New Years Eve In Madrid With Korean Air

Hi A.netters.

Last month I was looking for a city to visit during my Christmas holiday. Several came to mind. After checking some flight info I decided to book the KE925 to Madrid.

Shortly after booking this trip I came in contact with A.net user Suryo (Akhmad). He was also going to spend some time in Madrid. Since we where there at the same time, we decided to meet each other. More about that later.

The evening before my departure, quiet some snow fell down. After earlier problems with transportation and traffic congestion I decided get up early and get to the airport well on time. Once on the road, it was made snow free and there was not a single car to be seen. On the airport I’ve made some pictures and settled down at the Starbucks.

AMS Tower. Most footsteps weren’t going any further than this.

Delta planes started to come in.

Blue World.

After finishing my coffee I headed for the check in counters. I was the only one there, and was told there where only 41 pax joining the flight at AMS. Since this flight actually does ICN-AMS-MAD-AMS-ICN. The check in agent was surprised about a system request to check my credit card. Apparently most pax booked a city trip via a travel agent, and did not pay by credit card.

Passport control took me only a minute. Time to take some pictures on airside. The arrival information listed the arrival of my plane at 12:55LT. While departure was listed as scheduled at 13:20LT.

SLM beauty.

While the plane was docking into the gate, the pax where called for the security check. No PAS was used for this. Just a call from the same lady that checked me in.

By this time, the holding area loaded mostly with Korean pax continuing to Madrid.

Empty seat row.

Leg space.
http://img519.imageshack.us/img519/6237/dscf5295.jpg

The seats where fine. Only a cool air vent was missing.

Take-off was short and power full. Like 30 minutes after taking off, meal service began.

Very tasty meat with mushroom sauce. Tasty mashed potatoes and some nice vegetables. Together with a decent salad, a very sweet cake and a little bread roll with butter. Together with this, there was water, a cold drink of your choice and coffee or tea. I took the coffee witch was better than average.

Wing view.

After a nearly two and a half hour flight we touched down at Madrid. The descent was shaky and the ground became visible only like 15 seconds before touchdown.

There was a long walk to the metro station. Down there I bought my 3 day tourist pass, and left for my hotel. I had to change trains twice, once at the beautiful nuevos ministerios station. Before I finally arrived at the Marques de Vadillo station. From there it was a 10 minute walk to my hotel.

Once there I already had a missed call from Suryo.

Atocha railway station.
http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/6839/dscf5357.jpg

All over this day little bags filled with grapes were offered for sale. If only I knew this was part of a local tradition and not a little bag of candy.

After all this I met up with Suryo. Undoubtedly he is going to write more about this. Together we went to the new year celebration and watched the fireworks.

Not the greatest picture, but it represents the ambiance very well.
http://img63.imageshack.us/img63/9195/dscf5375.jpg

No one is looking.
http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/6948/dscf5391.jpg

After this the subway was surprisingly calm. I traveled back to my hotel, and had a good night of sleep.

Since most of Madrid was closed the next morning I went to the airport to have lunch and have a look at terminal 4.

Plaza de Espana subway station.
http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/4175/dscf5396.jpg

Empty line 8 train.
http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/7352/dscf5403.jpg

For check-in I met up with Suryo. Who happened to be on the same flight. Without any arrangements made beforehand. An A.net first?

Having a drink at the terminal.
Really, its because of the plastic.

My ride back home. HL7552.
http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/5688/dscf5434.jpg

The aircraft taxied to far into the parking. Since the parking is slightly sloped, they just let her roll back on gravity force.
http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/3815/dscf5446.jpg

Seat row. The cup holders are great. Only the pax in front of me where very busy, so it was not possible to make proper use of them.
http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/3505/dscf5454.jpg

Upon boarding a diversity of Korean newspapers was offered. No English, Dutch or Spanish newspapers to be found.
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/3327/dscf5457e.jpg

About ten minutes after the bridge was uncoupled, it came back. Some minutes later a Korean announcement was made. Some shocked reactions came from the Korean pax. The English version was hardly understandable. The only thing that came through was traffic congestion and two hours. Off course it was clear that there would be a 2 hour delay. Since a was starting to be hungry I was happy the meal service was offered on the ground.
http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/8995/dscf5462v.jpg

The meal was great again. The meat was the same. The whole was very tasteful. The salad was good and the cinnamon cake was fantastic. So was the coffee again.
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/5374/dscf5464.jpg

During the waiting we were accompanied by a FR plane. I was so happy I was enjoying dinner on some more comfortable seats. I can imagine the misery those pax were going through.
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/3692/dscf5467g.jpg

Good for them this beacon light already lighted up halfway our delay.
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/9172/dscf5472.jpg

After one and a half hour we left for our long taxi ride. Leg space was fine again.
http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/8716/dscf5474x.jpg
http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/7360/dscf5476.jpg

After this it was to dark to make pictures. The flight went over very fine. I enjoyed being on board.

I hope you enjoyed reading my report.

Tim,

hi Tim,

Great report, and as I mentioned already to Suryo, it's great to meet up with other a.net members. Haven't meet much of the Dutchies yet, but maybe in a future travels...

KE seems very nice, and definitely the best choice out of AMS for MAD. (e.g. like LA on FRA-MAD). The A330 looks boring though, not my choice to fly on a ICN bound flight.

Madrid is a nice city for a few days. Not my personal choice for a second visit though, since I think other cities are offering much and much more to a tourist. I was there in last July, with very high temperatures, which was a bit too much. But better then rain of course  Wink

Happy New Year, and looking forward to more...

Regards,
Eric

Hi Tim,

Finally you have got your trip report posted. I must say, I have broken into a smile many times as I recognize most of your pictures. And especially the return flight. Big grin!

Quoting Vandenheuvel (Thread starter):
The check in agent was surprised about a system request to check my credit card. Apparently most pax booked a city trip via a travel agent, and did not pay by credit card.

Apparently a little bug in the KE's system. The system for instance can not register the European ID card number automatically either.

Again, what a coincidence! Which seat did you have?

Nice pictures also, well done.

And always good to meet some A.netters anywhere around the world.

Maybe there will be an AMS meet sometime, you never know  

Quoting Airbuseric (Reply 1):

Surely not. There are so much more interesting carriers to get there. Maybe there 777 will make me reconsider.

Even though the seats were very fine, after a while the where no longer soft enough, feeling the framework becomes very uncomfortable. Though comfortable enough for a couple of hours.

Quoting Airbuseric (Reply 1):
Not my personal choice for a second visit though

I agree on that, it was fun exploring the city. only after you've seen it there is no need to get back.

Quoting Airbuseric (Reply 1):
with very high temperatures

Exactly the reason I didn't go there in the summer. You could notice presence of the heat by the way the public buildings where heated up. Way more than in the Netherlands.

Quoting Akhmad (Reply 2):

The exact same thing here. Especially how the crew arrives and how the pax fill up the waiting room at AMS in a couple of minutes.

Quoting Akhmad (Reply 2):

30A, only three seats in front of 33A I was on, on the return flight.

Quoting Akhmad (Reply 2):
We had a similar meal.

How surprisingly?  cheerful 

Quoting Akhmad (Reply 2):
Great pic. Too bad I missed it.

One thing you've surely missed. The station is beautiful, there's also a major dome on this massive building. There should be a monument for the terrorist attacks in Madrid some years ago, only I couldn't find it.

Quoting Akhmad (Reply 2):
I think it is a typical Spanish bathroom interior.

In combination with the fixed shower head some spare towels come in very handy.

Quoting Akhmad (Reply 2):
I knew who it was.

It was the family of witch the mother, and later the daughter sat separated somewhere down the aisle. Unbelievable how they managed to block the aisle for 10 minutes just to stow their coat, isn't it? Or the multiple toilet visits they needed in 3 and a half hours.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Reply 3):

They tasted just as good, if only some more airlines did this effort. Definitely a big advantage while choosing an airline.

I agree, loved them on LH

Now now, you know by own experience they aren't THAT bad  Wink

Hope you liked meeting up with Eric and Suryo, someone should organize an AMS meet someday.

Thanks for sharing, and see you Tuesday I guess,

One thing that made me smile was the few times the word "witch" has been used instead of "which"...

Maybe we should start referring to a bad flight attendant as a "coffee witch"

I am curious about the "do not disturb" and wake me for duty free/meal service stickers...where exactly are you suppose to put those?

Also...WHERE are those great looking relaxing chairs located at AMS? I've been through there a few times and have never seen them!

Again thanks for sharing and I am so glad to see a.netters meeting up in real life!

The A330 is alright. Probably a very fine aircraft ass long as she's equipped with a fine interior. Maybe a little boring after a while.

I am curious about this too. It says attach to the neck rest of your seat. I noticed people stuck it on top of their neck rest. While if its too far to the back. It may refer to the person behind you, and you still miss the catering.

Quoting Burj (Reply 9):
Also...WHERE are those great looking relaxing chairs located at AMS?

This was on the end of the G gates. There quiet some more of them, all around the terminal. This was the first time ever I found some of them vacated. There is a great view on the taxiway and runway from there.

Thank you. The cakes are too dry most of the time. However the cinnamon one was great.

The pre-take off meal is something very unique! But I'm sure it would have been welcomed by most as it allowed extra time to sleep.

Thanks again for sharing.

It was fantastic. In the Netherlands its more about destroying things and light fireworks. Madrid was very busy, but everyone behaved well. Also the subway continued operating without notable problems.

I was a bit disappointed by the rain. Usually weather in Spain is better than here. It was still acceptable.

They where too small. It could only hold KE cups, coffee cups where too big already. Maybe this is for safety purposes.

Quoting NZ107 (Reply 14):

Its unique, but I was very happy they did this. During the flight no more hot drinks where served. Maybe because the coffee cup was included in the meal service. They did some extra effort to bring around another round of cold drinks and water.

Or the multiple toilet visits they needed in 3 and a half hours.

Was the daughter assigned a window seat? If it was the case, I think I can figure out the reason why mother and daughter had swept seats. Because I saw her approaching her mother and complained about something I could not hear.

By the way, say hello to Martijn for me tomorrow.  Smile

Cheers,

Hola Tim!

Thnaks for this new insight on KE.

It is nice to read someone elses's point of view on the same flight, enjoyable and with more food that one could imagine nowadays.

Salut!

Roger

Very nice job Tim. It is very interesting to have the chance to read two people's trip reports about the same flight, not something one has very often.

So, how did you experience the first week of the year at school?

Hi Rogerbcn,

Thanks for commenting.

Can you believe this was only the 'light meal'? According to the 'inflight entertainment magazine' the real meal would be served on the second leg.

Thanks to the many cancellations it was bearable.  Big grin I am just so afraid for my spanish presentation next Monday. This trip probably increased my changes, yet I will need some good luck.

Tim,
