A warm welcome to CMF at the visited airports map with no. 291:

And some more places:

Up early, as it usually is, well with a little help from my friends, cellphone, alarm clock, trucks on early morning deliveries, planes and things like this!.
Self service just around the corner for the terminal.
Seat selection and BP collection was done yesterday, so no need to hurry this way.
The ticket is fixed with BA directly, the fare
85.00 Euro´s.
Just a couple of minutes or two at security and inside the not that large secured area.
Well, just for the case, what about "Wait in Lounge?".
Or maybe wait a little bit longer in lounge?

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14112_zpsef50bd08.jpg
No real lounge used here.
Use the time meaningful, isn´t it?. Maybe to check the restroom for a shave what is missed earlier. No, I wasn´t in a hurry at all, never ever!.
A gate showing up, 1, how appropriate and this one is waiting or maybe I´am waiting for this one

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14116_zps86842b74.jpg
What about a ride on G-LCYN, the Embraer 190 like on schedule, one of these examples without an individual name?.
10.11.2010 is noted as first service with BA CityFlyer, 10 examples are in the fleet,
without a story to show here.
Leg no. 31 on type, new to the log

Well, if you looking for the sun I recommend not only Germany, also England sounds good for clear sky early morning self service apron boardings at 2 degrees

Cockpit crew is from England, the "Captain" with a really nice and detailed welcome.
The original scheduled captain called in sick and his crew rest duties after yesterdays late arrival resulted in the delay. Well explained this way, he´s once again on the mike nice and detailed inflight.
Bye now to "London City Airport".
08.00 am, 1.00 lazy hour late by "Flyer". 1.20 hours to go from the 1508 meters runway "Two-Seven". Maximum flightlevel is 28000 feet.
Hey, so close, no hurries

9 pax is certainly too much!.
25A, the last row window and the seat beside me is blocked, you know

The pilot informed us about some circling prior to finals with an really interesting procedure for the "Aéroport de Chambéry – Savoie". There is one flightpath only for departing and approaching planes and right now there is a plane on preparation for take off, so we should wait till it is off the path and we are allowed to approach finally

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14157_zps11e76d63.jpg
Down till the very end of the 2020 meters runway "One-Eight" at 10.30 am what is also close to 1.00 hours late

You know, these insanely expensive neon green set named "No Fear", ready for a close to suicidal race down the steepest black runs!

is ready

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14173_zps219b00fc.jpg
You don´t need rain protected stairs here, no way.
And well, the number of arrivals today is impressive

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14175_zps7f8597b6.jpg
Chambery Aeroport is very well covered with public transport options. Joke, nothing at all and with these massive number of arrivals there is the one and only taxista waiting out there. With the french guy in front not in a particular interest to share the cab.
Ahem, talking to the not that really motivated airport staff for another one.
Well, my connecting time for the city is a bit low with the late arrival but it works in the end and yes, I like these inexpensive taxi rides. And I´am sure I know who payed it´s part with these big new Audi car
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14176_zpse458d877.jpg
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14177_zpsbd9a4c97.jpg
So, if there is no plane to fly out of Chambery, what about a car?

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14179_zps747b188f.jpg
Well named, the Aerocar it is for Geneva and the fare is 30.00 Euro´s

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14185_zps4b0d940b.jpg
And the train takes ages just to compare

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14187_zpsca663327.jpg
The "Aéroport international de Genève" it is just an hour later for a healthy break at Starbucks and good to have no LX from LCY today on schedule, the inbound is cancelled
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14188_zps560e891a.jpg
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14189_zps5693e4fd.jpg
Well, the pleasure calms swiftly down when I´ve noticed that the cancelled LCY inbound is also the plane for ZRH, cancelled, too and that´s exactly my service

What about the visited countries?:

And maybe the recorded plane types?:

And also the checked airlines:


AIRLINES CHECKED auf einer größeren Karte anzeigen

A long line of waiting people at the LX ticket desk. What about to try my luck at the Star Gold Check-In counter?.
Sounds like a good idea and especially without luggage. The lady swiftly rebooked me for the earlier service, delayed, but that fit´s perfectly right now.
Security takes a little bit more time than usual, but it works in the end and you know this is Switzerland also with no other visible sign!

Gate A3 it is, no chance to visit the lounge here.
Call me "Bulach" HB-JLQ, an A320 it is and that´s also what the schedule later told me.
Leg no. 113 on type and new to the log.
With Swiss since 20.04.2011, 23 planes on type are in the fleet and there are no stories to show here

3.15 pm, 35 minutes late and also 35 minutes to go from the 3900 meters runway "Two-Three".
6 cloudy and wet degrees after the latest rain shower.
The ticket ix fixed with Swiss itself and the fare is 45.00 Euro´s.
The swiss "Pilot" with a nice welcome during boarding and an delay apologize. A couple of rebookings as the result and once again short inflight. Routing is via Berne at maximum 26000 feet

Cabin crew is all female, one senior, nice, one younger, brown hair, ok, one younger ok and one young woman, well what should I say?. Large, well built, short blonde hair, ever smiling, really nice.
Up for a sharp turn just above the airport

Just by surprise and also with this huge number of people at the counter. There are a good number of open seats here. It seems they are to slow to catch this service.
60% biz and others well mixed

This is HB-IXO, called "Ottoberg", the Avro RJ100 like on schedule.
New to the log it is and leg no. 17 on type.
In the air and around with Crossair, Swiss and Swiss European since 27.05.1996.
20 examples are in the actual fleet.
Here are two short stories:

5.55 pm what means 30 minutes late and also 30 minutes to go by "Euroswiss" from
the 2500 meters runway "Two-Eight".
6 degrees and rain here at the "Flughafen Zürich".
Service this way

A nice welcome from the flightdeck earlier. The whole crew is introduced by name. There are 2 "Captain´s" and one FO, also the pilot flying, at the front office this time. We see also one missing pax with bag offloading action and therefore missed the departure slot.
Traffic restrictions are also in place.
No route or flightlevel info.
45.00 Euro´s changed from my credit card to the Swiss account to fly this way.
The cabin is fitted with dark grey leather seats, good legroom and it´s clean so far

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRANFEB14229_zps969cc8f1.jpg
Call it a healthy load with biz fully booked and just 2 open seats in eco according to nice talking with the also nice FA during boarding.
There are two male FA´s on this service, both elder and nice.
Well, 19A and two for me sounds good,
especially today.
Yes, the safety card

Touchdown at "Two-Five", welcome back to the "Flughafen Stuttgart" at 6.30 pm, 20 minutes late, 6 degrees and cloudy it is.
Well, the car is where it should be,
waiting for me.

Here are the conclusions:
1.)BA CityFlyer LCY-CMF: Welcome to a cozy flight, like the FA called it.
2.)Swiss GVA-ZRH: A bumpy ride above the alps.
3.)Swiss European ZRH-STR: Comfy for the homebase.

Always these questions. And now?.
What about fine greece dining?:

Hi Markus !

Nice report with nice pictures!

Good to see you go to Chambery but too bad your stay was very short there. But with that weather, it was probably best that way……

Flights seem nice but nothing special.

Looking forward to your next report !

Very Nice TR Flieger67

You had a great approach over the lake du Bourget, too bad the weather did not follow.
One could expect to see more trafic during the winter in CMF, but maybe the apron gets busy during the week-end!
Too bad for the cancelled service but at the end flights seem good in all the sectors!

Thanks for sharing

You got a much nicer breakfast than on the Heathrow to Geneva or Heathrow to Luxembourg flights; I just got a small sandwich.

On one flight a disgusting bacon croissant with tomato paste and cream cheese.

I had no idea there was a bus to Chambery Airport.

How long does it take to Geneva Airport?

Hi Markus,

Nice to read the continuation of the Chambery trip. With the exception of England not the best day for flying weather wise, landing in CMF on a clear day must be amazing. Nice views of GVA though after take off despite the cloud.

BA impressed me last week too with the breakfast they served on a short flight, a big thumbs up from me for them.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Up early, as it usually is, well with a little help from my friends, cellphone, alarm clock, trucks on early morning deliveries, planes and things like this!.

Sounds like it was a good, loud wake up call!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
9 pax is certainly too much!.
25A, the last row window and the seat beside me is blocked, you know

A blocked seat and only 9 passengers, very special!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Passport check is managed in these tent like small building where you should prepare yourself for water dripping, well not only dripping, from the ceiling, welcome a la Francaise!

You have to love the quirks of these tiny airports.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
With the french guy in front not in a particular interest to share the cab.

What is it about France & taxis?

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Well, 19A and two for me sounds good,
especially today

Not another blocked seat?  
Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Always these questions. And now?.
What about fine greece dining?:

Greek dining? Where? When? Yes please!

Happy flying

Markus,

Good to read another tale. Nice to have logged Chambéry, which is indeed not easy to go to. Also well done on the swift action of you to rebook onto an earlier LX service to ZRH.

Any idea about a private jet experience?.
9 pax is certainly too much!

That’s a low load, one would expect these ski flights in winter to be full or well loaded at least?

Quote:
You know, these insanely expensive neon green set named "No Fear", ready for a close to suicidal race down the steepest black runs!

It seems you don’t like to ski 

Quote:
Well, the pleasure calms swiftly down when I´ve noticed that the cancelled LCY inbound is also the plane for ZRH, cancelled, too and that´s exactly my service

Bugger! But you immediately took appropriate action!

Exactly, the return London bound looks like full, so more lucky me.

Hello Markus,

Nice report on your experience to Chambery! A little bit of bad luck with the delayed flights today though.
Similar experience for the approach as I had - we too were circling a little while because another aircraft was taking off. Interesting for sure!

Hi Markus,

Another nice report you made here! Good idea to try the LCY-CMF route out, the LF looks quite worrying.
Good to see you were able to make it home despite the cancellation!

cheers,
