First time on Flight Report EN
First flight Bucarest-Cluj
First arrival in à Cluj


We are on our trip in Romania

We booked with Tarom a go and turn Bucarest-Iasi.
But, they changed the reservation due to the fact that our supposed plane left the pist at Chisinau.
We couldn't take the flight that Tarom gave us so we wanted to cancel our flight
The gave us only 26.41 euros on the 40 euros we paid.
After I contacted flying Blue, I hope to receive the end of the money

Instead, we are going next to Cluj-Napoca

We left the Parliament house at 4.30 and we arrive at 5am at OTP.After the securities checks (quite fluent), I turn left to the nationnal flights doors.

The Fids :

Our flight wasn't on the fids on the contrary of my boarding pass informations :

I tried to connect on the Wi-fi but it worked only after severals tried :

photo img_2535

All the gates are pax-bus.
Only one possibility for eating.
A coffee shop, the most expensive I've seen : 9 euros for a croissant and an orange juice
One possibility to stop, come back to the securities checks.
Here :
Tarom B737-800 (first time I see)
Wizz air A320-A321 (old and new livery)
Klm B737
Blue air B737



An hour before the flight, no information at our gate
45 min before the flight,a ryanair flight for Timisoara is announced : everyone was stressed
30 min before the flight, Tarom's flight attendant arrived and made all go in the correct way
Here we go

Our plane is at the furhtest parking of the airport :

Here is the business class which got the same seat at the economy class (the central seat is neutralised)

excellent pitch :

Central IFE, i don't know if it worked because I slept most of the flight:
Air FI (Air France press equivalent) which didn't work :

Something that I can't believe which exist only at this airport, az pax-bus of 50 m.
Le placeur est à notre parking et la porte des arrivées est visible derrière lui :
