Routing


gdn airside


I had the choice between this super early morning flight or taking a later flight but with an 8H connection in Amsterdam. The decision was rather quick: early wake up call :)

The airport is quiet at that time:

The FIDS with the LOT flight to WAW still on time but you'll see later it won't stay like that.

In fact the Dash went technical and they had to send an Embraer from WAW to pick up the passengers. It meant a 2H delay and many of the connections were lost.
But not my business today since I am flying KLM :)

The agent at the Sky Priority desk checked me in in no matter of time, absolutely no controls of any documents while his colleague at the regular check in checked everything for everyone :)

The red carpet is for the fast track:

I left the hotel at 04:30 and I am airside at 05:01. Impressing!

Conclusion

The flight was nice so is the E-90 cabin, the crew was very charming and took great care about us.

Breakfast was nice but it is more or less always the same thing.

GDN is a small but smart airport, I really like it.

I liked the lounge because it was quiet and modern but the food wasn't adequate.

Nothing to say about AMS who did more than its job.

The last part of this report is coming soon, the next series won't be on KL, I promise :)

    Thanks for the report.

    Non, niet, no, nein, NEVER:

    Haha...same here :-)
    (do you mean the Dutch word niet? In this case you would more likely use nee (no) or nooit (never))!

    Those meals are so boring/bad/repetitive.

    Have a good Sunday, Dani
