After some great holidays on the Canary Islands it was time to head back home.
Check In was quick and friendly at a dedicated Sky Priority counter.
Security was also a breeze this morning and soon I had a quick breakfast at the 'Sala Galdos' VIP lounge that Air Europa uses here at Las Palmas. The lounge interior is very old fashioned and food selection limited. However there is a great outdoor terrace with excellent apron views.
On the way to my boarding gate I had a nice view of this Edelweissair Airbus waiting to bring back holidaymakers to Zurich.
Boarding started on time and via two jetbridges. The Business Class cabin of this Airbus 330 definitely was quite old fashioned and showed many signs of age. Nonetheless it was of course super comfortable for this medium haul flight of 2 hours 20 minutes up to Madrid.
The Business Class cabin ended up fully occupied. Once boarding was completed, newspapers and pre departure water or juice were offered.
We departed with a delay of ca. 30 minutes due to traffic restrictions over Spain due to thunder storms.
The inseat entertainment programm was not activated on this short flight - it only showed some short cartoons & airshow map.
However this plane also featured entertainment streaming on your personal device with a good selection of movies etc.
This was the only Air Europa flight where no refreshing towels were offered. About 50 minutes after departure a warm breakfast & drinks were offered from the trolley service. This was accompanied by a selection of warm different bread from a basket.
The rest of the flight was very relaxing - sitting in comfortable longhaul Business Class seats and enjoying some entertainment streaming :)
We landed in Madrid with a delay of ca. 30 minutes and parked on a remote position for disembarkation via stairs & buses.

A very nice and comfortabel medium haul flight in retro style longhaul Business Class seats. Air Europa really offers some nice Business Class experience on such Spanish domestic flights.
