The quest for One World/Duna Gold


http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102021.jpg



Servus, dear readers,

the end of the year, ok story wise, is not that far away.
I was in contact with Malev for some more One World flying in the future.
They offered me the Duna Gold aka One World Sapphire status. I should meet Malev in Budapest with one simple segment in 2011 to catch the status.
Not that easy to fit the requirements and also a new departure airport together.
But, hey, there is Mr. S., the usually relaxed guy from the scheduling department for job´s like this.
Not that long after my description he´s on the phone to tell me his ideas:
"So, you need to fly Malev to Budapest?".
"Yes".
"And you want to fit in a new departure airport?".
"Yes".
"And also interesting plane types and to sum it up, for a cheap price?".
"Yes".
"Well, what about three legs on a DH84/E90/B738 combo and leg two as departure from a new airport?".
"Fixed!".

Ok, here is the routemap:

Thanx to:

Always nice to know, that someone from the local spotters party is ready for a chat.
So, Italy was just a week ago:

More MD´s For Genoa, Please! (by FLIEGER67 Jan 5 2012 in Trip Reports)

And now it´s time to fly again.

Here is the updated departure airports log:

Service MA 517 operated by Malev Hungarian Airlines
Scheduled: 20.15 // 21.50


Now that feels something special, flying our of STR Sunday in the evening.
These flight is booked together with the return BUD-STR in June by Exp.de. The fare per leg this way 80.00 Euro´s.
The Dash 8-400 is on schedule, nothing really special but much better than the usual A320 stuff.
The system shows me an aircraft change some days prior to the flight, the 736, yes, that´s what I like.
OLCI, sure Malev offers OLCI. I´am relaxed during my preparations, but this changed completely when I´ve noticed Saturday evening that departures from STR are excluded from the available OLCI airports. Oh, no, I´am not amused.
Leaving home a little earlier than expected at 06.00 pm,
one hour later at the airport. Despite MA is a member of the One World Alliance, the airline is handled at STR by LH. Why not try the self service kiosks now?.
Well, no success, forward to the desks.
Strange, both the first and biz counters are well used,
much easier at the eco desks with no time to wait there.
A nice female agent checked me in and answered my load question so far: "This will be a full flight today".
My search for a good seat via the usual websites is simply lost time now.
17F the rearmost available window on the plane for me.
With check-in done, let me go for a view to the screen now.
My flight from gate 161 looks like ok
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102001.jpg
No lounge for me, so down to the groundfloor for the gate.
Lots of pax around, this seems really a full flight.
The plane is parked on the apron. Bus boarding this way.
Pretty dark, but no chance to miss an under the wing shot
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102003.jpg
What a nice tail logo
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102004.jpg
The simple chance to spot the reg here.
This is HA-LOE, leg no. 7 only on the rescheduled 737-600 and also a new entry to my log.
In service with Malev since 06.11.2003. Six examples are actually in the fleet
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102006.jpg
A last view prior to boarding
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102007.jpg
Well, late boarding doesn´t help today. There is simply no open seat to spot in the rear cabin.
17F for me in the end, the third last row and finally all seats are taken.
The load is very close to 100% and there are a huge number of Daimler bags and badges on the coats to notice.
The german car manufacturer prepares a new factory in Kecskemet, south of Budapest and this is finally the closest way to go by plane. So let´s call it the Daimler shuttle now
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102009.jpg
Cabin crew is a middle aged, elder, three females party. Not a simple smile during boarding, nothing special at all here with Malev.
Cockpit crew is from Hungary, according to the name, no comment at all.
Legroom is ok with the dark blue leather seats. Much to my surprise it´s a comfy roomy feeling, despite the full load. Let me say, the cabin is not that really clean
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102010.jpg
8.30 pm, 15 minutes late, is the final time now to go for "Malev" from runway 07. 9 degrees, clear sky, 1 hour 20 minutes for BUD.
The safety card for the now scheduled 737-600
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102011.jpg
Roma, no I want to fly to Budapest today
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102012.jpg
No flightlevel data, the route is via MUC, easy to spot from above.
Service, well something more is really appreciated
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102014.jpg
Touchdown at the 3010 meters runway 13R, 8 degrees, clear sky, 9.50 pm ontime now.
Heading for the finger gate at BUD
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102019.jpg
Bye now to my successfull Malev flight
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102020.jpg
These blue noose looks like nice
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102021.jpg
The requirements are quickly fixed, so time now to head to the city.
Ah, here is the awaited message from S.:
"Congrats to the Duna Gold//One World Sapphire status. The flight was ok?".
"Not impressive by the crew, but a full flight. It seems good business for the airline this way.
And I hope they survive all the hassles with the actual debts."
The Budapest Airport Minibusz works quick, some ten minutes to wait only and also only three pax on the bus with my stop first.
Driving through a nightly city feels always somewhat special to me.
No time to wait at check-in for the Royal Park Boutique Hotel and my upper floor room is prepared, well done.
Reception this way
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102024.jpg

More details
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102023.jpg
I am looking for something to eat Sunday late evening and the main trainstation might be a good place to go with this target.
Well, to my big surprise, there is also the international ticket office open for business.
Catched the ticket, 60.00 Euro´s, not that cheap, but that´s the way to go now.
My austrian friends are always good for a joke.
The national rail company ÖBB offers real good fares in advance for online tickets. But when you try to book it, the system responds that it is not possible to catch a ticket out of Hungary online via the ÖBB. And also the MAV-START website is not better this way. Only hungarian language and national tickets are sold online.
Had a real good nights sleep there at the hotel further on.
The breakfast area the next morning

The hotel is located just around the corner from the main train station Budapest Keleti Palyaudvar
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102029.jpg
Looks like clean this way
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102028.jpg
Some chat is warm welcomed when on travels.
Dorka, thanx for the nice company in Budapest.
This is the place where I should leave these city now

And shoud leave now via Kelenföld-Tatabanya-Györ-Mosonmagyarovar, note we are really in Hungary, no question, Hegyeshalom to Vienna-Meidling
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102038.jpg
Comfy and clean, well done by ÖBB

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102044.jpg
Vienna-Meidling is the connection point on the next train bound for Graz.
Yes, this is the Unesco World Heritage
Semmering route via Wiener-Neustadt-Mürzzuschlag, ok this is Austria now, Kapfenberg and Bruck an der Murr
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102046.jpg
Up and away

And bridges
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102050.jpg
Also a good number of tunnel´s here
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102051.jpg
Till arrival in Graz.
The ÖBB again, 1.90 Euro´s, shuttles me to the airport where my next flight shoud leave from.
Let me call S. now:
"Arrived at Graz with marvellous views along the way. All trains running on schedule.
Any preparations from you´re hand?".
"Sure, there is a very special local wine called Schilcher made from the Blauer Wildbacher grape
and there are a thousand of different bread rolls on offer, so that´s my way to spend the time during you´re travels. Enjoy you´re flights".

Service airberlin AB 8551 operated by Niki
Scheduled: 19.15 // 20.30


Yes, this is my new departure airport.
Flying for the first time out of Graz.
Fly.de provides the ticket, leg 2 and 3 booked together, the fare per leg this way 45.00 Euro´s.
No success again with OLCI, not offered by AB with flights out of GRZ.
This looks like the tower ahead

Service airberlin AB 6541 operated by TuiFly
Scheduled: 21.35 // 22.50


Up the stairs now for a view to the screen.
Gate C38 for me.
There is simply no chance to fly anywhere else than STR as the last service of the day
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102090.jpg
The small terminal C is crowded to say the least, a couple of delays mainly to Scandinavia and a thousand of people around. No lounge for me here again.
Boarding for STR starts well ontime nevertheless.
The 738 is on schedule
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102093.jpg
This is D-AHFO, all together 61 legs on this type by now. My log told me that exactly this plane delivered me from AGA to DUS and further on to STR some time ago.
First in service with Hapag Lloyd from 03.04.2000 and since then flying under several brands, airberlin, Hapag Lloyd Express, TuiFly, Canjet and again TuiFly for airberlin. There are 25 '800´s in the fleet.
Interesting to follow an tailstrike and an rejected high speed takeoff with this plane in early 2011 during departure from TFS for FRA. Thanx god, nothing further happened, but the plane was a couple of days out of service
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102094.jpg
Sure, under the wing
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102095.jpg
With the complete dark sky above
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102096.jpg
Operated by TuiFly or not?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102097.jpg
9.30 pm, short ahead to schedule, 7 degrees, clear sky. "Tuijet" wants to go now for the 55 minutes to STR. Departure from the 2428 meters runway 08R.
The safety card
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102102.jpg
Cabin crew is one young, nice male and three females, one young, one middle aged and an well experienced elder purser.
She performed a very good job here.
Introduced the cabin crew by name, informed around all flight details also during this late time of the day and all together in a real cool style.
"Come what may come, as long as I´ve been here, there should be no problem for us!".
The dark cabin
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102103.jpg
Cockpit crew is from Germany, the captain with a very short info during cruise only.
Flightlevel is 30000 feet above ERF.
You know, I recommend the exit row check on AB every time.
This is 14F, three seats for me and the load is 70%.
Legroom
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102104.jpg
Well, the legroom is good here and the dark blue leather seats are comfy and clean
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102105.jpg
The service today, Ringo for me served with free drinks
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/A1102/A1102106.jpg
Touchdown at 07, 10.30 pm, 20 minutes ahead to schedule, 10 degrees and clear sky.
That´s what I call well ontime back in STR.
To the car and soon thereafter at home.

Sure a good catch, the Malev 736 and also the Duna Gold Status.
Niki was ok and also TuiFly done the job, more for me the next time.
Well, there was another run booked to close my flying year, but it wasn´t possible so this was finally cancelled and I need to wait for more flying till the next year.
Cruise ship spotting in Fort Lauderdale is coming up soon, if nothing goes wrong, as usual.

Pfiati, comments welcome and appreciated,
FLIEGER67 or Markus Klaus Felger, like the guys and girls on Facebook know me!.

interesting report about your quest for gold. MA doesn't impress me at all, but I still need to add it to my log. Hopefully it won't go bust anytime soon.

Yes, a little bit more would be fine.

Dear Markus,

How nice to read another exciting adventure of yours. Even more when GRZ is included in your itinerary. Now I know how Herman might experience his quarterly business trip to Graz. Thanks to you!

"And also interesting plane types and to sum it up, for a cheap price?".

Mr. S. definitely knows the way to go.

What a shame.

I ask myself the same question.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Reply 1):

Niki is the most exemplary of Air Berlin group.

It reminds me of the tarmac of DXB.

No John or Paul? Sorry, I cannot help it.


Thank you for sharing. This is the way to keep me inspired for my upcoming journey.

Hi Markus !

Thanks for another great report with nice pictures !

Nice for you to catch another 736; great when you get a schedule change like that!

Malev looks okay but nothing too special. The train station in Budapest looks very impressive! Nice that you get another departure airport. I've been doing quite well with that recently too  

Looking forward to your report to Florida!

Nice TR...

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Despite MA is a member of the One World Alliance, the airline is handled at STR by LH. ... Strange, both the first and biz counters are well used, much easier at the eco desks with no time to wait there.
... My search for a good seat via the usual websites is simply lost time now.

First Class Malev counters?! MA is not offering FC on any route- very, very strange...
In other terms, just follow the one-world rule, always up-front (I know, you are big fan of the last row). But MA is offering like BA plush BusinessClass seats for Economy passengers up-front (and those seats should be normally pre-reserved for DUNA-CLUB members).

Hi Markus,
another good report! I'm beginning to like your combination of planes and trains  
I take it Malev is the easiest airline to attain status on from OW? Congrats on Gold, especially as in Germany LH has such a huge market share. Will we see you on BA in the future?  
Nice train ride, and good pictures from the back of the train out over the tracks!
I'll echo what has been said, the Niki livery looks so good on that Embraer!
Thanks again!

Hi Markus,

Great read, as expected!

I flew MA a year or two back, AMS-BUD, got a 73G, had been hoping for the -600 swap like you but no luck!

Found MA to be pretty good, got a nice sandwich/snack and a decent beer, looks like things have been reduced based on your offering.

Niki look good as always, love to fly them one day, especially on the 190, great plane!

Cheers

Mark

Hi Markus,

Another nice read, perfectly suitable for this Friday evening. Good you managed to take off from Graz, and of course - congratulations for Duna Gold!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
I was in contact with Malev for some more One World flying in the future.

Malev is indeed a very interesting carrier, absolutely one of the most interesting ones in oneworld. I have been very tempted to book a ticket on them as one way fares on for eg. CPH-BUD have been quite acceptable.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Now that feels something special, flying our of STR Sunday in the evening.

I am starting to get worried about you. Such a late night departure from Stuttgart this time and last time you had a lazy mid-day departure. Or should I blame Mr. S. for the absence of the early morning flights?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
This is HA-LOE, leg no. 7 only on the rescheduled 737-600 and also a new entry to my log.

I think you should!

Do I detect a Niki logo in the upper right corner? So does Niki have their own version of the AB inflight magazine?

Come on, why did not you jump on the 21.25 flight to Helsinki instead?

The service today, Ringo for me served with free drinks

Ah, Ringo cookies, that is a must for me every time I visit Italy! Last time in Florence I had to stock some of those cookies with me to take home. Hopefully I can also find some of them on Sicily next month.

That´s what I call well ontime back in STR.

Which brings us to the questions - can you still consider such an early arrival to be "on time"?.

The last report about your 2011 travels - well done for clearing you backlog just in time before your 2012 adventures start! Good to catch the E90 with Niki, brings a bit of variety into the usual AB operations.

Hola Markus!

Great report as usual.

It seems MA is giving away Gold status quite easily, good for you to catch it... I doubt they offer the same here due to IB's high market in the area. I will follow the idea close just in case, nice to be a Oneworld gold with just one flight... great!

I was in BUD some hears ago and I remember going through the train station, despite being a very nice building I remember it to be pretty run down and the area around, like most in Europe, was visited by some 'strange looking' people.

Like the combination of planes and trains you are up to lately.

E190 by Niki looks wonderful in that silver painting... a great plane, flew three of them by New Year's time on AC (trip report on the way soon) and really enjoyed it.

All the best in your flights this year, any routing to BCN or nearby? Just let me know, great to meet you here or sure in BER in June.

Salut!
