before, I just booked it today because it was a last minute cheap deal. Look at this really tight car park. There isn’t a single space. I have absolutely no idea where I’m gonna park tonight, but you’d think that a hotel would generally have, oh, so I’m trying to negotiate this really tight bend.
You would think that a hotel at this sort of size at Heathrow Airport would have a decent car park. This place is just horrendous! And my car isn’t that big and I’m struggling to get it around here. Look, I left-hand turned here, I’m gonna reverse to get through. This is ridiculous.
Big negative marks for Travelodge, in my opinion. (rapid beeping) And it’s a pay and display as well, which is even more, just takes a nick of it when you pay so much money for a hotel room and then you have to pay again to park your car. It’s daft, look at this! Look at this ridiculously tight..
. (rapid beeping) I’m thinkin’ I might have to just go and park out on the road.
(relaxing music) Okay, so it is now Friday morning at about a half past seven in the morning and it’s a beautiful day out there for flying. And the planes are just coming over, are taking off from Heathrow on the 27 runways. It looks like we’re gonna have some great views today after we take off, hopefully.
And my first flight today is to Boston on the British Airways Airbus A380 and it’s one I’m really looking forward to because I’ve flown on British Airways no end in the past and all on short haul. I’ve never flown long haul with British Airways at all. So this is my first long haul BA flight, I’m looking forward to it, also on the wonderful Airbus A380 as well.
So let’s head over to Terminal Five now and get ready for today’s flight! (airplane zooms loudly) Okay, so I’m heading on now across to where I’ve left my car outside.
So let’s if I can manage to get out. (relaxing music) (car doors close) Okay! No ticket. All good! (relaxing music) Okay, so all parked up and thankfully no ticket from the place I’ve had my car overnight so I’m here now at just north of Heathrow.
Parked my car and just walking down the free bus into Terminal Five. (relaxing music) – [Pilot] Good morning to you, ladies and gentlemen! It’s my pleasure to welcome you all aboard this British Airways flight to Boston, Massachusetts. There will be a short video highlighting the safety procedures for this Boeing A380 aircraft. (relaxing music) Okay, so we are now about two hours into this flight, heading over the Atlantic Ocean.
Some fantastic scenery we’ve seen so far as well, across Wales and Ireland, too. Wonderful flight, this is A380 is a lovely plane to fly in on any airline but BA’s crew really do go the extra mile. They’re fantastic so I’m really looking forward to the rest of this flight. I’m chilling out, enjoying a glass of wine and a bit of dinner. It’s a relatively short flight for the A380 this morning.
It’s only about six and a half hours long.
Six hours, 50 today, the captain said that when he spoke to us. So a very short flight. Boston is about as close to the UK as you can get in the States so a very short flight. Over six hours, 50 minutes.
Not long to go at all compared to my recent videos to Australia, so it’s a very nice short hop by all things compared. (relaxing music) So I am here now at Logan International Airport here in Boston, Massachusetts. It is the biggest airport here at Boston, the only airport here at Boston, actually. Absolutely fantastic flight over here with BA on board the Airbus A380. The aircraft is just such a fantastic aircraft to ride in, so comfortable, it’s really, really nice.
And it was only a short flight but it just felt like it had gone by in no time at all so thumbs up to BA on that flight. Will it be a thumbs up for my next airline on this trip? So I’m now heading down to Washington DC with JetBlue, a new airline for inflight Video, a new airline for me as well. I’ve never flown on any of the low cost airlines here in the States.
JetBlue will be my first so heading over to Terminal C, I believe, somewhere here at Logan Airport to catch my JetBlue Embraer 190 down to Washington DC!
(relaxing music) Okay, so I am now here at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Washington DC. It’s one stop down from Reagan Airport on the Metro, which is quite handy, you just hop on at the airport and hop off here and yeah, it’s all quite close to Washington DC. Seems to be quite a small, little city so I’m planning to go and have a wander around. Now, I’ve just been informed that my flight in the morning at six o’clock from Reagan International Airport leaves at six o’clock, which means I’ve got to be at the airport for half past four, ouch.
And it’s currently half past six in the evening, but actually, thinking about it, it’s not that bad because I’m still in UK time so actually, it’s at half past nine in the morning, which is a lot more reasonable.
Although, that does mean it’s now half past 11 at night and I have to go and have a wander around town yet. The weather here isn’t as great as I was expecting it to be, to be honest, but it’s not too bad. We had a really fun, gusty approach at landing in to Reagan on board the JetBlue Embraer 190. Fantastic little airline, JetBlue, awesome service. It was a low cost airline, we got free wifi, entertainment throughout, live TV that you can get at home and as well as that, there was snacks and drinks, all free of charge as well.
Fantastic service. Just a shame that the flight was a little bit bumpy and cloudy for the majority of it so I didn’t really get to see a great deal out of the window and so we’re on very short final here at Washington DC. Now, Washington DC, of course, the capital of these here United States of America, that’s a terrible accent, I know. But it is home as well to loads of really famous sights. (chorus singing) It’s home to these awesome people who have maintained a constant vigil here for almost 40 years outside that place there.

And it’s taking place here, (chuckles) just right outside the Capitol Building here in Washington DC, so yeah. It’s a strange thing to have at the heart of your political system, I guess. “You can’t spell sausage without USA”, oh dear. “Big Taste Grill”.
Okay. Right. I’m gonna go get back to the hotel. This is getting weirder by the second. (“This is America” by Donald Glover) Right, it’s been a crazy long day.
I am absolutely exhausted. It’s crazy late at night now in my time, in UK time. So gonna hit the hay. (soft click) (upbeat R&B music) Well, good morning and welcome to another day here in Washington DC. It’s really early in the morning here.
It is currently 3:53 in the morning, really early. But I have a flight to catch at six o’clock from Reagan Airport which is about a 15-minute drive from here. So actually in the UK it’s not too bad, it’s nine a.m., pretty much in the UK.
So I wanna stick on UK time, it sounds a lot easier until tonight, of course, when I’m have quite a late flight.
And where am I off to today? Well, the clue is in my T-shirt. I’m off to, initially, Chicago, I’m flying firstly this morning, I’ve got a six a.m.
flight. It’s with United up to New York at Newark Airport, actually in New Jersey, and that’s on an Embraer 145-ER which is quite a nice variant. You don’t see many of those but it’s the wing (mumbles) version of the Embraer 145. From here, I’m in business class on the Boeing 777 200, with United across to Chicago’s O’Hare International and then I’ve got a couple of hours in Chicago before heading back on some more flights later on today with Southwest Airlines.
So I’m gonna just grab my stuff together, everything’s been charging overnight.
Oh, I need to give you an update, actually, on the battery. I will grab me the battery and show you how it’s doing. So this Zendure battery yesterday, I filmed the entire flight from London to Boston at eight hours in total it was recording for and then I filmed the flight with JetBlue down here to Washington DC and that was recording for another two hours in total. And the battery so far, look at that. I don’t know whether you can see the percentage indicator on there, but it’s at 73% so it’s used 20.
.. My math isn’t good at this time of the morning. 27% to do pretty much 10 hours of recording, which I think, is pretty good so far. So let’s carry on using it.
I’m not charging it on this trip. My plan is to use this for the rest of the trip. Let’s see how much of it we can get recorded with it. Good morning, how much to DCA? – [Driver] To Reagan, then I’d say $7.
– Okay, yeah, can I get to the airport, please? – Come on in.
– Yeah, thank you. (upbeat music) – Okay, so I was due to be flying today on United on the ERJ 145 up to Newark and then on the 777 in first class across to Chicago but unfortunately the plane got sort of other plans and our aircraft is broken so after a mammoth 20-minute phone call to United, I have managed to get myself booked on this A320 that you see just sitting over there in first class which is okay, I suppose. – Ladies and gentlemen, once again, UA flight 4004 to Cleveland, they changed it to gate number 10.
Flight 4004, gate number 10. – So I’m a little bit gutted that I’m going on the ERJ and the 777.
That was something I was really looking forward to but at least I’m still going to Chicago on this, getting to be in about an hour early as well which is quite nice. Gives me a little bit more time to get across Midway. (relaxing music) Okay, so I am here now at Chicago O’Hare International Airport and after what was a wonderful flight over with United now, you know I said they’ve been great to me in the past, I’ve flown on them before and they are amazing.
And they were no exception this time either. We had a bit of a problem initially of course, and I’m a little bit gutted that I missed my Embraer flight and the Boeing 777 over here this morning but ultimately, they got me over here and I’m still half an hour earlier than I would’ve been had I got the original flights I was booked on and they did what they had to do and they got me here in first class and it was a fantastic little flight over with them so, little bit gutted that I didn’t the 777 and the ERJ today but you win you some really, so at the end of the day.
And, yeah, maybe next time for those. But I’m here now in Chicago and I’m gonna take a train down to downtown, have a look around, I’ve got another few hours before my next flight so I’m gonna go and take a one whirl around this beautiful city of Chicago. (upbeat music) So, originally, I had only a really short connection here in Chicago and thanks to Cape Air who were the original airline I booked with changing all the flight times, I ended up with five or six hours here in Chicago with time to kill.
So I guess, really, the question is not what are we gonna do it’s what are we gonna do? (upbeat rock music) ♪ Be seen out now ♪ ♪ Beep-beep ♪ ♪ Be seen out now ♪ ♪ Whoo-hoo-hoo ♪ ♪ Be seen out now ♪ ♪ Beep-beep-beep-beep ♪ ♪ Be seen ♪ ♪ Oh, why’d you turn her down ♪ ♪ Pull into America, roll your hands in pile of seeds ♪ ♪ I love it when you smile ♪ Oh, my God, that was like the best pizza I have ever had.
That was fantastic. Right, off to Midway Airport now for the next flight on this trip. (relaxing upbeat music) ♪ One, two, three, one, two, three ♪ ♪ Two three, one, two, three, ♪ ♪ One, two, three, two three, ♪ ♪ One, two, three, one, two, three, ♪ ♪ Two three ♪ ♪ Ooooooh ♪ So I’m here at Chicago’s Midway Airport, home to, of course, Southwest Airlines, one of the biggest low cost airlines here in the USA.
I’ve never flown on Southwest before. This is gonna be a really interesting experience for me. I’ve heard some really good things about them. They also have some really unique quirks to them, such as they don’t have any seating allocation or anything like that and you have to get the right boarding position. I’m not sure what that’s all about but we’ll see when we go through in just a minute, of course.
The flight sitting down through St. Louis, Missouri from here in Chicago, of course, following the old Route 66 from Chicago to St. Louis, for those of you who know that song, from there we head east again back to New York City in La Guardia International which is our final destination tonight.
I ,then, got a bit of a hotel tonight for our flight home to the UK tomorrow. Right, I’m gonna head into the terminal now, start and go through TSA.
And all those stuff we have to do here in the US, let’s go through it and see how this flight goes! (upbeat music) ♪ King of the road ♪ ♪ Trailer for sale or rent ♪ ♪ Trailer for sale or rent ♪ ♪ Ain’t got no cigarette but ♪ So I have to say that Southwest Airlines are impressing me already. As I mentioned earlier, originally I was good flying to St. Louis today with Cape Air who changed my flight and basically we scheduled it so there wouldn’t have been any time for me to have made that flight over at O’Hare.
So in a bit of a panic, less than two days ago, I was looking for alternative options of how I was gonna get to St.
Louis and I thought I’ll just check Southwest, see what their change fees are like and to my surprise, Southwest Airlines have absolutely zero change fees. It’s even to add on this additional, like down to St. Louis from Midway. And I was really impressed by that. Cost me nothing to change my flights and apparently it’s just the way that Southwest have always been, no change fees whatsoever.
So I’m quite looking forward to this. It’s clear to see who is at home here in Midway. Every single aircraft here is Southwest. I wish to be havin’ a look at the way that they board the planes here and they have these weird podiums that you’ve kind of line to pass. You take whatever number your boarding pass is, you basically stand in a really quiet zone.
It’s a bit weird. I’ll show you around. So all of these podium things are where you stand with your number.
I’m in group A, which is probably the first we have to board so hopefully a decent seat on the flight. – Okay, boarding A-16 and 30 at the same time.
16 and 30, please board now. A-31 through 60 (background noise drowns out speaker). (flight attendant speaks over PA) (upbeat music) – [Flight Attendant] Hi, welcome aboard! (upbeat music) – [Pilot] We certainly have enjoyed sharing a part of our day with you aboard this flight. Thank you so much for choosing to share your day with Southwest Airlines.
Alright, you have a great day! Be safe out there! Come back and see us again. – Thank you so much! – Bye, thank you!
– Bye, see you! – Thanks very much, see you again! (upbeat music) Okay, so I am here now at La Guardia International Airport here in New York City and wow, what a fantastic couple flights they were with Southwest Airlines, my first ever flights on Southwest and I have to say they were fantastic! I know I always say that the crew are brilliant and I think I’m gonna have to stop doing that because Southwest really do take that to another level.
The service that you get on board, you’ve got wifi, you’ve got in-flight entertainment, you got a snack, you get a drink as well, all complimentary, all included in the price of your ticket, and it’s just incredible and the way they do everything, it just works so well, the boarding process.
It was a fantastic idea. Everybody was boarded within 10 minutes on each flight. It was amazing. The drink service is done in a really unique way as well. They kind of come out and take all of the orders for all the drinks before they actually, then go back and make all the drinks and just bring them all out on trays.
It’s a simple idea, really, so it makes it a lot quicker. Saves them from having to carry the trolley throughout that stuff and saves them a bit of money in the process. Everything I like is brilliant so I’m here now at La Guardia Airport which isn’t the best, I have to say.
A little bit cramped in there in the Southwest pier. I’m gonna go and try and grab an Uber back to my hotel now and try and see if I can find the best hotel, so I’m staying here tonight over the JFK.
(upbeat music) ♪ New York ♪ ♪ New York ♪ ♪ New York ♪ Hi, there! – How you doin’? – [Noel] Checkin’ in, please! – [Hotel Clerk] And may I have your photo ID, please? – Yeah, sure.
(“Theme from Psycho” by Bernard Herrman) This is the room. Wow, good Lord. (coughs) Good God! (mumbles) Okay! Well, this is interesting!
(sighs) Would you believe I complained about the Travelodge at London Heathrow on my way over here? Okay! So look at this. There’s a little light switch here. A phantom light switch.
So light’s up there, light switch there.
Light switch is on, click the light switch off, light goes off and comes on again. Okay, let’s try flickin’ that again. (chuckles) And it does the same thing! (laughs) Random and mystery light switch that doesn’t do anything but pops and turn that light off and on again!
This is like something out of Bates Motel. This is a terrible meme. What an absolutely awful hotel! (chuckles) Why it’s mirrored all the..
. Let’s see what this light switch does. Ah! It switches them and doesn’t switch them off again, that’s a bonus! Those light switch actually works.
I got this random set of drawers here that’s falling to pieces. Coffeemaker, at least. Air conditioning unit down here on the floor with a randomly placed office chair. ‘Cause everybody needs an office chair at the side of the bed. And out of this window, what do we got here?
We have a load of school buses parked up over there. A fantastic, beautiful view.
Absolutely stunning view. The back end of a Chevy Suburban, sorry Chevy Tahoe, and 50 school buses. Oh, and there’s a plane taking off there.
Off to the distance, you probably can’t see on the, up over the Days Inn and the Holiday Inn and all the nice hotels. Never mind. Oh, it stinks. Okay, so I’ve had to come out here because the smell in that room is just, oh, it’s making me feel sick already, I’ve only been in there like 10 minutes. It’s dreadful.
So I’ve come out here to (chuckles) get some fresh air before I go to sleep tonight and hopefully this fresh air will just knock me out ’cause it’s all I need is just knocking out so to make me sleep in this room is dreadful.
This hotel, I’ve to say, I think it’s the worst-rated hotel on TripAdvisor, near to JKF Airport. (chuckles) And it’s not really difficult to see why it’s a dreadful place but I’m only here for a few hours so (sighs) pick up for the shuttle in the morning’s at 5:30 for my take-off flight back to London! Which is the place to be and where I’m heading to tomorrow on BA from here out to JFK. I’m gonna go back inside and try and knock myself out with something to help me sleep in this place.
(chuckles) Dreadful, it really is dreadful. Never mind.
Let’s go and head back inside. (sighs) There’s a room right just here. Room three.
(laughs quietly) Can you imagine that? I thought my room was bad. Look at the stain in this carpet, my God. Good God. Oh, my God, carpet down there, look at that.
Okay, so I am here at the rather terrible hotel here at the JFK Airport. As I’ve already moaned, moaned and moaned about, so unfortunately, I’m gonna have a little bit more of a moan, I think, tonight.
I’m really tired and I just wanted to (mumbles) on this flight I’ve just been on actually. I had a lot of time to think today and I just, I guess wanted to talk to you guys about a few things. A question I get asked all the time, particularly since the Australia video that did so well, is why, why do I do this?
Why do I put myself through this to create these videos? Aren’t they just a waste of time and I just wanted to cover a couple of why’s of really, why do I create these full flight videos? Why do I create these crazy travel vlogs? I do them one at a time. The full flight videos I do them because I just wanna give something back, I guess.
I just have this passion for bringing the experience of a flight to people who are otherwise unable to fly. Bringing people the joy of what it’s like to see the world from 37,000 feet at the click of a button. When I was a kid, we didn’t have the internet. It was 20, 30 years ago, we didn’t have the internet.
I was mad on planes even back then and I would have given anything to have been able to sit down and watch a video of a flight in real time and see the world from so high up, look at the cloud formations, look at the landscapes below.
And of course, there wasn’t any way of doing that back then. We had these videos, it’s just plane videos that’s still going today. But they didn’t cover the full flights at all and I just wanted that sort of thing and I know that that’s what people want as well. There’s people out there who would love to be able to fly but can’t just like I was. They can’t either can’t afford to or through medical reasons or something like that.
And to be able to bring the thrill and the experience of flight to people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to do it, you guys, as well, you’re aviation mad just like I am. And I just want to be able to bring this experience of flying to you.
I’m in a position now, fortunately, where I can do this. And I can bring this. We have the internet.
We have the means to be able to book these flights. We have the internet to be able to show these flights to people and I just wanna do as much as I can to bring this experience to other people. And that’s why I film the full flight videos. Why do I take these trips like I do with these crazy, crazy three-day trips where I do like I have done this weekend? Six or seven flights in a couple of days?
And the reason being that I have a huge, huge channel obviously, I bet you’re watching this one now, and I have a release schedule where I basically release a full flight video every couple of weeks. And I don’t wanna be flying every couple of weeks.
I can’t do that. I have a family, I have wife, I’ve got some two lovely kids and also the fact that I don’t really enjoy being away from home for many nights at a time to be able to do this. I’m away enough with work without having to be away for inflight Videos well all the time.
So the way that I can get all these videos done is to take two or three days and just fly. Flight, flight, flight, flight, film, film, film, film. And at the end of this trip, I will have six new full flight videos which will keep the channel going for another three months, in terms of how many flights I’ve filmed on this trip, releasing one every other week. And it’s much better for me to just do it on one hit and spend two nights away from home, do all of this traveling and get all of the flights filmed and then I can go back home, and sit and edit them over the coming weeks and months and put them all together for you, hopefully into a video that you will enjoy on inflight Video.
So the reason I do all these trips like this is basically to reduce the amount of time I’m away from home!
I just wanna be there with my wife and the kids and it’s at times like this I get to the end of my (sighs) second day of filmin’ in a row. I’ve just two 22-hour days back to back. And I’ve got another really long day to come in and begin tomorrow, I’m absolutely wiped out.
But I know that these videos that I’ve just filmed for you guys are gonna keep the channel going, a fat bit longer, gotta keep these videos comin’ to you guys for the next few months and that is what motivates me and inspires me to be able to carry on creating these videos. I guess the upshot of this, I don’t really know.
I just wanted to bring you kind of an idea of what it’s actually like.
I know I put on a funny face and I try to make light of all of this. You know, it can be fun. But I get to this sort of time, usually two days into the trip, just before I’m about to come home and I just wanna get home and that’s exactly how I’m feeling right now. It’s now 10 o’clock at night here in New York, which means that in London, it is two, three o’clock in the morning in London.
My flight leaves here at eight o’clock in the morning. I’ve got a shuttle to the airport at half five and I’m catching the daylight flier over to London so I get back home at eight o’clock tomorrow. This time tomorrow, in 24 hour’s time, I will be in my own bed and not in some stinky, crappy hotel room here in New York. Right. I’ve done enough moaning for one night.
I’m sorry that you’ve had to sit there and listen to me moan for the last few minutes about everything and not actually really moaning because it’s a very (mumbles) opportunity and to be able to bring these videos to you guys is what truly, truly, truly motivates me, it really does. You guys mean the world to me and just being able to bring this experience of flight to you is worth these long days for me, it really, really is because my aim, ultimately, is to bring it to the point where you just click on a button and watch a full flight video from an entire worldwide network of flights.
That’s it, pretty much. Ooh, and I forgot to tell you, actually, just one other thing. The Zendure battery situation.
So this thing now, I’ve refused to charge this while I’ve been away. I wanna give you guys a true reflection of how this battery’s actually doin’. And would you look at this. So this, bear in mind, this battery has now filmed the full length flights of London to Boston, Boston to Washington DC, DC across to Chicago this mornin’, Chicago to St. Louis, St.
Louis to New York La Guardia. In total, 16 hours of footage so far, this has been powering my GoPro for 16 hours, in total. Would you look at that, can you see that? I can see it quite clearly but it looks like it’s blurred out. We’re down to 52% of the battery.
This thing has recorded 16 hours of footage on less than half of its capacity. I was a bit worried about whether or not I’d have enough battery power left in this to last for my eight-hour flight tomorrow back to London but the fact that I’ve done 16 hours on half the battery already? I’m actually really impressed with this thing.
And to be honest, it’s really cold as well. Compared to my other one, which is a little bit unwieldy, this one is really nice.
Other than it’s quite a chunky battery, it sits perfectly between the armrests and the window on the aircraft or it sits in the seat pocket thing quite clearly quite easily as well. It’s a great little battery pack and the fact that I’ve only gone through half of the battery already, I’m quite impressed with this so far. I’ll give you a full lowdown tomorrow when I get back home on how it’s performed on the last flight tomorrow back to London. Right, I’m going to bed. I’ve been trying to sleep for the last half hour.
The room stinks. I don’t know whether you can hear that but the person in the next room is playing Judge Judy at 50 decibels. I’m itchin’. This is (beeps) horrible. Okay, so it is now just gone off 4:30 in the morning here at the wonderful JFK Inn.
(sighs) I’ve barely slept. (TV drones on faintly) That TV has been blaring in the room next door since I got here last night.
I’ve had Judge Judy, we’ve had action movies, we’ve had guns goin’ off in the TV (chuckles) all night. I just need sleep, I’m so cold because the only way to reduce the smell of this room slightly has been to have that aircon unit on as cold as possible to bring it some fresh air from outside but it still stinks. So I have got the shuttle bus over to JFK Airport in less than an hour and let me tell you, I’m so looking forward to getting out of this place.
I thought Travelodge was terrible.
(chuckles) And the compact Travelodge basically, all is forgiven. I’m gonna go and grab my things together and go sit outside where it is hopefully not gonna smell as much and wait for my shuttle bus.

It’s actually a lot nicer here than it was when we left New York earlier on today.
I’ve just been and grabbed my dinner and I’m heading back to the car now. That was a great flight over on the British Airways 747 and I can’t believe that in 30 years of flying on British Airways, I’ve never actually flown on one of their 747s and that was the first time for that, (chuckles) so it was quite a nice experience although the cabin is getting little bit tight, let’s just say but the in-flight entertainment system was state of the art. It’s much better than even the A380 that we had on the way out! So I’m just trying to work out, I think it’s just over 48 hours since I left here in London to hit the USA and now I’m back here again after another crazy trip around the eastern states of the US and it was great fun, I quite enjoyed that.
Got some really nice video footage of all the flights I’ve taken for you guys!
Hopefully some awesome full flight videos to come out of this as well. I’ve tried out, of course, some fantastic airlines on the way. Southwest Airlines, amazing. JetBlue, amazing. United, good as always.
British Airways, well, what can I say, fantastic. And as always, they are my preferred airlines when I’m flying out of the UK normally. I love BA. Aside from being my home country’s airline and there is just something really symbolic about coming in to land over the city of London on a beautiful day with those dark blue Rolls Royce engines just glinting in the sun just out the window. It’s, yeah!
Just really strikes a chord with me. It just feels great to be home, really. And that experience was there throughout the whole flight. It’s just amazing. I’m really pleased that I’m back home now and I can go and get some sleep.
Brought my dinner, I need to go and grab this to eat, and then on my way back to, back to the east midlands now, which is gonna take me around another couple of hours and then I’ll be home so, yay! So an update on the battery situation as well, just for one last time before I get in the car here. The Zendure A8PD battery that I’ve taken with me on this trip, I have landed today after filming yet another full length flight on BA. It was an eight-hour one this time and I still have 30% of battery power remaining so that is pretty awesome. And to be honest, I’m gonna be taking this with me on all of my trips now so thanks so much to Zendure for that.
The link to this battery is in the description below. If you go ahead and check that out, that is awesome, it’s such a great battery. And if you wanna be filming flights like this, it’s amazing. And thanks so much for watching this video, guys.
Really appreciate it as always.
