We flew on September 9, 1998 by TWA from San Francisco via St. Louis to London Gatwick and then caught a Ryanair flight to Dublin. Since we were using the last of my residual free miles we had first class tickets and were invited to use the Ambassador Club facilities. Diane & I readily agreed and enjoyed the quiet. The Captain on our flight to London invited me to the cockpit and I snapped a picture of him. Guess what, he was also the Captain on our return flight on October 19.

Then on September 25, having completed our travels in Ireland, we flew back to London to start our U.K. travels. If you are not interested in U.K. just click on the "green" colored link labeled "Virtual Tour of Ireland" at the lower left of this page to see the Republic of Ireland portion of our trip.
