I was dropped off by my taxi, flat rate 35€, I like when airport taxis have flat rates, that avoids bad surprises.
I had no bags to check in and already had my BP I went straight to the security:
The agents were friendly and despite the crowds, it was fast and efficient.
The duty free zone was endless.
I could have tried the Skyserv lounge with my Priority Pass card but decided to try another one:
Not the LH lounge:
Nor the Aegean lounge:
But the Goldair lounge:
They also welcome AF/KL.
goldair lounge - ath
The welcome was friendly and my PP was quickly scanned together with my BP. The lounge was pretty quiet when I arrived.
There are windows but the view isn't that impressive.
The "cold" offer:
Cakes and croissants:
I just had a cappuccino and some fruits:
The toilets were clean:
back in the terminal
An hour before the flight, I leave to the gate.
As it is a paxbus that will bring us to the gate, I needed to go down:
They boarded Speedy Boarding and family in one bus, that is a really nice touch.
Our plane was docked at Terminal A:
We had to go up the stairs to the plane jetway:
In the jetway:
The crew was friendly in welcoming us, it was a long time since my last EasyJet flight A319 with the old seats:
I had an emergency exit seat and had an aisle seat, so no inflight pictures :(
The boarding takes ages …
In the meantime I went to the toilets:
The safety card:
The other side:
Front view to the cockpit:
The boarding sequence started at 11:15, I was in the plane at 11:30 and the boarding ended at 12:30… At the end we pushed back 40'' late. We took off and I decided to have a coffee and a muffin inflight:
And I slept a bit until arrival:
LZ-BOO for GP Aviation an old 737-300 from PRN:
I was surprised to get a passport check since our flight was a Schengen flight. On the other side of the windows is the non Schengen arrival with much more people.
It took a good 20' to clear the checks, not a big deal but this shouldn't happen on a Schengen flight.
Goldair Handling Lounge - Main
Athens - ATH
Mulhouse / Bâle - EAP
The flight did its job, at the end we landed only 15' late. The crew was really nice as usual on EasyJet. The BOB was limited but hot ham/cheese toasts and pizzas were available.
ATH was efficient, EAP wasn't so efficient with this stupid passport control.
The lounge was nice, a good place to wait.
Thank you for reading and following this series!

Wow from A3 J to EZY, that’s a rough transition, haha. At least you had a good seat! The older seats are so ugly though.
I wish EZY would try to do a row or two of J with neutralised middle seat and just give an item from BOB for free simile to what Vueling tried a few years ago.
Yikes, thanks Covid! I’ve previously has similarly long waits at TLS from Schengen flight to check test or vaccination even though it was already checked several times before boarding. You would think it would go faster now with EU Digital Covid Certificate/Pass Sanitaire
Thanks for sharing !
Thanks Kévin for the comment !
Indeed the transition wasn't great, but at least, an aisle seat, emergency exit covered for most of the pain :)
I also wish Easy would add some Y+ rows with perks like middle seat blocked but I think this is something that will never happen :(
