This is my second trip report and I apologize for my English!!!
LO 0266 seat 1A(business class )
10 may 2002
At 7.00 we (my mother and I) toke a taxi to AMS. We checked-in at desk 2 in Departure 1. At the same desk people checked-in for a TP flight to Lisbon. We got our boarding cards ......they were printed on a LOT paper . Check in was efficient and fast. After this great experience we went through immigration and security screening. The security staffs, this time, were nice and they wished us a good journey. Because we had to wait 1 hour my mother went shopping and I went to the globe ground lounge. Nice lounge and very much to eat and drink. So I toke 3 cokes and watched some TV. After 40 minutes my mother came back with very much bags.....typical a woman . My mother toke some tea and we went to the gate. While we walked I saw very much planes:
-CX(A340) to HKG
-BA (737-400) to LHR
-IB (A321) to BCN
-KL (747-400,767,couple of 737's)
-TP (737-500) to Lisbon
-EI (320) to Dublin
-DL (777) to JFK
-AF (737) to CDG
-EK (747 cargo)
-SQ (777) to EWR
-LH (A320) to Frankfurt
-AZ (A321) to Milan Malpensa
And much more….
A KLM ASIA 747-400 had a smooth landing……oh I love to see that. I saw a SQ staff walking to a 747-megatop that flew to EWR and after that we saw another SQ staff walking to another gate for a flight to Changi. And the funny thing was that they spotted each other but they didn’t greet . After this strange moment I saw the LO 735 at the gate, nice aircraft! The first announcement was that the flight was delayed for 10 minutes. 10 minutes later again an announcement, in Dutch, English and Polish, that business class passengers can go on board. And we did!!!!!!!J We were welcomed by a F/A and she showed our places. I must say the cabin was very nice with elegant blue seats and it looked very spacious. The F/A offered me a glass of orange juice and some peanuts on a little golden tray. Very elegant! I read the in-flight-magazine and the F/A offered me again something to drink. I took my fourth coke of that day and she served again a selection of little snacks. It looked very nice. The business class was very empty and economy too. Maybe that’s the reason why they served me a drink 2 times . Then we taxied to runway 3 or 4, I can’t remember. On the TV screens they showed the safety instructions, clear and simple. The take off was heavy and smooth and I saw Schiphol from the air and it is a very big airport. Then the service started and they served the dinner. It was very good: French fries, some meat, a salad with dressing, a warm roll and a fruit salad. They also served a drink of course and champagne was possible but I didn’t take some cause my ageL. They showed on the TV screens some comics and TV programmes: FRIENDS . After an hour and half they served some ice cream with fruitJ. After this the landing began. I fastened my seatbelt and looked at the window down. Nothing to see. After 15 minutes we arrived at WAW …I saw an Austrian Airlines F70, KLM 734, LOT 767,AF A320 and a LH A321. We left the plane and all the F/As were smiling at the exit and said: we hope you had a good flight. They were really nice!!!!
I conclude that this was an excellent flight. The service, food, crew and entertainment all!! I heard LOT is becoming a Star Alliance member…..is that true?? Well if it’s true…..Star-Alliance will have a very good new member. I really love LOT
I hope you enjoyed my report and sorry for my English
