They are getting everywhere.

Having suffered 2 years of enforced lousy English weather, we decided to take our triple vaxxed bodies off to the sun for a couple of months, So last Saturday we boarded BA2702 for Tenerife.
The Captains welcome message before take off included the phrase, "Good morning to you all, this is your Captain Karen Atherton.................".
In over 55 years of flying, this is the first time we have travelled with a lady Captain, she sounded bright and confident and the Stewardess didn't think she would need the help I offered regarding setting the Sat Nav.
It was a perfect flight, although she had the pedal to the floor and we arrived 30 mins early (not bad on a 4.5 hour flight), we even had a soft landing , which is hard to do on the regularly ploughed tarmac which is Aeropeurto de Tenerife Sur.

I would comment that the copious Covid related forms , certificates and "passes" we had to complete, or obtain online, prior to our flight and have on our person at all times, were studiously ignored by every official in the departure and arrival process.
I think they assumed that the other bloke had checked us.
Not totally reassuring, but we did all wear our masks on the airplane.

By the time we return to England its probable that all the Covid restrictions (which are now very minimal for triple vaxxed) will have disappeared.......................I hope.
Off now to sit in the sun with a good book, something I haven'tdone for a while.
Ten un buen dia.
