Stockholm/ARN and the 737-600 for the first time

Hej, hej, dear readers,

Sweden during midsummer, that sounds not bad, isnt it?.
With my special preference for the Scandinavian countries, I´ve thought not that long and booked these trip to Stockholm.


1.)
Tuesday, 24.06.2008
STR (Stuttgart-Echterdingen) - TXL (Berlin-Tegel)
Duration: 55 minutes

Service LH 287 operated by Lufthansa Boeing 737-500 D-ABJI
Scheduled: 06.50 // 08.00
Actual: 07.15 // 08.10
Gate: 114 Seat: 21A
Load factor: 95%
Fare: 47,29 EUR per LH leg

History:
31.10.1991: Delivered to Lufthansa
Leg no. 24 on the 735 and the first on this machine

Monday evening, once again time to try online check-in for my flights the next day.
Four legs ahead, one, two and four ok by LH´s website, but not leg three.
A try at SK´s website fixed the problem, dont ask me why.
06.30 am was the printed time for boarding, present at the airport around 06.00 am.
Also today, security at T1 was busy with long lines and once again no time to wait at T3.

STR early morning:

Boarding by a finger in T1, some construction work there, only limited space and seats at my gate.
T3 is much more comfortable nowadays.
Nearly ontime the gate was opened and I´ve walked down the airbridge to a "new" B737-500 for my log.

Close up:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/ARN08/ARN08003.jpg

Three friendly females on this machine. The cabin in good conditions with dark grey leather seats, comfy, and good legroom.
Today was the last Berlin parliament meeting ahead to the summer vacation periode, so let me call this flight the
"Member of parliament-shuttle" with nearly half the plane separated for biz class.
A friendly welcome from the flightdeck on the ground, the pilot wished us all together a nice flight.
Cockpit crew was from Germany.
Departure from runway 25, the usual route to ERF and LEJ.
Some turbulences while we passed a strong wind area at 30.000 feet. Detailed explanations from the captain.
Cruise level 34.000 feet.
Free drinks on offer.
Approach into TXL was very long and slow, it seems once again heavy traffic there.
Touchdown on runway 26R slightly behind schedule.

TXL with nice weather:

And again:

Apron deboarding and by bus to the terminal, we had to wait some minutes in the bus till we´re allowed to enter the baggage reclaim area,
filled up with pax from earlier flights.

TXL (Berlin-Tegel) - ARN (Stockholm - Arlanda)
Duration: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Service SAS Scandinavian Airlines SK 2678 operated by Transwede Avro RJ85 SE-DJN
Scheduled: 09.35 // 11.05
Actual: 09.55 // 11.25
Gate: D70 Seat: 16A
Load factor: Around 70%
Fare: 51,07 EUR per SK leg

History:
13.05.1993: Delivered to Crossair
31.03.2002: Further to Swiss
01.11.2005: Now with Swiss European
18.05.2007: Finally to Transwede
Leg no. 5 on the RJ85 and the first on this particular machine

Time to walk a bit around TXL till I´ve passed security again.
My gate was in the terminal extension with one security for all D departures, used for example by Tuifly and else.
No time to wait there and at the gate minutes ahead to scheduled boarding at 09.05. am.
The screens showed some 15 minutes delay, it seems no problem for me.
The OK service to PRG at the gate beneath was cancelled and they called all pax one after the other to the gate for rebooking.
Some of them seems not amused.
Finally my machine arrived and parked on the apron.

And again:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/ARN08/ARN08014.jpg

Two friendly experienced female FAs on this service. The machine fitted with dark grey leather seats, somewhat dirty, low legroom.
A really heavy guy seated in 18B, so I´ve hat a short chat with one of the FA´s and changed to 16A, better this time.
The captain greeted us, from Sweden, but it seems he was born in the balkan states.
"Hi folks, welcome, we´re ready to go, but there is no pushback truck available at the moment, so we had to wait for some more minutes".
Departure finally from 26L, the route leads us east of Rostock, over the baltic sea and further east of Malmoe.

Eastern Germany:

Sweden:

Cruise level 30.000 feet. No free service.
The captain was once again on the speakers in the same relaxed way
"Folks, we´ve entered Swedish airspace now, enjoy the rest of the flight", followed by weather informations for Stockholm.
Touchdown on runway 01L, 20 minutes late and finger deboarding at the new terminal extension building.

Another interesting neighbour:

A long way to walk till baggage reclaim and the exit.
Flygbussarna departed perfectly to the city when I´ve reached the bus stand, SK 179.-- return, acceptable for the nearly one hour drive.

Some pix from my first city visit in Stockholm:

Scheduled: 16.50 // 19.00
Actual: 17.05 // 19.00
Gate: 14A Seat: 22F
Load factor: 100%

History:
15.09.1999: Delivered to SK
Premiere, leg no. 1 on the 736

Back at the airport at around 4.00 pm, time enough to walk again to the recently opened T5 extension.
I like that scandinavian architecture, wooden floor, airy and spacious, not bad.

T5 extension:

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/ARN08/ARN08058.jpg

Further to a new addition into my log, the first ever flight on the 737-600.
Lots of pax around, looks like a good load today.
Ontime boarding, the plane was parked when I´ve reached the airport earlier.

My machine in the middle:

Closer:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/ARN08/ARN08054.jpg

This time one male, two females, all real experienced FA´s.
Dark blue fabric seats, clean, good looking, legroom was ok.
Seating was a surprise, row 22 was 3/2 with me on the right decision 2 seater.
The guy beneath me was also a surprise, but not a positive one, fat and sweaty, a plastic bag with beer cans gave him enough joy to fly today, weird.
Departure from runway 01L, no free service also on this leg.
Cruise level impressive 41.000 feet, from what I´ve read the absolute maximum, via CPH and HAJ to FRA.

Reaching Germany:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/ARN08/ARN08062.jpg

The flight deck crew was from Scandinavia. A short information inflight about route and weather, once more short ahead to FRA with weather and arrivals informations.
Touchdown on runway 25R perfectly ontime.
The captain was at the door and wished us pax a nice day, a good chance for me to ask about a flightdeck pic.

The office:

FRA (Frankfurt-Rhein-Main) - STR (Stuttgart-Echterdingen)
Duration: 25 minutes

Service LH 1358 operated by Lufthansa Boeing 737-300 D-ABXL
Scheduled: 20.25 // 21.05
Actual: 20.40 // 21.05
Gate: A02 Seat: 24A
Load factor: Around 80 %

History:
05.12.1986: Delivered to LH
Leg no. 30 on the 733 and the first on this machine

Time enough to walk to the end of the A pier, some plane spotting there.
And back to my gate some minutes later.
A view to FRA ops showed me D-ABXL on the leg to STR.
A nice surprise, the oldest B733 in Lufthansa´s fleet, earlier arrived at 6 pm from DUS.
Bus transfer.

Oldie boarding:

And again:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/ARN08/ARN08067.jpg

The cabin fitted with dark grey leather seats, clean and well maintained, legroom was ok.
Ask someone non-aviation interested, they surely cant believe that this machine is nearly 22 years old.
Three friendly female FA´s on this service.
I´ve boarded late and once again my seat was taken. A short discussion and I´ve secured the window again.
A friendly welcome with detailed informations on the ground from the flightdeck. The crew was from Germany.
The pilot announced ten minutes to wait till start up ATC clearance.
Departure from runway 18. Once more informations short ahead to STR.
No route or flightlevel details, no service on this leg.
Touchdown on runway 25 perfectly ontime.

Technical problems?:

Bye-Bye:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/ARN08/ARN08071.jpg

Bus deboarding and once more on the way back home with a short night ahead.

Friendly crews both on LH and SK, interesting metal, especially the cute 736, but also the oldie 733.
Good fares and a real interesting city, visited for the first time.
So all together a good day, no problem to fly LH and SK again.

Comments welcome,
Markus (FLIEGER67)

Hi Markus,

Thanks for a great read, and especially for including the photos of Stockholm as I'm visiting there for the first time in 3 weeks! I've heard it's a beautiful city and your pics certainly bear that out.
Doesn't the Avro look the business in the SAS livery, especially with those red engines?! Shame there's not the onboard service to match the looks. Ah well.

Glad you had a good day out.

cheers, Khaleej777

both times the best available option!

nice report, good pics, and good aircraft mix that day!
Getting on a 733 even gets harder now..., since KL is retiring them now one by one.

I'll see if I've some time in 3 weeks, when I visit Stockholm for work. According to my schedule it should be possible to do some sightseeing, although I might have to join some meetings during daytime as well.

Hi Markus!

And again a very nice report with some really interesting flights.
For me it is always nice to see some LH legs, as this still is my 'love in the air'

Congrats in catching the 736, quite a rare aircraft and not used much in Europe.
Also covered once in my log on the OSL-AMS stretch ( jumpseat cockpit )
With a different aircraft though (LN-RCU)

This bird already covered twice in my log!  Smile
Great to have her covered, as I would think the -XL will be retired as one of the first 733's.
I fully agree on you that she still looks very nice at the inside.

Also some great city pictures included in your report.

Thanks for sharing again!
Hope to read more soon.

Hola Markus!

Tuesdays have come back!  Big grin

Great to see some pictures of Stockholm; my last visit was back in the 80s and I remember it as a great city.

Flying the 737-600 must be a unique experience, I did not know there were any in service in Europe. I have mostly flown 737s with KL, and I do not recall flying this particular version.

Salut!

If most of your 737 trips were on KL, then you probably didn't fly the -600.
KL operates the 733, 734, 73H, 738 and 739.
The 736 is in Europe only used by SK and MA. Also TU operates them to several European destinations.

Hola Joost!

Quoting DALCE (Reply 14):
If most of your 737 trips were on KL, then you probably didn't fly the -600.
KL operates the 733, 734, 73H, 738 and 739.
The 736 is in Europe only used by SK and MA. Also TU operates them to several European destinations.

Cheers,
Joost ( D-ALCE )

Danke!

Adios

Yes, you are right.... the three UX 737-600s were transferred to SAS in spring 2004, according to airfleets.net.... I may have flown one of them between BCN and MAD.... but I did not use to write the planes down then.

Thanks anyway. Big grin

Enjoy your time in Sweden!  Smile

Salut,

Roger

Hi Markus as usual another great TR, although I wish you would stop giving me idea's for more places to visit(well the girlfriend wants you to stop it, I say carry on!)  Wink The last time I was at ARN was Feb 88 so I think I'm due another visit! How far in advance did you book the flights to get these fares? Is the 737-600 a regular on this flight do you know? Looking forward to the ZRH TR!

Hello and thanx for the bunch of nice replys.

Quoting Airbuseric (Reply 11):
Getting on a 733 even gets harder now..., since KL is retiring them now one by one.

True, when I´ve checked my list, seven months or around 60 flights since the last one.

Quoting Airbuseric (Reply 11):
when I visit Stockholm

If it´s possible, a interesting place for some nice views

Quoting Airbuseric (Reply 11):
When you wanna book, let me know, as I'm interested enough to join on a , e.g. LHR-AMS leg

No question!


Joost:

Quoting DALCE (Reply 12):
LH legs, as this still is my 'love in the air'

Some more, AT42, CRJ7, B735 and the B463 on schedule the next time

Quoting DALCE (Reply 12):
Congrats in catching the 736, quite a rare aircraft and not used much in Europe.
Also covered once in my log on the OSL-AMS stretch ( jumpseat cockpit )

I remember your story, for sure.

Quoting DALCE (Reply 12):
This bird already covered twice in my log!
Great to have her covered, as I would think the -XL will be retired as one of the first 733's.
I fully agree on you that she still looks very nice at the inside.

Still not a rare bird here on A.net, good to log it anyway.

Tuesdays have come back!

Tuesdays gone difficult the next time.
My companys CEO fixed a 8.00 am board conference every Tuesday from next week on.
So I´ve cancelled my trip to Bornholm next Tuesday, but still will do the ZRH trip on the 15th.

Quoting Rogerbcn (Reply 13):
Flying the 737-600 must be a unique experience, I did not know there were any in service in Europe

Hard to catch nowadays.

And special thanx for the further 736 informations.

Best regards,

Best wishes to the girlfriend, not that easy to stop the aviation enthusiasts and especially the Saab interested from a trip to Sweden!.

Quoting SAAB900 (Reply 18):

Booked exactly four months in advance, cashed the EUR currency advantage between the $ and the NOK.

Quoting SAAB900 (Reply 18):
Is the 737-600 a regular on this flight do you know?

Scheduled during the summer timetable on most of the ARN-FRA flights.

Quoting SAAB900 (Reply 18):
Looking forward to the ZRH TR!

Original schedule was STR-TXL-ZRH-DUS-STR but due to private reasons,
MiniFlieger goes in concert with the school band in the evening, I will return from ZRH by train.

I see you're still taking to the skies Markus!! Big grin

Nice that you got to fly the 736. I have to say that it was probably a bit easier for me...I caught an SK 737-600 OSL-LGW a few years ago on the return leg of one of my Norway trips. It wasn't even planned, but was a nice surprise! Shame that SK no longer flies the OSL-LGW route.

I'm sure you'll keep the reports coming...but apologies if I don't pass any comments, my fingers can only cope with so much typing!!  Wink Big grin

Thanks for the report.

Andy.

Hi Markus,

A daytrip to Sweden mid-summer is a great idea and Stockholm looks a very impressive city. Seems you weren't so lucky with you seat neighbours this time round though.......  Wink

Love the RJ85 in the SAS livery, looks ever so cute, yet I'm surprised that they don't offer a free inflight service.

Yep, have to agree with Sandro!

Happy flying
