My 300th Leisure Flight: Summer In Germany

Sun Jul 22, 2007 11:51 pm

My 300th leisure flight: Summer in Germany


Hello, dear readers,
time to write down another story.
Some weeks ago, I noticed in my log, that leisure service number 300 is not far away.
As I want to complete this number ahead to the summer holidays, I´ve secured a short trip around germany.



Tuesday, 17.07.2007
STR (Stuttgart-Echterdingen) - HAJ (Hannover-Langenhagen)
Duration: 40 minutes
X3 370 operated by Tuifly B737-700 D-AHXD
Scheduled: 07.15 // 08.20
Acutal: 07.50 // 08.30
Gate: 313 Seat: 27F
Loadfactor: around 80%
Fare: 46,20 EUR

History:
Delivered to X3: 21.06.2007

Leisure flight no. 8 on the 737-700 and the first on this machine.


Hannover was a white area on my map, fare and time ok, so that will be the starter for this trip.
Up and away by car, at the airport at around 06.00 am, boarding was announced for 06.45 am, check-in was done at home,
the night before, without problems, this time.
Earlier a 73G was announced, changed to the 73W late monday.

A nice STR visitor in the background:

The An 124 on the cargo apron again:

No time to wait at T3 security. Gate 313, that means a bus gate, on the upper level, but down the stairs to the ground.
Boarding was ontime, the bus filled up and surprise, D-AHXD awaited me on the apron, a real baby machine, age, three weeks only.

Welcome to D-AHXD:

Sunny STR boarding:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07007.jpg

Rear door boarding, as usual, two male, one female FA´s on this service. Cabin crew was nice.
A short welcome from the flightdeck during boarding, the pilot seems not to enthusiastic this morning.
The cockpit crew from germany.
Taxi for a runway 25 departure, I count eight planes ahead, hey, this is not Heathrow!.
The cabin clean, modern style, fitted with new style fabric recaro seats in mixed colours.
One short info from the flightdeck while on cruise over PAD, nothing more, no map system.
No special service. Calm flight.
Touchdown on HAJ´s runway no. 27L , ten minutes delayed, mainly about the long departure queue at STR.
Airbirdge deboarding.

More clouds at HAJ:

D-AHXD from the groundlevel HAJ:

HAJ has a direct train connection to the main station, so further to the city center.
Some impressions from lower saxony´s capital:

The opera:

Modern architecture, AFAIK NordLB:

The new town hall:

And the old one:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07016.jpg

And what about this?:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07015.jpg


With Deutsche Bahn´s special advertissement, EUR 29.-- for a oneway trip in germany, it´s easy nowadays to fill the gaps between
your flights.
I leave Hannover at around 12.30 am by the ICE, high speed train and arrived short after 2 pm at Berlin´s new main station.
A nice ride with the view on both former parts of germany. By bus to TXL airport, where I arrived at around 3 pm.






Tuesday, 17.07.2007
TXL (Berlin-Tegel) - FRA (Frankfurt-Rhein-Main)
Duration: 50 minutes
AB 6559 operated by AirBerlin B737-800 D-ABAS
Scheduled: 16.55 // 18.10
Actual: 17.20 // 18.10
Gate: A06 Seat: 31A
Loadfactor: Around 80 %
Fare: 83.-- EUR

History:
Delivered to AB: 11.02.1999

Leisure flight no. 28 on the 737-800 and the first on this machine.



Check-in was also done the night before, no problems, so no need to hurry, especially when you know the gate system in TXL´s main building.
There is a separate security check at every gate, and the gate areas much to small for nowadays needs.
There was a new terminal just opened and from the upper stair level it was nice to follow the apron activity.

Bulgarian Air Charter on the way to Burgas:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07019.jpg

And finally departed:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07020.jpg

A-300 arrival from FRA:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07021.jpg

The one and only Germania plane in Germania colours heading for IST:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07023.jpg


My plane was announced with a ten minuted delay arriving from LED/St.Petersburg but after I followed the touchdown of a 738, I´ve checked the screens again
and noticed that this was my machine to FRA, in the end arrived some minutes early.
Ok, to the gate, no time to wait at the secuirty there, the area crowded as expected, the door to the next gate also open, but with another LH 737 to STR, not more space at all.

TXL: My machine at the gate:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07024.jpg

Boarding ontime by an airbridge, the last rows first, four female, one male FA on this service, friendly so far.
Departure from runway 26L via Erfurt to FRA. Another calm flight. Flightlevel 28.000 ft.
The map system on the screens during the whole flight.
A real friendly welcome from the german flightdeck crew during boarding and later more info´s when we cruised, good job there.
The machine fitted with dark, grey fabric seats, ok conditions, legroom was better than on X3 this morning.
The FA´s served snacks and beverages, also free magazines during boarding.
Arrival ontime on FRA´s runway 25L , taxi to the apron in front off T2 and parked beneath another company A320.

And finally at sunny FRA:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07025.jpg

Deboarding at FRA:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07026.jpg

Bye-Bye D-ABAS:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/HAJ07/HAJ07027.jpg

By bus to T2, via the Skyline to T1 and ontime at the long distance train station to reach my ICE, booked for another 29.-- EUROS,
back home to STR.



So, time for my opinion about leisure leg 299 and finally 300.
Both airlines provided nearly ontime services, the fare on X3 was lower, AB was more expensive but acceptable at all.
AB has the more enthusiastic cockpit crew, while the cabin crew was nicer on X3.
Ok, difficult, I think I will go for 300 or so more flights to improve my opinion!.


Comments welcome, also the short one´s.

Hi Markus,

Congratulation on passing the 300 mark! That alone leaves me so enthusiast to fly more and more. I am standing at 114 at the moment.  bouncy 

Nice photos as well. They make me miss Germany so much. I was in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Mainz, Wiesbaden and Berlin back in 2004.

Hi Markus,

congrats to your 300th leisure flight!!!  bigthumbsup 

Nice report and great pics once again. You were really lucky to fly on such a brand new plane like D-AHXD.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Hannover was a white area on my map

The same with me - I know neither the city nor the airport. I only know the train station from passing by there by train.

By the way: was there any particular reason why you didn't take a direct AB-service TXL-STR in the evening but instead headed for FRA first and then took the train again? Did you also want to visit FRA or was it just for fun? Or did you also want to include some more train rides in your trips?

I'm looking forward to trip report number 301!  Wink

Regards
Christoph

Quoting Contact Air (Reply 2):

Yes, there are several reasons to go not on TXL-STR:

- This route is one of the best covered in my log

- The fares for the afternoon services are not cheaper than into FRA

- But especially, I like the international atmosphere at FRA

Sounds like a nice round trip you did. I didn't know DB had this E29 offer, so good to know and very tempting particularly as it seems you can use the ICE.

Happy flying!

Hey Markus,

Congrats on the "300" milestone matey!! You sure have been doing a lot of flying this year and giving us lots of great reports to read.

Funnily enough I've been home for about half an hour after having a long weekend in Germany - DUS and FRA to be precise. I even did a quick trip on the Skyline, just because I had the time and I could - but preferred the Skytrain at DUS though! Seriously bumpy flight back to LHR this evening though...trip report to follow shortly.

Cheers.

Andy.

Nice pics.

Can't wait to come back to Deutschland this winter. (Dec. 25 - Jan. 20)

I was there last year with my brother first time ever. I have lots of family there so I'll be there every year from now on. I loved it there.

This time I'm coming with my whole family. We'll be staying in Bielefeld, Herzebrock, Weiden and also Stuttgart.

I agree 100 %. When I think back to my travels 10 years ago thats really unbelievable how much the market changes
during the last years.
What will happen during the next 10 years, Ryanair to Australia ?.

need your input and expertise. Will be in Germany on holidays in October and may need to travel to Leipzig for a day or two on business. What would be my best option/airline for HAM-LEJ ? Thanks in advance for the input.

Hey, Peter,

no problem!.

LEJ is well connected with CGN/DUS/MUC/STR, but always early/late flights, that means not ok when you depart/arrive
at HAM.
No direct flights between HAM and LEJ.
The best opinion is from my point of view, the LH connection via FRA, that starts at around 40.-- EURO´s per leg
during October with interesting aircraft like the A300/600 included.

Gratuliere!  Wink I'm already waiting for flight No. 301 Big grin

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
With Deutsche Bahn´s special advertissement, EUR 29.-- for a oneway trip in germany, it´s easy nowadays to fill the gaps between
your flights.

That's maybe the reason why I found too many passengers on board my ICE rides from Amsterdam to Basel SBB last weeks. Within Germany, some sections became really busy, which is not good for the comfort of the 'high-paying' passengers with reservations of seats. Every time again you find other passengers in your seat and you have to ask them to leave etc.
ICE is a wonderful trainservice, no words on that, but they shouldn't accept more passengers then seats.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Both airlines provided nearly ontime services, the fare on X3 was lower, AB was more expensive but acceptable at all.
AB has the more enthusiastic cockpit crew, while the cabin crew was nicer on X3.

I'll give my opinion in a few months as I have a X3 flight booked in October  Wink

I do not count it, biz is mostly domestic, around 20 per year,
often mixed with train rides, nothing special at all.

I think I will go for 300 or so more flights to improve my opinion!.

- Sounds like a good plan!  Smile

You were really lucky to fly on such a brand new plane like D-AHXD.

- Agreed, never even know they had that machine yet!

A late reply to a nice report. Once again thanks for sharing.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
no map system

I was already surprised when I found out that they didn't install any screens on their old B737-300. But not even on their new B737-700, which is frequently used on holiday flights? I'm surprised!

Regards, Alex.

So it is. Germania shows us the way to save money!.
The ST planes serve´s greek and also spain holiday destinations nowadays, not the best without any show in comparison to the X3 machines.
