Shortly before Christmas I travelled to Berlin TXL for the weekend to visit friends from MAN with KLM (returning with Airfance) via AMS (and returning via CDG).
The flights I took are as follows:
MAN-AMS KL1082 AMS-TXL KL1829
return TXL-CDG AF1535 CDG-MAN AF1168
As part of this trip I'll also have bonus of a flight, the reasons for which I'll come to in that report. MAN-SOU BE874
My first leg was the MAN-AMS leg departing at 10:50. I took the train from my home in Sheffield to MAN for the 1:20 journey arriving at MAN at around 9:30, around 1:20 before departure.
Skyteam flights depart from MAN Terminal 3, which requires a bit of a walk from the airport station. I had no hold luggage so proceeded to the security check with my hand luggage. This passed without any issues and I was soon airside. It was quite busy that morning in T3 and as I had been up early I needed some food. I chose to go to a small cafe and ordered an egg and cheese muffin and a tea.
Not the most sophisticated of food but it filled a hole. It was also very hot.
I had a little time before my departure and took the opportunity to do a bit of spotting.
There were a coupling of AA flights heading to JFK and PHL (hence the busyness) as well as the usual Ryanair.
You can also see my B737-900 arriving.
It was soon time to board. Boarding proceeded with Skyteam Elite etc passengers first (this is now going be me on my new trip :D )
I boarded the plane and was greeted onboard and took my seat in 21A.
Typical Manchester weather.
In the seat pocket were a couple of magazines and the safety card.
We were soon on our way on time.
Once we were up in the air the service began. I was pleased to have a relatively decent meal (not just the nachos!)
I love the little boxes and the cups with dutch pictures on them.
The short hop over the North sea was soon over and we arrived in AMS.
Manchester - MAN
Amsterdam - AMS
A pretty normal flight here with KLM. I was pleased to get a snack that was a bit more substantial than some of the ones I've had previously with KLM. The crew were pleasant but nothing to write home about.
