Routing


I arrived at terminal B and will fly on from this terminal also.

It will be the exact same plane with the same crew. It's absolutely not worth to go to the lounge, the time I would arrive there would already be the time for boarding.

As usual with KL, boarding priorities are enforced and here I am back to my Embraer :

The E75 next door didn't move yet:

The pitch is the same as before but I move a row ahead:

Line up and take off:

The flight only takes 22 minutes and I wasn't expecting the snack box on such a short flight. It was a snack bag instead:

Inside the bag:

It was a delicious cinnamon roll:

I took a coffee with it:

We began our descent into DUS just after a few minutes on cruise:

It was a nice short flight with a roll that made its job as catering.
On the return I took Air France, I'll be able to compare and let you decide which one is the best :)

    Hey Stephan, nice report as always!

    It's absolutely not worth to go to the lounge, the time I would arrive there would already be the time for boarding.

    What? You mean you don't do your grocery shopping in the lounge like some? haha

    It was a delicious cinnamon roll:

    I do love a good cinnamon roll, and it's certainly appropriate for the length of the flight being only 22 min...but the fact KLM don't block adjacent seats on the E-Jets means the only thing standing between the Economy experience and Business class is...a cinnabun 🤣
    ...and a few more miles/XP I guess, but still...

    Thanks for sharing!
