Vienna Airport



I arrived at Vienna Airport at about 8 o'clock by car and immediately walked to the check-in counter. As there were only two Economy counters and online check-in was not possible for this flight, there was a long line and I had to wait about 45 minutes. After check-in I proceeded to security.

After clearing security in about 5 minutes, I walked to the gate for the flight, C40. My aircraft was just arriving.

I still had some time, so I walked around the terminal.

On my walk, I spotted some aircraft. Unfortunately, most windows have an obstructed view, which makes it almost impossible to take good pictures. I still tried…

Legroom enough for me (1.65m/5.4feet) but not very generous.

Afterwards, I visited the rear lavatory. It was clean, but rather small.

Charles de Gaulle Airport



Walking towards luggage claim. The luggage arrived at belt 26. Interestingly, my luggage, even though Priority-Tagged, arrived later than a lot of other bags not equipped with this tag. However, this was no problem, as I had many hours between my connection, anyway.

As my connecting flight departed from Orly, I had to take the bus (le bus direct) line 3.
