This was our second (and unexpected) flight to Florida within one week of coming home from the last trip. It's safe to say, I've exhausted the film selection so I was looking for something different to fill the 8+ hour flight. Here's the end result. A video trip report!

Overall, very good flight. Second flight on the Dreamliner, and even though it didn't have much effect on me on the outbound leg, I felt a whole lot different coming off the return; no jet lag and felt great all day. The previous trip was in and out of MCO so I really noticed the 787's improvements when the 747 was so fresh in the mind.

Not featured in the video: 1) Miami immigration has improved so much. We touched down at 17:16 and in an Uber by 17:50. 2) WiFi speed was good but can be patchy in places. 3) Food was great but could only give the main and burger from the Light Bites menu four stars as the Chicken Satay starter was so so so good. 4) Crew not really featured but, very impressed by them - superb all round.

Wow - what can I say. I am so impressed. You have certainly raised the bar :-D I loved the transition of cloud to hot towel. Well actually, I loved it all.

Thank you so much for posting it. I shall enjoy watching it again & again whenever I feel the need to pretend I am Florida bound !

Thanks. A GoPro Hero 4 Silver with a stabiliser. Any shaky shots were on my iPhone 7. Need the GoPro5 really so it’s a bit easier to match resolutions and frame rates. I used Premiere Pro.

I was sure I'd posted on here yesterday (!).....suffice to say, what a very original and informative TR.

Not being Go Pro savvy, I have to admit I feel a tad self conscious when I wave the iPhone around to take some TR snaps.

Loved the second video, thank you. Another one I can re-run to cheer me during the dark days of winter.

I'm surprised you haven't seen me at Rumrunners. I was there more than usual last holiday ! Perhaps as well as luggage tags we could have discreet v-flyer lapel badges to identify us !!!!!
