This weekend was pretty hectic for me with 4 flights in 48 hours.
I simply decided to report only the flights from Copenhagen to Geneva for the reason that the return flight might sound unpleasing.
However, in two weeks I am going to do the same routing. Therefor, I was thinking to report the return way.
My routine started by a flight from Copenhagen to Zürich with Swiss Air with an Airbus A320.
I am now used to Copenhagen airport and I am still amazed by how easy this airport is accessible.
I was arriving from Sweden by train and the train station of the airport is located just underneath the Terminal 3. In less than a minute you are in the airport. Super practical for Danish and South Swedish people.
Time to go upstairs in the Terminal 3 of the airport.
The Terminal 3 of Copenhagen airport is for me the best terminal of this airport. The Terminal 3, is the main terminal for SAS airline.
You can see the "famous" statue of Copenhagen airport upstairs in the Terminal 3 watching all the passengers.
Swiss Air check-in and boarding desk were in the Terminal 2.
So I was heading to this terminal, less bright and pleasant check-in area compare to Terminal 3.
But I was impressed to find an aquarium in the airport.
The terminal and check-in desks were busy at this time of the day. I decided to go to the self-register desks to print my boarding passes.
Then, I was going upstairs for the security control.
After all the security controls, I arrived in the duty free area of the airport. One of my favourite, with many different café, boutiques, restaurants, and so on. Moreover, it is modern and clean.
My boarding gate was in the A section (A14)
During my walk toward my gates I spotted some SAS aircrafts. 3 ATR-72, 1 Airbus A320 with a retro livery and one EuroAtlantic. This airport is spotter-friendly
Boeing from Jettime
Apparently Copenhagen airport as some development plans with new gates. (look carefully the new extensions are transparents)
Waiting for my plane.
Checking if the previous flight from Zürich was on-time. It arrived with 8 minutes delays.
Meanwhile I was spotting
Aircraft approaching. Machines and ground staffs ready.
And then our Airbus A320 arrived
I was seating at the perfect place to spot the aircraft.
EuroAtlantic. First time I saw this airline
Afterwards, I headed to the boarding area of the A14 gate
Boarding. First the Business passengers and then passengers seating at the back of the aircraft.
I was seat 36B.. so unfortunately no good window pictures during this flights.. I tried to change my seat the day before the flight, but the flight was full so no other option this time.
And then my seat… I was more than disappointed about the leg-room in the back rows of the aircraft… I am not a tall guy (1m80 - standard high I would say) and I had barely place for my legs… Even on my flight with Ryanair (link below to compare), I had more leg-room.. So it was a big disappointment. You can imagine that the flight was very long since it was uncomfortable.
Afterwards, the captain announced that we were going to be even more delayed because of the wind and turbulence over Zürich airport. We left the gate with 35 minutes delays.
While we were ready to leave on-time, the flight attendants served their traditional SWISS chocolat. Very good.
Heading to the runway.
Take-off from Copenhagen.
Very cloudy flight.
In-flight entertainment: the flight magazine and the inflight Duty-free, the little TV to follow our trajectory and time to destination (I really like it). Plus at the end of the flight they announce with a plan of the airport, the gate of the aircraft and all the gates of the other connections. It helps to gain time for the short connections.
In-flight service. In addition of the chocolat at the beginning, we had a typical Swiss pastry with a beverage.
Then we started our descent towards Zürich. It was a bouncy approach.
After this first flight, I had a connection towards Geneva.
I will publish the report between Zürich to Geneva just after this one.
Time to wait for the next flight.
Copenhagen airport is as always a very convenient airport.
The flight was not as good as I was hoping. The leg room was tight and uncomfortable. Even on Ryanair I had a better leg room. One advice concerning the seats on Swiss Air, take a seat in the first rows of the aircraft. You will see in my next report from Zürich to Geneva that the leg room is way better at the front.
