And lucky me, as scheduled,
"Amsterdam Airport Schiphol
Luchthaven Schiphol" it is once again for the last leg of the trip. And this is also the second leg on the Opodo confirmation, the fare is 55.00 Euro´s.
OLCI works well also this time.
The lounge?. Joke!.
What about this one.
Strange, isn´t it?. With all these
hustle and bustle, I´am doing pictures, but well that´s Tripreporter´s way to calm down!

This is an old friend here,
PH-EZA, the one without an individual name, an Embraer 190.
Leg no. 30 on type and certainly nothing new to me, done on AMS-STR twice before
 photo EJAN2014149_zps41ecc054.jpg
 photo EJAN2014150_zpse66ef80d.jpg
In the air with KLC since 08.11.2008, the first delivery from the 28 in the fleet.
Here are some stories:
 photo EJAN2014151_zps4ea8e453.jpg
 photo EJAN2014152_zpsbd7cd818.jpg
Ok there is in most cases the one and last pax to board a plane, isn´t it?. And just by coincidence this is never ever me!
 photo EJAN2014153_zps2455867c.jpg
 photo EJAN2014154_zpsf5a6630d.jpg
Cabin crew is one elder female FA, ok and one younger, large, blonde, well built, no this is not a stereotype, woman, with a really nice touch.
Cockpit crew is from the Netherlands, the "Kapitein" with a nice and detailed welcome during taxi and in the very same style once again during approach. The routing is via FRA at 39000 feet.
4.30 pm, as usual in such cases, perfectly ontime, 1.00 hours to go from the 3400 meters "One-Eight-Left". "City", the classic callsign, leaving 7 wet degrees.
Just to see the clouds from above
 photo EJAN2014155_zps224d035c.jpg
 photo EJAN2014156_zpsf357e423.jpg
The cabin fitted with dark blue leather seats, ok legroom and clean so far.
The load is 90%, lots of biz travellers today.
26F, the last row window, two for me and while I´am working my best dutch knowledge a visit from the nice young FA from time to time!.
The safety card and WOW, another issue

 photo EJAN2014158_zps856e3393.jpg
Do you imagine how a well loaded plane of Gouda crumbles cheese biscuits smells?.
Well, if you don´t like cheese, it´s better to take the parachute now and leave this place immediatelly!
 photo EJAN2014159_zpsb052cdce.jpg
But lucky me, I like dutch Gouda cheese!.
STR welcomes me not that long thereafter at runway "Two-Five".
5.30 pm, 15 minutes ahead to schedule, 2 degrees and snow showers, shudder.
But well, no more shudders, disembarking takes ages, in fact all the other pax are gone and I´am still learning more words in dutch.
Well, nice staff here, especially these young wo...., ok nice staff here by KLC!.
But anyway these young woman from Swiss impressed me yesterday and she is just somewhat higher on my wish list, you know!.
The car is where it supposed to be and also the homebase welcomes me back not that long thereafter!.

Here are the conclusions:

1.)Swiftair OVD-MAD: Comfy and really nice crew as it should be.
2.)KLM MAD-AMS: Done, that counts.
3.)KLC AMS-STR: Supernice and talkative staff here.

And here is also a view for the upcoming story.
Well, Turkey maybe on Turkish airlines?.
Southeastern Anatolia as far as 10 kilometers from the Syrian border for a place where a lot of people have never heard of it, me included prior to the preparations, but it´s the fifth most important place in the islamic world and more than 800000 inhabitants call it home:

Adiós por ahora, take care.

The groundfloor it is right now, up the stairs for connections and imagine how many pax decided to go really upstairs after leaving the bus?. You know, the one and only!.
This is an Opodo ticket, 4 legs on the confirmation, the fare with this leg is 55.00 Euro´s.
OLCI works perfectly via the KL website, 30 hours prior to departure. Looks like a full flight, an upgrade to biz is on offer at 199.00 Euro´s with just 3 biz seats open, declined.
And this time it´s me to safe money and energy.
Who needs a printout when the airport papers are much nicer, isn´t it?.
There is no transfer desk here at MAD, at least not for KL.
The gate for the earlier service is closed, but two women are still at work.
What about a try to do it here?.
Gate check-in is possible, sure, but only when the desk for the flight is open. Ok, but I´am in urgently need to visit the lounge?.
Is it possible without a boarding pass?.
Well, one of the two women decided to walk with me upstairs for the lounge and confirm that I´am good to go this way. Really nice service here and she also delivered the boarding pass later on to the lounge, more really nice service here, well done

 photo EJAN2014131_zpsa455e558.jpg
Yes, I like these blue colours

 photo EJAN2014134_zps164705d3.jpg
Boarding this way from E69
for the "Goose", PH-BXH is an 737-800.
Leg no. 76 on type and new to the log, lucky me!.
In the air since 15.08.2000 and switched several times between KLM and Transavia.
24 examples are in the fleet.
Here are two stories:
 photo EJAN2014135_zpsa0114a48.jpg
 photo EJAN2014136_zps329accbc.jpg
Cockpit crew is from the Netherlands, the "Piloot" with a nice welcome at the planes door during boarding and on the mike during taxi. He is once again to hear during the approach.
The routing is BIQ-BOD-PAR, no flightlevel info to notice.
Cabin crew is two male FA´s, both elder and nice
and two women, both elder and nice, too.
1.05 pm it is, short ahead to schedule and time now to leave the "Adolfo Suárez
Madrid–Barajas Airport
Aeropuerto Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas" again. 2.20 hours to fly by "KLM" from the 3500 meters runway "Three-Six-Right" at 12 partly cloudy degrees.
Snow in Spain?.
Ok, at least snowy peaks!
 photo EJAN2014137_zps716b8cfb.jpg
 photo EJAN2014138_zps5fc68ed9.jpg
The load is 90% with me in 31A, the last row window. The aisle is taken and the middle seat is open.
Legroom is somewhat low here with the mixed blue red, clean so far fabric seats and just some seat details

 photo EJAN2014140_zps037751a1.jpg
WOW, the issue
 photo EJAN2014143_zpsd803d85a.jpg
 photo EJAN2014141_zps379198dc.jpg
Safety, sure, on the way

Good idea here by KL together with free drinks

Well, is this a good sign when you are on a short connection?. We are running not that really, but just a little late and go to touchdown at "Amsterdam Airport Schiphol
Luchthaven Schiphol´s" 3800 meters Polderbaan "One-Eight-Right" at 3.45 pm with 7 wet degrees and now a lengthy taxi to follow. Well, it seems it´s not a really good sign after this information from the flightdeck when the purser approached you´re seat with these I´am so sorry sign on his forehead:
"Sir, it´s impossible to catch you´re connecting flight".
"I will try it".
"Do you have checked luggage".
"No, as usually not".
"Ok, you can try it, if you like, let me check the gate, B36 it is for STR".
All the seats upfront are also taken, so there is no way to change.
And perfectly fitting in this case B36 ist the outhermost gate with the B´s and perfectly fitting again you see the plane with the lighter at the fuse to fire up the engines better sooner than later.
And well, as far as I like comfortable and relaxed last row seating it feels not like the best decision today.
A fully loaded 738 and a gate position, you know, that needs ages till all these frequent once a year travellers leave the plane.
And no, no I don´t run through an airport in best STN FR style.
But powerwalking is allowed from arrival at the gates till departure at the gates it seems I´am flying like a KL plane, too!.
Boarding is well on the way when I´am at the gate and it seems there is a really good chance that I´am the last one, but only for today!.
But wait, my boarding pass produced a red sign?.
And a literally look on the face of the anyway nice female gate agent, too.
"Sir, you´re offloaded with the impossible connection?".
"But well, I´am here and there is no checked luggage to handle".
Ok, she´s checking her screen and swiftly produced a new paper with my original seat, well done KL!.

One more leg to go right now.
