a business trip and a holidays for me!


Hello everyone and welcome to this series of a few days in Prague, where my partner was on business trip, staying at the hilton… So why not crushing in?! XD
I had to book my seperate flights of course but the rest was paid off! The best holidays XD 


We will see it but this trip is actually something to remember as it was the first time I flew on an A320NEO and B737Max8… during the same travel!
My partner flew BA on both ways, I went for U2 on the way out and CSA on the way back, as a Flying Blue member I wanted to take advantage of the free checkin luggage policy to bring wine; and also because it was just about 10eur more expensive than Easyjet. 


Routing


I used to print my own boarding passes, but this was before the time since I have been using their app.

at london - gatwick airport


Arriving a London Gatwick North terminal, where Easyjet now only operates, as well as some others like TUI and Virgin Atlantic. The terminal itself is ok, it is just a bit of a pain to get there as there some extra walking and taking the shuttle from the train station, located at the South terminal.

the famous duty free…

And the boarding happened with Easyjet priorities and by row groups.

The safety card… The safety procedures explained in the old fashion way by the crew.

After a short taxi from north terminal we reached the 26L runway edge with a glorious rainy british weather!

and the take off…
This is really at take off the first time on an A320Neo that you can realise how quieter the engines are!! The goold old CFM56 found on some A320s really sound like a hoover after this experience!

The flight schedule was about 2hours but effectively it was a bit shorter… we didn't queue much at gatwick, and soon after we were altready at our cruise altitude.

This is when the service started. I didn't get anything from the BOB, at least I don't remember doing so. I find the prices a bit high even for soft drinks..

The destinations of Easyjet, even though the period when U2 was quickly expending, the network is still impressively vast.

Landing was very smooth and we arrived at pier B, of terminal 1, usually where non shenguen  flights arrive.
I am sorry for the poor quality of the picture, there were a lof of light reflections on this glass panel!

Conclusion

Easyjet: My first flight on an A320, which is always appreciated!
The cabin was brand new, the plane really quieter. I remember the service was extremly professional, not sure if that was a Neo thing?

LGW: A bit hectic to go to the North terminal as usual, the food court was crowded but at least a lot of services available

PRG: very efficient airport.
