The trip in one word:

UNDERRATED



"The theme around this story is to fly a new airline to a new place and maybe also just a little bit sun around?"

Service Austrian OS 178 operated by Tyrolean Airways Tiroler Luftfahrt
Scheduled: 10.35 // 11.55


Here we see the Tripreporter 2013´s final edition:

And what about 2014?:

Well, there is the open STR-VIE leg on an Austrian fixed ticket IST-VIE-STR-VIE. The fare this way with this leg is 80.00 Euro´s.
And what should we do now with this open portion?.
What about checking VIE departures for something interesting, not that well covered, new to the visited countries map and just a little bit more?.
Ok, ok, lucky me, there is something available what suits perfectly.
Late morning departures makes up for a relaxed wake up call!. 06.00 am it is when the cell phone pokes me.
The usual biz traffic on the motorway, but the car makes the best of it and secured a parking spot at P0 as usual.
See you tomorrow, hopefully!.
For the terminal right now. OLCI works well, but there is the necessary paper to collect. Here is a view to the screen and later for the apron.
No one in front at security, yes, that´s what I like and a swift detour for the lounge.
SunExpress running just a little late for Antalya but OS looks like ok

This is "Innsbruck", the whole time since 31.05.1995 in service with the Austrian group, beside 8 other examples.
It is a Fokker 70, registered OE-LFG, new to the log and leg no. 17 on type.

Just a surprise to see the big KLM cargo one at the other side of the apron.
Certainly not the everyday visitor here

10.30 am is short ahead to schedule, 1.00 hours by "Tyrolean" ex runway "Two-Five". Bye now to the
"Flughafen Stuttgart".
12 degrees and just a few clouds around.
The load is 70%, a good number of biz travellers on the way.
Cockpit crew is from Austria, the "Pilot" with a nice welcome during taxi and once again inflight in a nice style.
No route or flightlevel info.
Me and the special green seats. Well, that´s Austrian style isn´t it?

Cabin crew is two women, one elder, slim, red hair, nice and one younger, not slim to say the least with an robotic attitude.
Dubai, ok, if you send me this way!

Service airberlin AB 5506 operated by Royal Jordanian
Scheduled: 14.50 // 20.20


Something new on the visit countries map?:


VISITED COUNTRIES auf einer größeren Karte anzeigen

There is a new map to show with all the plane types:


PLANE TYPES RECORDED auf einer größeren Karte anzeigen

And also all the checked airlines, Royal Jordanian is counted with no. 173 here:


AIRLINES CHECKED auf einer größeren Karte anzeigen

Just a couple of meters to walk now for a view to the screen.
There is no OLCI available. Ok, nothing else expected with these kind of reservation managed by Opodo.de.
Thumbs up to One World.
RJ quotes an el cheapo 1200.00 Euro´s on it´s website for the upcoming two legs.
But well, when you click the very same routing and AB flightnumbers it calms down to 125.00 Euro´s for this leg.
And interesting, too, when you click the second leg to LHR operated by BA on AB flightnumbers it´s further down to less than 100.00 Euro´s. Not bad, isn´t it?.
Well, the counter isn´t open and a couple of people waiting. An elder, Jordanian, so it looks like, biz style traveller joined, too.
We had a nice chat and he is not that really proud about his home carrier. Lot´s of delays and the usual things like this.
Well, there is someone else here not that really proud about the latest decisions with the home airline, but that´s another story!.
More people coming in. A group of elder, Jordanian maybe, at least Arabian, travellers and well senior´s don´t need to wait, isn´t it?.
They jump the queue, ok, there is no real queue here, feeling like in their twenties, always a surprise how fast they are when they like to be, as soon as a nice elder woman opened the counter.
Well, funny to follow the comments from the other travellers.
Just a couple of minutes thereafter it´s my turn, the elder woman is really nice and certainly surprised when the machine printed not one boarding pass only. No, there are two and this is no connecting flight, no this is the return for tomorrow. She checked it en detail, it´s true, but there is no seat change possible, ok in the end.
And onwards for passport check without a minute to wait.
Security is at the gate, no one else beside me and also swiftly fixed.
Gate D21 by the way and no lounge used here

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301028_zpsc1052a26.jpg
Yes, that fit´s. A warm welcome to the crown, Royal Jordanian, the homecarrier of the "al-Mamlakah al-Urdunīyah al-Hāshimīyah", "المملكة الأردنية الهاشمية" or also the "Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan" and a first for me

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301030_zps7f3fa609.jpg

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301032_zpsf2000201.jpg
No complaints regarding the type, an A319, this is exactly what the schedule told me, "Ma an", registered as JY-AYM.
Leg no. 98 on type and new to the log.
Since 29.10.2008 with the crown, four planes on type are in the fleet and there are no stories reported

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301034_zps1472d8e9.jpg
Not a real surprise to follow now after the check-in talk with the nice lady, there are just a few pax only here

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301037_zps76dd2c9e.jpg
3.00 pm, ten minutes late by "Jordanian", leaving the "Flughafen Wien-Schwechat" again for 3.15 hours in the air. It´s partly cloudy at 18 degrees and just departed from the 3500 meters runway "Two-Nine"

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301039_zps90d5a47c.jpg
Cockpit crew is from Jordan, there are two "نقيب", the guy´s with the four stripes today in the front office and the one at the left hand side with a nice and detailed welcome on the ground.
The routing is Timisoara, Veliko Tarnovo, Bursa, Konya, Alanya, Larnaca, Haifa, it seems the very first time in Israeli airspace for me, at 35000 and later 37000 feet.
20A and three for me by the way.
Grey and red mixed fabric seats, the legroom is ok and it´s clean here so far.
The modern style cabin fitted with inseat screens

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301041_zps6cb76961.jpg
Cabin crew is one elder, one younger nice male FA and three women, all middle aged.
One large, not that slim, brown hair, eastern style,
one large, slim black hair, good looking to say the least with that red uniform
and another not that large, black hair, really nice.
The load is not more than 40%, a large travel group from Slovakia, some arabian people and the few others like me.
It feels good to be here

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301053_zps4ecfb692.jpg
Followed by the 3660 meters runway "Two-Six-Left" and arrival at Amman´s "Queen Alia International Airport,‏مطار الملكة علياء الدولي‎, Maār al-Malika Alyāad-Duwalī" at 8.20 pm, what is perfectly ontime. 20 degrees and clear sky, that is completely as preordered!.
Where there is, lucky me, no other flight at the same time and therefore no queue at all to see at the official desks and offices.
Cashing some Jordanian Dinars, not to talk about a monopoly, at the single exchange counter.
For the next counter where there is a nice guy left hand side to cash 20.00 Dinar´s back, now that was a short visit to my pocket, write a paper, sticks something in my passport and the relaxed guy right hand side stamped it.
Welcome to the "Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan", yes, I like this name and also the big passport stamp, after some minutes only, perfect.
And once again, I´am faster than the pre-ordered hotel driver. He is really surprised when he reached the arrivals hall and I´am waiting. It´s a long nightly way now on the private car from the airport to the city and the refugee camps along the motorway are good to notice.
Ok, at the Crystal Hotel, where there is a suite, well, as pre-ordered, waiting for me
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301057_zpsb8739690.jpg

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301055_zpsb4f197be.jpg
Crystal Hotel is for sure an ok place to stay the night located in Al Rabiah with lots of shops and restaurants around. And there is also an arabic bakery, lovely

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301059_zps00cdb886.jpg
And it seems also, that Amann is not the place to walk for longer. Every meter or two a cab stopped and like to drive me for somewhere else, pushy to say the least. Believe me,
originally I´ve planned to take one but no, not this way.
For you´re gas needs and not that this one looks like in any case retro!

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301063_zps45b90743.jpg
Back for the hotel to call it a, well, short travel night
till breakfast the next morning

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301067_zps1ca44704.jpg
That´s good for me early in the morning
and it´s also good to know that there is another car prepared with some spare time to show me around on the way for the airport

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/L1101/JOR1301069_zpsf18076c3.jpg

Along the with UNHCR tarpaulins covered interim campsites, tough to see it en detail for real.

The previous 200 places:

Now we are at Amman´s "Queen Alia International Airport,‏مطار الملكة علياء الدولي‎, Maār al-Malika Alyāad-Duwalī", for sure an interesting and modern style place

This is the second part on the aforementioned Opodo.de confirmation, the fare is 125.00 Euro´s.
A swift visit to the counter, staffed by a really nice young woman confirmed the behind the screen information managed by the nice elder lady in Vienna.
She even blocked the two seats beside me, really well done and the load is better than yesterday but far from full again.
My boarding pass on hand, no bag to check-in, good for a couple more pictures right now

not far from top of the screen what means I should go now, isn´t it?

For the gate and no time to use a lounge.
I´ve talked to a good number of nice people here in Jordan. Even the young guy cleaning the restroom tells me when I´am in for a short visit that Frankfurt is on the last call, prepares me the paper to dry my hands and doesn´t want to accept my last remaining Dinar coins. Ok, we found a way!.
Touring the apron and ready for boarding this way soon thereafter

Now that´s a surprise, this is a french registered plane,
F-OHGX, "Madaba" is the A320 like on schedule.
Leg no. 106 on type and new to the log.
The oldest, 17.11.2006, from 6 planes on type and the only one not registered in Jordan. And by now, since 13.12.2013 it is re-registered the right way!.
There are no stories to show with the plane

24 degrees and just a few clouds around now.
Cockpit crew is from Jordan, the "نقيب" or also the captain with a nice and detailed welcome on the ground.
The routing is Haifa, Paphos, Rhodos, Samos, Kavala, Sofia, Belgrade, Linz at 36000 and later 38000 feet.

There is also one younger ok male FA on duty.

And well, more chat means less pictures, but it´s anyway cloudy when we reached the European mainland.
4000 meters and runway "Two-Five-Left" welcomed me back to Germany and also the "Flughafen Frankfurt am Main". It´s 12.40 am, 15 minutes ahead to schedule at 14 degrees and the sky is cloudy.
Just a minute or two at immigration, good with a train to catch soon what works well in the end.
On the ICE and further on the final part by the local S-Bahn train for the airport, where the car is eagerly waiting for the drive back home.
With me and just a couple of pictures, you know!.

Conclusions, sure!:
1.)Tyrolean STR-VIE: A relaxed start for the day.
2.)Royal Jordanian VIE-AMM: A really nice welcome to the
"Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan".
3.)Royal Jordanian: A comfy experience by the king´s airline.

And now?. Believe me, this question is written by itself here during the final part of the story!.
Where am I?:

Hey Markus,

another interesting story here, well done. Nice idea to do such a short trip to Jordan, for sure a great experience. Just a shame that you didn't have more time to explore. And I have to agree with you, the livery of Royal Jordanian is truly beautiful, I really like the colors, looks very elegant. And service wise they seem to be pretty good as well.

Markus.

Another interesting report with a nice mix of destination / Airline.

AMM new terminal also looks pretty nice.

RJ looks like a sweet carrier, they also send their little A319s to BCN.

Shame you didn´t have enough time to explore more of Amman, I would have loved to see more city pictures. As for the refugee camps, I am sure seeing it in person makes a bigger impression than watching it on TV.

Looking forward to the KU report hehe.

Markus,

For sure a nice report here and good to see you travelling on the King’s airline, so to speak. Besides the seemingly frequent cancellations, delays,... the actual service provided by RJ looks really good.

Quote:
The theme around this story is to fly a new airline to a new place and maybe also just a little bit sun around?

As usual: you can count me in!

Quote:
Dubai, ok, if you send me this way!

Sure, in 2 weeks time and not ‘going’ but ‘returning’  

Quote:
The modern style cabin fitted with inseat screens

   Looks surprisingly nice I must say.

Quote:
and the huge IFE box

   And it looks even larger in such a small aircraft  

Quote:

Is that an A342  Wow! I guess they might be one of the few carriers still operating the type, no?

Hi Markus,

Good to read your latest report, November looks like it was an exotic month! RJ impresses, those meals look nice and you obviously had two pleasant flights.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
This story is dedicated to all the refugees who have made it from Syria to Jordan and also the Jordan people to live with it

Kind words.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Just a surprise to see the big KLM cargo one at the other side of the apron.
Certainly not the everyday visitor here

How unusual, nice catch.

Under the wing, you know. Tough job here, but it works

Mind your head!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Reply 1):
Thumbs up to One World.
RJ quotes an el cheapo 1200.00 Euro´s on it´s website for the upcoming two legs.
But well, when you click the very same routing and AB flightnumbers it calms down to 125.00 Euro´s for this leg.
And interesting, too, when you click the second leg to LHR operated by BA on AB flightnumbers it´s further down to less than 100.00 Euro´s. Not bad, isn´t it?.

Amazing what bargains can be found if you have the time & inclination.

Even the young guy cleaning the restroom tells me when I´am in for a short visit that Frankfurt is on the last call, prepares me the paper to dry my hands and doesn´t want to accept my last remaining Dinar coins. Ok, we found a way!.

Imagine that happening here in Europe....

Happy flying

RJ looks very impressive for Y on a narrow body aircraft and Amman looks interesting.

Looking forward to your next report!

Great report. I had great flights on RJ and always love to read about them. Nice edition of Royal Wings magazine for the 50th Anniversary. Did you take the copy with you ?

Nice to see the new Terminal also. It took a long time !

Thanks for the report.

Hey,

Great report. Royal Jordanian is a great airline in my opinion, the IFE on narrow planes isn't common on nowdays flights. Yet, from Israel to Europe or north America via AMM RJ's fares are pretty high.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Leaving Israel not far from Haifa

Actually, you were right over Tel Aviv. You can clearly see Herzelia airfield in the photo. If you sat to the left, you could have seen Tel Aviv, Ben Gurion airport and my home  

Thx for the report, Jonathan
every day is a good day to fly

Thanks for the trip report.

Just a minor correction... As mentioned earlier, you were actually over northern Tel Aviv looking north, rather than Haifa. In fact, Haifa is so far out from that point it's not even visible in the picture.

I suspect RJ uses Haifa rather than Tel Aviv as a marker for "political" reasons. The route you were taking (over northern Tel Aviv) is the normal one RJ uses en route from Amman.

Thanks for the trip report.

Thank you.

Just a minor correction... As mentioned earlier, you were actually over northern Tel Aviv looking north, rather than Haifa. In fact, Haifa is so far out from that point it's not even visible in the picture.

I suspect RJ uses Haifa rather than Tel Aviv as a marker for "political" reasons. The route you were taking (over northern Tel Aviv) is the normal one RJ uses en route from Amman.

Good to see this once more confirmed. Checked the books again and noted really Haifa as mentioned by the pilot, so it seems the point with the "political reasons".

Thanks Markus for this great report.

Good pictures of the new terminal in Amman, and I read that it will be expanded.

On your pictures it seems that the jetbridges are not used that often, or maybe there are not that many available until the whole new terminal is finished.

I enjoyed reading this report, the cabin of the RJ planes looks nice with the personal screens!

Thank you and indeed, I was positive surprised by AMM and it´s offers, also with RJ.

Hi Markus,

Very interesting report you made here on a country and airline we don't see much of, well done!  
Looks like you had two comfortable flights on RJ, the interior and food looks good. Definitely agree with you that the livery looks pretty nice!

Just a surprise to see the big KLM cargo one at the other side of the apron.
Certainly not the everyday visitor here

Surprising indeed, that sure is a short hop to STR

Well, there is someone else here not that really proud about the latest decisions with the home airline, but that´s another story!.

What happened?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Now that´s a surprise, this is a french registered plane,
F-OHGX, "Madaba" is the A320 like on schedule.

What is so surprising about that? RJ has had french registered aircraft for a while now

Thanks for sharing another interesting report!

cheers,

Brendan

For example the move to 4U, lot´s of not that happy customers around STR.

Nice read and pictures Markus, thanks for sharing with us.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Fokker 70, registered OE-LFG, new to the log and leg no. 17 on type.

- Now that is impressive, 17 F70 flights, I have just the 1.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
RJ quotes an el cheapo 1200.00 Euro´s on it´s website for the upcoming two legs.
But well, when you click the very same routing and AB flightnumbers it calms down to 125.00 Euro´s for this leg.
And interesting, too, when you click the second leg to LHR operated by BA on AB flightnumbers it´s further down to less than 100.00 Euro´s. Not bad, isn´t it?.


- Now that is an amazing difference!

I've flown RJ from HKG-BKK-AMM-LHR, service on the flights IMO really depended upon the crew, some sectors were good, others, not so good.

Cheers

Mark
