Photo review of KLM Cityhopper flight from Bâle to Amsterdam in Economy

Welcome to another translation from french reports of flights to the US and Canada.

As almost usual my trip starts in BSL for a flight to AMS with KLM Cityhopper.

A F70, as scheduled:

Boarding was called on time and priorities are respected that will allow me to take some cabin shoots:

The seats are the slimline, non reclinable, hard as rock simili-leather seats. I hate them and will alwaws do :)

On time take-off and the breakfast snack is served by a lovely crew, smilling and attentive. A scrambled egg sandwich was served, I'll take some apple juice and a coffee to go with:

The snack was good, it was fresh and tasty. The coffee was very good and the juice … was juice ^^

Some inflight and take off shoots. I didn't know at that time that the F70 flaps could extent till 42°, quite impressive:

Another perfectly on time KL flight, with a nice crew. I hate this new cabin, even if very good looking it is a nightmare for any butt :)
Checks in MLH are always lacking staff in the morning, but it is a nice airport.
Transit in AMS was a nightmare as we were in the middle of the morning rush.
