Hello and welcome to my report of an EasyJet flight from Naples to Vienna. This is the return flight from my holiday in Italy with sunny weather and rather warm temperatures (at least compared to Austria). I even enjoyed a last swim in the ocean on a sunny day, but now I is time to fly back to Vienna, with it's cool temperatures. The following is my itinerary:
5.11.2017 / NAP-VIE / EasyJet / EZY4851 / A320 / Economy ~ You are here
I arrived quite early to the airport by rental car.
From the car-return a shuttle bus should depart every five minutes. However, a lot of people were waiting for the minibus, so I decided to just walk to the airport. In the end, this took me 6 minutes and the shuttle did not overtake me.
As Naples airport is rather small with oly 6.8 million passengers in 2016, it only has a single terminal.
A few shots of the interior. I am not sure when the airport was modernised, but at least it is quite well maintained.
I had to check in a bag at the check-in counter. Again, nobody was in front of me, so I was finished in less than five minutes.
My flight on the FIDS, with gate not fixed yet.
After check-in I immediately proceeded to security. There was no line again, so it was very swift.
Afterwards, I decided to sit down on a free seat, as the airport was getting fuller. At 17:50, when checking the FIDS, I was quite surprised that boarding had already begun. So, I swiftly walked to my gate for today's flight, A1. Arriving there, however, I discovered that passengers were only let into a waiting zone, probably to speed up the boarding process when the aircraft is ready. The waiting area was tiny and very crowded, so I waited almost until real boarding to enter the zone.
Soon, actual boarding started and I walked to the aircraft, again, on the tarmac. Personally, I prefer this to boarding through a jetbridge, as long as the weather is good. As this flight was in darkness, the photos of the aircraft and later of the outside are not of very good quality.
Our Airbus A320 in EasyJet's new livery. This aircraft was only 1.7 years old by the time of the flight and therefore equipped with the new Recaro seats.
The aircraft's tail.
Fuselage and registration.
Entering the aircraft. As this is a low-cost carrier, passengers are not greated apon entry. A crew member was at work in the galley.
Walking to my seat. Finding a space for my cabin bag in the overhead compartments took a while. Normally, I put my bag under my seat, however, this is impossible with EasyJet, due to the short seat pitch.
Finally at my seat, 21A.
View from my seat.
At 18:28, boarding was completed and we were welcomed on board.
Our neighbor, an EasyJet A319-100.
Soon, safety demonstration followed in English and Italian (I believe it was not in German). Then, we were pushed back.
Then, we taxied almost to the runway. Shortly before the runway, we came to a halt and waited 10+ minutes for some aircraft to arrive, as announced by the captain.
A few minutes prior to take-off, cabin lights were dimmed.
Finally, at 18:58, we aligned with the runway and took off with a delay of 18 minutes.
I tried to do some aerial shots during climb, but unfortunately the quality mediocre, at best.
After some bumps, the seatbelt sign was turned off at 19:18 and cabin lights were turned on again. Generally, this flight was a bit bumpy due to bad weather over central Europe.
Seat pocket contents.
At 19:15, the crew started selling snacks. Again, I did not purchase anything.
Shortly afterwards, I went ro to the rear-most lavatory. It was quite clean.
Soon, lights were dimmed again and we started our descend towards Vienna.
Flying over Vienna.
At 20:17 we landed at Vienna, 18 minutes before schedule.
Last view of my seat.
This is it from this flight, I did not take anymore pictures of the terminal, as I left the gate the same way I arrived in my previous report. I only collected my bag, which arrived very fast and then left the airport by 'airport driver', a taxi service at a fixed fare.
Do not hesitate to leave a comment and stay tuned for new flights in 2018. Thank you for reading!
