Welcome to this series that will bring me to Marseille for a week-end with my family.
This routing is pretty special to me since it was the last before COVID and a that time, if someone would have told me that it would be my last flights with an HOP! Embraer 145 and that the route between Basel and Orly will be cut the same month for good, I would never have believed it…
Marseille might be our final airport destination, but we are actually heading to the beautiful city of Aix en Provence. We could have travelled by high speed train but the plane was by far cheaper. And we love to fly :)
The weather was absolutely awful, lots of rain and wind that morning.
We used the self service kiosks to print our boarding passes:
The terminal is pretty quiet this morning:
Security was a breeze.
We would board from gate 1:
The white A300 operates for DHL while the white E-190 belongs to WDL and operated a charter flight the day before:
There is a really strong wind and OS needs to do a go around:
Cityhopper as well (you will have to believe me ^^)
But our baby ERJ-145 lands without much troubles.
We boarded on time through the tarmac:
A nice welcome and this is the small but cosy cabin of the ER4:
I really like this jet, the 1-2 seating makes it nice if you travel solo:
My god-daughter not only loves to fly but also loved that plane!
After a second try, KL Cityhopper managed to land:
CHAIR - A319 and TK 739:
A short taxi later:
We gave way to this EasyJet A320:
OS also managed to land and is already departing:
Quick and fast take off, as usual with the ER4:
Some nice views over the airport:
Saint Louis and then Basle:
The seat pitch is good:
So is the recline:
Flying between two layers of clouds:
Snacking with a view:
Below the clouds isn't as nice as above :(
A350 French Bee:
While deboarding, a quick galley shoot:
Stairs to the tarmac:
And our plane. At this time the ground agent shooted a big: "NO PHOTOS!"
And my god-daugther, 10 years old, answered the same way he shouted: "NO PHOTOS, PLEASE!"
I really like the ER4 and sadly that plane has now left the HOP! fleet.
That flight was really nice, nothing to write a home about it but it made the point.
Thanks for reading!
