Hello Flight-Report Community and welcome to this flight from Keflavik to Riga.
Air Baltic is operateing this route using their Airbus A220-300 aircraft, it would have a flight time of approximately 4 hours and 15 minutes. The A220-300 has a maximum range of 6,200 km, which is more than enough to cover the distance between Keflavik and Riga, which is approximately 2,370 km.
In terms of seating configuration, Air Baltic's A220-300 aircraft are configured with 145 seats in a single economy class cabin. However, it is possible that they could configure the aircraft with a different layout for longer flights like this one.
Arriving at the airport was pretty smooths. Check-In went pretty well at the Keflavik. They should add the signs that are saying is a lift for workers or passengers because we accitenldy went to the worker's lift. Passing the security area and navigating went pretty smoothly except for that lift accident.
We arrived at the airport 2h before so it gave me the time to do some plane spotting.

After DHL A330 departed then I headed back to my gate and arrived back at the gate just some minutes before boarding.

The boarding went pretty smoothly after boarding was completed we started push-back, and the safety video started playing. Taxing was pretty smooth. When we took off there was turbulence but when we left from the clouds turbulence disappears.
Take off the video.
So catering. I had one muffin, a pre-ordered meal that contained: pancakes, fries and chicken nuggets, and a cup of coffee and apple juice. I will recommend pre-order your meal because most of the meals you need to pre-order.
In-Flight entered. Air Baltic offers In-Flight internment: flight map, destination temperature, time and arrival time and you can get an online shop on your phone with their wifi. Cruising was pretty smooth and with some beautiful views. The cabin seats were Comfortable, but tray taple was litttle bit small.
This is the last part of this flight.
When we started descending to Riga it was dark already. When we started descending we had a descending safety video played on screens. Descending was pretty smooth, with no turbulence. The landing was a little bit hard but okay, when we were landing at Riga there was heavy fog. Taxing to the gate was pretty smooth and the same as de-boarding. After de-boarding we went to our next gate which was next to our landing gate.
Here is youtube video.
When considering flying with Air Baltic then I recommend it because from my experience it is worth it. The seats are okay but the Tray table is a little bit small overall Air Baltic is a very good airline and if you want to fly with them then I recommending to fly with Air Baltic.
