Together with a fellow flight-reporter we decided to catch a 5th freedom flight this summer. With the pandemic, a few Asian airlines have rerouted their otherwise direct flights with stops in order to have a better load factor.
We went for SQ that routes their flights to and from CPH via FCO.
Given the early start and the late return, I opted not to disturb my parents and take my car instead. Parking cost for two days in the garage parking was 29€
A bit early for me that morning :)
I love "my" airport:
Covid test area:
Not that much activity that early in the morning:
After a quick check in (boarding pass can't be obtained online during the pandemic as the sanitary pass needs to be checked) and an also quick security check, I am in front of my gate:
Boarding started on time, priorities were enforced:
The purser greeted us warmly, here's the cabin. I find the E75 seats super hard vs the E90 and don't like them at all. Too hard, not comfortable.
We were treated with a glass of water and a cookie as a welcome:
On time push back:
I'll present this E195-E2 in a report in a few days:
A very nice bird:
Line up and take off:
The best seat on earth:
This is just magic:
A last one:
Curtains are pulled:
Breakfast is served in this box, during pandemic it is appropriate, the problem is that this box has always been in use on Cityhopper flight and is also now used on board KL mainline European fligths, no matter the distance. Meaning you'll get that if you fly from AMS to IST, on a 3+ flight.
With the drinks:
Top of descent:
Pax bus to the terminal:
The flight did its job, on time departure and landing, in flight food was ok, i don't like the box that has no premium feeling.
The seat itself is too hard and not comfortable.
Stay tuned for the next reports to come :)
