Hallo dear readers,

I should do not talk to much about it!.
Most of the readers here know the misery about german capital´s new airport BER.
A good number of girls and guys decided to go for Berlin and be part of the grand opening day.
Well, no opening, but Berlin anyway.
How to go there?.
Directly from Stuttgart to Berlin?.
No way, absolutely no way for me!.
Let me show you my experience at STR´s Senator counter this early Saturday morning.
There are three flights on one confirmation.
The first two legs are open for OLCI and ok, not no. 3.
Not a minute to wait, till a nice middle aged female agent is ready to check my needs.
"Good morning, I´ve checked in, but not printed for two of three flights. Is it possible to check in and print it out here?".
"Sure, let me see you´re card. We will check if the flights are stored with your Senator account".
She swiped the card and the first two boarding passes are printed out immediatelly.
"Ok, this is Stuttgart to Copenhagen and this is Copenhagen to Stockholm.
And there is a third flight on the reservation, let me see".
What does she expect?. Something more up the north, Kiruna, maybe. Another place in Sweden or Scandinavia. What about Iceland as a connection on Icelandair. Who knows?.
Some typing, followed by a very suspicious view to me.
Sure, I know, I´am the alien, the extraterrestrial guy just for a short visit to planet earth.
No standard human being decides to stretch a one hour nonstop with also Berlin as the most served destination from Stuttgart to a close to full day trip.
Some more typing.
"Ahem, you´re third flight is from Stockholm to Berlin?".
"Yes, that´s my way of flying around!".
Another more bewildered view to me.
And a printout later I was send for the lounge with a nice bye-bye. It seems the staff is well trained here to interact with aliens like me!.

The routemap today looks like, well, alien shaped:



Thanx to:

A good week after the last trip a la francaise:

Cutie´s, Avro´s And Nice Companion For PUF (by FLIEGER67 Jul 28 2012 in Trip Reports)

And here are the actual done routes:

With the previous 200 departure airports:

And sure some hassles for me, to fit in a new departure airport around this trip, but anyway it works
to count no. 217 on the map:

Let´s go!.

No question from the cell phone yesterday evening.

Btw., Exp.de provided me with the tix details this time,
the fare per leg 1 - 3, 55.00 Euro´s.
Despite the early morning time there are nicely well presented offers here at STR´s Senator lounge
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201002.jpg
The more serious stuff
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201003.jpg
Down to the gate, half asleep, but this way is well known to me.
Close to no one else around, I´am late, but not to late, always these SEN Lounge guys!.
Ready for a ride across the apron till "Maria" welcomes me
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201004.jpg
Ok, the "Viking Maria".
Better known as OY-KFG
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201005.jpg
Yes, this is the scheduled CR9 and no, this is nothing new to me. My third date with "Maria", after STR-CPH and KRS-CPH not that long ago.
Leg no. 11 on type
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201006.jpg
In the air since 07.07.2009 with SK. 12 planes on type are in the actual fleet.
The plane is noted with an incident at HAM last year when it was on finals and a EK 773 started it´s takeoff roll without clearance from the crossing runway.
The tower noticed it and forced EK to stop immediatelly while OY-KFG going around
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201007.jpg
06.20 am, perfectly ontime, 1 hour, 10 minutes now to go for "Scandinavian" from runway "Two-Five".
9 degrees and chilly fresh air around.
Are you guys up there know that it´s June here in Germany?.
Legroom is really good here to say the least.
Two for me in the exit row, 17A managed by the female Senator desk agent, as soon as she is back on track after the routing shock
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201009.jpg
Cockpit crew is from Scandinavia, the captain with a nice and detailed welcome during boarding.
Once more short prior to descent in a relaxed style.
He´s also at the planes door during disembarking later on, well done.
No route or flightlevel information available this way.

Touchdown at the 3300 meters "Two-Two-Left". 07.45 am, ten minutes ahead to schedule, 7 degrees, cloudy and wet. Not that I´ve talked about chilly fresh air at STR this morning!.
Sure not a problem for me to fly these classic by now
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201017.jpg
By now to "Maria", it was nice to meet you again!. But as nice as it was, next time send me a new sister, please!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201018.jpg
CPH looks like busy this morning
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201019.jpg
What a nice looking livery
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201020.jpg
Two holes to go
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201021.jpg
Not that I´ve even noticed it really, but my internal
ILS system lined me up for an approach this way!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201022.jpg
But wait, this is part of the next leg!.

While doing some FB chat´s with the guys already on the way for the meeting, our fellow member from Finland, FlyingFinn76, P., informed me that another fellow guy from Finland, AYA333, J.,

No question, a call is done immediatelly and minutes thereafter J. was accepted as my lounge guest for some nice talking.
SK is doing well from gate B9, but not the best day for BA, so it seems
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201028.jpg
This one turn´s in my direction

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201035.jpg
The first time for me with Wifi, not that fast but for free.
Interesting to do more FB chat from above.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201047.jpg
This is LN-RRO, "Bernt Viking", the scheduled and warm welcomed 736. A new entry for the books and leg no. 8 on type.
In the air with SK since 18.09.1998. Impressive, 28 737-600´s are in the fleet right now and this is the oldest example
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201048.jpg
2.10 pm, perfectly ontime once again, "Scandinavian" is ready to go for the 1 hour, 15 minutes from runway "Zero-One-Left" like arrivals.
Departure was strange to say the least.
7 degrees, rain and heavy wind, the plane turned immediatelly to the right after leaving the ground, further up and down till we reached calm air.
Three female FA´s working the cabin.
One elder and really nice, together with another elder and one middle aged woman, also nice.
Cockpit crew is a female captain today, she´s on the mike with a nice and short welcome during boarding. Once again inflight nice and also once more in a nice style during descent.
37000 feet maximum flight level, no route info.
Safety on board, take 3
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201049.jpg
Cabin view, well loaded to say the least.
100% and no suits to see

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201051.jpg
Service is free coffee and tea for several times.

The cabin fitted with dark blue fabric seats, clean so far.

Fellow A.netter MSS658/Marc is inbound from STR,
STR?. Well, that´s usually me, but not today, just a couple of minutes later, so we decided to wait for him.
The Tageskarte/All day ticket, 6.30 Euro´s, free for all rides on the public transport network, help´s me on the way for the hotel.
That´s what I decide to do now first before joining the meeting.
Check-In at the Motel One Berlin Hauptbahnhof,
if the name is true, just around the corner from the Hauptbahnhof where also the bus from the airport stops.
The hotel
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201075.jpg
Welcome

Very close to the main train station
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201073.jpg
I was in contact with the hotels reservation manager
and asked for a top floor room.
And what happened?. A large room on the top floor exactly at the corner with the best city view.
Well done here.
Room first view

The room for the second view
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201059.jpg
For the meeting now?. No. There are a couple of participants coming in late at TXL, so back to the airport it is for me.
To welcome just to name a few, Airbuseric, Akhmad, Pieter, Airtrainer and for a special welcoming committee to Infodesk.
Now further on for the meeting which was held near Alexplatz with good chat and talking by Blaz, FlyingFinn76, Makeree, RogerBCN, Palmjet, CaptainRed, parton87, Eco, globetraveller and all the others, sorry not named here. Just to few time to talk to everyone.
Back to the hotel very late at night or better said early the next morning!.
A late night view for the main train station and the place where Mrs. Merkel spend our hard earned money in the background

Ready for breakfast
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201074.jpg
And the offers
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201076.jpg
With 76,50 Euro´s definitely a real good price earnings ratio for Berlin.
Breakfast together with one of the fellow guys and girls here, thanx H., you know and ready for another public bus ride for TXL airport where a good number of the participants are also ready for some more talking.
2.30 Euro´s is the single fare for the airport.
I remember especially Sultanils and some SMS chat with Roberts87.
Far to soon it was time for me to head back to the city and the main train station.
Should I go by Rikshaw today?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201077.jpg

More sun might be better this way
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201082.jpg
Or should I go by bike?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201083.jpg
Ok, I know I´am getting older, but I´am also mostly ok to believe my eyes.
My train is the last on the board and it runs till Tübingen today, not that I have a special relationship with this place
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201084.jpg
Ready to go for the train
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201085.jpg
I should catch one more new departure airport soon.
Deutsche Bahn on the Intercity followed by the S-Bahn
delivered me ontime for 49.00 Euro´s to?.
Here it is, oldfashioned stuff
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201086.jpg
And further on for...

Stuttgart looks like ok from gate B11
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201088.jpg
Booking is done by 4U directly, the fare 45.00 Euro´s.
Check-in is done online, no printout as usual.
Sure no problem for the nice guy at the desk to print me another one.
How to use every available space for advertissements
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201089.jpg

Germanwings check-in in the rear part
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201091.jpg
Strange design here.
The gates are not connected airside.
So, as a Germanwings passenger with access to the LH Lounge, I need to go through security for the LH gates to join the lounge
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201092.jpg
Here it is, not that much customers around today
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201093.jpg
Well, the cake for me, please
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201094.jpg
"Strawberry fields", oh, no, week!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201095.jpg
LH A 319 bound for FRA at the gate and at the gate and at the gate...
Not that really amused pax returning back for the lounge.
The really nice lounge lady received a view bad comments with the flight cancelled due to a technical. Rebookings on the way with not that much offers Sunday afternoon/evening and that means a hotel night for some of the pax

4U spraying down the runway
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201097.jpg
Football anyone?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201098.jpg
This is Tuifly´s logojet with the Hanover football team 96
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201099.jpg
Well, through security the wrong way with some suspicious views by the staff and to do the next check now for the Germanwings gates.
And this looks like my plane
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201100.jpg
Well, it seems an A319 as scheduled
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201101.jpg
Thanx god, a finger gate with the bad weather

D-AGWI, another new entry here and leg no. 80 on type.
This one is in service with the airline since 23.01.2008 and it´s perfectly fitting named "City of Hannover".
32 examples are in the actual fleet.
D-AGWI had a hard time this year, so it seems. In January it is reported by a loss of separation with an Air Contractors AT72 just after departure ex HAJ and in March with an lightning strike on finals for NAP with the return leg cancelled

5.00 pm, close to ontime, 45 minutes only for STR.
"German Wings" on departure from the 3800 meters runway "Two-Seven-Right".
Cloudy all the way, 9 degrees and rain in Hannover. No,
this is definitely not spring and far, far away from summer
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201105.jpg
Cabin view, a good load here, 90% with lots of weekend visitors on the way.
Bright grey leather seats, clean so far.
26F, the last row window in theory, the new planes show no full window, no, I´am not amused.
The aisle seat is taken, the middle seat remains open
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201106.jpg
Cabin crew is one female, two male FA´s, all together young and biz friendly to say the least.
And the legroom shot.
Well, it´s a low cost company, isn´t it?. The legroom is definitely low cost style
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/D1201/D1201107.jpg
Cockpit crew is from Germany.
The FO welcomed us with a relaxed "Moin, Moin" in typical northern german style and more informations inflight. No route info, but flightlevel is maximum 23000 feet.
The boss

Touchdown at 25, very fast with heavy crosswinds, 5.55 pm, ontime. It´s significant warmer here in the south with 22 degrees, but the rainy theme continues!.

Let´s go for some conclusions now:
SK STR-CPH: Calm and comfy.
SK CPH-ARN: Free wifi onboard, welcome.
SK ARN-TXL: As comfy as a full flight could be.
4U HAJ-STR: Self reminder, no real window on Germanwings new planes and the last row.

Well, reaching my home camp not that long thereafter
and only some minutes later I saw the cellphone calling me with 737-800 on the screen?.
737-800 is the call centers number by the airline providing, at least as scheduled, the first and also very early flight tomorrow morning.
Well, as scheduled, if nothing goes wrong, more about this with the next story!.

And this is something what I´ve really looking forward to. Five legs for Wroclaw, Poland with local guidance.
Sounds good, isn´t it?. As long as it works in the end!.

Servus, comments welcome as usual, FLIEGER67 or "Markus Klaus Felger" by Facebook.

Hi nice report Markus .  

Didnt know SK had free wifi . Thats a nice bonus . Is it on just some routes ?

I like the design of the train station in Berlin . Seems the LH lounge will stay the old style with a new one at the new airport when it finally opens.

Thanks for the pleasant read.

Hola Markus!

A long awaited report of our last meeting in Berlin, probably next one will be the real BER opening. BTW, I read the other day that maybe March 17th 2013 is not the last date, have you heard anything about it?


Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Sure, I know, I´am the alien, the extraterrestrial guy just for a short visit to planet earth.

I am sure she will get used to that kind of routings if she keeps her post at STR for a time, strange you have not met her before...  

Nice to see the changing weather during your trip, I was lucky enough to escape Berlin's rain on Sunday.

SK seems to start offering a better on board service, including drinks and wifi which is a great offering considering where they come from; I guess they need to search for customers one way or the other, that is a positive move, from my point of view.

Great to have met you again during our Berlin dinner and after. I really enjoyed the meeting and looking forward to having a new one.

All the best.

Salut!

First of all it was a pleasure seeing you again in Berlin. It was a fun meet.
SK seemed to take good care of you, as they did of me a few months ago as well enroute to ARN.
Glad you managed to get the 736 as well.
I followed 4U with quite some interest as well, my next flight is actually with them in a few weeks

Thanks for sharing. Very nice routing indeed   I can imagine the looks of the check in lady.
Concerning the train part, for future travels, it can be worth checking if the airline offers Rail&Fly.
LH or AB (and others) do offer R&F for only 29 EUR and you can take (basically) any train you want to everywhere you want.

Hi Markus,

good to read about the Berlin meeting again. Too bad you had left before I arrived. You can still come to MUC next week.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
This one is in service with the airline since 23.01.2008 and it´s perfectly fitting named "City of Hannover".
32 examples are in the actual fleet.

Did it still have the name displayed anywhere? I think they removed all names some time ago.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
And the offers

Very reasonable prices.

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

Exactly my opinion that it doesn´t fit in for Berlin.
I will be in ZRH Sunday next week, so not sure if it´s possible to go also for MUC at Saturday.

The 4U fleetlist shows it this way.

Definitely.

Hello Markus!

Thanks for the story! It was nice to meet you in Berlin again! Maybe do some flying together later this year?

And a printout later I was send for the lounge with a nice bye-bye. It seems the staff is well trained here to interact with aliens like me!.

He he I would like to have been there to see the lady´s face!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The routemap today looks like, well, alien shaped

Looks like a great routing I think!

"Maria" welcomes me

Maria somewaht dosn´t feels like a Viking name?! A cutie anyway!

Pity the weather wasn´t on other side this weekend. You should be glad you didn´t stay in Stockholm any longer. On the Saturday it was only 4 degrees, very windy and a lot of rain 

Greetings
Robert
