This report will cover the second leg of our journey from AGP via MAD to ZRH.

We disembarked the CRK of IB8811 from AGP at the K-Gates of Barajas wonderful Terminal T4. We entered the main corridor and checked the FIDS. We have seen that the ongoing flight will depart from H18 - at the far other end of T4. Connecting time was 50 minutes so there was just a walk to H18.

We arrived at H18 an boarding already started. There were two lanes. So priorities were more or less respected.

At Check-in in Malaga, the lady told us that J was fully booked and she could not allocate our seats to sit together. When entered the plane we had the possibility to change the seat so finally we got 3A and 3C instead of 2F and 3C
IB3476 was operated by EC-MFP a 18 y.o Airbus A319. I do not know what the cabin looked like. Could have been contemporary art or old and worn out. The seat were noch reclinable in all rows and I found the very small. One could easily check what the in front of you is doing or reading.
Seat pitch was nonetheless good.

Soon boarding was completed and doors were closed and long taxy began. RWY 14L was in operation at present time. We got some nice of T4S but it was quite empty at that time.

T/O was unspectacular. Views were nice. Weather clear. No wind, no turbulences.

Checking the seat pocket I found out , that IB forgot to clean the table, the pocket and to change the Menu. We found 3 other Menus from last flights.

This was the todays offer. Most of the passengers decided to take pasta. Which was very good. Several bread rounds were made.

The flight passed by, when crossing the Pyrenees weather started to get cloudy until the arrival in ZRH. Nonetheless we have seen some firework from above due to national festivities - Switzerlands 728th birthday.

We arrived 10 Minutes ahead of schedule, parked a remote stand got bussed to arrivals and waited for the baggage - It always takes a long time to wait at ZRH.

Thank you for reading.
