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:
This way up for us:
It's a beautiful morning to fly:
To the departure hall:
At that time, there wasn't too many people:
On the Swiss side there was a bit more people:
Security was quick, there was some work in progress just after it:
We had plent of time to use the lounge since I have a priority pass card to use:
Automated border controls:
Not for us today, we go this way :)
As usual the staff is smilling and welcomes us warmly.
There is a beautiful outside terrace, making spotting really easy. A private Tu214 in distance:
That Saab 340 is also private:
Not too many people outside that morning :)
LH to MUC:
The food offering is nice -albeit more or less always the same for frequent travellers!-:
Breads and pastries:
My morning selection:
Our flight is slightly delayed:
Some birds here:
TK and BA:
Shortly before boarding we went to the boarding gate. There is a Starbucks here :)
Speedy boarding for us:
Our plane arrived minutes later:
Here it is:
TK to IST:
10 minutes after block, boarding starts:
A nice welcome from the crew, this is the old U2 cabin aboard their A319s:
The pitch is good, but is better in their A32S:
And take off:
Sorry the window was not that cooperative :)
U - Turn:
We bought light snacks and drinks:
The flight was smooth:
The lavs are clean:
The rear door:
And we already started our descent and landed:
A good old Tu 154 in distance:
Not jetbridge here:
The new LCC terminal just opened and compared to the old one, it is a brand new world:
This way inside:
It is so much better than the old industrial thing!
The junction between the terminal and the building is not ready yet:
In the terminal:
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.
