After arrival, I passed through the immigration and security check smoothly. I arrived at concourse F, which is used for Schengen destinations. I checked the FIDS but the gate for my flight would not be shown until 17:30pm, so I started wondering in concourse F. Apart from a duty free shop and some cafe right after the security check, there were only few kiosks to buy some food and drinks.

Soon, I found a gate with almost no people where I can sit down and surf the internet with my notebook. Time passed and eventually the FIDS indicated that our gate was assigned to F36, which is located at the far end of the terminal. I then brought myself a croissant and headed to the gate. When I got there, there were already people waiting. I found a seat and ate the croissant.

Boarding was delayed for about 20 minutes and as we got on the plane, there was an announcement from the cockpit saying that the preparation had been finished but they couldn't contact the captain, so we were expecting further delay. About 15 mins later, a stand-by pilot shown up and explained that there were probably some mistakes with the roster and apologized for the delay.

My seat 11A. Seat is the same RECARO seats you find on Lufthansa. Tonight my flight was operated by OE-LDE, an eleven years old A319 which is already in its new livery.

Push back started at 20:21pm. As the traffic was quite busy, we waited for some times on the taxiway. We took off at 20:34pm from RWY16. Soon after take off, drink service began shiftly and a chocolate bar was distributed. I am really impressed that they still provide drinks for such a short flight. I opted for a glass of sprite. About 15 minutes after take off, there was another announcement saying that we were leaving our cruising altitude. We landed at 21:16pm, flight time was 42mins. Our plane slowly taxi to the satellite terminal for disembarking.
