Preface



Hello and welcome to my report of an EasyJet flight from Vienna to Naples. This is the outbound flight of my eleven day-long journey to Italy. The routing for this journey is simple and only includes two flights to and from the destination with EasyJet. As for why I chose EasyJet the reason is obvious: They offered the cheapest non-stop flights. The following is my itinerary:

26.10.2017 / VIE-NAP / EasyJet / EZY4852 / A319 / Economy ~ You are here

5.11.2017 / NAP-VIE / EasyJet / EZY4851 / A320 / Economy ~ Click here



For this flight, I took the suburban train line S7 from the city center of Vienna (“Wien Mitte“) to the airport. On week days, this train operates at least every half an hour between “Wolkersdorf“ and “Wolfsthal“ via Vienna and its airport. The ticket costs 3,90€, which is much cheaper than the CAT (City Airport Train), costing 11€ for an adult. However, the S7 takes 23 minutes, while the CAT only takes 16 due to its non-stop service, including city check-in for some airlines. As I generally arrive at the airport early, though, this time difference is no problem for me and, as I flew with EasyJet, I could not have used the city check-in, anyway.

Inside the train. Although not all seats were occupied I decided to remain standing for this short journey.

At 12:44, the train arrived at the airport. Then, I walked directly to gate 1, where today's flight would be departing.

Vienna International Airport



Check-in at counters 151-154. As I was very early, few passengers stood in line and I checked-in my bag, for which I had paid extra prior to the flight, quickly.

Then I immediately continued towards the lounge.

As it was quite packed I proceeded to a more private area, accessible only to card complete customers.

Buffet area. The offerings include a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as different snacks, salads, soups and a warm main dish. Today, the warm dish was chicken with pepper sauce.

After a good meal it was soon time to leave the lounge again and I went to the security screening. Luckily, there was almost no one in line again, so this only took me a few minutes.

Then, I walked directly to the gate and, while I did so, I passed by a number of shops.

My gate for today's flight, C40. A large seating area was available.

As boarding had not started yet, I tried to do some spotting. Generally, VIE is ok for spotting, but some windows have an obstructed view.

The Flight



Airline: EasyJet
Aircraft: A319-100
Age: about 9 years (2008)
Registration: G-EZDB

Seat: 14F
Load: about 95%




At 14:00, boarding began right on time.
photo img_20171026_145657
In the jetbridge, all passengers rows 12 and above were asked to enter the aircraft via the apron to speed up the boarding process. I was quite happy about this, as it made some nice views of the aircraft possible.

Legroom. Still enough for me but far less than on other carriers (I could not fit my bag under the seat, which I normally always do).

Boarding continues with automated announcements welcoming the passengers on board and telling them what to do (not).

At 14:17, boarding was completed and both captain and purser made their welcome announcement. A manual safety demonstration followed.

Shortly afterwards, we were pushed back.

As there was no aircraft in front of us, the engines starred roaring immediately and we took off at 14:34, almost on time.

At 14:55, the surprisingly friendly cabin crew started selling snacks and drinks. Later, duty-free items followed an announcement about the best offers. On this flight, due to the length, I did not buy anything, though the prices seemed rather high.

Nearing Naples.

At 15:35, we started our descent towards Naples and the seatbelt-signs were turned on.

Again some nice views during descent.

At 15:49, we touched down, 26 minutes BEFORE schedule.

Taxi was short and we arrived at our parking position at 15:52.

While waiting, I decided to use the toilets. I was surprised to discover that the toilets were modern and clean.

Then, after claiming my bag I left the airport by taxi.

Cabin: Seats appeared very used, not much legroom due to high-density layout.
Cabin Crew: Surprisingly friendly and efficient.
Entertainment: Just the in-flight magazine, which I found not that interesting.
Meal/Catering: BOB with rather high prices; I can't rate the quality, though.
Naples Airport: Some parts modernised, services not that good.

      Thank you for your comment, RI 777. I always try to write detailed reports and include many pictures, so I am glad you like this report. I had a very pleasant time in Italy and it was even possible to swim in the ocean. Unfortunately, my return flight was at night, so there are not as many pictures as normal.
      Thank you for reading my report!
