A Boston holiday begins in “a city within a city,” Logan Airport. This “Artport” features a collection of sculptures and paintings, its own power plant, a police troop, a fire-rescue unit, and a chapel. Visitors get quite a welcome alighting from their Boston flights.
Fly on American Airlines, the Best North American Airline at the Business Traveller Awards for the 16th year in a row in 2008. Expect excellence all the way down to the food, with choices such as steak with red chilli-dusted onions, and apple soy-marinated beef with horseradish cream and potatoes. Passengers can enjoy their favourite CBS sitcoms during their Boston flights, as well as a variety of magazines. AA’s planes have been fitted with larger storage space too.
Virgin Atlantic has had its share of accolades too, including “Best Long-Haul Airline” (The Sunday Times Travel Magazine Reader's Awards 2008), “Airline of the Year” (British Travel Awards 2007), and “Best Premium Economy” (Business Traveller Awards 2007). What’s more, it’s James Bond’s favourite airline, as shown in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. One can look forward to personal seatback monitors with video on-demand, with a selection of the latest films and TV shows. Video game consoles are also provided on some planes.
Besides Logan Airport, Continental Airlines also makes stops at the Manchester Boston Regional Airport. It was named North America’s “Best Airline” with the “Best Cabin Staff” at the Skytrax 2008 World Airline Awards. On Boston flights from most UK cities, passengers can watch the Global Trends in Travel show, exclusive to Continental Airlines, for a look into more places to head off to on a holiday. In-flight satellite telephones allow passengers to keep in touch with loved ones.
United Airlines also services both airports, touching base from London and Manchester. Here, anyone will feel “relaxed, respected, and rewarded” on their Boston flights, a promise made by United Airlines’ customer commitment. Can’t be away from the computer for long? Bring a laptop and click away non-stop. Power sockets are provided to keep it plugged in.
