EAP BASEL MULHOUSE FREIBURG


Welcome to a quick trip to Budapest with my parents. This was their Christmas gift.

I did not look to far to chose the flights since EasyJet flies directly to BUD once a day (pre-COVID) with very good flight times and also a good price. Per person, the price was 50€, plus 40€ for speedy boarding and emergency exit seating.

The drop off was quiet that Friday late morning:

It's a beautiful morning to fly:

At that time, there wasn't too many people:

On the Swiss side there was a bit more people:

Conclusion

The flight was ok. I prefer the slim seats on the A320 vs the old one aboard the A319 but for this kind of short flight it is more than ok.

The crew was nice, I would appreciate if U2 could offer a bit less junk food and more healthier options in their BOB.

As usual, thank you very much for reading.
