I didn't expect the airline would be defunct while writing these reports. Moreover, russian report had been written before the airline ceased its operations. It means we have a deal with the material which may be considered as a historical one. Let's start, 2 reports more in this series!
Departure from Bergamo airport
Milan was a transit city in my voyage so I didn't have an opportunity to spend there much time for sightseeing. Probably it's worth to come back and to see more. Right now we'll have a look of Bergamo airport. To reach it, just pay 5 euros and you're in. Buses depart from the railway station Milano-Centrale.
That was my first time there. It's naive to expect something extraordinary if you go to the low-cost airport. But I think this is necessary to place some seats in the common zone..Unfortunately, I arrived to BGY earlier and it was too difficult to find the space for seating even in cafes. That's not a good deal.
My check-in desk was 20th. I got a single letter from BMI Regional for mobile check-in where I accepted my seat. The agent at BGY told me I would print the boarding pass for LH flight to Moscow at MUC. Practically it didn't matter but that's a bit strange fact to my mind when LH cooperates with the airline and sells the tickets for BMI flights but doesn't give the passes for all segments.
Here's a big number of calibrators, actually I'm not used to see such pictures:)
Check-in started 2 hours before the departure time and then as usual I went next..
The view of subway close to the terminal building:
More interior views:
Here's seen that BGY is a typical base of Ryanair. Moreover, there were some jet bridges, I always had the opposite point..
It seemed you had everything for the spotting: nearly situated runway, good weather, not the worst glasses of BGY's building. However I didn't manage to catch the planes normally:(
Soon I saw our plane, no delay was remarked.
The boarding started immediately after the plane had arrived on the stood.
One more FR's plane:
Flight BM1746 Bergamo-Munich
That was our plane. Basically I wouldn't have amazed if you hadn't heard about this type. I learnt about this model while booking these flights. Amazing! Almost everybody took the photo with this "baby". Who knows when you'll fly on E135 again:)
An overview of the local apron:
37 seats with 2-1 configuration..That's the view you'll see after coming in.
My seat was 12A. It looked as a big chair:)
The panels and luggage compartments looked old-fashioned:
The pitch was also comfortable but such claims can't be fully relevant in case of 45-minutes flight..
Safety card and the airline magazine are available for using.
That feeling you'll hear the engine roar all the flight..)
Amazing fact but we left BGY 2 minutes earlier.. Frankly, new experience for me.
Firstly I went to the lavatory. Here this room is the end of plane's aisle so the only kitchen is situated in front part of the cabin.
As the entertainment you may use the airline magazine, here there're pages with the fleet description and destinations map:
Probably you may forget about your report, your planes for the next day because of seeing such views and just enjoying the flight on this small plane.
Suddenly the only stewardess on board began the voyage with the snack packs. My seat was close to the tail so I got some nuts with juice while the plane was descending to MUC.
Somebody leaves the plane for taking large hand luggage, somebody just goes to the cockpit. As usual, nothing special.
Arrival to Munich airport, T2
My way to the terminal starts with the bus travel.
Inside the building..
Apparently, LH transit centre "found" me itself. There I decided to obtain the paper version of my boarding pass..
The automat worked normally, I hadn't found any problems in its work.
I didn't see any reasons for staying at zone G hence I went to the upper level for passport control passing.. The third time I had a look of this BMW(previously at FRA and HAM).
Last views for this report. It's worth to emphasize the atmosphere is quite pleasant at this airport.
Here I put a dot, the last part will be dedicated to MUC's departure zones description and the moments of Munich to Moscow flight. Thank you for reading!
Bergamo - BGY
Munich - MUC
BMI Regional was(unfortunately) too sweety and pleasant airline, I was too glad of having that experience with them. E135 is rare jet, I catched a huge luck. I think you've just seen everything, nothing to add.
