Aurigny And Flybe: ACI-GCI//SOU-FRA

Sat Jun 20, 2009 7:36 am

Aurigny and Flybe: Alderney-Guernsey-Southampton-Frankfurt

Hello, once more, dear readers,

there is a story
Cruisers And Trislanders / Rotterdam To Alderney (by FLIEGER67 Jun 13 2009 in Trip Reports)

to continue here.
Time now to fly back from Alderney to Guernsey, cruising further to the UK and flying back to FRA.



Saturday, 23.05.2009
Alderney (ACI) Cloudy, 14 degrees
Guernsey (GCI) Cloudy, 16 degrees
Duration: 15 Minutes announced and actual

Service GR 259 operated by Aurigny Air Service
Scheduled: 14.40 // 14.55
Actual: 14.40 // 14.55
Gate: Only one at Alderney Seat: No markers
Load factor: Around 30%

At around 2 pm one more Trislander arrived at ACI. It was again G-BEVT inbound from SOU.
Ok, so I´ve thought, the same reg, but it´s a Trislander.
No way and real good, G-BEVT done the next leg to SOU and another machine arrived for our flight back to Guernsey.
It was G-RLON, a 1975 built example, not bad.
Leg. no 2 on the Trislander on two different regs.
Boarding was called, security was nearly outdoor, up the stairs to the small apron and boarding the Trislander again.

Another ontime departure here on the way crossing the channel bound for Southampton.

Arrival in the early morning, deboarded the ship, some six hours till our departure. What to do now?.
We reached the airport by train, asked at the desks if it will be possible to check-in our bags. No way, was the answer.
So, stored our bags for 5 pounds each at the luggage desk and travelled further by train to nearby Winchester for a view into the city and the cathedral.

Lots of Flybe services here at SOU. Some 6 to 8 self service kioks where I´ve decided to check-in.
The last rows taken, so I´ve decided for the second last row this time.
Bags checked-in, passed security with nearly no time to wait and in the modern, but not that large gate area.
There is a nice viewing area upstairs with seats facing directly to the runway and the apron, not bad.

Two Flybe Embraers and lots of Dash´s coming and going, G-ECOJ was finally our machine to FRA today.
Delivered to Flybe at 10.01.2009, one of 50 Dash 8-400´s in the fleet. Leg no. 4 for me on that type.
Boarding was called and we walked to the plane, no problem with these nice weather conditions.
One male, one female in service, both business friendly.
The captain from the UK with a friendly welcome during boarding.
The cabin good looking with its bright blue leather seats, clean , legroom ok, comfortable.

Final approach TG744:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB0901/SOU09208.jpg

A long taxi, parked in front off terminal 2, bus deboarding, some minutes at passport control and further on the way to catch the shuttle
back to Tourcare.

Only positive impressions around these trip, the cruise on the Norwegian Jade, superb,
Trislander flying, real good and also the last leg on Flybe, recommendable, much more interesting than the ususal Airbus machines and also one of the reasons to book this flight to FRA.

Comments welcome,

Hi Markus

that's another interesting trip. You've been doing some good planning to score the most interesting.
You're right about the Q400... much better then the usual stuff in Europe. But so far, I still didn't manage to get on one myself  Silly

Hi Markus,

Another great report you have got here.

Flying with a Trislander just gives you an intimate feeling as you are seated straight behind the cockpit crew.

Wow, I did not expect that the taxiway of SOU could be that narrow. It must have been amazing to see a 757 passing over it.

Hi Markus,

Excellent read as always. It was a nice surprise to see some pictures of Winchester, not a place I've visited but of course famous for its impressive cathedral.

Also good to read about FlyBe, a trip on one of their winter charters from Berne is still on my to do list. Maybe I'll succeed this coming winter!

Glad you had such a successful trip with some special aircraft!

Happy flying

Hi Markus,

Interesting return journey! It's a shame that you didn't have time to have a look around Alderney, it really is a lovely island - it always reminds me of simpler times!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
It was G-RLON, a 1975 built example

Strangely, it was that very same plane that was the subject of the one and only photo of mine that a.net has ever accepted! At the time GR had most of their Trislanders painted in corporate liveries...RLON was painted for Royal London Asset Management (what came first, the corporate sponsorship or the aircraft registration??!). I had a different username back then, and obviously the photo screeners had lower standards too! Big grin

Hi,

Another great report and a nice conclusion for the mini channel cruise.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
It was G-RLON, a 1975 built example, not bad.

I flew on the same plane JER-GCI back in November 2008. That was a fun flight as the early Sunday morning flight had only one single passenger: me. So it felt like a private charter. I sat on the right hand side just behind the pilot and had very impressive views, especially when landing to Guernsey.

The whole routing was HEL-LGW-JER-GCI-LGW-HEL, with BE Dash down to Jersey and a GR ATR-72 back to Gatwick. An interesting mix of carriers and types for a weekend.

I'd like to go back sometime soon, still would like to fly at least Blue Islands (and maybe even the Dornier) and log ACI as well. With AB operating DUS-JER during the summer season the Channel Islands are becoming more accessible nowadays.

Nice to read about the second part of your journey as well. Again an interesting story and some great pictures.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Flybe, recommendable, much more interesting than the usual Airbus machines and also one of the reasons to book this flight to FRA.

I agree, the Dash 8-400 is a nice change from the "standard aircraft" like the B737 or the A320. In recent times, the Dash 8-400 has become more present at our home airport STR as well, with now MA, OS, AB, BE and LH / Augsburg Airways operating this type of aircraft into STR.

Quoting Contact Air (Reply 16):
I agree, the Dash 8-400 is a nice change from the "standard aircraft" like the B737 or the A320. In recent times, the Dash 8-400 has become more present at our home airport STR as well, with now MA, OS, AB, BE and LH / Augsburg Airways operating this type of aircraft into STR.

Exactly my opinion and indeed the 8-400 going more popular here at STR.
