We headed to Barcelona El Prat Airport with our own car and parked it in the T1 parking because of a great deal AENA was offering for parking.
T1 is modern and clean. We went to the Baggage Drop Off area for Vueling and the line was very long. We had to wait for half an hour until we were able to drop our baggage. It wasn't a great start.
After clearing the security control, we headed to our gate B47 where our plane was already waiting for us. Boarding process was quick and painless.
Our plane was EC-LVO, which had sharklets in its wings and was just an year old.
The cabin was just as any A320 of any regular european airline, rather boring without PTVs and with limited legroom.
We pushed-back shortly after boarding the aircraft, and we taxied to the runway for about 20 minutes, we were ready for take-off.
Here's a detail shot of the sharklet that this A320 had. I guess it has the same function that the winglets have on the B738.
We quickly reached cruising altitude and we were ready for our 3h 30min flight.
The service onboard was just average, they served some snacks, sandwiches and drinks, didn't order anything as the flight wasn't too long and everything was pretty expensive. The flight went quite smoothly.
We started our descend into Oslo Gardermoen and the captain announced that we would undergo some turbulence. I didn't even notice the turbulence so I guess it wasn't too strong.
We landed on time exactly at 15:30. After disembarking the aircraft, I couldn't resist taking some pictures of our aircraft in Oslo.
Baggage drop off in Oslo Airport was really quick. We quickly got to the train station without any problem, very well organized indeed.
Barcelona - BCN
Oslo - OSL
The flight was just average. Regular A320 with limited legroom, no PTVs, as any low cost european airline. Crew members were helpful but looked pretty young and inexperienced. Barcelona airport is really comfortable although T1 is enormous. I would try to fly other airlines before Vueling but in case it's your only option, go for it. It is just as any low cost airline currently operating in the aviation industry.
