"Enjoying Czech service, sure?"

The trip in one word:

"RESISTANT"

Ahoj, dear readers,

A view for the interior with a 50% load and close to all pax seated upfront, sure ok with me at 27A and so on!

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014086_zps74811310.jpg
Looks like just a bit oldfashioned and yes, not unexpected, the legroom is low

The "Kormidelnik" is Czech, all anouncements in Czech only. Ok, the french fly local and who expect a German on this route. FRA is somewhere below the clouds without further informations about the flightlevel.
En Espagnol, sure, definitely needed on this route

But it works

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014096_zps2f44431f.jpg
And cloudy it is around "Letiště Václava Havla Praha"

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014106_zps70b0dbdf.jpg
Ok, check the screen and no lounge used here. The fare is 66.00 Euro´s managed by Opodo.de

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014116_zps4f119d91.jpg
This is "Dnepropetrovsk", the Fokker 100 like on schedule. The second leg on OE-LVN after VIE-STR and leg no. 43 on the '100 at all. Since 27.11.1991 under the American and Jetsgo colours, 15 examples are in the actual fleet.
Two stories on the plane are here:

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014118_zps1e47cda5.jpg
The load is well distributed, biz 0%, eco 100% and 20C for me.
Czech also here, ok, no surprise

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014120_zps7eb21bac.jpg
Cabin crew is two women, one younger, one middle aged, both ok.
Cockpit crew is from Austria, the captain with a short welcome after boarding, some minutes to wait for our slot. The FO sounds not that really relaxed on the way with a short delay for our destination. No route or flightlevel info.
Looks like long this way

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014124_zpsff1f2ea3.jpg
6.45 pm, just 40 minutes by "Austrian" from the 3715 meters runway "Zero-Six", 20 degrees and partly coudy it is.
This is a modern style cabin, grey leather seats, lower legroom and where is the special green colour?.
The safety card

Vöslauer for me, please

Touchdown at the 3600 meters runway "One-Six". 7.40 pm, very short after schedule, 17 cloudy degrees.
What means also finally at "Vienna International Airport" and ready to go for the next screen

Here we are with the first 200 visited airports:


Visited airports auf einer grِكeren Karte anzeigen

And just a couple more:


Visited Airports II auf einer grِكeren Karte anzeigen



No chance for a lounge now.
Boarding right away from F36 and I prefer the Fokker, sure

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014133_zpsafa83084.jpg
08.30 pm, 15 minutes behind schedule, nothing out of the ordinary in the evening. 17 degrees and cloudy sky, 55 min from the 3500 meters runway Two-Nine.
Screens out and the cabin from 23D, the second to last row aisle and all seats are taken here
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014134_zps1925bc21.jpg
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014135_zps23ffa432.jpg
The load is 100% in biz and also eco, better not to talk about it closer.
Cabin crew is three woman, one middle aged, well built, blonde, nice
one young, cute, slim, long brown hair, nice, really nice and
one elder, brown hair, also nice.
Dark blue leather seats, the legroom is ok and it´s also clean here.
Cockpit crew is from Austria, the "Kapitän" with a nice welcome during boarding, some more minutes needed for baggage loading, but nothing serious expected and once again detailed inflight.
Ah, do not forget this:
I´am on OE-LDC "Kiev", leg no. 109 on the A319 and also a new entry to the log.
Seven planes on type are in the fleet,
this example since 07.07.2004 and here is a short story
http://avherald.com/h?article=45d149f4&opt=0
Well, the safety card shows something different
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014136_zps03dfc1ea.jpg
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014137_zpsa20876fb.jpg
Service is chocolate and free drinks. Routing via SZG, no further info about the flightlevel.
That fit's
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014138_zps0825114d.jpg
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014139_zpsa91bd62f.jpg
Touchdown at Two-Five, 9.35 pm, 10 minutes after schedule, 18 degrees and clear sky.
And finally back at "Flughafen Stuttgart Manfred Rommel"
for a swift goodbye Austrian style
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/CPH07/CZECHAPRIL2014140_zps608faae5.jpg

Here are the conclusions:
1.)Travel Service CDG-PRG: A smart shuttle for dreamland
2.)Austrian PRG-VIE: Full it was today
3.)Austrian VIE-STR: Really nice staff on the final service


And now we are touring around rural places and less experienced planes like this

Hey Markus!

Nice report and very timely, as I'm booked on an OS Fokker 100 in a couple of weeks. Very much looking forward to it. 

Thanks for posting!

Cheers,

Hi Markus.

Thanks for sharing your travel experiences with Travel Smart and Tyrolean. It is good to see that you were able get plenty of photos on the apron while boarding.

I like the way that in a couple of shots you were able to align the wingtip livery with the tail of another airline, e.g. with the tail of Air One and with Smart Wings. Good contrasts.

Hi Markus,

Good to read another report of yours and especially interesting about Travel Service after they operated so many charter flights out of ZRH last year.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The ticket is fixed at 78.00 Euro´s with Tripsta.de, but sorry, not on this one

That really would have been a bargain!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Reply 1):
This is "Letiště Václava Havla Praha",
are you sure?. It looks more like France to me!

Mmmm, Paul, time for a trip to France I think!

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Service is chocolate and free drinks

That Milka wafer looks good too. Not so keen on the full flights on OS though, looks tight.

Happy flying
