Bumped into @Cennydd at Heathrow, many hours ahead of the flight we’re both on. We are both clearly members of the @CraigMod school of air travel.

The rare times I do this I am quite happy I have done it (usually on international flights, but it has been a while since I’ve done that, other than Canada) I have been quite happy and far less stressed. Too often I am trying to get a call, meeting, or last minute of something in before heading to the airport an have had far far too many close calls. One thing that helped with getting myself the the airport early was airline club access, which allowed for work or call time at the airport before the flight.

I am a fan of working in airport lounges. I have BA Gold/One World Emerald Status and Amex Platinum to ensure I can pretty much always find myself a nice spot to work. Makes a huge difference as I just get there early and work in the airport, only risk to my flight is getting so engrossed I forget to go to the gate! However I’ve never come close to missing a flight (other than when my inbound was late, but nothing I can do about that).
