After a short night at the Renaissance Brussels, I take a cab to the airport which will cost me a whooping EUR 40.- fee for a little less than a 15' drive.
So old school:
I expedite check in and security in no time, another departure screen:
Almost empty terminal:
To my Jack's Flight Report friends:
Mandatory Duty Free crossing:
KLM business class passengers can go to the Diamond Lounge which does not look appealing from the outside:
And not much better from inside, but at least the welcome was warm enough and there is plenty of food options:
Early morning continental breakfast:
Shortly before boarding I head to the boarding gate, the terminal is almost empty:
My plane night stopped in BRU:
The good joke of the day: the crew is not here. They arrived at 07:30 for a 07:45 departure. We board at 07:40 and here's the cabin, still an E190 cabin as per my previous report:
The crew tells us they have been late due to a taxi problem. We leave the gate at 08:00, here a SN ARJ and 330:
Line up and take off:
Brussels gently wakes up at 08:00:
The catering is nothing to write a home about, but its fresh and does exists, that's already a good thing:
Sunrise on the other side:
The cherry on the cake was that we landed at the farthest most runway of the airport.
Leading to a 15' taxi time for a final block at 09:10. It does not seem to be a big delay but lots of passengers (including me and my suitcase!) had short connections. My connection is now only 55' and I need to connect to a non-Schengen flight.
Some pictures from the Fokker / Embraer Farm:
Speedy goodbye to the crew, I need to run ^^
If you look for a cheap and good quality accommodation in Brussels, the Renaissance is really great:
Restair Diamond Lounge
Brussels - BRU
Amsterdam - AMS
A very short flight, appropriate catering, crew and flight overall good. But the delay on arrival, given the short duration of the flight puts the on time performance rating very low.
