I am now adding a new airline to Flight Report, Cimber Sterling, born from the buy out of Sterling Airlines by Cimber Air.

After a nice stay in the danish countryside at my niece's paternal family's farm, the two of us had to depart home to Tahiti via Copenhagen, Paris and Los Angeles.

The 180 hectare farm includes 2000 pigs, a christmas tree farm, 2 windmills…

Our first flight is on the lowcost carrier Cimber Air between Billund and Copenhagen.

Checkin is done at the airport's counter but you first have to go to the selfserve kiosk, do not try to go to the counters first, you'll be sent back to the kiosks.

After checkin, we say our good byes to Freja's grand-parents and we head towards the boarding gate.

This is a codeshare flight with SAS.

Boarding is on time and everything goes smoothly, very scandinavian !

We left on time, the traffic in Billund is very light so no wait really.

No service during the flight, the crew will only go through the cabin to check the seat belts, that's all.

We arrived in Copenhagen on time and we have plenty of time to pick up our bags and check them in on the Air France flight to Paris and the next one to Papeete via LAX.
Yet we'll have to walk all the way to the end of the terminal to pick up our bags and then walk back to the other end to check-in ! Thankfully it was summer time and it was beautiful outside as you could only do that outside.

Conclusion

Departed and arrived on time

Our 737 is a lowcost aircraft and it was continuing on to Rome after we arrived. The legroom was minimal.

The service was ultra lowcost too, the crew walked through the plane only twice on the 40 minute flight.

No meal, no drinks.
