Welcome to the 4th report from my latest series covering a holiday trip to Greece. Here is the full flight plan:
23.08.2019 - WAW-ZRH - LO 411, E-195 23.08.2019 - ZRH-ATH - A3 851, A-320 31.08.2019 - ATH-VIE - OS 804, A-320 31.08.2019 - VIE-WAW - OS 631, DH4
Stopover in Vienna
Before the main flight report, I would like to show you some photos from my day-long stopover in Vienna that heppened to be a very warm, sunny and nice summer day. It is very easy to reach the city centre from the airport that is situated very near and connected by a frequent train service. There are special direct trains and local trains that cost much less and need just a couple of minutes more to reach the city, so don't waste your money and take the local train as we did thanks to our friends that spent some time in Vienna in the past and knew the trick.
It is useless to write here about widely known Vienna highlights. Having just one day limits your possibilities to minimum and as we had already been to Vienna twice, we chose just a long walk trough the old town with several stops for local specialties as wiener schnitzel or sacher torte.
Impressive cathedral and streets of the old town
I love these traffic lights
and the best Sacher Torte with coffee in Mozart Cafe
After a short train ride we were back to the airport for our final flight back home.
It's OS nest
VIE is not my favourite airport as it has quite limited spotting facilities, anyway we are not staying here for long
and a classic 767-300
WE fly a Q400 today, that's certain
After a relatively long bus ride we reach our aircraft
This time our seats are in the very rear of the cabin, while the front business section had every second seat blocked for the pax comfort
Take off after a short taxi. The engine steals a part of the view.
Shortly we are overflying Bratislava with a great view of the city and BTS airport with crossed runways
Traditional OS service in Y with beverages + sweet or salty snack. OS serves two different types of beer (Gosser and Ottakringer) and the flight attendants asked which one they prefer, offer one of a kind to me and another one to my friend. They will come back later to ask which one was better in our opinion. This 2-girl crew was generally very nice and in great mood that day.
Overflying Tatra mountains on Polish - Slovakian border
Descending to WAW
Short finals and landing
LOT 787 on our way to a remote stand
My seat and cabin during deboarding
and LH A320 on our way to the terminal
Waiting for the bags
Many thanks for reading and many great flights and reports in New Year! :)
Vienna - VIE
Warsaw - WAW
I'm not a big fan of turboprops but I enjoyed this flight mostly thanks to a very nice and attentive cabin crew. I saw how difficult it is to serve hot meals in J while everything is prepared in the rear galley. OS in general leaves an impression of a very nice and client-oriented company.
