Hello and welcome to my flight-report on this Austrian Airlines flight in economy class. This flight to Vienna already is the return flight of my trip to Copenhagen, but I did not manage to take enough pictures to make a report on the previous flight.
As my hotel in the city was located near Copenhagen's main train station (København H), I decided to take the train to the airport. This is a very convenient and fast way, as it only takes thirteen minutes from the city center. The ticket is fairly cheap (for Copenhagen's standards) and only costs 36DKK (about 4.80€/5.42USD).
My train departed at 18:08 on platform 7 and was bound for Helsingborg.
We arrived at the Airport on time (18:21) and went up an escalator into the main hall. Walk to security.
After passing security and parts of the duty free section, I went to the food court near my gate.
After eating a sandwich I proceeded to gate A12, where the aircraft was supposed to wait for me. It turned out my aircraft had landed approximately 15 minutes late and was therefore just arriving at the gate. As I did not have a connecting flight, this wasn't a problem for me, though.
To pass the time, I walked around in the terminal and spotted some planes.
Thai 777-300ER (in the distance)
Czech Airlines (City of Magic Livery) A319-100
Air France A318-100
Adria Airways CRJ-900LR
Alsie Express ATR 72-500 (sorry for the cut-off picture, it wasn't possible to make it any better due to a with decoration covered window)
Danish Air Transport ATR 72-201
Air Greenland A330-200
And some SAS and Norwegian aircraft
THE FLIGHT: Aircraft: A320-200 Age: about 9 years Registration: D-ABZB Airline: Austrian Airlines Operator: Air Berlin (wet lease) Flight Number: OS306 Load: 100%
At 20:05 boarding at automated gates began.
Going through the glass jetbridge.
Aircraft tail with registration. The aircraft has a German registration because it was wet-leased by Austrian from Air Berlin as part of a deal involving 5 aircraft. Therefore, the cabin is equipped with Air Berlin seats and Crew is from Air Berlin as well. Service, however, is “Austrian Airlines style“.
Entering the aircraft.
My seat for todays flight: 11F. Unfortunately, the seat did not recline due to an emergency exit row behind. However, this wasn't a problem for me, as I never use the reclining function on such short flights.
Legroom (totally enough for me, but I am only 1.65m/5.4feet).
At 20:23, boarding was completed. The captain welcomed us on board, apologized for the delay and explained that it was the result from a thunderstorm over Vienna, which prevented the aircraft from landing on the previous flight. At 8:28, doors were closed and the cabin crew began a manual safety demonstration.
After a short taxi, we took off at 20:40 with a delay of 35 minutes.
Passing the clouds.
Seat pocket content.
Cabin during flight with curtain to business class closed.
Shortly after reaching our cruising altitude, drink service (with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages) started. Afterwards, snacks were distributed. There was a choice of either sweet (Austrian hazelnut sticks) or salty (crackers). I took a cup of water and the sweet snack option. The food was good and enough for this short flight.
After the meal, I visited the front lavatory. It was clean and looked as if nobody had used it during this flight.
Fasten seat belt sign was turned on when we started our decend to Vienna at 21:41.
At 21:52, lights were turned off for landing.
We landed in Vienna at 21:57, only 7 minutes after scheduled arrival!
Unfortunately, I did not have time to take any pictures of the terminal because I had to rush to catch the train to Vienna. The S7 train to Floridsdorf via the city center departed at 22:18 and I arrived to the train just in time.
Thank you for reading!
Copenhagen - CPH
Vienna - VIE
Copenhagen Airport: A nice airport and quite good for spotting. I would have liked bigger gates with more seating areas. Austrian Airlines: Cabin: Eventhough seats were from Air Berlin, they were quite comfortable. Everything was clean. Cabin Crew: Friendly and helpful. Entertainment: No TV, but an interesting magazine with lots of articles in both German and English. Meal/catering: Not a lot but tasty and enough for me on this late flight. Vienna International Airport: Because I was in a rush I did not notice a lot, but the walkway was short and everything was clean.
