The Amsterdam Jet 2 Amsterdam, seriously!

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101032.jpg

Hello, dear readers,

everyone, who followed my latest story

Diversion Or Not?. Wet And Windy In Brest/Brittany (by FLIEGER67 Aug 24 2011 in Trip Reports)

knows, that Mr. S., the lazy guy at the scheduling department, booked me for Wroclaw, outbound on LH Cityline, inbound on Eurolot.
But, you know, not everything is running on schedule, like we want to see it.

Thursday, 16.06.2011, I´am ready ontime at FRA,
checked in for the late morning flight to WRO.
The Senator lounge is waiting for me, spending the time there.
Well done offers
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA0611/FRA0611004.jpg
But much to much customers and less seating capacity for my personal liking.
Super nice staff preparing every sandwich what you want fresh
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA0611/FRA0611003.jpg
Nice views to the runways and taxiways where you see something like this
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA0611/FRA0611002.jpg
Or this
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA0611/FRA0611001.jpg
WRO is announced as 20 minutes late on D-AECI, the scheduled Embraer 190
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA0611/FRA0611005.jpg
Coming in 30 minutes late from NUE
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA0611/FRA0611006.jpg
Not the best day for FRA when we see all that delays and cancellations
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA0611/FRA0611007.jpg
Also the LOT morning inbound from WRO is cancelled
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA0611/FRA0611008.jpg
More delay and a gate change is announced for my flight.
How to spend the time?. What about a chat with a young polish born US girl, also booked on my flight, we had a really nice talk while waiting.
50 minutes delay now and a plane change
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA0611/FRA0611009.jpg
Well, finally the flight is cancelled.
I´ve talked to the nice young female gate agent.
"It seems WRO is a no go for me today, do you know what happened?".
"I´am sorry, we need the original scheduled plane for a more delayed service to FLR.
The crew changed to the new plane and doesn´t accept it due to technical reasons. Total kaputt, completely out of order and there is no more backup plane available on short notice".
So, LH and LOT refunded me fully and I´ve spent the remaining day at home, not bad to do some work around my travels.

Well, it´s Friday now and I should go to the UK, as long as Mr.S. fixed it this way.

Here is the actual route map

Service BE 7122 operated by flybe
Scheduled: 10.25 // 11.40


The main intention today is to fly out of LBA on Jet 2, both for the first time.
There is a well fitting LH by Contact Air nonstop STR-MAN which is the original idea.
But Mr. S., that lazy guy at scheduling, ends his work sometimes a bit earlier than his original timetable. When he try to fix it the next day, the fare jumps from an acceptable 70.00 Euro´s to 150.00 Euro´s, no, that´s not funny.
I will introduce Mr. C. from the financial controlling today, you know these guy for sure, working for every company these days. Smart, suit, tie and the big red "no way" badge on his forehead.
Well, S. called C. about his opinion and you know what happened. I am booked on the late morning STR-BHX service instead. Is it possible to reach LBA ontime from BHX, we will see!.
C. joined S. today to follow me, both relaxed with a pint of Midnight Bell in hand extra ordered from the Leeds brewery to spend the day, let the show go on.
This service is booked by Flybe directly, the cheapest way and ok so far with 70.00 Euro´s.
BE informed me by mail a couple of weeks ago that there is a change in departure time, ten minutes later,
I´am impressed, other companies doesn´t see the need for further information with these short differences.
No OLCI, as it´s not possible to select a seat and that means you end usually in an aisle on the Dash 8-400.
Waved goodbye to my home office and on the road at 08.00 am, at the airport short to 09.00 am, no problems today with the car park and at the counter, Terminal 3, to check in soon thereafter.
A young female there.
"Good morning, just me, no bags and a window seat in the very last row, if it´s possible".
"Sure, let me check you´re ID. Ok, here is your boarding
pass, have a good flight".
My plane is inbound from BHX a couple of minutes ahead to schedule
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101001.jpg
And also outbound looks like ok from gate 129
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101002.jpg
No time to wait at security, everything much more relaxed than during the last days.
This is something new here at STR, CO/UA introduced the route to EWR just a couple of days ago
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101003.jpg
No lounge for me with BE today, so down to the ground floor, a quick passport check and at the gate with only a few other pax around.
That looks like not impressive loadwise if there are not many more coming.
Ok, it´s a vacation week, so it seems not that much biz demand for this route today.
Boarding is called ontime, by bus around the apron
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101004.jpg
The scheduled Dash 8-400 is waiting
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101005.jpg
Looks good under the clear blue sky
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101006.jpg
This is G-ECOB, leg no. 22 on type and warm welcomed, a new registration.
This plane is delivered to flybe at 18.01.2008, leased out to Wideroe at 08.08.2008 and back with flybe since 21.05.2009. 54 planes on type are in the fleet, impressive
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101007.jpg
Propeller close up
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101008.jpg
With these low number of passengers, I´am finally alone on the apron while taking pictures, let´s step inside now immediatelly.
The load is 50% only today.
Oldfashioned bright grey leathers seats, no recline
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101009.jpg
Good legroom, two for me in the last row
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101010.jpg
Cockpit crew is from the UK, the pilot with a nice welcome during boarding in typical relaxed UK style.
The cabin is clean so far
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101011.jpg
One middle aged, nice, male together with one elderly ok female doing the cabin service today.
But why on earth does she feels a personal need to close every overhead bin with a heavy and loud bang?.
My ears are good, till now!.
It´s 10.20 am, some minutes ahead to schedule, superb sunny and 18 degrees.
2 hours, 15 minutes for the midlands leaving from runway 25.
Always interesting to see that safety card also written in french
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101012.jpg
This is the actual or not so actual flybe magazin
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101013.jpg
A few clouds only on the way
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101014.jpg
Service is BOB.
Above Belgium, BRU down there at 22000 feet
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101015.jpg
The pilot is on the speakers again with real detailed inflight informations.
An engine on the way
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101016.jpg
Coming in for BHX, well, that looks like typical UK weather
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101017.jpg
The final approach is very shaky. The wind and the clouds are good for some turbulences. 2605 meters asphalt or better known as runway 15 welcomed us with a very hard touchdown. It´s 11.30 am, ten minutes ahead to schedule, partly cloudy, dry and only 16 degrees by now
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101018.jpg
The first leg of the day fixed as scheduled.
S. and C. watching me closely, done the first couple of pints and are in a good mood.
But I´am not that really ok with the guys today.
There are less than five hours from arrival at BHX till departure from LBA.
S. want to send me on the train, money saving you know, but not ok when I notice that there is only one possible train connection available.
By train from BHX airport to the city, change there for Leeds and further by bus to LBA airport. It seems much to risky for me to do it this way.
Not that there are any delays possible by the UK rail system.
So the only other option and this is also somewhat tight, is to rent a car, something what I don´t really like.
Best case connection is 2 hours, 30 minutes.
Booking is done by Autoeurope, the fare ok, 55.00 Euro´s.
Out in the public, no time to wait at the rental desk. The car is from Europcar, a close to new small Peugeot, ok for my needs.
It´s noon by now.
The rental car pick up point is not that well signed, or mabye I´ve checked it not en detail with some rain showers around. Some minutes to walk till I´ve done the right direction.
Catched the car and soon on the nonstop motorway drive up the north. Lucky me, no traffic jams and LBA is coming closer mile per mile.
The last ones are running rather long through small cities and along some housing areas, catching fuel close to the airport and present at my target at around 3.30 pm.
Well, that is another one of these close encounters succesfully done.
S. and C., scheduling and controlling, working close together, following me and having fun with the pints by now.
Returned the car for a closer view around my new departure airport.

Service LS 205 operated by Jet 2
Scheduled: 16.30 // 18.45


Booking is done here with Jet2.com directly, to expensive from my point of view, but the schedule fit´s, so that´s the way to loose 70.00 Euro´s.
OLCI is ok here, seat 5A this time. With the experience from Wednesday I decide to go a bit forward in the plane with the connection at AMS.
Welcome to Yorkshire´s airport
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101019.jpg
Not a really modern place or maybe the low clouds doesn´t help with my first impression
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101020.jpg
But finally this is Leeds Bradford International Airport,
also this building doesn´t looks like up to date
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101021.jpg
Very limited check in space only inside and all together with a somewhat narrow ceiling.
Some minutes to wait at security with a good number of holiday makers on the way today.
A view from above down to the so called main hall
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101022.jpg
And also the gate area is packed to say the least.
You need to walk around a couple of corners till a remote gate area to find a open and really dirty seat with empty cans around and other stuff which should usually be placed in the bins
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101023.jpg
Another view down to the closed curbside in front off the terminal
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101024.jpg
Wait in lounge, as usual in the UK, with a thousand of other pax, so it seems and what about a real lounge, joke!.
Gate 1 for me finally, boarding ontime
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101025.jpg
The main hall from above en detail
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101026.jpg
Also the gate is well undersized for the number of pax,
we used a bus above the apron, ok with this windy and wet weather conditions.
No way, the older livery looks like better
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101027.jpg
Something like this
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101028.jpg
Should I use the rear stairs as usual?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101029.jpg
No, only for the picture purpose
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101030.jpg
Very close to the engine
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101031.jpg
That fit´s perfectly, the Jet 2 Amsterdam will fly me to Amsterdam
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101032.jpg
The plane looks like ok

Fuselage detail
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101034.jpg
It is G-CELV, a pretty senior example.
The 733 like on schedule. One of 24 examples in the Jet 2 fleet right now.
Delivered at 11.12.1986 to Ansett Airlines, in Europe from 05.06.2002 with Channel Express and now under the Jet 2 brand since 09.02.2003, no doubt about the name "Amsterdam".
Leg no. 47 on the 737-300, a new one for the log
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101035.jpg
This will be also accepted as a replacement if something goes wrong
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101036.jpg
Cockpit crew is from the UK, the captain with a nice welcome during boarding.
Wing view from my forward cabin seat.
The aisle is also taken, but the middle seat remains open, ok so far with a load around 80%
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101037.jpg
New toylike seats here, different colours, fake leather, not that really clean cabin, to say the least
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101038.jpg
Cabin crew is one very nice young female together with two male FA´s, one young, one middle aged, both ok.
The safety card
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101040.jpg
These seats are definitely low cost stuff
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101041.jpg
Some more 733 material on the ramp
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101042.jpg
The actual magazine, UK style, like it
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101043.jpg
Legroom feels ok here by surprise
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101044.jpg
2250 meters concrete, runway 14, should be enough to leave LBA
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101045.jpg
Taxi at 4.30 pm, perfectly ontime with 14 degrees only, heavy wind and as soon as I was on the plane it start´s to rain, also perfect timing here
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101046.jpg
No view to the runway end from this point
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101047.jpg
No flight duration info, no surprise, service is BOB.
That red engine looks nice above the clouds, isn´t it?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101048.jpg
The refurbished cabin

The captain is again on the mike with a short goodbye
during approach, no flightlevel or route information also.
We´re done the longest runway 18R, 3800 meters, 6.35 pm, ten minutes ahead to schedule, 15 degrees and rain, shudder!.
A thousand of EZY planes and me here now at AMS
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101051.jpg
That looks like summer in Germany
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101052.jpg
Bye now to the friendly high fares
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101053.jpg
A long way to walk now to the main terminal, let´s go for a change.
S. and C., the guy´s closely followed me, are fixed now with the pint´s and running a little bit envious with the next step for me!.

Service KLM KL 1879 operated by KLM Cityhopper
Scheduled: 20.55 // 22.10


This is the open return flight from last Sunday´s STR - AMS.
The fare is ok this way 45.00 Euro´s booked by KL directly.
Now leaving the Loco feeling behind and looking forward to often showed, one of the best airline lounges in Europe.
The KL crown lounge
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101054.jpg
Now thats wide, spacious and there are not that many customers around
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101055.jpg
Superb well presented offers
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101056.jpg
The main buffet
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101057.jpg
My meal, well done KL
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101058.jpg
Work stations
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101059.jpg
Sadly, but I should leave now!.
STR looks like ok from B16
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101060.jpg
This plane parked at my gate
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101061.jpg
No, that regional apron is not that well used today!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101062.jpg
The view for my machine from the other side
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101063.jpg
Down the stairs for boarding now
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101064.jpg
This is PH-EZH, the Embraer 190 like on schedule.
In service with KL Cityhopper since 23.10.2009 and one of 17 in the fleet.
Leg no. 8 on type and well, another new registration
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101065.jpg
You never know, late boarding helps again today.
Web-check-in shows seat 26F as the last row window, sure ok for me. But today 26D is also taken and with no one else behind me and row 24 seats D/F open, it´s naturally me to catch row 24 this time.
Cabin view, dark blue leather seats, clean, the load is very close to 100%, two seats for me
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101066.jpg
9.00 pm, short behind schedule, is the time to leave AMS from the 3400 meters 18L, wet and cloudy with 14 degrees. 1 hour for STR.
Cockpit crew is from the Netherlands, the captain with a relaxed and detailed welcome after boarding.
Runway congestions, some minutes to wait for us.
The well used safety card
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101067.jpg
Cabin crew is two female FA´s, one middle aged ok, one young and nice.
Service is cookies and free drinks.
Well, no legroom complaints here
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101068.jpg
The captain is to hear again with short informations prior to descent.
The route is above BRU and it´s pretty shaky all the way due to heavy wind.
Cruising in the darkness
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1101069.jpg
10.10 pm, ontime, now the rain reached Germany also, nothing else expected and the temperature is 17 degrees.
Runway 25 for me at STR, welcome back very close to home or should I better say really home here now!.
S. and C. falling asleep with the comfy chairs, it seems they are not really used to that heavy dark stuff from Leeds called Midnight Bell!.

BE operates ontime and with an acceptable fare on this route, sure ok to fly the Dash this way.
Jet 2 is also acceptable, nice stuff, ontime, the fare to high for my personal impression.
KL and especially the lounge at AMS, well done and really recommendable.

More time for a change now?.
Sure, that´s the way to go.
The weekend will see me in Ukraine for the very first time and no, not departing from STR. A very good Miles and More offer opened it for me and Lvov on four, ok, small engines, sounds interesting, isn´t it?.
More to come soon.

Bye-bye,
FLIEGER67 or Markus Klaus Felger, that´s the way Facebook know´s me!.

Hi, Markus. Good to see another story around from your recent flights.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
BE informed me by mail a couple of weeks ago that there is a change in departure time, ten minutes later,
I´am impressed, other companies doesn´t see the need for further information with these short differences.

Indeed. That's good care for customers. Way to go!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
This is something new here at STR, CO/UA introduced the route to EWR just a couple of days ago

Something for you to give a try?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
One middle aged, nice, male together with one elderly ok female doing the cabin service today.
But why on earth does she feels a personal need to close every overhead bin with a heavy and loud bang?.

Well, her monthly period or it just wasn't her day...  
Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
So the only other option and this is also somewhat tight, is to rent a car, something what I don´t really like.
Best case connection is 2 hours, 30 minutes.
Booking is done by Autoeurope, the fare ok, 55.00 Euro´s.

Booked last minute? Or in advance? Because that sounds like a good deal, with a different return station for the car. But also for me, not really my style to travel around.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
That red engine looks nice above the clouds, isn´t it?

Almost like SAS and the 737. Love the colour and contrast in the sky.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
A thousand of EZY planes and me here now at AMS

Indeed, EZY is big these days in AMS. And more routes are due to open soon also, with a possible base in the future.

btw, nice to read your positive KLM experience also. No sandwich pack for you... it seems I am lucky on my recent flights then.

Most of their 733s are veterans, 22 out of 23 planes were built between 1986 and 1988.

I flew them on the MAN - TLV - MAN flight in June, this year on their 752, i found them very good alternative to easyjet service to LTN, and being very tall (6ft.4") i was surprised with the bigger legroom they have than easyjet, well at least that's what i thought, well i'm not too picky about air travel as long as i can fit comfortably into the seat.

Hi Markus

Great report! Nice to see this mix of airlines for your recent travels. Looks like you got out of LBA just in time - we've had a mostly awful summer in the UK this year. It's not been brilliant weatherwise.

That 733 sure is ancient - I remember seeing it flying around Australia in Ansett colours when I was a boy! Yikes - makes me feel old. The interior looked quite snazzy though.

Good to hear you made it on a Dash 8 as well.

This service is booked by Flybe directly, the cheapest way and ok so far with 70.00 Euro´s.

Booking is done here with Jet2.com directly, to expensive from my point of view, but the schedule fit´s, so that´s the way to loose 70.00 Euro´s.

Guten Tag herr Markus, Mr S and Mr C,

Thanks for this interesting story again. I cannot recall a lot of Jet2 reports on the form yet, glad you shared your experience with this low-cost carrier with us.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
No OLCI, as it´s not possible to select a seat and that means you end usually in an aisle on the Dash 8-400.

? Last time I flew FlyBE I was able to choose a seat doing OLCI (and no, I did not pay for it).

Last time I flew FlyBE I was able to choose a seat doing OLCI (and no, I did not pay for it).

Good to know, it seems they changed the policy.

Quoting Sultanils (Reply 23):
54? That's quite impressive!

Exactly my opinion.

Quoting Sultanils (Reply 23):

Markus I mean Mr S, you are so inventive

Always the main target, you know.

Quoting Sultanils (Reply 23):

Nope, even the clouds don't help... It stays a 'not really modern place'...

Sure the case here, also some sun doesn´t help at all.

Quoting Sultanils (Reply 23):
Nice coincidence.

Definitely.

Quoting Sultanils (Reply 23):
Nice as well

Love the 752.

Quoting Sultanils (Reply 23):
What's the thing with the metal hook?

Not sure at all.

Quoting Sultanils (Reply 23):

Except for the overhead panels it seems.

Good point again.

Quoting Sultanils (Reply 23):
Good grief, what a big bunch of RJ's!

Really a special feeling to see all that planes closeby.

Greetings,
Markus(FLIEGER67)
