After a night at the Vilnius Airport's Hotel, it's time to fly back to Paris. Because all flights between Vilnius and Paris were too expensive, we decided me and my friend to buy 2 different tickets with a stop at Kiev (we save up to 100€). At the beginning the flight was scheduled to be operated by a B737-400 but UIA withdrawn them a bit earlier. We had finally a B737-500 winglets which is also great. After my breakfast, I went to get my boarding pass and went back to the hotel to join my friend and to take my backpack (that's the advantage to have an hotel next to the airport).

Everything happened quickly, today will be a boarding by bus, but our plane is parked a bit far away from the main terminal. This is very good, because it allowed me to take nice pictures of our plane. When we arrived to the stairs, we enter quickly into the plane. The cabin full up quickly. When the boarding was completed, we started to taxi for taking off.

The seat is fine, but the pitch is tight, but anyway for an hour flight that would be fine. One's seated, the boarding was closed and the crew made the safety demonstration, the pilot started the engines and we were ready to go. The take off was correctly made.

Because the flight was short, we climb quickly (like the flight between Minsk and Vilnius). The entire of the cabin was quiet and most of passengers were sleeping. The service was only a tour with some drink to purchase. Nothing really interesting, because I already got my breakfast.

The descent rapidly started, when we arrived into the Kiev's surroundings I was able to see my first rainbow air-to-air. We need a first time for everything. Landing at Kiev was fine, I was really surprise to see how change the airport. Last time I've been to Kiev was in 2010 to fly to Crimea. After to be arrived at the airport, we need to go to the transit area to go to our plane's gate. The next episode on the next Flight Report.

Comfortable cabin, but a tight pitch. But nothing special.

A crew a bit cold, which was limited to the drink service (to purchase).

Limited, view out the porthole, the onboard magazine and the safety card.

Nearly no-service, with only a drinks service (to purchase).
