London City Airport to Zurich, British Airways

A short walk from the Docklands Light Railway station, London City Airport is compact, quick to navigate and often crowded. But it beats Heathrow or Gatwick and is well equipped with power sockets, comfortable chairs, shops and cafe-bars. During the 100-minute flight to Zurich on the small plane with British Airway's trademark blue leather seats and impressive High Life magazine, you are served a drink and a hot, but fairly bland, sandwich. On landing, you take a bus to the terminal building, but your luggage tends to arrive promptly and it won't be long before you are at the railway station, which is just a 10 minute ride from the centre of Zurich. 7/10
