Dear all

It was time to do a little holiday with my mother so we decided to go to Lisbon/Portugal for a few days. Flights and hotels were booked in no time over the internet and we were ready to go. Lisbon is a great place. Nice people, good food and great landscape. Unfortunately I missed to do some pics on the flight from BSL to LIS (landing over the city which is amazing) so I can only show you pics of the return flight.

After a good breakfast at the hotel we headed to the airport, only approx. 15 minutes away from the city center.


30.6.2006
easyJet Switzerland
EZS1098
Airbus A-319
HB-JZL
Lisbon-Basel

We checked in for our flight and got boarding group A:

Busy airspace. This one came pretty close. Anyone knows what airline this is?

Many lakes on this flight!

I believe this is Lake Geneva, where the Rhone river flows in near Montreux:

This must be Switzerland then!

Dedicated to fellow a.net user joelatbsl who shoots many great pics from this spot. Usually this is where the aircraft touch down but at the moment there are constructions going on and the runway is shorter.

Great report! Nice pics from the trip. That airline could be Air Macedonia? Their tail looks red, which reminds me of that airline's livery.

I would guess the Fokker 100 could be a Girjet ship, not sure though.

Hi, Thomas,
nice pix.
I was also in LIS some time ago, a good reminder.
Two EZY legs in my log later this year, so also interesting to read about their
BSL operation.
Greetings,
Markus (FLIEGER67)

Nice pics! The F100, indeed pretty close, I would also suggest it could be a Girjet, but I'm not sure.

I have just sent some pics to easyJet. They have competition running with their Gulliver bear. Maybe they print my pics into the inflight magazine and I win two free return flights Big grin

Nice pictures Thomas ! The bear photos are cool. I flew EZS to AMS last saturday from GVA, we are so lucky to have such a good airline based on our respective airport isn'it ?

Chambéry?

Yes

Correct, the place where the Rhone enters Lake Geneva is called Le Bouveret.

Cheers,

Whatever

Hi Alejandro

Thanks for your reply! Yes it is great to have easyJet in BSL and GVA. This was my 30st flight on easyJet and my thanks goes to them. Affordable fares, no severe delays so far, friendly crews and the baggage arrived every single time.  Smile

I see that they have just announced some good stuff for Geneva for winter schedule. Amsterdam to go twice daily, Lisbon to go twice daily and Madrid to go twice daily.  Smile Basel will most likely get a fourth daily flight to London (LGW this time). It is good to see them expanding and creating jobs...

Enjoyed my flight over the Geneva region. Next time I will sit on the left side to make a shot of Jet d'eau!  Wink Big grin

I have done 14 return flights on EZY and have had 2 cancellations (due to snow so out of their control). Apart from that I so far cannot fault them, and like you my case has always turned up!  thumbsup

RJ100,

I forgot to say, I love the piccies of Gulliver! Particularly the one by the fountain. I bet he was hot though in his fleece...!

Good luck in the competition
