23-24-25 Oct 2007 BGY-HHN-BGY-CIA-BGY-LTN-BGY

Fri Dec 28, 2007 7:12 pm

Maybe you're bored to read my TRs, but I decided to translate this one, too.....
I'm a little bit crazy and when I realized that Ryanair flights were sold for free I booked a lot of them.
So on Oct 23 I flew BGY-HHN-BGY, The next dat, Oct 24 BGY-CIA-BGY and the next day BGY-LTN-BGY

BGY (45°40'26"N 09°42'15"E) HHN (49°56'55"N 07°15'50"E) 339° (N) 509 km
HHN (49°56'55"N 07°15'50"E) BGY (45°40'26"N 09°42'15"E) 158° (S) 509 km
BGY (45°40'26"N 09°42'15"E) CIA (41°47'58"N 12°35'42"E) 150° (SE) 489 km
CIA (41°47'58"N 12°35'42"E) BGY (45°40'26"N 09°42'15"E) 332° (NW) 489 km
BGY (45°40'26"N 09°42'15"E) LTN (51°52'29"N 00°22'06"W) 316° (NW) 1010 km
LTN (51°52'29"N 00°22'06"W) BGY (45°40'26"N 09°42'15"E) 129° (SE) 1010 km

Total: 4017 km

Total paid, everything included EUR 0,24, of which 1 for BGY-HHN, 1 for HHN-BGY, 10 for BGY-CIA, 10 for CIA-BGY, 1 for BGY-LTN and 1 for BGY-LTN.

So I woke up at about 3,45 of 23/10/2007 and I went to BGY.
For the first flights of the day there were still dedicated check in desks, because shortly after first departure rush the desks change to “All flights” and queues become longer and longer

Oct 23 2007
Pax 82 (121 booked)
Delivered to Ryanair on 14.02.2006

Nonthing to say about the flight. We landed 20 mins ahead of schedule.
I have to say that Terravision is very honest, because onboard I bought a return ticket for central Frankfurt for EUR 14. I thought the journey was operated by Bohr which stops at FRA airport. But now there is Terravision with its own buses and they don't stop at FRA airport. They go directly to Frankfurt train station.
So I had to buy a Bohr ticket instead of a Terravision one. I explained it to the Terravision salesclerk in HHN and they refunded all the ticket price.
Very good Terravision!!!!

For the whole day the temperature was between -1 and 1 degrees, but really sunny.
Just arrived to FRA I looked for the pedestrian way to go to Zeppelin....., the place where you can see landings in a very good way. I usually reach that area by car, but I thought you can reach it on foot.
Unfortunately I didn't find it!!!! So I decided to enter the new T2 terrace but sincerelyt I didn't like it so much.... Airplanes are far and the view was much better on T1 terrace. The admittance ticket is EUR 4

Here are some pictures taken there



A small italian mouse....



Then I reentered the T2 and I looked for the supermarket which is very useful, and even cheap. A 0,50 L coke can costs EUR 0,75 (at CIA airport it costs EUR 2,50).

Here's the very beautiful train station located in the airport


Here are departures between 12 and 15!!! Impressive


McDonalds view at T2 (the terrace you see is the one open to the public).


T1, with a SAA crew departing


By now it's late and time to go back to HHN

Oct 23 2007
Pax about 100
Delivered to Ryanair on 04.02.2003

I landed on time, took my car and arrived home at about 23,30.

In the morning of 24 Oct I woke up at 5,50 to go back to Bergamo for my departure to CIA. This time I won't be alone, but we were 11!!!!

24 Oct 2007
Pax >180
Delivered to Ryanair on 16.11.2006

The flight is almost full and for the first time I found an Italian captain. The crew is really nice.

Which lakes are these?


Here's the landing


The weather in Rome was perfect and we enjoied our stay for the whole day.
We took the bus to Anagnina Underground station and then the tube to the city center.


In St. Peter's square the Pope was speaking so we couldn't go to the JPII grave. We decided to go to Piazza di Spagna and walk in the city center


Fontana di Trevi



IMPORTANT: Just in front of the fountain, on the left corner, there's a shop which sells sandwiches at a reasonable price and they're quite good.

Then we went to “Altare della patria”


Strange colors on those flowers


Via del Corso And Palazzo Chigi


The chambers of deputies


We walked on Via Condotti and then back to Piazza di Spagna


Then we went back to the Vatican to visit JPII grave.


Back to Anagnina And Ciampino.

The way from Anagnina and Ciampino is quite bad, the roads are broken and dirty. Very sad.

24 Oct 2007
Pax >180
Delivered to Ryanair on 02.02.2004

On 25 October one again back to BGY (departure scheduled at 9,55).
I had to check in with the “all flight” system, so the queue was long and I didn't like it


25 Oct 2007
Pax about 165
Delivered to Ryanair on 19.12.2005

The route was very strange

We took off (RWY 28) and we banked left as usual, but not just for a few seconds bu for about 180 degrees!!!!


Just like for Bratislava route!!! Then the airplane banked RIGHT!!!! Exacly on the opposite way south east instead of north west!!! I was a little bit worried

But then, after about 2 mins the airplane banked left for 190-200 degrees on the right way to London.

These are the Alps


Onboard I bought Terravision tickets to Victoria for EUR 21.

We landed in LTN the Easyjet reign


There's a very long stroll to do to reach the exit

The bus journey to Victoria is nice, because it passes in a lot of small towns

I had a very short time to stay in London and it...rained.....

I took Buckingham Palace road to Buckingham Palace


A vist to the monument of Canadian close to Buckingham Palace



I son't know why there were all these Saudi Arabia flags


The park to Whitehall


The Big Ben


Whitehall back to Trafalgar Square where there's a show or something like that



Then I went back to Buckingham palace and Victoria coach Station

At Luton I made check in.

Here are Luton check in desks


Outside Luton is not nice, but inside it's ok, with a lot of shops

But the way to reach gates is loooooong

25 Oct 2007
Pax about 180
Delivered to Ryanair il 19.12.2005

The flight departed at 20,05 instead of 19,25, so we landed at BGY 30 mins late.

Very, very tired I went back at home

Ciao Ciao.

Wow. Nice TR and pics!  Smile I'm never able to do that in USA. All the flights are so expensive now! The closest thing is the Rapid Rewards with Southwest Airlines and they're making it harder to get free flights.  sigh
