INTRODUCTION.



Hi everyone !

Nice to meet you again for a new FR !

Return flight to Luxembourg after a week's vacation on Fuerteventura.

Fuerteventura is served by Luxair with 2 direct flights per week (Thursday and Saturday), without direct competition.
The price makes you react immediately (395 € on the outbound flight and 320 € for this flight for one person !) but it is understandable because Luxair is a tour operator to the Canaries.

This flight will also for me one of the last on a 737-700 of Luxair, indeed the company announced on March 03, 2023 that it was renewing its fleet by 737-8 Max and 737-7 Max more fuel efficient and with lower CO2 emissions compared to the previous generation of aircraft.
 


ROUTING.


The same flight in the opposite direction :

Here's the gate : our plane hasn't landed yet, so I decide to walk around the terminal looking for other planes to spot.

Luxair immediately informed us of this delay by SMS and email.

At the online check-in, a different meal was available for purchase (15 €), for the price, we'll settle for the included meal !

The meal includes : a hot dish of sausages, vegetables and mashed potatoes, a fresh bread roll, an apple and almond "mille-feuille" and a small Camembert cheese from the box.

CRUISE.


As the IFE only offers stupid shows with 10 year olds playing pranks, so I decided to build my plane, which I had bought in Luxembourg on the outward flight.

It's a little Dash Q400 with the breast cancer livery.

Shortly before the descent, the crew offers us a second drink service.

    A very good overall product from Luxair. The seats look very comfortable and much thicker than most seats these days. It's too bad about the Wi-Fi streaming entertainment not working--it seems that happens often. Hopefully it will get better. The star of the show is the free hot meal though, which is so rare on intra-European flights anymore. And yes, with such a decent free offer, I can't imagine many people spend 15 EUR for an upgraded meal.

    Thanks for sharing!
