We did not need to go landside as we already had printed off our CPH-DUB boarding cards in DUB this morning.
OA260 had to persuade me to leave all that free Carlsberg behind!!!  Smile


So it was then off down to gate A12 where we took the following pictures on the way:



Corridor to Pier A




We went through Passport Control close to the Gate area and made our way to Gate A12 where our aircraft was already on stand.
Gate A12 is the location of one of Copenhagen's webcams, which can be viewed at the following link
CPH/DK/MAIN/Oplev+lufthavnen/Webkameraer/" target=_blank>http://www.cph.dk/CPH/DK/MAIN/Oplev+lufthavnen/Webkameraer/

Our aircraft this evening was operated by LN-RMP, an MD87.


Next to us was boarding a Sterling flight to Dalaman. At this point, it started to lash rain in Copenhagen, becoming very wet & damp outside. We spotted an Austrian Arrows Canadair, Alitalia MD80, Finnair A320, Air France A320, BA A320, PIA 777 and the SQ Mega Ark Cargo 747.






Boarding was due to commence at 17.05, but nobody appeared at the desk until about 15 minutes later. Upon boarding, you are given back your boarding card stub as well as a paper receipt. OA260 and I boarded and I was in seat 21A and OA260 seated beside me in seat 21C. There was some mix up with seats and a passenger or two causing a wee bit of a drama looking for a window seat.

Boarding as follows


Me in my seat, ready to rock and roll back to Dublin:


Once this was solved, we pushed back about 15 minutes behind schedule and the captain apologised for this dealy which was due to "the late boarding of the aircraft". The safety demo was carried out as we taxied to the active runway and there was no other aircraft ahead of us so we had an immediate departure.
headed in a north easterly direction over the Oresunds and banked left into some hazy cloud. About 15 minutes later, we had flown over the west coast of Denmark heading across the North Sea towards Scotland.

There were a lot of both American and Russian passengers on this flight and as per the outbound leg, this return leg was fairly full, about 90% I woud estimate.

The crew on this flight were very nice and stopped by to have a wee joke and a laugh with OA260 and I.
A pic of the crew as follows.


And out over the North Sea


I had a Chorizo salad sandwich and yet another(!) Carslberg, while OA260 was the sensible one and had the same sandwich and a Pepsi as shown!



As we approached Dublin, there was an Aer Arann ATR72 holding, behind which was a Futura 737.
We arrived in Dublin at 7pm....although crew informed us it was in fact 7am!!!! LOL. At 19.07pm we pulled into the gate, 17 minutes behind schedule, alongside an XL 738 to Faro on our left and a BA 737 to London Gatwick on our right. Also on Pier C was an LTE A320 arrived in from Palma and outbound to Lanzarote and a MyTravel heading to Faro.



On Pier B, we spotted a Bulgaria Air 737 boarding to Bourgas, a Karthago A320 heading for Monastir and an Air Dubrovnik heading for Dubrovnik, of course!

OA260 and I waited until the end for one final photo opportunity with the lovely crew!



Back in DUB, we took a few more photos as follows as we disembarked from Pier C.

The new Turkish Airlines desk

A fairly empty Aer Lingus check-in area (a far cry from 6am any given morning!)


Hope you enjoyed this Part 2/2 of our day trip to Copenhagen!
Keep an eye out for some more surprise trips in the future!  Smile and I want to thank OA260 for an excellent trip.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!!
Best wishes,
N272WA

Well done N272WA, I actually had forgotten some of the details of the trip. Everything was brilliant and the one of us with the crew is nice and not often easy to get. Those crew really were the best.

Great report!

Looks like you had a great time, particularly with the never endng supply of Carlsberg. I'm gonna put that on my to do list ova the summer, although I dont have Star Gold so i'll be slumming it in the departure gate with the rest of the rift raft!  Big grin

Thanks again.

Looking forward to the next TR guys!

Brilliant report again, Very enjoyable to read and view.

If only the corridor to pier A at DUB was as nice as the one in CPH!!!

Also, The picture of the A/C Lined up at Pier C at DUB looks great ... as its neat looking, unlike the hulla-bullo of a mess at Pier A and Pier B.

Thanks Again,

AerArann

Excellent TRs gentlemen! Quite the novel idea - to picnic in CPH from DUB as well. One question - I'm presuming that the flight time DUB/CPH is roughly two hours. Am I correct? And by the looks of the food service up front, you'd never see that here in the US! And, were the sandwiches in the back buy-on-board? That's the way of it in the States. One big difference is that rarely you see cabin crew smile here.....

Quite enjoyable read. You must do it again only to a different city in Europe!

Great follow-up to the out bound trip.

- nice to see you had a different plane and aircraft type.

It was the first time we met and also the first time we did a day trip together. We have done day trips by ourselves before though.

Great report! I flew SK in January this year from CPH to HEL on their MD-80 and I thought the service was quite poor. The crew was very polite and did their job well, however, the fact that I had to pay like 2 Euros for a coffe.....  Sad ... didn't make me very happy!


SK's long haul service though is another story. It's much better than their intra-European.

CPH airport is very nice though. It was fun to be there.

Cheers,

Vio

Great to hear you liked our services at CPH! You have by accident caught one of our offices from the outside in the third picture, 1st. floor. You can see the "golf cars" belonging to the unit providing assistance to elderly, disabled, unaccompanied minors etc. parked just below next to gate C8.

Hope to see you again in CPH.

Simon

Hi guys

nice to read and especially 'see' your other part of the day! Big grin It indeed seems that you 2 had fun. And now I know why my local supermarket didn't get any Carlsberg in stock  Wink Anyway,... SK seems to do pretty well on this flight, with handsome crews and that makes just the difference I think! Well done  Smile

To be fair most airlines are going down that road and to be honest its something I have gotten used to . It was actually good to experience both Y and J with SAS and the smiles from the crew were the same in both classes. I really couldnt say anything bad about them .

SAS's C product on intra-European flights have improved significantly in quality after they changed their concept a little in March. In economy is there a buy-on-board, and although you have to pay for food and drinks is the service satisfactory. Remember service is more than just free drinks.

SAS also operate 3-class concept on most intra-European routes with Business, Economy Extra and Economy. There is free food and drinks in Business and Eco Extra, while it's buy-on-board in Economy. Some routes, like intra-Scandinavian routes and typical leisure routes (i.e such as Oslo-Nice) only have 2-class, Economy Extra and Economy, while domestic routes is Economy only (SAS's longest domestic flight OSL-LYR is actuallt 2,5hr)
