I had a good night sleep at the Landvatter Airport hotel and after an invigorating shower and a quick breakfast I walked to the terminal for my early flight.

The terminal was busy with lots of people flying on a Monday, but the security lines moved quickly and soon I was on the other side. Some passengers stopped to check the departure screen for their respective flights.

The duty free shop is strategically located in the middle of the terminal.

Arrived at Gate 12 for my flight. The gate agent was focused on the computer the entire time and hardly looked up except when passengers asked her a question. When it was time to board another agent showed up to assist and boarding was quick and orderly. I noticed that my boarding pass had my AS frequent flyer printed and I asked the second agent to insert the DL one instead. She tapped and paused for a few seconds, then told me that my DL account was entered.

When we boarded we had to go through the ramp and use the stairs to go up to the plane. Thankfully the plane was very close but this would have been horrible under heavy rain. It was just drizzling when we boarded.

A FA was at the door welcoming passengers as they entered the plane. I found out that my neighbor took my window seat and was dozing off. Actually it worked out for me since it was dark outside and I wanted to have an aisle for easy access to the WC.

Take off was uneventful and the FA's started the service with drinks and a sandwich. I think a pastry would be more appropriate for a flight leaving at this time. The sandwich was fine and the box had a nice presentation.




Then I visited the WC and took a shot of the galley.

Most people went to sleep and soon we were getting ready to land in AMS.

Conclusion

This was a short flight and comfort was OK. I was glad that I had an aisle seat for easy access in and out.

The crew was efficient and did their job.

No complaints about the sandwich which tasted OK, but a viennosserie for an early morning flight would have been more adequate.

Flight arrived on time and that is what counts.
