Some quality lounge time to follow, sure, with the Hugo Junkers place.
This ticket is fixed with BA directly,
the fare is 65.00 Euro´s.
OLCI works and also the BP is homeprinted just to stay airside here.
And down for the very groundfloor it is to catch the flight from gate B42, passport cecked at the gate and the agent decided for the very first time that my bag doesn´t fit in the cabin.
Come on, this cute small black bag togehter with all these big heavy carry on´s down in these dark, cold baggage compartment?.
Hah, no way, definitely not!

Under the wing, you know, with
G-DCEB, the Saab 2000 like on schedule,
no individual name to see.
Leg no. 7 on type and a new entry to the log it is.
In the air from 30.04.1996 with Crossair, Saab itself and finally Eastern. 9 Saab´s are in the Eastern fleet.
There are no stories to show here

1.20 pm, ontime to leave the "Düsseldorf Airport". 1.00 "Eastflight" hours from the 3000 meters "Two-Three-Left" at 8 cloudy degrees.
The cabin down the aisle

18D, the last row for me with
the ceiling and the ok style legroom

The load is 90%, mostly biz.
Cockpit crew is from the UK with a nice and detailed welcome on the ground english style, like it.
Routing is via BRU.
Ok, ok, but Lagos, really?

What should you do in such a "boring" city like London in the early afternoon?. Better to stay at the hotel and try to catch some sleep!.
Ahem, no chance to sleep with all these terrible noisy planes coming and going!.
And now?. Bank, nothing for me!

Emirates, what´s this?
 photo FRANFEB14059_zpsda8116d3.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14060_zpse9f23faa.jpg
Sounds like a special flight, isn´t it?
 photo FRANFEB14061_zps354151a8.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14062_zps06b246f7.jpg
Ok, ok, I should change my location this way and always these noisy planes above!

 photo FRANFEB14064_zps0f9b098d.jpg
And this is really London, not Austria?
 photo FRANFEB14065_zps2bc5f5f5.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14066_zpsc2c11af9.jpg
Well, so it looks like
 photo FRANFEB14067_zps47d4fd7e.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14068_zpsbea57e1f.jpg
Roma or the Private Suites?
 photo FRANFEB14069_zps705772ac.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14070_zps6ee40e40.jpg
Just departed
 photo FRANFEB14071_zps000865d7.jpg

Bye now to London
 photo FRANFEB14073_zpsbc17fd90.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14074_zpsf88c967d.jpg
On the way for, well, London!
 photo FRANFEB14075_zpsa0125c2c.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14076_zps058c4fce.jpg
Steep it is
 photo FRANFEB14077_zps0a4a53f9.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14078_zps228fd5c8.jpg
And boy, shaky it is!
 photo FRANFEB14082_zps1fcac477.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14083_zps9a98dbef.jpg
No I´am not angry this way, I simply count on god and british engineering
 photo FRANFEB14084_zpsa452f7cd.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14085_zpse29e9113.jpg
For finals and touchdown
 photo FRANFEB14086_zpse2e86875.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14087_zps213d4154.jpg
A flightdeck visit maybe?

The engine
 photo FRANFEB14091_zpsdef5590e.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14092_zps63ba7c80.jpg
I recommend a night in this "boring" city in any case!
 photo FRANFEB14093_zpse0fa168b.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14094_zpsbf7ecda1.jpg
Along these small waters
 photo FRANFEB14095_zpsa1391121.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14096_zps1042eed5.jpg
Maybe above the bridge?
 photo FRANFEB14097_zpsd450ff40.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14098_zps20f8e0ce.jpg
Up for the castle or maybe down for the underground?
 photo FRANFEB14099_zps04e77452.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14100_zps61170974.jpg
Ahem, are you sure, there is really no other way to go?
 photo FRANFEB14101_zps71e8a33a.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14102_zps9c38dfc9.jpg
I should better read my newspapers local style, there is simply nothing interesting to see from above
 photo FRANFEB14103_zpsbe41bf3c.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14104_zps23a967e7.jpg
Just the everynight lights, nothing special at all!
 photo FRANFEB14106_zpsc8b96e4f.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14107_zps35e8d493.jpg
Or wait, I should take a nap right now!
 photo FRANFEB14108_zps05437e0f.jpg
 photo FRANFEB14109_zpsf35449d7.jpg
The final view before I close my eyes
 photo FRANFEB14110_zps24257b79.jpg
I don´t know how but not that long thereafter I´am back at the hotel. Or was it a dream maybe?.
Anyway, short nights, now that´s nothing new to me or should I better just to minimize the risk of missing the flight tomorrow or this morning stay away from the comfy bed at all?.
Hah, no way, I´ve never oversleep, never ever!

Here are the conclusions:
1.)Airberlin STR-DUS: The relaxed way to start the trip.
2.)Eastern Airways DUS-LCY: Good to see the Saab up and running.

A bientôt, take care.
