The trip in one word:

INTERRUPTIONS



"The theme with this story is to spend a day in sunny England, yes and to catch something new for the visited airports map, well, we will see!."


A relaxed hello, dear readers,

no foreign language needed this time!.
It feels like just yesterday since I was back at the homebase from the Ukraine:

Ukraine Kiew UkraineInternationalAirlines SAS CR9 (by FLIEGER67 Dec 10 2013 in Trip Reports)

And this is the routing for today:

Thanx to as usual:

Well, is it late in the evening or early in the morning?.
Anyway, no time to lose!.

Service EZS 8430 operated by EasyJetSwitzerland
Scheduled: 06.50 // 07.20


What´s going on at the Tripreporter 2013 data?:

And also with the visited countries?:

Ok, these incorruptible machine named cellphone confirmed my first thoughts.
It´s early in the morning, very early in the morning.
02.30 am, but it´s never ever to early for a day in the air, isn´t it?.
Not that much traffic, lucky me and pretty early, too at the first station today.
The car should spend the day at F3, french side, open air, always a bit scary when you read about broken and damaged cars. See you in the very same conditions, hopefully!.
The screen looks like ok, nothing to notice about any disruptions.
A warm welcome for todays travel companion.
I´am moving on the development track, I´am faster!.
OLCI is done and the paper is printed at the homebase,
that´s the rule here.
It´s nowadays possible also for flights from the Swiss sector to go through the usually less used French security check, what is recommendable and works also perfect today.
Anything special on the apron?

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304003_zpsb616a0e3.jpg
No time to wait at passport check.
No lounge here on offer, at least today.
Booking is done via the Easy homepage directly, the fare for this leg is just 35.00 Euro´s

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304005_zps16133050.jpg
Gate 22 it is today.
And it feels good to see the sun coming up behind the plane
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304008_zps59c71080.jpg
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304009_zps05ca8bde.jpg
6.45 am, short ahead to schedule, 1.00 hour only by "Topswiss". Leaving the "EuroAirport
Basel–Mulhouse–Freiburg" from the 3900 meters runway "One-Five".
14 degrees and clear sky, not bad, isn´t it?.
Yeah, we are in a good mood!.
So we have HB-JYC to go, one of these very few machines without an individual name!. It´s an A319 like on schedule.
Leg no. 94 on type and new to the log.
With EZY and EZS since 20.07.2011. 15 planes on type are in the fleet and there are no stories to show.
Up for the clear sky and that feels really good.
Some cabin details

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304011_zps96b5c816.jpg
FA´s are all together ok, but not yet something special.
Three women, one elder french, one younger german, one also younger eastern European and one younger male.
Service is BOB.
25F, the mixed orange grey fabric seats are clean so far.
The legroom is low, nothing else expected and the safety card
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304012_zps929b3564.jpg
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304013_zps4f37d621.jpg
Cockpit crew sounds eastern European to me. The "Pilot" with a nice welcome after boarding. All cabin crew is introduced by name. He is once again to hear nice inflight.
No route or flightlevel info.
The load is very close to 100% as it usually is with Easy and there are also some biz people to see.
Traveller ok and no cloud to notice at all
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304014_zps2de8534f.jpg
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304015_zpsc66dc113.jpg
The flight is much too fast over. Really?. Really, with these nice companion and the english island coming in sight.
Flat lands close to "Gatwick, your London airport".
Touchdown at the 3316 meters "Zero-Eight-Right". 7.10 am,
ten minutes ahead to schedule.
Light fog, 11 degrees and what about clouds?. No way, never ever in England!

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304018_zpsac795aa3.jpg
Interesting planes on the apron and up for the bridge,
a first for me

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304020_zps4a0dd201.jpg
The electronic passport check works swiftly, close to no time to wait.
Now that´s a good idea
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304021_zpsf422ea87.jpg
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304022_zps6b274707.jpg
The next flight is BE802, departure at 09.05 am for Newquay.
Sounds perfectly good with these nice weather conditions to spend a day around the long cornish beaches. Sun, wind, nice companion, I had already talked about?. Maybe a cup of tea or two, scones in the afternoon, oh yes!.
We are prepared for a delay on the EZY service what happens from time to time but thankfully not today.
Check-In is also done online, boarding papers printed.
But we decided to give the SSK´s a try, just to check for better seats.
Well, there is no real need to check for better seats on a cancelled flight, isn´t it?.
That´s exactly what the SSK screen shows us now.
And that´s also exactly not what we are prepared for.
But it´s true.
A view for the screen confirmed, not the best day for BE, so it looks like.
The inbound from Guernsey cancelled. No notice at all for the inbound from Newquay, our plane, after the scheduled arrival time
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304023_zps59fb7d3d.jpg
Self service it is now. Are there any other flights to Newquay today ex LGW?. Not at all.
Further for the BE desk, where the nevertheless nice elder agent apologized for several times.
The plane goes tech on yesterday´s evening service to Newquay and is still grounded there.
To follow the details here:
http://avherald.com/h?article=467ee1f9&opt=0
There is no other plane available.
A voucher is handed, what is swiftly exchanged at the airport shop around the corner for water, chips and sandwich, twice
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304024_zps45909d34.jpg
Well, we make the best of it, isn´t it?. The weather is nice and we are heading for the beach.
Ok, not the Newquay beach, but there is another interesting beach not that far away.
Well, the second preference after the plane is the train.
First Capital Connect fills the gap!

Cockpit crew is from the UK. The "Skipper" with a nice welcome after the boarding completed message and once again short inflight.
No route info, flightlevel is 35000 feet.
Lucky us, the flight is not yet full and the cabin crew is in a good mood. Especially the young guy in the rear is really chatty. Well, we leave a couple of questions open!.
Two female FA´s are also here, both ok, one young, one younger.
And another middle aged male.
Service is BOB again

Bye now to EZY
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/GB1101/GB1304114_zps50fd5943.jpg
Any disruptions?. No way!.
And also bye now to my nice travel companion, but not before another cup of tea at the airport restaurant.
Thanx again H., for sure a nice and interesting day together in the air and around.
The car is still asleep, but is ready from one second to the other for the free shuttle and also the drive through the black forest and the homebase!.

Here are the conclusions:

1.)Easyjet Switzerland BSL-LGW: An relaxed early morning shift.
2./3.)The no go thanx to BE!.
4.)Easyjet LGW-BSL: Three seats for us and a chatty crew, well done.

And now?.
Enough flying for the time being?.
No way!.
With this sunny day in England in mind it seems I should go again soon:

Hello Markus,

It was sure a long time ago since you last flew ‘orange’, and on top of that in excellent company. I have quite a softspot for easyJ, good fares and ontiime flight until now for me, I’m a happy customer. Let’s quickly forget about that cancelled Flybe trip, sadly these things are part of the deal, right?

A warm welcome for todays travel companion.

OLCI is done and the paper is printed at the homebase,
that´s the rule here.

You know that easyJet has an excellent app for booking etc. No more papers anymore! But perhaps you store those as well in your personal aviation museum

Hi Markus,

What a great review of a really super day out. As the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining. Despite the cancellation with Flybe we made the best of it and it just goes to prove that sometimes you don’t need a new departure airport, airline or aircraft to have a successful trip. You took so many nice photos in Brighton, I really enjoyed looking at them on this dull, foggy winter's day.

Thank you and no difficulties noticed at all!

The flight is much too fast over. Really?. Really, with these nice companion and the english island coming in sight.

Yes, I agree, definitely over much too fast.

But we decided to give the SSK´s a try, just to check for better seats.
Well, there is no real need to check for better seats on a cancelled flight, isn´t it?.
That´s exactly what the SSK screen shows us now.
And that´s also exactly not what we are prepared for.

Well, life is full of surprises, certainly not what we were expecting, but we didn’t let it spoil the day.

AFAIK the flight was later canceled, so did you checked your EU rights for cancellations? Or at least full refund of the ticket?

Hi Markus,

interesting report, even though it were just two easy flights. Sorry to hear about the flybe problems, but things like that can happen. At least you managed to make the best out the situation with a visit to Brighton. Looks like a very interesting city, with the pier, the seafront and that Indian palace.

Hello FLIEGER67

Oh no, another one of these early, very early starts!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
"Topswiss"

I wasn't aware EasyJet Switzerland still uses "Topswiss" as callsign, same as it was when this company was still called TEA Switzerland.

Sorry that NQY didn't work out this time, but going to Brighton was a good replacement. And what a glorious day you had, weather and companion-wise.

Best regards, LXM83

Hello Markus,

It's Sunday morning, time read your report.
It's a nice one again, but shame you missed Newquay! Although Brighton seemed like a very nice alternative. Did BE refund the flights? Easyjet looks pretty good as always, I have to say probably one of the best LCC's in Europe - and usually good and chatty crews like on your return flight.
Thanks for sharing!

Great report and a place Im very familiar with. We used to take the train down from London when I was a kid. Love it and want to go back sometime. Your pictures really brought back nice memories. !  

As for EZY I still have not flown them and want to sometime.

Hi Markus !

Another great report from you!

It looks like you are finally clearing a big backlog.

Flights look okay but nothing special.

Brighton looks interesting particulry the Indian looking building.

Thanks again for another report.

Hi there Markus, yet another interesting read. Too bad about Flybe messing up your plans (seems as though they're not getting a very good reputation around here lately), but seems as though you had a great day out in Brighton instead - and you really can't go wrong there. One of my favorite places to visit when the sun is out, that's for sure!

EZY look fine. In fact I'd choose them over Flybe any day now after experiencing both in the last few months.

It's been a while since I have flown EZY, guess it's time to try them out again.
