Welcome to this new series, I decided this time to translate to English some intra- European flights just to have more variety in the FR English data base. The routing looks like this:


Routing


We arrived by taxi at the airport and funny wise our driver decided to avoid the highway. He only took small roads through villages and finally it was quicker and much more enjoyable.

The airport building is really nice.

gdn - inside


As nice as outside, it bright and airy, there are also some trees inside that bring a nice fresh look.

I really liked the kind of old school FIDS:

Very high ceiling:

WIZZ Counters are pretty empty:

This is a model of the second war museum in Gdansk:

The airport is mostly empty, but the only place where there are lots of people are the LOT counters :(


photo img_1325_resultat

There are only two check in desks opened this morning:

One counter handles priority passengers and at the second the agent seems to be under supervision. It takes more than 30'' to get our bags checked.

The agent seems bit astonished we are only going to WAW. I was a bit angry about LOT as I took a fare that included seat selection to be seated with my mother. But at check in we got new seats: 3D for me, 11D for her. The flight being full, the agent can't (doesn't want?) to do anything. It is not fun but ok for a short 40 minutes hop.

The security is totally empty:

We were at this specific hotel for the long week-end:

Drills are not allowed in the cabin :)

Then concessions are on one side of the airport while the gates are the other side:

The boarding starts on time and there is no priority boarding called. I don't care as I have no status with LOT.

First to board:

A very warm welcome at the door from the very good looking purser. This is the LOT Dash cabin:

The curtain will remain open as there is no business class on domestic flights.

The flight did its job with a very nice cabin crew. The service was minimal but existed which is important.

I loved GDN airport and WAW is functional plus very easy to navigate.
