Long Weekend In Cold Edinburgh

Thu Dec 20, 2007 9:50 pm

Long Weekend in EDI with EasyJet.

It was about time to do another trip, and with a good friend of mine and his wife living in Edinburgh I thought it would be nice to visit them. In October in went searching for a good price to fly to EDI ex AMS. The options for me were LH ( non-rev ) via FRA, KL ( non-rev ) direct or U2 direct. It turned out that U2 was the cheapest option after KL and LH. So I booked online with U2 for a Saturday departure and a Tuesday return. With € 80.38 all-in a good price for these 2 flights.
So here we go then, enjoy the read and the pictures, any comments are highly appreciated.

After waking up on Saturday morning and checking the site of the Dutch Railroad Company I discovered that I could expect some delays due to a technical failure around Utrecht.
Therefore I decided to go a couple of hours earlier to the airport and do some spotting if I had time left. One of my friends drove me to the train and an hour later, without any delay I stood on Schiphol airport. Now I had 3 hours to kill before the check-in desk would open for my flight to EDI. I decided to go outside and do some spotting on the terrace.

Flight : EZY 6922
Stretch : AMS-EDI
Date : 15dec2007
Aircraft : Airbus A319-111 ( cn 2812 )
Registration : G-EZAW
4th on the 319, and the 1st on this machine.
Also my 1st flight with EasyJet.


http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t133/Wieringer/Edinburgh2007035.jpg

Right after the check-in desk opened I queued up and was quickly called to the desk, where my baggage was checked in without any trouble. Sequence number 38 / Boarding group B. Through the passport control was very easy and quickly done, took less than 1 minute. No queues at all today!
With still plenty of time I decided to grab a cup of coffee at one of the new opened Starbucks at AMS. Great to see Starbucks opening some shops in The Netherlands, reminds me of my NY trip back in 2003.
Security was also a breeze as I was the only passenger at that time heading for the H-pier at AMS. After security I knew why I was the only one at that time! After security there is absolutely nothing, except for gates. Not even Toilets!
Boarding of G-EZED to BRS was just finished and she was the only bird at the H-pier at that time.
After push-back she departed just before the CO 764 from the G-pier pushed back ready for her delayed flight back to EWR.

http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t133/Wieringer/Edinburgh2007048.jpg

Quickly after that a very clean U2 A319 turned up and parked at gate H1.
Boarding was started shortly after arrival and I took my place via de backdoor on seat 18A just after the wing and at the right side of the machine to see sunset later during the flight.
The aircraft was in very good shape, they grey and orange interiors looked in perfect condition. On the other hand, the comfort of the seat was really terrible, no seat recline and above all, no place to put my legs. The cockpit crew seemed English and the 3 female and 1 male flight-attendants were British as well, I think one was Scottish or Irish though.

http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t133/Wieringer/Edinburgh2007054.jpg

It was a great decision to have a lot of sunlight in the first half of the flight. About halfway the sunset was really breathtaking as you can see in the pictures. I decided to order a cup of coffee which was of great taste! Better coffee I did not get yet on an aircraft! Soon after that we started our descent into EDI. We made our final approach for rwy 24 and made a very smooth landing. Braking was without using the thrust-reversers and we exited the rwy at the very end of it. We taxied to the stand and we deboarded the Airbus via the stairs. Passport control again was a breeze in no time I was back in Scotland for the first time in 10 years! What a great feeling it was. My friends picked me up and with the Airport shuttle bus, we left for their place.

The next couple of days we did a lot of walking in both the city and the country side.
Hopefully the pictures will give you an impression of the beautiful city and nice country side.
I can't forget to mention that it was freezing cold in EDI during my stay!
Unfortunately we had no time to go up north and see the highlands, but I will return!

After a couple of days it was again time to leave and getting back to the normal daily routine.
My friend had to travel to BRU for a simulator session for BA, as he is F/O with BA Cityline and flying around in his Mini-Jumbo  Smile the Avro RJ100.

Flight : EZY 6923
Stretch : EDI-AMS
Date : 18dec2007
Aircraft : Airbus A319-111 ( cn 3061 )
Registration : G-EZBN
5th on the 319, and the 1st on this machine.


Check in was a breeze, and security check a bit tighter, but also no problem. Only the guy in front of me, had a minor issue and had to leave his bottle of 18Year old Single Malt Whisky behind, which he forgot to pack in his checked luggage. Our gate was 1D, which is a finger gate and boarding soon started. I found, together with plenty of other passengers the two gate agents very rude.
With sequence number 61 / boarding group B, it was soon my turn to board trough the finger on board the Airbus 319. This time I found a nice spot in seat 11A which was an emergency exit seat. The seat was again not very comfortable, but at least I had decent legroom  Smile

http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t133/Wieringer/Edinburgh2007335.jpg

It also mend that I had to stack my camera bag in the overhead cabin during take off, so no pictures of the take off this time. Take off from rwy 06 was very smooth. During the flight it was fine to grab it and make some shots of the cabin and the view through the window. During the flight I bought another coffee, which again was of great taste! Cabin crew, with 4 female attendants was very professional and quick. The cockpit crew seemed British again and gave a heads up somewhere mid-flight.

http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t133/Wieringer/Edinburgh2007344.jpg

Soon we started our descent into AMS. As it was already dark we could not see to good how our approach path was. But when leveling around 2000ft I could figure out we were about to land on rwy 06. The touchdown was very soft, one of the best I experienced so far. Again no reversers used, and we exited the runway at about 2/3 of the total runway length. After a small taxi to the H-pier it was time to leave the Airbus via de stairs, and we walked into the Terminal again. Passport control was a breeze, as there was only one person in queue in front of me, which was very comfortable. My GF picked me up, and together we traveled back home.

Nice report and some nice photos of "Auld Reekie" (apologies to any Scottish readers if I spelt that wrong!). Edinburgh truly is a great city, although maybe I'm a little biased as I went there for the first time myself in November to visit someone particularly special!!

It was nice to see Winter Wonderland in a state of readiness for the festive season...when I was there in November they were still putting it together, and were still putting the cars on the big wheel!

Glad you enjoyed your U2 experience...IMHO they are the best LCC out there. I also flew with them to EDI but from LGW, and have to say that they were great. On the return flight EDI-LGW, the chief F/A actually stopped the safety announcement half way through because a couple of people in about row 9 were talking during the demo! She walked to their row and asked them for their attention for a couple of minutes, stating the importance of the announcement, before returning to the front of the plane to continue her spiel!!

Gimme easyJet over Ryanair any day!!

Thanks for taking the time to write your report, and for the excellent photos.

Cheers.

Andy.

The photos were truly captivating!!! The winter scene in the countryside was much more fascinating than the airplane photos . . .just surreal! The cold must have made the weekend feel even longer, no?
Glad you had a great time in Edinburgh . . . I cannot remember too much because I was only 4 years old when I was in Edinburgh. Haven't been there since. . . .

Easyjet looks quite nice, but your seat pitch looked a bit cramped. Looking forward to more photos and report from you when you travel again. The nature photos - - - keep those coming! You have quite the knack for it!!!

Everybody . . . MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hi Joost!

thanks for this well written report! Great pics too, especially the ones from Scotlands countryside. Some pretty nice scenes there it seems.

Quoting DALCE (Thread starter):
The aircraft was in very good shape, they grey and orange interiors looked in perfect condition. On the other hand, the comfort of the seat was really terrible, no seat recline and above all, no place to put my legs.

Yeah, I also have the impression that U2 maintains their fleet perfectly, also the cabin. I think U2 have the cleanest/best cabin of most European loco's. They are far better then FR and WW at least! About the legroom,... did you have longer legs then me ?  Wink I never have problems on U2 aircraft with the pitch. HV is really worse for me! Can you compare both too?

Quoting DALCE (Thread starter):
This time I found a nice spot in seat 11A which was an emergency exit seat.

Lucky you, being in boarding group B!

Quoting DALCE (Thread starter):
With € 80.38 all-in a good price for these 2 flights.

Yeah, I know even non-rev can't beat these prices nowaydays. Even mainline carriers (LH, OS, SK, LX) offer great fares within Europe which are mainly cheaper then non-rev for us, and you will be confirmed on board, and can sometimes even collect points for your loyalty program!

My report will follow this week. Still have to start writing  Smile

Groeten en een prettig kerstfeest!

And the flight was 95% full, also the middle seat remained empty, which was nice!

Very true, and no afterwards tax charges. I will focus more on confirmed flights. The price difference is so small nowadays.

Hello, Joost,

while I know about your "German Weihnachtsmarkt" ah, sorry EDI trip, I´ve thought there was something lost till now.
But finally you´ve posted it!.
A real interesting story and good pix.
Unbelievable that LoCo nowadays beats non-rev.

Quoting DALCE (Thread starter):

Oh, yes, I remember that from my last AMS visit, not the real good deal.

So, it seems you had good experiences with EZY, myself too till now.

Hi Joost, you mention that at AMS once through security there were no toilets or anything on H pier? I visited AMS for a full days spotting in may & if I remember correctly all the piers D through to H are all linked & you can walk freely between them as I did for my 9 hours spotting there!  Smile The only thing that I don't like about airside spotting at AMS are those bloody automatic blinds that come down over the windows on the piers giving you a tiny space to see through & get the reg's, they even come down when it's cloudy outside!!  mad   hissyfit 
Great TR, those photo's taken on route AMS-EDI with the sun & cloud's are fantastic!

Excellent TR and photos, thanks!
I spent a few hours on the terrace last year in AMS, and thoroughly enjoyed it! I actually worked at SPL for Finnair in th early 70s. The airport has changed so much, I really had trouble trying to figure out where our offices and counters were located back at that time. I really have fond memories of SPL at that time. We had Super Caravelles and DC8-62 Combis flying through AMS at that time. The odd DC9, and one time a Karair DC8 when there was a strike on in Finland. Those were wonderful times!

It's a true pity, but it is the extra extra tax we have to pay on top of the normal taxes when purchasing non-rev tickets what makes it so expensive ( relatively )

It has been long since the last Caravelle visited AMS, once in a while we can see an odd DC8 freighter, but that is rare too nowadays. I think Silverback Cargo was the last operator calling at AMS with a DC8F

Nice set of pix, especially the NW planes at AMS

It seems that NW is still expanding and expanding. Next year we wil have the complete NW longhaul package at AMS.
757W, 332, 333 and 744. I'm looking forward to them back at AMS.

Nice pix too of Edinburgh, a v nice city which I visit often though only for work.

Too bad it is only for work, It is a very nice city. But I'm sure there are more great cities in the UK to visit.
