Blue and red take five and an A.net joint flight

Hei, dear readers,

arrived back from the Ukraine just a couple of days ago

Four Small Engines To Lviv/Ukraine (by FLIEGER67 Sep 7 2011 in Trip Reports)

It´s the end of June now and that´s usually the time to spend some days in Scandinavia.
S., the lazy guy from the scheduling department, booked five legs for me, touring around Denmark and mainly Norway. Sure, a new departure airport is important, but also some, hopefully, sunny flying around.
There is incidentally one short connection to fix the schedule. One of five, that should be no problem, at least due to Mr.S answer, when I´ve asked him!. We will see.
Any specialities on his table today?.
No question, Linie, the Aquavit that shuttled above the equator is there and now he is more than ready to follow me again!.

This is the updated log with the departure airports

and the latest routes

So, let me join the nordic skies and not only me, one of our local A.net colleagues decides also, that he is in the mood for some flying around!.

Service SK 668 operated by SAS Scandinavian Airlines
Scheduled: 07.00 // 08.35


OLCI works properly with LH´s website, the last row window for me, sure nothing else expected.
Boarding is on the paper for 06.40 am, my usual style today. Cell phone set for 04.00 am, on the road at 05.00 am and at the airport at 06.00 am. Pretty ontime and ready to go for the lounge or not?.
No, a quick sidestep to the First class desk is again important today. LH´s system doesn´t want to show my status, nothing new with the status change after booking. Solved within a minute by nice staff. The lounge now?. No!.
Let me show how S. booked these flight first.
A good offer by Exp.de shortened the fare down to 60.00 Euro´s, booked together with the return leg in the evening. Well, with these fares it seems hard to earn much money for SK, but anyway it´s good for me.
Check the screen first, no remarks for my flight from gate 159, the one SK takes usually for the overnighting plane
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101001.jpg
A new idea here in STR now, they opened a separate entrance for premium pax at the T3 security checks, so close to no time to wait for me till I´am in the gate area.
And finally yes, the Senator lounge is the place to go now.
Good for some more breakfast today
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101002.jpg
Comfy seaters and flat screen TV
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101003.jpg
A view outside, no rain, no clouds, but it looks really like STR with Germanwings on the apron and LH at the gates
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101004.jpg
Not that much customers that early morning time
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101005.jpg
Down to the groundfloor for an ontime boarding.
There are some technical issues with Gate 159, so quickly changed to 158.
Much to my surprise there are close to no pax at the gate, but I´am not late, at least not really late!.
The free apron tour now for these bird.
It looks like the scheduled CRJ900
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101006.jpg
OY-KFG or also known as "Maria Viking"
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101007.jpg
Boarding now. There are 12 examples in the actual SK fleet and this machine is in service with the airline since 07.07.2009.
Leg no. 6 only on type for me and good to start the day with a new registration
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101008.jpg
Cockpit crew is from Scandinavia. The captain with a relaxed and detailed welcome during boarding.
Dark blue fabric clean seaters here.
One young male together with one elderly female in the cabin, well biz friendly to say the least.
Check-in is done for 24A, the young male FA approached me after I´ve settled in.
"Please change you´re seat Sir". Not in a really nice style from my impression.
"I´ve checked in for 24A and this seems 24A, it´s not ok here?".
"No, we need that seat open due to security reasons".
Sure ok with 23A and B not taken, but these less friendly behaviour feels awkward to me.
The second to last row window now, two for me, recline is ok.
Note, no window in the last row F seat
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101009.jpg
It´s 07.10 am, slightly late, sunny 16 degrees here.
Just departed from 25 with a strange curve in northern direction. 1 hour 05 minutes for CPH
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101010.jpg
Legroom is sure ok here

The safety card
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101013.jpg

Leaving the clouds for sunny Denmark
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101015.jpg
The captain is on the mike again relaxed during approach with a nice bye-bye.
No route or flightlevel information.
Traffic down there
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101016.jpg
No clouds, no rain, so it seems thats not a bad day to fly around, at least till now.
Should we really need 3600 meters asphalt for touchdown at CPH´s runway 04L?. Not at all, the runway is only partial used today. 08.25 am, ten minutes ahead to schedule. 10 degrees only, but it´s sunny and that´s exactly what I need.
Bye now to OY-KFG, will I fly the CR9 again?. Sure, but hopefully on a new registration
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101017.jpg
Ok, I´am ready for the next flight, but there is another target in between.
One of these places, where also S. is in a really hard decision to leave his comfy chair somedays!.

Service SK 1454 operated by SAS Scandinavian Airlines

A self check is the way to go now.
The entrance
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101018.jpg

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101024.jpg
OLCI for the flight is done the day before, 25F, the last row window and surprise, the SK system shows my gold status.
Mr. S. fixed this leg by Exp.de, the fare 45.00 Euro´s only.
I should go to the gate now, B3 today
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101025.jpg
The 737-700 is on schedule. Changed a couple of days ahead to the flight for the 737-400. Sure the 734, don´t really know that SK operates these type actually.
Maybe an system error?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101026.jpg
The Malev 738 at the gate opposite
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101028.jpg
This is LN-BRE, the 734 for real.
In service with the SK group since 18.05.1990.
There are 3 planes only on type in the fleet.
Leg no. 14 for me on the 734 and the last flight is close to 200 legs ago. Warm welcomed, to say the least, also when I see that this is a new registration again
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101029.jpg
Cockpit crew is from Scandinavia, the captain with a short nice welcome after boarding is completed.
Very oldfashioned seaters, well used, but nevertheless comfy
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101030.jpg
We take the shorter runway 04R for departure, anyway 3300 meters asphalt is pretty enough for us. 10.20 am perfectly ontime, sunny all the time and 14 degrees.
1 hour for Norway.
The safety card
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101031.jpg
Cabin crew is three female FA´s. Two elder, one younger, all together nothing special, biz friendly to say the least.
Legroom is ok here, three seats for me, but no recline
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101032.jpg
Cabin view, more oldfashioned feeling. The load is 70%

Yes, that looks like Norway down there
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101038.jpg
19L or 2950 meters on an asphalt/concrete mix is ok for us now at OSL. 11.25 am, short ahead to schedule, 21 degrees and partly cloudy here in Norway.
S. confirmed by SMS immediatelly that Linie Aquavit is the perfect companion for him and compliments me with the less covered 734.

Service SK 215 operated by SAS Scandinavian Airlines
Scheduled: 14.35 // 15.20


The way from the plane on international arrivals leads you to the baggage area and finally out in the public. Well, good to catch some sunrays.
And what is parked accidentally close by?.
LN-BRE!.
Super nice weather, so why not spend the time in the sun?.
And why not have a chat with a nice young woman doing exactly the same like me in between two flights?.
Well, live is good, not every day but sometimes definitely!.
I should go for security now, some minutes there and back in the gate area.
This leg is fixed by Fly.de, cheaper this time than the other offers, 40.00 Euro´s only.
OLCI whenever possible, you know. There is a two seater on offer in the last row, sure my place to go.
What about a lounge?. Sure it is, but not in the domestic part of the terminal.

The asphalt runway 04 is short here, 2030 meters only, but also with these conditions enough for us. 3.45 pm, 25 minutes late, wet and 16 degrees, but thankfully not the announced thunderstorms by now.

Service SK 2889 operated by SAS Scandinavian Airlines
Scheduled: 16.30 // 17.25


Welcome to my new departure airport.
Let me tell you now, how S. booked that leg.
To my surprise Exp.de has the best offer this time, 45.00 Euro´s, also ok from my point of view.
OLCI, no question again for this flight.
It´s wet outside, no real need for me to leave the terminal.
Functional or it looks more like an industrial garage
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101064.jpg
Well, also the next flight is late
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101065.jpg
This terminal is compact to say the least, everything on one level.
The empty SK check-in counters
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101066.jpg
Pasta or security?
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101067.jpg
This is oldfashioned and the empty beer can´s doesn´t help for a better impression
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101068.jpg
Is there a lounge here?. A lounge, here, surely not!.
My plane is ready to go back to OSL
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101069.jpg
Spraying down the runway
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101070.jpg
Closely followed by the touchdown of these bird. According to the airport timetable and the type, it´s the scheduled CR9 to CPH
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101071.jpg
No, double checked, I don´t want to believe my eyes.
That´s exactly the same bird like on my STR-CPH flight in the morning
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101072.jpg
Oh no, I´am not amused.
This is leg no. 7 on the CR9 and the second now on this machine.
The small gate is packed with people.
It looks like lots of vacationeers going for a connection at CPH.
Boarding starts finally from gate 1. Well, there are not that many other gates around!. Me as one of the last pax, as usual.
A nice young female agent working the gate.
The boarding pass screen produced a red light.
"Sir, we have a new seat for you, 04C".
"An aisle is not what I usually prefer".
"Also when it is an upgrade for you?".
"Well, in this case!".
Rushing around the wet apron to the plane.
4.50 pm, 20 minutes late, 16 degrees and 50 minutes for CPH.
Departure from 04 like arrivals.
Cockpit crew is from Scandinavia, the pilot with a nice relaxed welcome during boarding.
A first view to the safety card
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101073.jpg
And from my seat upfront
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101074.jpg
The load is 100%.
Legroom is sure ok here, also the forward cabin is clean
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101075.jpg
Cabin crew are two female FA´s, both senior and really nice. A good change from the earlier legs.
So, we will see what SK has on offer today
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101076.jpg
Open the box for a view inside
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101077.jpg
The captain is on the mike again short prior to approach. No route or flightlevel details.
No more pictures with my elderly female seat neighbour.
Not a single view out of the window to notice, but she is for sure in a need for the window seat. Well, I prefer the window also in this upgrade case.
3300 meters 22L is the place to return to CPH, 5.40 pm, 15 minutes late, 23 degrees and partly cloudy.
Bye now, OY-KFG, hopefully for the last time today
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101079.jpg
Well, Mr. S. is the guy who knows in advance that the connection works, at least according to his SMS by now!.

A couple of SMS in and out along the day and so we´re ready to meet at the lounge entrance.
Sure ok for me to visit the lounge twice in one day!.

Upstairs to the quiet area again

This is the return leg from the early morning STR-CPH,

Service is BOB.
Dark blue fabric seats, clean cabin.
Legroom is ok here, seat 21F, the aisle is also taken and Robert is in 20F, not that we really planned it this way.
Good for some inflight talking.
The load is very close to 100%
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101093.jpg
The pilot is again on the mike during approach, a short cut and a straight in for us now. No route or flightlevel informations.
Touchdown at runway 25, 9.35 pm, ten minutes ahead to schedule, 20 degrees, cloudy but dry till now.
Bye now to the SK planes, but only for a couple of days
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/Norway1101/Norwegen1101095.jpg
It started to rain and Robert should walk to the hotel.
No way, we entered my waiting car and so he had the personal shuttle to the hotel entrance!.

Well, five legs done, everything worked out in the end. No complains with Mr. S. and the same plane twice today, this is definitely not his fault!.
Really good to meet Robert at CPH, very nice aviation and else talking and also the joint flight, something like this happens not every day.
Thanx again for the nice company.

So, time now to change my calendar from the first half of the year to the second part.
WAW is on schedule, four legs on not that well covered plane types and thanx to M./SPLTA touring around with the perfect local guide.

Ha det bra,
comments are really welcome.

From my impression it was not a real security thing, he only want to have more privacy around his rear cabin FA seat.

Nice! Love the photos...

During the flight did anyone sit in that seat? I've heard of FA's telling people in the last row all sorts of things "security" or "safety" or "Weight and balance" but then proceed to use the seat for crew rest since it is more comfortable than the jump seat.

So where was that bridge and what is it for? Seems like such a huge bridge for no reason!

My opinion is that SAS had problem with cabin crew attidude. About 6-8 years ago I often met an "who-are-you-I'm-so-much-better-than-you "atitude from the cabin crew. Nowadays that atitude is gone from the great majoity of cabin crew. Today I'm happy to fly with SAS because I know that I'll find professional and frendly crew.

Hello Markus,

very interesting read on this lazy Sunday morning. Thanks for sharing!

Congratulations on new departure airport!

It seems you had a great time flying around Scandinavia on SK. I think I should plan a similar trip, so I could finally score 736 and M80 series.

Looking forward to read your next TRs.

Best regards,

Hi Markus,

good to see another report from you. SK is just another LCC in terms of onboard product in these days, I have no desire to fly that airline again anytime soon. At least you got an upgrade, so you experienced some variety. And I guess it was a kind of compensation for getting the same registration again.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
No question, Linie, the Aquavit that shuttled above the equator is there and now he is more than ready to follow me again!

Hi Markus,

Yet another really nice story, really nice to follow your Scandinavian adventure. It seems SAS did a pretty good job - no bigger delays and friendly service. And well done fitting in that many flights in a day! Many nice surprises also; an A.net meet, an upgrade and the 734 - a nice variety for sure.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
LH´s system doesn´t want to show my status, nothing new with the status change after booking.

Hope you get this problem solved and your status properly shown next time.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
It looks like the scheduled CRJ900

Oh dear, why does everyone need to fly on the -900, makes me even more eager to catch my second attempt to get on the CRJ-900...

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Leg no. 6 only on type for me and good to start the day with a new registration

Even though scoring the same reg twice is frustrating it's still better than scoring no -900 at all!  
Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
S. confirmed by SMS immediatelly that Linie Aquavit is the perfect companion for him and compliments me with the less covered 734.

... so Mr. S. is a nice guy after all?  

Now waiting eagerly for the next story.

Hi Markus !

Thanks for a very nice report with nice pictures !

Very nice for you to get the 734 again; a type I haven't been for almort exactly 10 years (ARN-SVO on SU) and 410 flights ago for me.

Too bad you got the same CRJ-900 but at least you made the connection in KRS.

Seems like a great day trip !

Hi Markus,

Scandanavian scenery and an a.net meet, well, what more do you want?
The flight from KRS-CPH must have been a disappointment despite the upgrade, same aircraft, nice window, the meal didn't even make up for that.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
A view outside, no rain, no clouds,

That is what a long summer day in June should look like.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):

"I´ve checked in for 24A and this seems 24A, it´s not ok here?".

That was quite rude of him. Seeing as you selected that seat at check-in, he should have asked you nicely.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The bridge to, well, nowhere, sure we know

Looks so strange from the air.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Immediatelly when I switched on the cellphone I see a notice from S.: "Connection ok?".
Well, I better don´t answer right now and he should be going a bit nervous in his comfy armchair!.

Why don't you bring him with you next time, then he can see just how much fun such tight connections really are!!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
And from my seat upfront

No, I don't like that view  
Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Comfy chairs here, that looks like Mr. S. relax example

Looks great, get me in one of them and I'd miss my flight for sure!

Happy flying

Hi Markus,

nice report, another nice day of flying around. Even though the same airline 5 times in a row (even the same reg once) it seems there is a bit a lack of variety, but at least a new airport. And you experienced some real Norwegian weather.

Glad you made the connection despite the small delay and certainly nice to get an upgrade. What was the meal inside the box? It looks good, yet it seems a bit on the small side.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):

So how many passengers were on the STR-CPH flight, after all?

"Please change you´re seat Sir"

Well, that's bad. Reminds me of a LPA-HAV flight on a Cubana Il-62, where the crew cleared several rows of seats by ordering the passengers (who had assigned seats) away. No help in finding other seats was given.... fortunately, I found a window again.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):

Hi Markus

Great trip report there - shame about getting the same CRJ9 twice! The CRJ is another type I need to add to my list, but I'm not a huge fan of regional jets due to the fact that I'm over 6ft tall and it can be hard to stand up in them!

Lucky you catching the 737-400 - I wouldn't complain about that, not flown on a 737 classic for a few years now (last one was with BA to LGW).

A great trip report as always!

Hi Markus,

Very enjoyable to follow your latest travels up north. Scandinavia and SAS are very very popular among the Euro flyers here, I think their good pricing and route network plays in their advantage. Great to see you got upgraded, at least it's a little salvation for getting the same reg twice that day. Quite a lot of CR9's also today, haven't flown on them as yet, but I'd very much like to in the near future.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Sure ok with 23A and B not taken, but these less friendly behaviour feels awkward to me.

Hmm, that's quite a bit 'not SAS'...

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The SK lounge at CPH, also recommended by a couple of people as one of the best lounges around in Europe.

Well, that info certainly did not come from me  

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Leg no. 14 for me on the 734 and the last flight is close to 200 legs ago. Warm welcomed, to say the least, also when I see that this is a new registration again

  

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Cabin view, more oldfashioned feeling.

A great classic she is.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
This is the upcoming tight connection and my flight to KRS shows a delay

Hmm, 15 mins is not a big deal now, isn't it?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
That´s exactly the same bird like on my STR-CPH flight in the morning

Well, you'll be damned, definitely not good   

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
No way, we entered my waiting car and so he had the personal shuttle to the hotel entrance!

Some extra bonus points there for you Markus.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
WAW is on schedule, four legs on not that well covered plane types and thanx to M./SPLTA touring around with the perfect local guide.

Sounds very OK, looking out for that one!

shame about getting the same CRJ9 twice! The CRJ is another type I need to add to my list, but I'm not a huge fan of regional jets due to the fact that I'm over 6ft tall and it can be hard to stand up in them!

Good to know that you also going to catch the CR9.

Quoting planejamie (Reply 20):
Lucky you catching the 737-400 - I wouldn't complain about that, not flown on a 737 classic for a few years now (last one was with BA to LGW).

Sure the point here, warm welcomed to see the 734 at the gate.

Very enjoyable to follow your latest travels up north. Scandinavia and SAS are very very popular among the Euro flyers here, I think their good pricing and route network plays in their advantage. Great to see you got upgraded, at least it's a little salvation for getting the same reg twice that day. Quite a lot of CR9's also today, haven't flown on them as yet, but I'd very much like to in the near future.

Thank you and something more to come, you know.
Sure the case with especially the one-way offers.

Quoting sultanils (Reply 21):

Hmm, that's quite a bit 'not SAS'...

Definitely.

Quoting sultanils (Reply 21):
Well, that info certainly did not come from me

You know that guy from Finland told me something like this.

Quoting sultanils (Reply 21):

A great classic she is.

Sure the case.

Quoting sultanils (Reply 21):
Hmm, 15 mins is not a big deal now, isn't it?

With thunderstorms expected around KRS no need for more delay.

Quoting sultanils (Reply 21):
Well, you'll be damned, definitely not good

Exactly my opinion.

Quoting sultanils (Reply 21):

Some extra bonus points there for you Markus.

And for you, too.

Quoting sultanils (Reply 21):

Sounds very OK, looking out for that one!

Still on the production line.

Great report on SK again . I love reading these. Nice to get an upgrade also  

Its good to see so many decent SK reports lately.

Thank you and for sure a good number of A.netters joining the Scandinavian style of flying lately.

Hi Markus,

Good to see another report showcasing Scandinavia and their national airline SK. Their service seem's more LCCish than legacy carrier but at least you got a upgrade. The J meal doesn't look too bad considering the stage length.

Thanks for reporting & looking forward to your next adventure!

Hi Markus,

always a good read, looks like you had a good day's flying. And nice to meet another a.netter  

So, was the increased space / food worth not having a window on your upgrade?

Thanks

Not at all, if I had a chance to decide, no question, the window option anyway.

Hej Markus,

Good to see another report on your summer travels. Five flights on a row with SK (ok, two with SK NO, three with SK DK that's a bit different) is not really your style, though! Some nice pictures of the beautiful scenery and a joint a.net flight, that's a nice day out!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Boarding is on the paper for 06.40 am, my usual style today. Cell phone set for 04.00 am, on the road at 05.00 am and at the airport at 06.00 am. Pretty ontime and ready to go for the lounge or not?.

Somebody else asked it already, but how an earth do you manage to waste a whole hour between getting up and hitting the road? I'd definitely choose an additional half an hour of shuteye if I were you!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Good for some more breakfast today

Bread and water, undoubtedly.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
"Please change you´re seat Sir". Not in a really nice style from my impression.
"I´ve checked in for 24A and this seems 24A, it´s not ok here?".
"No, we need that seat open due to security reasons".

That sounds kinda rude, not very SAS style at all.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Bye now to OY-KFG, will I fly the CR9 again?. Sure, but hopefully on a new registration

Never say never.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The ground floor is the place for the silver members, the upper floor for the gold holders.

Nope, not really. No access with any silver card. *G gets you upstairs, a biz class ticket downstairs.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
My meal

Not water and bread, but a cookie and bread. You know they have some really nice stuff in the buffet?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Sure the 734, don´t really know that SK operates these type actually.

Still some leftovers in the SAS NO fleet.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
This is LN-BRE, the 734 for real.

A familiar one for me as well.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
An airport on the way

Hey, you should recognize that - you've been there! It's Landvetter.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The safety card

See, it is BOTH 737-600 and -700 like they told Eric.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The destination is right, Kristiansand Kjevik airport

A shame you didn't have time to leave the airport. I flew to KRS some years ago for a daytrip (it just happened to be my last flight with an SK Dash during the short period when they were reintroduced to the fleet) and the city was quite an okay place, in that charming "Small Town, Norway" style.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Pasta or security?

Pasta, of course!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
That´s exactly the same bird like on my STR-CPH flight in the morning

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Our nice A.net colleague Robert//parton87 decides to ride the next plane together with me southern side to STR.

Hah, that's funny having just been on a trip with him!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
This is LN-RNL, the single SK CR9 in the Norwegian register.

Interesting - I thought they all were OY-KF*.

Hola Markus!

Another great reading for this evening!

Great to see your Scandinavia trip went so well and smooth despite minor delays.

SK seems to be on the right track, I hope they abandon the BOB one of these days and start offering something to paying customers. I do not know how much a cookie and and a coffee add to the total spending of an airline but it would be nice that they did it...

I know it is not great to fly the same registration twice but nice to see she was following you.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
"Please change you´re seat Sir". Not in a really nice style from my impression.
"I´ve checked in for 24A and this seems 24A, it´s not ok here?".

Sure ok with 23A and B not taken, but these less friendly behaviour feels awkward to me.

He did not know he was talking to an a.netter, did he?
You should have given him airliners.net address and shown him some of your reports. We should all start flying SK and occupying all last rows  

Salut!

Hi Markus

Nice overview of your scandinavian trip. Makes me feel that I need to make my way up there pretty soon.
Did SK ever plan on installing PTV's (as seen on your CPH-OSL leg).

Hi Markus,

Since I noticed your report being posted, I was curious about your adventure. Mr. S. did a great job once again, though one connection was rather tight.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Not that much customers that early morning time

Great, isn’t it?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Reply 3):
From my impression it was not a real security thing, he only want to have more privacy around his rear cabin FA seat.

In that case, he could have been a lot nicer! Especially for an ambassador like you!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
This is LN-BRE, the 734 for real.
In service with the SK group since 18.05.1990.
There are 3 planes only on type in the fleet.

In that case, you were lucky to sample one of few SK’s 734 fleet.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Very oldfashioned seaters, well used, but nevertheless comfy

Well maintained too!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Pasta or security?

   How about both?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
"Sir, we have a new seat for you, 04C".
"An aisle is not what I usually prefer".
"Also when it is an upgrade for you?".
"Well, in this case!".

It reminds me of my own experience with LH last July. How could you possibly refuse an aisle seat after an upgrade?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
No more pictures with my elderly female seat neighbour.

I wish she could have taken it easy. She got the window seat by the way!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The nice female agent accepted Robert as my lounge guest today, so we´re free again to use all the offers.

The benefit of top tier membership. Always great to host your meeting with fellow A.netter this way!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Open the box for a view inside

Did you like it?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
OLCI, what a question, 21F, no more windows behind that seat available.

It looks like SK has different configurations on her CR9’s. The last row of your outbound leg was 24, while the inbound one happened to be 21.


I am sorry for my late reply. Nevertheless, you cheered me up with this excellent report after hard working day. Thank you so much for sharing.


Best wishes,
