Hi everyone and welcome to this flight report which will cover my domestic flight between Lyon and Nantes.
About 3 months ago I bought my ride throught easyjet.com website which was easy to navigate on. Return flight was about 80€ with EZY, while 100€ with AF, I chose the first one.
So let´s get into it! I arrived at the airport 2 hours before estimated departure, which was quite early, flying from/to the same country. Here was the entry of terminal 3, which is in fact the ground floor of Terminal 1.
I had a short walk towards terminal 3 (sorry for the blurred photos..^^)
And entered Terminal 3
LYS T.3 is for sure an Easyjet hub,
But also for other low cost carriers such as Transavia
I was surprised by the queue there was at Easyjet reclaim desk…
…but it was because of a flight cancellation and because of the delay of 2 other U2 flights!!
Mine was on-time!
Afterwards, I made my way to T.1 airside,
and to the security check
In winter, Lyon is a link to the Alps ski stations:
I cleared security in about 10 minutes (not as the 5 minutes which were displayed on screens)
and started my (long) way to the boarding gates, which took about 10 minutes
and allowed me to take a pic of the new Terminal 1 which will enter into service in January, 2017
and of a TK B738 in the distance
Then, I arrived to the gates
and had a quick look around the terminal
As you can see, there is actually nothing: a bar and a dutyfree shop a not enough seats for everybody, what a mess! Anyways, I went for some plane spotting but, well, there were no windows! Disappointed, I went to the ONLY bathroom of the terminal 3, which, by the way, was clean…and had windows!!!
So there I were, taking photos in the lavatory, as every Avgeek would have done ^^ These were my views:
I managed to spot some aircrafts as this LH A320 Sharklets arriving Munich
and TK B738 banking away runway 18R heading Istanbul as a U2 A319 was landing on runway 18L at the same time
At 7pm (15 min late), boarding was called gate D08, I was one of the first to enter the waiting room
and to exit this last one, followed by other passengers
Today´s aircraft is a 10 year-old A319-111 "G-EZAP"
that I boarded through the rear door, after a short walk (always a good point for an Avgeek^^)
I was warmly welcomed by the crew and headed to today´s seat: 16A
View from my seat
and from my window
I put my luggage in the overhead lockers and took a photo of the pitch
Cabin was clean but showing his age, legroom and seat are OK for an 1 hour-flight. We pushed-back just on-time (half past 7) and took-off 10 minutes later. Today' s estimated flight time was of 55 minutes, as our (super-funny) cabin manager told us. Flight was unevenful: we arrived 15 minutes before schedule and I exited the main terminal at 20:45.

I won´t report the return flight so here are some pics: Easyjet check-in area at NTE
This day´s FIDS
Boarding the aircraft at NTE
and deboarding it at LYS
Flight went smoothly and arrived on-time. See behind an amazing light distortion photo when I was managing to snap EK B77W
Thanks for reading me, feel free to comment and have a good one!
Lyon - LYS
Nantes - NTE
In overall, it was a good flight with Easyjet, good value for money and on-time flight. Good alternative to the train or to Air France flights. Lyon Terminal 3 is too small for the amount of Easyjet flights and hasn´t got enought seats and services. Also, there is a long walk from the T.1 and it´s a totally non-spotting-friendly terminal without windows. Public transport consists in a train which runs every 20 minutes from downtown Lyon for...15€!!!! Nantes main terminal is little and clean. It takes just a few minutes to exit the terminal. Access is better than LYS one but doesn' t get a good grade because of the expensive bus that goes from/to the airport from/to downtown Nantes: 8,5€ is way too much for a 15 minutes ride!!
