I really miss them in Sofia:

It was really bad year for my home airport - we lost Malev, CSA and LH flight to DUS operated by my favorite plane -CRJ. And even new year will start will bad news - NIKI are ending their flights to SOF on 27.01.2013. So Austrian are one of the best airlines that still flies to Sofia.

Nice report eco...great that OS upgraded you.

Quick stop at lounge:

I'll be there in about a month...looks pretty busy. Is it very big?

Oh, how OS catering has changed! Check out my ECONOMY class meals on Lauda in 2006 to Yerevan. Both EVN and LED are blocked around 3 hours.

Thanks for sharing and congrats for the upgrade! The meal looks delicious. I had the chance to eat at the Austrian Airlines staff Canteen a few weeks ago, which is also catered by Do&Co and it was outstanding for canteen food.

How did you find the new terminal? I was really unimpressed. It looks sterile like a hospital, and it shows already a lot of signs of age, i.e. traces on the walls and the floors...

Nice 'mini-report' as you call it. Always nice to get an upgrade, especially on the longer flights. The meal looks good and I love the presentation with those triangle plates!

Hey Eco, nice to see another of your laconic TRs! It's great to see daytime photos of SOF. It seems like I'm there only at night!

A what a nice present it was!

Indeed! I'm surprised that other airlines don't always do something similar.

Interesting choice of name, don't you think?

Yeah it's been pretty bad. This combined with all the lost carriers at SKG has really limited my options when I want to head to my hometown.

Thanks for sharing!
