After 11 days in Budapest and Vienna, I returned to my country, to celebrate our holidays and to be with my family. Doesn't matter, here's my flight report for OS859, flight from Vienna to Tel Aviv.
Aircraft data, day before the flight:
We took taxi from the hotel to the airport, because we were 4 pepole, the taxi price was almost like train to the airport, but I must say - during 4-5PM, when We travelled to the airport, the journey took 40-45 minutes in the taxi, in the train It may take less.
View from the taxi:
Outside view of VIE terminal:
Inside view, during the way to the check in area:
Self check in area:
This was my first experience with self check in service, that included even send our luggage by ourself. I must say that It wasn't complicated and It was very fast. I hope We'll see It soon in TLV airport!
My boarding pass:
I had a lot of time to spend, so I went to the spotting terrace, but first I went to the toilets before:
As You can see, they looked clear, much better than TLV aiport for example…
The way to the terrace:
Some aircrafts models, I saw a lot of them, but I took photos of the specials:
The last stairways to the terrace, before payment (5 euro per person) and security check:
And here some photos from the terrace, which I liked very much: Austrian A321:
Brussels airlines A320:
After 40-50 minutes in the terrace, I returned to the terminal, to finish the security check, the immigration and to spend some time (and money) in the duty free.
After security check:
Duty free area:
I found a really nice aircraft, Air Cairo A320, but unfortunately my camera was in the bag, so I took this photo with my smartphone:
At this time, the camera was ready to take photo, altough the light conditions weren't so good, doesn't matter, this is Finnair EMB190LR:
More photos from the duty free area:
The duty free shops weren't cheap, however, some of the product were much cheaper. For example, I found some cream that costs 200 ILS/INS in Israel, in 25 Euro (112 ILS/INS).
Our gate for today is G12, here's some photos from the gate area:
Boarding by jetbridge:
Austrian Airlines A321-211 OE-LBD, Named Steirisches Weinland In service since December 1998
Window view, Austrian A320:
Legroom was good also:
Some photos during taxi: Austrian A320:
Take off video:
Photo after take off:
One hour after take off, the cabin crew served soft drinks and nice meal:
The meal included: Pasta with cream and mushroom, chocolate mousse, butter, bread, water. The pasta was little dry, but still tasty. The mousse was very nice and not too sweet. The cabin crew also served hot drinks like coffee and tea.
In flight magazine, duty free magazine and safety card:
Some FR24 photos during the flight:
2 hours after take off, I went to the toilet. The cabin crew told me to go to the front toilet, altough the curtain of the business class was closed, It never happend before in any of my flights…
As You can see, even after 2 hours of flight, the toilet looked clear.
Some cabin crew panel, I don't have idea what It is actually doing:
FR24 photos, before landing:

Thank for reading!
Vienna - VIE
Tel Aviv - TLV
Austrian is really nice airline, altough the aircraft was almost 20 years old, It looked very good, It seems that Austrian keeping their aircrafts well maintained. The seats were comfortable, the legroom was really nice, the WC were clear, in German - Alles gut! The cabin crew were really nice also, and gave really good service. The meal was suprise again, because I expected to receive some snack, unlike the meal I got in OS860, this time It was very tasty! There are no overhead TVs, but there's wifi service and some information that You can read in Austrian website without payment, so I reduced the entertainment score. The wifi isn't cheap (3 Euro for 150Kbps, 7 Euro for 600Kbps and 12 Euro for 15Mbps) and It's no so stable, but still It's really nice to have internet connection during flight. This time I bought the middle one, and It worked much better. Vienna airport was amazing again - It's very clear, easy to navigate, the spotting terrace was very nice, the airport isn't too big, unlike big airports like Frankfurt, where after immigration You can't buy even coffee, here You can enjoy from nice duty free shops and also coffee and food area. So, VIE airport really nice airport. Tel Aviv airport was nice as usual, again - It can be cleaner.
