Welcome to another translation of my French reports, this time to a week end trip to Istanbul:
KL often has discounted fares called Pack & Go, and I booked one of them to treat my parents to beautiful Istanbul for 4 days. The fare was really great, CHF 209.- per person which is about EUR 160.- for a round trip. As we had vouchers to use as well, the price came down to a bare CHF 69.- per person. Much better than any low cost :)
We have an early departure at 07:10 and this is what could be seen from our boarding area.
Our tinny F70:
A319 ZiziJet :
This is a globemaster C17, sorry could not do any better:
But on the very nice EAP Spotter website you can see it much better:
Boarding was called on time with a SP and a regular boarding lane. Here's the well known cabin with its hard as a rock non reclinable, back nightmare seats. They look pretty nice, but they are a pain for any kind of buts :)
I love the F70, but I hate those seats!!
At least, the seat pitch is good:
Very short taxi and take off in the direction of Mulhouse, not over Basel this time.
As soon as the fasten seat belt sign off is (very early, as always on KL) I pay my usual visit to the lavs to take a global view of the cabin:
The galley map, the galley, the intercom:
Once upon a time there was an oven in that galley:
On Cityhopper only women are allowed to change kids in the lavs:
Soon enough it is breakfast time, I always liked the eggs sandwiches KL used to provide and was looking forward to them. But not this time. We'll get a cheese / jam sandwich… Only dutch people (and LH Catering) can thing about this combination!!
Unfortunately I can't tell you how good this combination is, I never found any trace of the jam, neither my parents did. And how is a bread with a slice of cheese ? Dry, very dry. Even with coffee and OJ it was quite hard to wash it down. The crew will be very nice, though.
In flight shoots:
Beautiful patchwork of colors:
On time arrival followed by a hefty 15 minutes drive. My back was hurting so much at that time, I was hoping to arrive as soon as possible. Parking at the motherfokker land, paxbus to disembark.
Mulhouse / Bâle - EAP
Amsterdam - AMS
As almost usual on that early morning flight, on time departure, bring me the egg sandwich back please! Together with the old blue seats ;)
