Next stop AMS !
The original routing that will soon be looking much different :)
My layover was a bit more than 4H, so KLM lounge for me, please.
Very nice welcome, the lounge isn't busy at all that Dec 26th:
The cold offering is pretty nice:
Pancakes and co:
Fresh fruits and dairy:
Everything looks nice and fresh but this industrial processed cheese doesn't deserve to be served here. Dutch "real" cheese is much better!
Milk, tomato and betroot (I hate it) juice:
The thing I always liked at the lounges in AMS is that you can make a real mint tea:
I was pretty pleased with my stay at the lounge. The only thing is that there is no place to relax and strech your legs in the Schengen lounge.
Shortly before boarding I went to my gate:
Nothing much to spot. That is my gate:
Boarding was launched on time, we were bussed to the plane. Here is our E90:
I always liked the E90 more vs the E75. The seats are far better and more padded.
The seat pitch is good:
A twin next door:
We pushed back 5' late but the captain informed us that we would have to take the infameous Polderbaan, that will add 15' taxi time. She nevertheless expected an arrival at 01H45 instead of 01H40. It shouldn't be, usually, a big deal, but I only have an hour transfer in Bergen, and I absolutely don't know how transfers are handled there. I read that one has to clear customs and pick up all checked luggages there before going to a domestic flight but also read it wasn't the case anymore.
I also knew that if I would miss my flight to TOS all flights in the next coming three days were fully booked or almost.
To be continued!
In the air:
Leaving the Netherlands:
The typical KL Cityhopper lunch box and its menu:
The bread is served hot, the tuna salad is a nice idea but there is ways to much greens, very little potatoes and I don't see the point to serve a handful of olives as a starter. The mango dessert was excellent.
Starting our descent:
The views are gorgeous:
With the sun set it is even better:
Some last pictures:
A last shoot of the plane while deboarding:
It is now 01:50 and my next flight leaves in 50'. Keeping everything I can crossed :)
The flight was nice but the sold short connection time in BGO makes it quite stressful.
The bad mark for the efficiency in BGO will be explained in the next Flight-Report.
As usual, a big thank you for reading.
