Four In One!: STR-CDG-EMA-DUB-FRA

Sun Oct 14, 2007 4:39 pm

Four in One!: STR-CDG-EMA-DUB-FRA


Hello, dear readers,
well, after five months biz travel only, it was immediate time to fly for fun once again.
All detail´s booked around two weeks ahead to the trip.


1.
Tuesday, 09.10.2007
STR (Stuttgart-Echterdingen) - CDG (Paris-Charles de Gaulle)
Duration: 1 hour
4U 2400 operated by Germanwings A-319 D-AKNS in special T-mobile colours.
Scheduled: 06.30 // 07.45
Actual: 06.45 // 07.45
Gate: 325
Seat: 25A
Loadfactor: Around 50%
Fare: 46,19 EUR

History:
20.07.2000: Delivered to US Airways
07.09.2005: In service for Germanwings

Flight no. 28 on the A319 and the first on this machine.

As easy as it was to reach the airport ontime, as far I dislike these early morning departures.
The wheather was ok, cold and clear, lucky, no fog today.
4U offers online check in, I´ve experienced it for the first time and I will say, it was no problem,
sequence no. 3, that means I´ve secured the first boarding group.
Parked at P2, nowadays the cheapest opinion at STR, 5.30 am in T1, no time to wait at security and no problems,
so at the gate, ground level in T3, at around 5.40 am. No action these early morning time, so nothing else to do than sit and wait.
The agents arrived ontime at the gate, the bus also and perfectly ontime all pax with sequences 1 to 30 called for boarding.
A quick hop on the bus, a short drive to the plane and a surprise, the first time for me on the T-mobile machine.
Boarding only by the front stairs today according to the light load.
Three FA´s today, two friendly girls and one bored guy.
The captain welcomed us during boarding. He told us that a small technical problem needs to be fixed during the next ten minutes,
but he expected nevertheless an ontime arrival at CDG.
It seems the cockpit crew was from Germany.
The plane fitted with the bright grey leather seats, clean, good looking.
Some minutes later we´re ready to go from runway 07 and after a right turn to SXB we reached 24.000 feet cruising altitude.
No special service today. The FO was later on the speakers with some more informations, but it seems not that really enthusiastic.
Arrival on runway 27R at a slightly foggy CDG airport. We´re on the "right" side, so not that long to taxi.

Tuesday, 09.10.2007
CDG (Paris-Charles de Gaulle) - EMA (Nottingham-East Midlands)
Duration: 1 hour
WW 5252 operated by BMIBaby B-737-500 G-BVZG
Scheduled: 09.45 // 10.05
Actual: 09.55 // 09.55
Gate: 31
Seat: 12A
Loadfactor: Around 90 %
Fare: 58,42 EUR

History:
11.09.1991: Delivered to Linjeflyg
01.01.1993: In service for SAS
12.04.1995: Further to British Midland Airways
01.02.2001: In service for BMI
21.12.2002: And finally for BMIBaby

Flight no. 22 on the B735 and the first on this machine.

After lot´s of AF flights at T2 this was the first time ever for me at T1.
I felt like I was pushed by a time machine back to the sixties, small walkways, glass stairways, not that easy for the first orientation.
That whole thing reminded me, dont know really why, into a trashy german sci-fi series called "Raumschiff Orion/Spaceship Orion"!.
OK, boarding for BMIBaby was downstairs. Sorry, forgot to say that online-check-in was only possible for flights departing from the UK,
so the standard check in for me. Two counters open, only a african couple at one counter, a real friendly asian guy checked me in,
secured me one of the last window seats with sequence no. 50 and than I was ready for another ride through the stairways to my boarding satellite.
There is security at every entrance, it opened as I arrvied, no time to wait, no other flight earlier than mine.
Nice metall parked around, good to follow the activites there.

Some heavies at my satellite:

And finally my Baby arrived:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/DUB07/DUB07009.jpg

The plane arrived ontime and boarding was called soon thereafter.
Three FA´s on this service, one male, one female business friendly and a much more attentive girl as the third FA.
The captain welcomed us on the ground in a friendly way, it seems the flightdeck was from the UK today.
The machine itself shows its age clearly, dark blue oldfashioned, comfortable recaro seats, well used interior.
All markers in swedish also.
Departure from runway 27L, no time to wait there, no route info, flight level 26.000 ft according to the FO inflight.
He also prepares us for the "not that really nice" wheather at EMA.
In fact, we approached and nothing was seen at all, till short before a hard and heavy arrival on runway 27.

Baby deboarding at EMA:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/DUB07/DUB07010.jpg

Not that heavy rain, but for sure enough to deboard a plane by bus and further to the next queue outside the arrivals area
after all the pax from a short before arrived First Choice B763 from Cancun.

Tuesday, 09.10.2007
EMA (Nottingham-East Midlands) - DUB (Dublin)
Duration: 45 minutes
FR 539 operated by Ryanair B737-800 EI-DHA
Scheduled: 12.35 // 13.35
Actual: 13.20 // 14.05
Gate: 1
Seat: 26F
Loadfactor: Around 80 %
Fare: 30,48 EUR

History:
02.02.2005: Delivered to FR

Flight no. 31 on the B738 and the first on this machine.

That was my first time there at EMA and I was not that really positive impressed.
The arrivals area was not indoor connected with departures. Also no roofed way outdoor, that means another run through the rain to
the other part of the building.
Check in was done online for check´n go, so no queuing for this flight, sequence no. 1, the evening before.
No time to wait at security, no problems, all gates on the ground level, only a BK upstairs beneath some other restaurants.
Good views to the whole apron and the runway. Two Baby 733´s still parked at EMA, not in service this time.

My Baby ready for Jersey:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/DUB07/DUB07013.jpg

The rain level goes up and down, the usual UK system, gates only announced 30 minutes prior to departure, shop and relax was the info on the board.
Three FR departues nearly the same time, mine will be the first, according to the timetable.
But the first arrival goes to Pisa, the second to Limoges and mine was delayed to 1 pm.
Soon after the 738 arrived boarding started while the rain level rises up.

Arrival EI-DHA:

Rainy boarding at EMA:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/DUB07/DUB07019.jpg

Five FA´s, three female, two male on this service, not unfriendly at all.
It seems the male captain was from Ireland, the female F0 was from Italy. A welcome on the ground from the flightdeck.
Departure from runway 27, no info about route or flightlevel. The captain apologized later for the delay, he sounds stressed.

Crossing the Irish sea:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/DUB07/DUB07020.jpg

The machine fitted with the dark blue leather seats, clean so far.
Arrival on DUB´s runway 28 in much more better wheather conditions, sunny and windy.

And arrived at DUB:

Tuesday, 09.10.2007
DUB (Dublin) - FRA (Frankfurt-Rhein-Main)
Duration: 1 hour, 45 minutes
EI 656 operated by AerLingus A320 EI-CVB
Scheduled: 16.05 // 19.00
Actual: 16.15 // 19.00
Gate: 9
Seat: 5A
Loadfactor: Around 70 %
Fare: 38,49 EUR

History:
08.02.2001: Delivered to EI

Flight no. 33 on the A320 and the first on this machine.

I was in DUB for several times, but not during the last years, so it was interesting what´s going on there.
Online check-in was no problem on EI´s website, sequence no. 1 once again. A rather long way to go from the entrance to the terminal building´s main area.
Gate 9 was announced for the service to FRA, after the late arrival I´ve had a bit more than two hours to go for the next flight.
There was no security on the way to my next gate, I found a sunny place with a comfortable seat, so I decided to stay airside and enjoyed the sun.
Some thunderstorm clouds approached, but planes in and out so my flight was announced as ontime.
I remember another departure from this gate area to BHX on EI some years ago, I had to stay overnight sponsored by EI at BHX while BA to STR was departed
ontime and EI was late.
My machine arrvied and after a short tunraround it was time to leave DUB once again.

Taxi EI-CVB:

And ready for boarding:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/DUB07/DUB07028.jpg

Two female, two male FA´s on this service, all friendly. The machine fitted with comfy dark, grey leather seats, clean, good legroom, not bad.
A friendly welcome from the flightdeck during boarding, the crew was from Ireland.
Departure from runway 28 in direction Liverpool, Manchester and Amsterdam, some 30 minutes till we levelled out at 37.000 ft.

Cruiseflight:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/DUB07/DUB07030.jpg

Heavy traffic on this route:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/DUB07/DUB07031.jpg
Detailed informations inflight. No special service.
Some shakers while we reached the continent, nevertheless a calm flight.
Arrival on FRA´s runway 25L ontime, heavy brakes and taxi to the apron in front off T2. We had to wait till a AB A320 was pushed back from our stand,
by bus to the terminal, passport control today as announced on the bus.
I enjoyed some minutes more international atmosphere there at FRA and further to the train station by the skyline.
I was a bit scared about my last leg today, from FRA to STR on the ICE highspeedtrain while there is some strike action from the train drivers,
but lucky, no strike today. EUR 29.-- from airport to airport, not bad that Deutsche Bahn special fare.


So, time for my opinion/rating now:
1.) Aer Lingus: The best impression on this trip, no problem to call EI my no.1.
2.) BMIBaby: The service was ontime, the fare was ok, the plane was old-fashioned and that one female FA was top-notch, my no.2.
3.) Germanwings: Not that bad, but also nothing special, my no.3.
4.) Is there something lost?. Oh, sorry: Ryanair: As far as it fit´s in my schedule ok, but no way to go, if there is another acceptable possibility.


Comments welcome,

Hello Markus,

nice report and an interesting combo of four airlines (well, except for FR)...  Wink

How's the onboard sale on both WW and EI (prices, variety)?

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

Hi, PH,
thanx for your reply.

EI has acceptable prices, also seat reservation and the credit card fee is comparable.
WW is in all other terms more expensive, credit card fee 8.-- EUROS, seat reservation more than others,
onboard sale also.

Quoting PlaneHunter (Reply 1):

8 Euro credit card fee? Quite a rip-off. Haven't flown FR, U2 or others for a while - have they also increased the credit card fees or is WW's high fare an exception?

Great report as always Markus, many thanks indeed.

Pretty interesting route and airline choice, good to see EI appear to have a better quality feel than the real LCC carriers, yes I know EI is LCC these days, but I just feel they have slightly more class about them.

4 flight's in 1 day, hmm, I've only manged 3 before, though I've not tried more before, something to look at next year  Smile

Best Wishes

I was around 20 hours on the road last Tuesday, four different airlines, four times separate check-in and ok only three
times security. It was fun, but I was a little bit tired when I arrived back at home!.

Quoting Stylo777 (Reply 7):

For Tuesday, next week, was a trip STR-ATH-SKG-FRA booked, but as it happened so often during my travels,
a biz meeting shows up, so I rebooked it to mid-November. No chance for another trip till the Italy one
next month.
And FR, it fit´s perfectly into my schedule, so I´ve closed my eyes and pressed the "book now" button once again.
The first time on SkyEurope (VIE-TSF), it seems worth it to fly on FR back home again

Nice, send me a pm when you fixed the exact time  Smile

Hello, Bakersdozen,
the Concorde is on static display at CDG,
but from my point of view at T1 it seems it´s straight airborne again.

Really nice report and photos!

Glad to see you had a good flight with Aer Lingus and that they are your number one for this trip. I believe they are one of the better quality low fare airlines in Europe.

Hi viel-FLIEGER Markus  Wink

You beat me now, booking at a later time then me, but flying earlier. OK, you know I've tried 4 flights in a day last year, which failed due to a cancellation on my way (caused by snow in AMS), although I've to go again later this month on a 4-in-1  Smile We'll see how it will be going this time. I hope as good as it went on your trip!!

Good score of aircraft. Flying the T-mobile logojet was nice to my opinion, and to score a B735 nowaydays, you have to try WW or LH I think. OK, quite usual for you (as German citizen) but for me this type is more difficult to get on!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
He also prepares us for the "not that really nice" wheather at EMA.

I'm used to it... I've been in EMA as well, same weather  Wink

About EI, yes they're are quite ok, but a shame they went to a LCC strategy. I've been in Premier (C) class which was really supurb, for once, on a staff ticket. Other times in the current servicelevel, which was off course less in my eyes. But, to reach DUB, I've to take either EI out of AMS, or FR out of EIN. So they'll have a chance to see me back on board some day Big grin

Cheers,
Eric  wave

Hallo Markus!

Danke noch einmal für deine TR...

As usual interesting to see comments on different airlines and getting to know that their so announced cheap prices are not that cheap after all.

I was reading an article on today's newspapers about those confusions some airlines create on EU customers: confusing adverts, some 'lies' about their advertised free tickets....

There is one more day off in December, so we will see!.

The T-mobile logojet was indeed a nice surprise and also I thought, good decision, when I noticed the WW 735 on the CDG-EMA leg.

Quoting Airbuseric (Reply 16):
About EI, yes they're are quite ok, but a shame they went to a LCC strategy.

I´ve had several flights on EI, also in C, but all more than five years ago, so it was, after all that changes,
like a first flight for me

As usual interesting to see comments on different airlines and getting to know that their so announced cheap prices are not that cheap after all.

 checkmark  When you count all that taxes and fee´s together!

Hello Markus

Another interesting report- thank you!

4 flights in one day, not bad!  Smile I did the same earlier in the year (BSL-MUC-HAM-MUC-BSL) and it is great fun as long as all flights are more or less on time!

I see one of your next flights is on SkyEurope, one of my favourite airlines out there. I hope they treat you as well as they have treaten me so far!

Enjoy your flights and best regards

Hi Markus, very nice report indeed!

I was quite stunned to see the EI fare at only 38 euros only two weeks before departure - that's nothing basically  Wink

Your schedules were quite tight, so glad everything went OK! I truly hope you carry some money with you in case you miss a flight and have to buy new tickets back?!?

Did this ever happen to you at all? Can be quite expensive I would imagine.
Gotta write some own TR's now.....wasn't in the mood for years...but what the heck - yours are truly inspirational!

Congrats on scoring another logojet! The T-mobile one is a nice addition to your log!

I'm still struggling with my photobucketaccount, I hope to solve it one way or the other in the upcoming period!
So my TR is on it's way  Smile

Thanks for sharing again! I;m already looking forward to your next flying adventures!

Me too, usually the fare on the afternoon flight is more expensive, but it seems Tuesday was not that high demand.
