A low loaded C-Series

Buenos dias,

RENFE was quick, lucky me, the connection on the subway works at the very last day prior to a bus sub service and some renovation works. At the "Aeropuerto Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas", good to go for the Sala VIP, no, never been there before!. In direction "Flughafen Zürich" it was.
Here are the pictures:

A better load this time, but far from a full flight, comfy for me in the rear cabin.
All crew was introduced by name from the cockpit, nice. Also informations inflight several times in a nice style, well done
Departure ontime, late arrival, fog at my destination airport means more distance between the approaching planes, no prob for me, but some difficulties with the pax on the late night connecting flights, STR, too!.

More to come.
Bis bald. The Tripreporter.

Sure!. This is VLL on the map and no. 363:

It feels like strange, everytime when I´am here at the "Aeropuerto de Barcelona–El Prat" and the old terminal.
Far to large, dirty, scruffy, oldfashioned, abandoned areas, guarded by security staff, not enough restrooms for the huge number of pax and cold it was indoor. Ok, heating is expensive!.
The flight was late, but finally it was time to go for the "Aeropuerto de Valladolid".
Sure, with a couple of pictures:

A healthy close to 100% load it was.
Screaming kids, lot´s of younger people but also some biz travellers.
And interesting to follow, the last rows are more expensive on the Ryan and exactly there are the couple of visible open seats.
All ok?. Well, a late arrival, a more late bus for the city and, my fault, arrival at the estacion, but not at the Renfe, no at the bus station, what means to search and walk for the train station. But finally made it, close, very close, for the fast train to my next airport.

More to come.
Hasta la vista. The Tripreporter.

The "Flughafen Zürich" early in the morning. A good way to start a day in the air, isn´t it?. And maybe also for a new place and just a little bit sun around?. Now we will see!.
Anyway, the "Aeropuerto de Barcelona–El Prat"
is the place to go right now.
Sure, with a couple of pictures:

A comfy experience it was with a lesss than 40% load. What means more than really needed open seats for me in the rear cabin.
The female purser was also really nice.
Less comfy was the transfer in Barcelona, arrival at the new terminal, ok, out for the fresh air, free bus shuttle for the old one. But it´s necessary to go this way for my next destination!.

More to come.
Adios. The Tripreporter.
