- -Gate A11 was festooned with purple and white balloons, a mini-stage, a DJ, photo booth with printer, and a table laid out with CLE earbuds and sleep masks, along with a festive WOW-themed cake (plus two large white cakes).
-There were a number of speeches, a cutting of a ribbon and some giveaways to passengers for answering trivia questions about WOW and Iceland.
-Inbound WW114 touched down right at 11:00 p.m., 30 minutes early, but departed about 1:15, 45 min. late. Not sure why the delay.
-The flight information displays were not working properly. WW113 was listed, but neither the origin nor baggage carousel, was listed. This caused a bit of confusion for arriving passengers who needed to claim bags (WW and FI will use carousel #3). Hope they fix this soon!
-Inbound load was 80 passengers (40%-not bad for the 1st inbound flight), outbound was 196 (98%). First flight was on TF-MOM, an A321, delivered to WOW in 2015.
-Incoming passengers were greeted outside of customs (after clearing customs and TSA re-screening) with a Cleveland goody bag.
-The very attractive flight crews from both flights met on A and posed for pics.
-As passengers exited the secure area, representatives from Destination Cleveland were at the bottom of the escalators in baggage claim cheering with welcome signs.
I have multiple pics, but have no idea if or how I can embed them here.
