✈ Flying To Gran Canaria On An Air Europa A330 ✈

Sat Jun 04, 2016 3:08 pm

Here is the trip report of my flight from MADRID to GRAN CANARIA on an AIR EUROPA Airbus A330-200.

As you already know, all my video trip-reports have a maximum duration of 10-11 minutes, so they are very dynamic and well edited in 4K quality (also 1080p). They have lots of comments both in english and spanish. You won't have to skip parts, as each video is made of around 70 different clips. Just sit back, relax and enjoy it!

Here we have some pics of the video:

Thanks for sharing. Business class seats look nice here on this aircraft, EC-LQP (ex-Cyprus Airways), although economy class seats here do not feature PTV screens, on a long-haul flight you might miss them. Most of their A332 however do offer them.

I find it interesting how UX manage these widebodies at Barajas: once they arrive from South America these are docked at a gate in T2, for domestic and Schengen flights (if the next flight is within Spain or Europe, usually to Barcelona or the Canaries), but then the arriving passengers have to exit through the stairs of the rear door and are bussed to the passports check of T1, probably it is the most convenient way.

In 2015 UX signed a deal to upgrade 12 A330 cabins:

What's the progress of these modifications? Will we see in the end all UX A330s in one cabin design? And are those Business Class seats shown in the picture the new "Stelia" ones?!

That is correct, I have just read that EC-LQP, the plane of this trip report, is actually the first one that got the new business class seats just three months ago. As you mention, the whole A330 fleet will be refurbished with these new seats. However, economy seats will apparently remain without any change.

Just check this link with the new features of this new business class seat. These are the new Stelia seats:

Almost all A330 have Ptv's on economy class. The planes that don't have them, are mostly used in flights that the passage should sleep almost all time to avoid jet lag (like Sao Paulo, for example, that departs close to midnight from Madrid, and arrives back to Madrid close to 5 a.m.)

Yes, they should have Ptv's in all A330, but viewing it this way make a little sense... or no...

Nice report, thank you for posting.

I recently flew Air Europa to TFN and got 738s both ways. I was hoping for an equipment change to an A330 as I saw they sometimes sent them there, but no luck unfortunately!

I also flew on a 737 on my way back from Gran Canaria to Madrid. I'll post the trip report soon.

Have you flown on the 737 with the sky interior?

Only ever with United, but yes.

Both of the 738s I was on with Air Europa were just the old interior. Nothing special, but also not awful. Same goes for every other airline I've ever flown the 737NG with! (WS, AA, FR, KL).
