Another Ryanair Flight Review/Report from me (so soon). I was not anticipating this day out to Gothenburg.
7 days (1 week) before this flight I heard Ryanair was doing a flash sale. I shopped around and found that on February 10th 2016, I could go to Gothenburg from London Stansted for £2 return (plus £5.99 x2 for seat reservation). I felt it was a good steal.
It meant getting to GOT around 11:30am and leaving around 17:25pm. Meaning I had (minus time at the airport for Passport Control and going airside) I had 4 1/2 hours in Gothenburg to get some spotting and (Hopefully) sightseeing done.
I got to London Stansted (after a 90 minute journey from Burnham), which was still under the cover of darkness at 6am.
I got through Security. It was a bit of a wait- probably around 20 minutes.
I got a picture of a rare Boeing 747-400, a new STN-based Subsidiary of the Russian ABC Cargo. I then got "told off" for taking pictures, with the gentleman saying that Photographs are not permitted. I moved on and had no further incident.
I went straight to my Gate as the board had shown up where I needed to be.
I boarded Boeing 737-8AS(WL) registered EI-EMF, which seemed to have been doing solely the STN-GOT-STN service for the last few weeks.
Our flight boarded and was roughly 50-60% full and we left on time, I found I had a whole row to myself.
I had been up since 4am, and I really didn't want to have anything in the Terminal, so I picked up a 5EUR snack-box, a 2EUR Orange Juice and a cup of Tea for another 3EUR. 10EUR (£7) which was quite a reasonable amount of stuff for the money- given that it is Ryanair I were flying.
The flight was smooth and uneventful. The weather outside the plane looked fantastic after we broke through the clouds. Which allowed for nice pictures and film.
After 2 hours of flying, we descended back through the clouds and arrived in a dull Gothenburg Landvetter airport.
First two planes I saw were a Sun Air Scandinavia (BA) Dornier 328J and a stationary Ukrainian Antonov AN-12B.
We parked up and I went to the flight deck to snap two pictures and thank the crew for a nice flight. As I departed the plane I got some pictures of EI-EFM as well as the Turkish 737 parked next to us.
After quicky getting through passport control- I beelined for the Multi-story car park and stayed their from 11:30am until 13:00pm spotting.

After catching these aircraft- I left to buy a return bus ticket to visit the city of Gothenburg…
London - STN
Gothenburg - GOT
London Stansted- Pretty well layed out airport. Lots of walking to certain gates. Really good views, just be careful where you take them.
Ryanair- Cheap & Cheerful, good seating. Loved the fact I paid £1 for this flight (without extras). Happily awaiting the next flash sale, always good flying with them.
Gothenburg Landvetter- Fantastic airport. Quiet as far as traffic goes, but nice steady flow and a good mixture of airlines.
