HEL-ARN (Stockholm) dep. 05/01/2001
AY933 DEP.0745 ARR.0745 (i hour flight, time difference)
got to the airport at 7am was very tired and very hungover since i only slept two hours and was out clubbing the previous night. Well went to check-in and found out that the plane was full so i was put on stand-by (again..see.Hel-jfk-hel) well went to the gate to find out that the plane was completely full so once again i ended up in the cockpit jump-seat since it was the only extra jump-seat on the md-80. Took my really cramped seat between the pilot and co-pilot. Took of in schedule. had a beautiful view when we got to cruising altitude, sun was shining and pretty blue sky. F/A came and offered me a salmon sandwich from c-class which i refused beacuse i was feeling very sick...had only one glass of water the entire flight. Fater 30 mins we started decending to stockholm Arlanda Airport...landed in time, waited for the other passengers to leave at the cockpit door and noticed that everyone was staring at me like " was he in the cockpit?" anyway then went throught passport..well they didnt even check my passport..and then jumped on a shuttle bus to town...

decided to try SAS this time since i always fly this leg on Finnair. Well went to check-in only to find out that, suprisingly, i was on stanby(again!!). So well, went to the gate and noticed about 10 other satnd-bys...we all waited untill 10 mins before departure befored they called us i got my seat which was very luckily 7F so i was seated in SAS EuroBusiness Class. The cabin wasnt really more spacious han econmy. Food was okay..Got salmon..(cold though) with some potatoe salad and strawberries had a bit of champagne and a oj and then we allready landed. Had only hanbaggage so headed through passport to the taxi staion and took the taxi home....
that was it!
