Salut, dear readers,

there is a new story to tell.
A difficult decision, should I go for France, Spain or maybe also the Basque country?.
Well, we will see!.

It´s just a week ago since I´ve reached the home base from a couple of days in Asia:

Four Props On A Pax Plane?. Yes, It´s The Dash-7!. (by FLIEGER67 Dec 8 2012 in Trip Reports)

And now it´s time to board a plane again.

A new departure airport is ready to count
with BIQ as no. 227:

Service Air France AF 5411 operated by
Regional CAE
Scheduled: 06.50 // 07.40


Ah, this looks like a relaxed 02.30 am wake up call!.
Relaxed?. Well, as relaxed as it should be with a day of travel ahead!.
The ticket is fixed by Wideroe to calm the fees down.
The fare per leg with stretch one and two is 65.00 Euro´s.
Not that I really expect OLCI available on this flights out of MLH. But try it, just for fun!.
No fun, no OLCI.
The nightly ride through the black forest is smooth, as smooth as possible with truck after truck on the way.
Take one over and see two more ahead, take one over and see three more ahead. It´s impressive how traffic changes during the last years with all these internet overnight deliveries, strange.
Ok, somewhat earlier than expected at MLH´s F3 to park the car. Hope to see you in the same state in the evening!.
The self service kiosk shows me my seat of choice available for leg one and two and there is also these nice young woman around catching some boarding papers from the machine. Nothing else expected by the way!.
What should go wrong now?. Welcome to a day of travel with nice companion, superb sunny weather and absolutely no turbulences a la francaise.
Just a minute at security with an extra Sky Priority entrance and heading for the gate to spot the scheduled plane type or not?

BIQ from gate 21A
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204023.jpg

16 examples are in the actual fleet.
Boarding now
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204028.jpg
Cockpit crew is from France, the pilot with a shorty welcome after boarding is completed.
No route or flightlevel info what seems the norm in France these days.
08.50 am, close to schedule, 1 hour, 05 minutes for the Atlantique by "Regional Europe" now.
Departure from the 4000 meters "Three-Six-Left".
The temperature is 11 degrees and the sky is cloudy.
I´am sure, the sun is stopped at our destination.
Legroom is good here in 20F, the last row window with these nice young woman in 19F and two for me again
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204030.jpg
Cabin crew is one young and nice male together with an elder ok style female FA.
"Consignes de securite". Should we really need something like this here?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204031.jpg
Cabin view, it´s clean so far till now.
The load is 90% with biz and other travellers like us, well mixed today.

Interesting planes on the apron, Air Austral and Europe Airpost

Now that´s something for me
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204034.jpg
Up for the blue sky
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204035.jpg
On former AZ metal, thanx for the suggestion!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204036.jpg
Looks like another nice flight, isn´t it?.
But soon after departure, just from a second to the other we enter rough air, really rough air. Not the best thing when we know that the FA´s started to serve snacks and something to drink just a couple of minutes ago.
Well, I´ve changed for row 19 earlier, the aisle seat and also these nice young woman in 19F is not that really happy with her full cup of tea. Better said with her former full cup of tea, spilt now on the tablet and somewhere else. The woman in 19A takes it not easier with her hot coffee all around.
Some minutes later everything calmed down with the smell of coffee left hand side and lot´s of paper towels to use right hand side. Thanx god we made it this way and nothing more serious happened.
Back now for the approach into BIQ
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204037.jpg
Sun everywhere, no clouds to see, or not?

Above the basque countryside with a shaky crosswind approach

And also an river close to BIQ
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204040.jpg
Touchdown on the wet 2250 meters runway "Two-Seven".

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204042.jpg
These mixed blue grey stylish leather seats are really comfy

Let´s go into town now, the 24 hours bus ticket is rather cheap here, 2.00 Euro´s only.
But the weather god´s are not really sure what to prefer today.
Sun and rain in a frequent mix.
Under the shelter in town along a rain shower

Cleared up, the sun is coming

And the rough atlantic waves
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204047.jpg
Still some rain showers around
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204048.jpg
Looks like much nicer with the sun out
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204050.jpg
No problems for the surfers, the more wind, the better
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204051.jpg
I´ve read about that the first surfers in Europe done it in Biarritz.
Let´s join the sunny direction
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204052.jpg
Strange waves, absolutely no problems

Up the hill
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204055.jpg
For a view
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204056.jpg
And the old harbour
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204057.jpg
Looks like nice with the sun above
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204058.jpg
Well protected from the waves
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204059.jpg
Small boats indoor
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204061.jpg
Imagine a ride on such a small boat in the rough waves
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204062.jpg
The basque fisherman´s harbour
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204063.jpg
Looks like nice, isn´t it?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204064.jpg
Dinner?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204065.jpg
Out for the next view point. It feels good to have some nice chat down by the, ok not the whole day, sunny sea
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204066.jpg
Well, not me down there
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204068.jpg
Really heavy waves
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204069.jpg
These bridge looks like somewhat old
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204070.jpg
Sun and people at the main beach
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204071.jpg
The guy´s at work!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204073.jpg

Paris-Orly from gate 5, not that I´am really amused with FR bound for STN at the very same time
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204074.jpg
There is a lounge available, airport operated, but the employees at the infodesk are not yet clear if it´s free with Diners or with an entrance fee, so not used this time.
Leg three and four are booked on one ticket again by Wideroe. The fare 65.00 Euro´s per leg this way.
Check-in at the self service kiosks immediatelly after arrival from LYS earlier in the morning.
Not that really amused again, definitely. Two security stations only available here and the queue growing and growing. We waited till FR and AF both called for pax but the queue is anyway much to long.
Ok, let´s join, me doing the slower one, as usual. Finally through for a pic to the plane at the gate.
No way to miss, also when the gate agents have some strange views now for us. Well, I´am used to it!
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204081.jpg

This is BIQ airside
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204085.jpg
Cockpit crew is from France. The captain with a short welcome only, after boarding is completed.
Well, no route or flightlevel info, nothing else expected.
Turning for the runway
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204086.jpg
Just departed from "Two-Seven", like arrivals, with a view to the city
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204087.jpg
Cabin crew is one elder ok male, one young and nice male together with three female FA´s. One elder and biz friendly, one middle aged, nice and one middle aged and ok.

Up for the clouds
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204090.jpg
The load is 80% with lots of biz pax on travel today.
Late boarding helps again here, 19F and three for me.
"Consignes de securite", sure
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204092.jpg
And the legroom, not that much available here
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204093.jpg
The thin dark blue fabric seats. The cabin is clean so far
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204094.jpg
Blue is what I´am looking for

Service Air France AF 7338 operated by
Brit Air
Scheduled: 18.00 // 19.00


And for a view to the screen.
No remarks for MLH, gate 30 by the way and no lounge here on offer in this area
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204098.jpg
Is this really the same security situation here again?.
It is, an extra station at the gate and a long queue ahead.
No way, better have some chat now.
And dont get me wrong, the queue is growing while we waited.
Growing and growing till boarding is on the screen and we joined.
Only to notice some minutes later that there are a good number of pax inside the gate area but no one decides to board the plane.
Well, these are the pax for the next flight and they are waiting for us now.
Let´s go downstairs for a view like this.
Not that there is any accordance with the planes registration and our destination
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204101.jpg
F-HMLH is the scheduled CR-K.
Leg no. 10 on type and also new to the log.
In service with Brit Air since 14.04.2011, 13 CR-K´s are in the actual fleet.
Some relaxed pics at the apron with the purser at the planes door.
I´am sure, he agrees with us, someone should be the last pax the board the plane, everytime!.
The CR-K looks good this way
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204103.jpg
Wing view
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204104.jpg
And what about these F50?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204105.jpg
Cockpit crew is from France.
The captain at the planes door during boarding and further on with short infos inflight in a nice style.
No route, nor flightlevel info.
6.10 pm, some minutes late, no duration info noticed, "BritAir" on the go from the 3320 meters runway "Zero-Eight".
18 partly cloudy degrees here.
Legroom is good with the bright grey leather seats.
10F, two for me, late boarding, you know. The cabin is clean so far and the load is 80%
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204106.jpg
Cabin crew is one elder, nice male together with one middle aged, large, slim, brown hair, good looking nice female FA.
"Consignes de securite", sure that´s important
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204107.jpg
And the cabin ceiling
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204108.jpg
Service, something new for me
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204109.jpg
6.55 pm, short ahead to schedule. Welcome back at runway "One-Five" with 16 degrees.
Ok, we and the clouds are back at MLH
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204110.jpg
And also the fitting reg is back at it´s place
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/F1204/F1204111.jpg
By now to these nice young woman.
Thanx for a great day together in the air.
Something to do again?.
Sure, at least from my point of view!.

The car is where it should be, unharmed!.
And made it also this way through the nightly black forest till the home base.

Conclusions anyone?:

Regional MLH-LYS: Calm and comfy.
Regional LYS-BIQ: Not calm, but comfy beside that.
Air France BIQ-ORY: Now it´s calm again.
Brit Air ORY-MLH: Smart and comfy.

Any idea, where Europe´s Kai Tak is located?:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/I1202/I1202085_zps59c52d93.jpg
I will check it soon!.

Au revoir,
comments welcome,

A great read for a beautiful end of the fall morning, sunny and unusually warm here, almost 20C. Wearing sunglasses as I write this on the sun  

Beautiful photos of your trip and Biarritz seems a great place to spend some days on holidays, especially if you like surfing, I know they have a great rivalry with some Basque towns in Spain: Mundaka is supposed to have the best waves... I am not keen on surfing but find it quite unsual here in Europe.

Planes look great, especially the LYS-BIQ sector, a really well kept and nice to here you did not get wet with your drink despite the rough air.

Looking forward to more readings in the coming Xmas' days.

Salut!

Roger

Nice report Markus!

As you know, I have been going to Biarritz annually for a few years now, so it was very interesting to read your view on it. Glad you enjoyed it!

Hi Markus,

A slight sense of déjà-vu here but an enjoyable read as always. Some more French domestics, sure, and some new regs in the log, excellent. And let's not forget that mystery guest of yours that day! Always nice to fly with some likeminded company!

Hi Markus,

I was waiting for this one. 4 different AF aircraft and a day by the sea, that sounds just like the sort of trip I'd like too!

How to enter a lounge french style?.
Simply knock the code secured door and if no one opens, join the next pax.

I need to visit that lounge again soon. My supply of French biscuits is dwindling.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The load is 90% with biz and other travellers like us, well mixed today.

I think the "others" category would be appropriate here!

19F is not that really happy with her full cup of tea. Better said with her former full cup of tea, spilt now on the tablet and somewhere else

Well said!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Some minutes later everything calmed down with the smell of coffee left hand side and lot´s of paper towels to use right hand side. Thanx god we made it this way and nothing more serious happened.

Hey, 19A needed more paper towels than 19F!

There is a lounge available, airport operated, but the employees at the infodesk are not yet clear if it´s free with Diners or with an entrance fee, so not used this time.

Dear me, the infodesk was not doing her job well here!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Only to notice some minutes later that there are a good number of pax inside the gate area but no one decides to board the plane.
Well, these are the pax for the next flight and they are waiting for us now.

I think that was theme of the day!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Service, something new for me

They are yummy.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Thanx for a great day together in the air.
Something to do again?.
Sure, at least from my point of view!.

Where do I book?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
these nice young woman.

Markus, if I were to give you 10Euros for everytime you used that phrase in this report, I think you'd have enough to fly to Australia with  

Happy flying

Biarritz looks nice and sunny. I miss the Sun nowadays.

Hi Markus!

Thanks for a nice report with nice pictures!

I have never been to Biarritz but it looks like a nice place to go for a day trip.

Flights look nice as usual on Air France but the legroom on the 321 is not so good. Reminds me of my flights on LH's 321's; very cramped.

So you didn't get the registration of the last flight ? That's really too bad.

Looking forward to your next report!
