As you may know, I'm now studying in the University of Edinburgh. To get to Edinburgh, we have to transfer at London. Once, I was in London waiting for my connecting flight. A lot of us sat down next to the gate. We sat there waiting for the announcement ready to board.
20 minutes from departure nothing.
10 minutes from departure "This is the final call for British Airways flight BA1xxxx"
The entire seating area by the gate jumped up and ran towards to gate.
In the end, we all managed to get on to the flight. I was sleeping most of the time on the airplane since I've just got off an international flight from Hong Kong.
