The airport was quiet at that time:

I had 5H to kill here and decided to see if I could use the Non Schengen lounge that has loungers instead of the chairs and is far more comfortable. It wasn't a problem to clear police controls, I just had to explain why I wanted to go to this zone.

The lounge is pretty empty:

I just had a coffee and water for the time being:

It's a nice place but mind, it is non smoking :)

The blue restaurant has never been a success and seems to be indefinitively closed:

I then had a soup and two profiteroles, which were good:

An hour before it I made my way to the Police controls to go back to the Schengen area.

The bus was only loaded with 25 pax to respect social distanciation, a good thing:

There was an equipment swap and again, those E-75 dreaded seats:

I was the sole passenger in Business class.
A bit of Embraer Spotting :)

Conclusion

The flight did its job, however, I really dislike the E-75 because of its seats.

The catering is more or less always the same on KL, begins to be boring. Time to change :)

Nothing to say about AMS and EAP, they also did more than their job.

Thanks for following me on this series, some more to come soon!
