Photo review of Sun D'Or flight from Tel Aviv to Rhodes in Economy

This flight report covers my trip to Rhodes Island, Greece.

Background

My schoolmate and my best friend called me few days before flight. He asked me If I want to join in to a vacation in Rhodes, Greece. As I needed some brake from school and I wanted to fly again (My last trip was to Vienna, Austria in March 2015), I agreed to join.
Flights cost 390$ per 2 directions. In my opnion, it's pretty expensive for 1.5 hour flight. Sometimes you can find flights on this route for 140$.
We were staying 4 nights at Atlantica Aegean Hotel (5*) that located near Kolympia, half an hour from RHO Airport. We hadn't payed for our staying in the Hotel because we're VIP guests of the Hotel, As a result our vacation was pretty cheap.

Our Flights:
Tel Aviv (TLV) -> Rhodes (RHO) LY5033 B738 (You're Here!)
Rhodes (RHO) -> Tel Aviv (TLV) BZ761 B734

We arrived to the duty-free area after check-in, Passport Control and the security checks. I decided to spot on some planes:
Turkish Airlines Airbus A330-300 and United Boeing 777-200ER:

The service started 15 minutes after departure. Every passenger got a snack and a bottle of water. In my opnion, It's enough for 1h20m flight time.

The passport control passed quickly as we're the first on the line, and our baggage arrived quickly. We went to our driver and after half an hour we arrived to our hotel.
Thanks for reading!
