Let's continue with some oldies pre-COVID, in order to keep the english data base busy :)

As for the last time, I will not give the complete itinerary now, leaving a bit of surprise :)


Skylounge BSL


No pictures from the airport, you begin to know the EuroAirport as much as I know it. I will then start the report with a bit of spotting from the lounge's terrace. A Metroliner that I have never seen before here:

The service was great, the purser checks that everyone has what he needs, offers twice sandwiches, constantly refills the glasses and finishes the service with the fameous dutch waffles.

    Thanks for this FR Esteban! In my opinion KL serves a solid product on such routes under 2 hours, approximately the same amount of what LH serves but the only reason I normally take LH is the cutlery and the plates, as I think that it's nicer to get those in Business Class. I wonder where you'll bring us with this trip report, even though I have already got a presentimen :)! Thanks again and keep them coming,
    Lars
