The Sun Express B752W To Antalya

The Sun Express B752W to Antalya


http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/TR0901/TR0901010.jpg


Merhaba, dear readers

and welcome to my "catch the last sunray´s" trip.
It´s years ago since I was for the last time in Turkey and several reasons forced me to go now again.
One of them was the announced phase out of XQ´s good looking, winglet fitted B752´s.
Originally they planned to operate an all B738 fleet from the winter timetable on, but decided to fly these birds
a little longer.
The fare jumped around from close to 70,-- Euros up to more than 150.-- Euros, I´ve booked it finally for less than 100.-- Euros,
acceptable from my point of view.
And collecting one of Antalya´s leading five star hotels during a special promotion from one of our big tour operators
for unbelievable cheap 37.-- Euros halfboard makes it even easier to do that decision!.

Arrived back home from Italy some three weeks ago
Security Issues And Lufthansa Italia BRI-MXP (by FLIEGER67 Nov 25 2009 in Trip Reports)

it was time to go again.





Sunday, 22.11.2009

Light clouds, Temperature 3 degrees

Antalya-Havalimani, Sunny, Temperature 23 degrees
Duration: 2 hours, 45 minutes announced
3 hours, 5 minutes actual

Service XQ 151 operated by Sun Express
Scheduled: 09.35 // 13.50 + 1 hour time difference
Actual: 09.35 // 13.40
Gate: 343 Seat: 39A
Load factor: Around 90 %


No OLCI available at XQ´s website.
They sell seat-only tickets, but also lots of tour-operator packages, maybe the reason for that situation.
No traffic on the streets that sunday morning, parked at P2 and very good ontime in STR´s terminal 3, where I found some
20 pax waiting at three assigned desks. But finally only one was staffed around 2 hours prior to departure.
Some ten minutes to wait till it was my turn, the lady was somewhat stressed with people to check-in bags far above the weight limit, golf stuff, bike´s and else.
But me, with the small Rimowa alu case and the clearly announced seat question, window last row, brought a smile on here face.
"Window last row, ok, we will check it", was the answer. Secured, printed and some seconds later I was on the way trough security.
I was really shocked airside, the pax decrease clearly visible, parts of terminal 3 on the ground level closed for travellers and also the whole Terminal 4 area deserted, only some very few flights on the screen that sunday morning.

My plane was announced early inbound from AYT and parked finally at a finger gate.
Its only a small waiting area with no service at all, so lots of pax decided to stay away and proceed to passport control late, me too.
The result was, as soon as boarding was called, a long line formed at the single checkpoint, last call was on the screen with lots of people waiting. An announcement was to hear that the flight will be closed and finally me as one of the last pax boarded the plane.

TC-SNB was the registration, the welcomed B752 fitted with good looking winglets.
XQ operates three machines on type actually.
Delivered at 27.01.1994 to Aeromexico and further to Sun Express at 28.03.2006.
Leg no. 13 for me on the 752 and a new registration.
Some issues with a turkish family, at first sitting in 39D/E/F, the assigned seats for a young german couple and changed to 39A/B/C
which made me also not happy.
Some shouting to the FA in the rear cabin when they noticed that they had 39 B/C/D and can´t seat togehter.
The FA´s found another solution with me alone in 39 A/B/C, warm welcomed from my point of view.
Well, the FA´s, two female, three male´s, not that really friendly and interested during boarding and also later on.
Cabin impression was also not that good, dark blue slimline and very hard leather seats, good legroom but worn out cabin.
The purser announced later that the coffee machines gone out of order, also the mid-cabin-screens seemed only as a decoration there.

No time to wait at passport control and also only some minutes for my bag.
By, according to the drivers style, an express "taksi" to my hotel, some ten minutes from the airport in Lara.
"The Marmara Antalya" which offered me an upgrade to a larger room, real recommendable.
Some pics from the hotel and my short city break in the afternoon.

Hi Markus,

Very nice report and pictures - definitely a good idea to go to sunny Turkey when it starts getting cold in Germany. Prices for flights and hotels seem to be more than reasonable during this time of the year.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
One of them was the announced phase out of XQ´s good looking, winglet fitted B752´s.

Yes, really a rare bird.

Great report I enjoyed reading. Just one question. Why do you prefer the last row? Don't they have restricted recline?

Thank you and mostly no problem with recline, but always a good chance for a free seat or the whole row for me with the standard pax like to sit in the front of the plane.

Hi Markus,

Real nice read and pictures.

Seems a 757 is a good reason to travel, especially with winglets, still not been on a winglet equiped model yet.

The 100 euro fare is quite reasonable, though shame it was not snagged at 70 euro.

The seats look worn and none too comfortable, lucky you had the rest of the row free!

Looking forward to the next installment.

Best Wishes

Hallo Markus,

Good stuff once again. Very interesting read, as you know I'm booked on SunExpress as well next year. The November weather in Antalya doesn't look bad at all - a very good idea to catch some warmth and rays before the long gray German winter.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The fare jumped around from close to 70,-- Euros up to more than 150.-- Euros, I´ve booked it finally for less than 100.-- Euros,

The fare for my flight kept fluctuating as well. Maybe they adjust them based on package tour operators reserving/canceling blocks of seats.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
And finally my machine:

Beautiful. There's something special about the 757 - it is a very pretty plane. Looks sort of feline in a powerful way like a tiger, methinks. The winglets make it look even better (but those 767 winglets are even more impressive - these things are huge!). Here's hoping my January BT 757 flight won't get an equipment change.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Service was a cold plate and free beverages.

That's actually far more than I'd expected. I wonder what they will serve in my flight given that it is in the middle of the night with a departure time ex-SXF around 2.00 AM...

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
So, will I go on XQ again?. Sure, absolutely, or is there any airline which I will don´t fly again, not till now!.

Good point, even though I'd had my fair share of weird, very mediocre, uncomfortable and downright shabby airlines that definitely aren't my favorites I don't think I would be actively avoiding any of them.

Guten Morgen, Markus!

That's a very interesting report once again. Catching another B752, very nice! It's becoming more rare in the skies nowadays, but we can always book ourselves accross the Atlantic to fly one if we really want  Wink

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):

My seat:

Your headrest is missing! Was this not too hard for your head?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The next story will show you some pics from a only some days prior to my flights opened terminal and another not that well covered turkish airline here.

Let me just guess? Atlasjet? It seems Turkey is in the spotlight in last weeks. I'm finalizing a report too, OA260 went to Turkey also, and you, ... I think we all made the right choice, since Turkey is a really interesting and facinating country.

Regards,
Eric

Hotel is nice , rooms a bit different.

Hi Markus,

Great trip report, as usual. It's always nice to see a trip report involving a 757 in Europe. The breakfast looks ok, I didn't even know that XQ has a free board service.

Anyway, what happened to the headrest? Was it missing already or did you put it in your bag to take it home as a souvenir?  Wink Big grin

I'm looking forward to your next trip report!

Hi Markus,

So, I can see you've been busy again  Wink Great read as always....and with an offer that good, how you refuse some winter sun?!

I too like the 757 very much, it's a shame that it's getting rarer and rarer. Lucky that thanks to XQ changing their plans you were able to get another ride on one. The first impressions of the cabin certainly don't seem that good - broken monitors is a pet hate of mine - but at least the rest of flight was acceptable. The hotels looks very impressive from the outside, although I'm not too sure about the colour scheme in your room!

Looking forward to part 2 as always

Happy flying

Hi Markus,

nice report. Never flown SunExpress before, although I am checking regulary touroperator specials for 1 or 2 days to Turkey with a combination Sky/SunExpress, in order to get both airlines. Guess the 752s will be gone until then.

Looking very much forward to the continuation of your trip report.

Nice coincidence: I arrived on XQ723 (operated by Sky Airlines) from LEJ only five minutes later. However, I didn't see your aircraft.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The fare jumped around from close to 70,-- Euros up to more than 150.-- Euros, I´ve booked it finally for less than 100.-- Euros,

Still acceptable. I paid 69 Euro for the LEJ-AYT flight, booked ten days prior to the trip on DE's website.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The FA´s found another solution with me alone in 39 A/B/C, warm welcomed from my point of view.

Good for you! My flight was packed.

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

Hey, good to follow more comments.

nice report. Never flown SunExpress before, although I am checking regulary touroperator specials for 1 or 2 days to Turkey with a combination Sky/SunExpress, in order to get both airlines. Guess the 752s will be gone until then.

Looking very much forward to the continuation of your trip report.

Thank you and now I´am looking forward to some more real interesting Turkey journey´s.
The second part here coming up soon, anyone flown a BEKO plane recently?.

Wow, we should change schedules more often.
I saw several Sky planes at T2, my XQ machine was the only one during that time at T1.
