Bonne journée, dear readers,

I´am back on track to present you a new story.
From the last ride in northeastern direction:

Exploring The Baltic Sea, German Style/RLG (by FLIEGER67 Oct 13 2012 in Trip Reports)

the game is now more heading southwestern side.
I´ve failed last year, due to personal reasons, with a visit to this place.
Hopefully more luck this time!.

The routemap looks like this:

http://www.gcmap.com/map?P=sxb-lys-bod-ory-sxb&MS=wls&MR=120&MX=540x540&PM=*

Thanx to, as usual:

http://www.gcmap.com/

And as usual again, there is a new departure airport to show, counted as no. 224:


Departure Airports II auf einer größeren Karte anzeigen

These are the latest done routes:


Tripreporters Flüge II auf einer größeren Karte anzeigen

And the previous 200 departure airports:


Departure airports auf einer größeren Karte anzeigen

No SXB visit this year till now.
So something to change immediatelly.

Service Air France AF 5781 operated by Airlinair
Scheduled: 13.25 // 14.40


09.00 am to start the trip. Is this really me?.
Well it is, but I promise only this time!.
Looking forward to one of these tiny ATR 42´s like on schedule, hopefully.
OLCI works hassle free this time, no printout, I should catch the paper at the airport self service kiosks, what works also well in the end.
The fare is 60.00 Euro´s booked together with the second leg today by Wideroe.
Some time on the road this Saturday morning. Not to talk about all these vacationeers from Denmark, Sweden, ah, these yellow license plates from the Netherlands here and there, Belgium, sure and also, no caution, well experienced right hand drivers from England, beside thousands and thousands of Germans, anyone forget?.
And me, the lonely guy with the as simple as possible mission to be at the airport ontime. Side by side, car after car, heading on the Rhine valley motorway southbound.
But well, anyway arrived at the airport more or less as expected. By now to the car at P3, see you tomorrow, hopefully and further on for a view to the screen.
No inbound here fitting to my flight
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203002.jpg
But good to see something on the departure board like the service from gate 3
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203004.jpg
There is still no lounge at SXB and there is also no time to wait at security.
The weather is nice here. No, stop, it´s super nice,
that´s the way it should be during August.
23 degrees, sunny, no clouds all around.
And also the plane fits perfectly to my needs
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203005.jpg
An under the wing shot, sure a real exception for me!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203006.jpg
The undercarriage ATR style
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203007.jpg
Well, what about some red or blue colours?.
No, that is not really that expensive!.
Now boarding for F-GVZD.
And yes, this is the scheduled ATR 42-500, leg no. 11 here. Definitely something new to me.
On the way since 16.03.1997 with Air Litorral twice, Air Botswana, Eurolot und finally Airlinair.
16 planes on type are in the fleet actually
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203008.jpg
1.20 pm, short ahead to schedule. 1.00 hour to go for "Airlinair" southbound now from the 2400 meters runway "Zero-Five".
Cockpit crew is from France, the captain with a nice and detailed welcome after boarding is completed.
He´s once more short to hear during approach later on.
Legroom is acceptable, 11F and two seats for me
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203009.jpg
The load is 80%, no suits to see, but three of the guys who usually sit more upfront, also on the plane.
Ah, yes, "Consignes de securite"
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203010.jpg
Cabin crew is one young and cute female FA, brown hair, well, sure I like France!.
This is an interior view with the dark grey leather seats. Well used to say the least, but clean so far
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203011.jpg
Service is a towelette, free drinks and snacks twice, really good on such a shorty flight.
Montana, sure I will go this way
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203012.jpg
Superb weather to fly on today
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203013.jpg
A right hand turn directly above BSL/MLH/EAP, no flightlevel info
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203015.jpg
And an airport in the distance, LYS of course
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203016.jpg
Touchdown at the 4000 meters "Three-Six-Left". 2.30 pm, ten minutes ahead to schedule, 25 degrees, the sunny theme continuous, lucky me, no clouds to see at all!.
This is an CRJ100, something for me, too
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203017.jpg
Me and always these under the wing shots.
Headshaking!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203018.jpg
Bye now for F-GVZD, sure nice to meet you with these weather conditions
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203020.jpg
35 minutes connecting time only now. Is this really enough?.

Service AF 5781 operated by Air France
Scheduled: 15.15 // 16.20


Up the stairs for a view to the screen,
Gate 21B for Bordeaux, no remarks
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203021.jpg
Well, the A318 is on schedule here
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203022.jpg
Leg no. 14 on type.
Something new?. Not at all. Done on CDG-TRN and also STR-CDG.
18 examples are in the fleet and this one is in the air since 07.11.2003.
And this looks like my gate
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203024.jpg
A very shorty visit for the lounge opposite the gate seems possible. Done, just for fun and feels good when they call for boarding at the same time.
The fare is again 60.00 Euro´s.
Let´s go now with these nice AirMed plane at the gate beside
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203026.jpg
Cockpit crew is from France. The captain with a nice short welcome after boarding is completed.
No route or flightlevel info.
3.20 pm, short after schedule, "Airfrance" on the go for the 50 minutes Atlantic bound. Departure from "Three-Six-Left" like arrivals.
"Consignes de Securite", sure once more
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203027.jpg
Nice weather to fly, isn´t it?. 25 degrees, sunny no clouds, perfect
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203028.jpg
10A, the exit row for me, legroom is sufficient here.
Dark blue fabric seats, clean so far.
Well, there are all three seats open when I´am boarded as one of the last pax.
I do not change seats without contact to the FA´s. And as long as I´am in a conversation with these supernice, looking like from the French Carribean Islands, female FA, there is an elder woman deciding self service for the exit row window.
Well, the FA forced here to leave the seat again and secured it for me.
Not that the woman is really amused about it.
The middle seat remains open in the end with the woman in the aisle and some angry looks to me.
Life is like that, or not?.
The load is very close to 100%, mostly vacationeers on the way for the Atlantic coast this Saturday afternoon
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203029.jpg
Cabin crew is one ok style senior male FA and one elder and nice female beside the earlier mentioned really nice one!.
Service is snacks and free drinks.
Touchdown at the 3100 meters "Two-Three", 4.20 pm, ontime and partly cloudy.
Partly cloudy, hey, where is the sun gone?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203030.jpg
Leaving my seat
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203031.jpg
And by now for F-GUGB
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203032.jpg
Well, heading for the city now.
There is a bus service called "Jetbus". The fare is 12.00 Euro´s return. Somewhat steep from my point of view.
The way to go now for me with the main train station as target.
And some meters only to walk later on till the Campanile Bordeaux Centre Gare Saint Jean.
This is for sure an expensive city, the fare seems ok here with 89.60 Euro´s B&B, free Wifi included.
Functional to say the least
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203037.jpg
Room first view
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203033.jpg
The bathroom
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203036.jpg
Let´s go for a tour. This is the Gare Saint Jean
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203038.jpg
Ahem, should I ride a bike the next time?

Service Air France AF 7308 operated by Brit Air
Scheduled: 15.50 // 16.50


Two security rows at the entrance for the gates open.
Well, join the wrong one, as usual, isn´t it?.
Three heavy african ladies, not that really prepared for travel ahead, so it seems.
Unbelievable what they carry all around as cabin luggage.
Well, the elder security woman asked me, if it´s possible to show them my liquids bag.
"Ladies, this is the way to do it the next time!"
and pushed me in front at the other queue!.
What about gate 10K?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203108.jpg
And this one?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203109.jpg
The plane is at the gate, but nevertheless a 15 minutes delay on the screen
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203111.jpg
Well, I´am close to sure that there was a small lounge here in this gate wing, but never more today.
And yes, the elder lady at the AF customer service desk confirmed it.
She immediatelly handed me a voucher for the bar and something to eat and drink, impressive.
I know these black spots, strange tinted windows here, but the Cubana IL-96 is really worth it to show
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203112.jpg
Such a special plane
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203113.jpg
Boarding now for F-HMLE
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203115.jpg
Ah, this is Brit Air
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203116.jpg
And also the scheduled CR-K
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203117.jpg
Leg no. 9 on type, nothing new to me with SXB-LYS, my first ever CR-K flight and LYS-SXB on this machine in the log.
With Brit Air since 26.01.2011, one of 13 examples in the fleet.
4.25 pm, 35 minutes late in the end, "Britair" on the way for the 40 minutes SXB bound. Departure from the 3650 meters runway "Two-Four". 25 degrees and partly cloudy here.
Cockpit crew is from France.
The FO is on the speakers during boarding with detailed infos and apologized for the delay.
The aircraft is coming in late, but also one of the crew members coming in some more minutes later.
CCM maybe next year
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203118.jpg
Cabin crew is one nice male FA together with a middle aged female, oh la-la, blonde, cute, not that large. I love to travel around France, definitely!.
"Consignes de Securite" for the last time today
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203119.jpg
1F and two for me. Legroom is good here with the bright grey leather seats. The cabin is clean so far
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203120.jpg
The load is 60%, vacationeers and some biz people only
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1203/F1203121.jpg
The FO is on the speakers again, really nice with arrival and weather details inflight.

Heading for the car park, where the car is where it should be and soon thereafter on the motorway with all these vacationeers on the way northbound.

Conclusions anyone?:
Airlinair SXB-LYS: Supernice staff and service.
AirFrance LYS-BOD: Sure a good seat for me, but not for everyone else!.
AirFrance BOD-ORY: Comfy, calm and relaxed.
Brit Air ORY-SXB: As comfy as it should be.

Just a couple of days to go now till the next trip.
Vacation this time southernside for Portugal.
But wait, no chance to go without a new departure airport on schedule!.
Vip flying anyone?. Well, we will see!.

Au revoir, I´am waiting for some comments,

Hi Markus,

you never get tired of AF short-haul hopping, do yo? Bordeaux looks nice.

And also the plane fits perfectly to my needs

Well, do you find that albino plane pretty?

Sure, why don't you book a flight on Air Méditerranée? You seem to be more often in France than in Germany anyway, so why not take the chance?

Hey Markus!

Thanks for the Bordeaux TR, doesn't look bad at all. Definitely looks better than Paris! Though I think nothing beats Toulouse and the Airbus factory  

An interesting mixture of aircraft as well, that was good to see.

If you like ATR42s you're welcome in Bucharest, there's a lot of them there.

Thanks for the wonderful report!

ONT was once the site of the World's Largest vineyard. There are still some vines to the south. But BOD looks nicer. Probably tastes nicer, too.

Lol, they certainly make interesting wines there, though I assume not as good as the red Bordeaux I just enjoy right now while reading your reports   ...

To spot something maybe special. For example these four engines in the background

Cool, Orly always seems to be good for some interesting birds. Great catch especially with the Cubana Ilyushin.
