So, here I am at "Manchester airport", the day started early and some necessary shopping is done. What about the action at the apron?. For example these good looking prop?
Just for any speedy delivery needs!
Well, it´s England. Sitting in the sun, warm, watching the planes gone by till this one
An irish registered Virgin, interesting
It looks like the machine for London
No chance to go for a lounge here. Sunny, just a couple of clouds, 9 degrees and windy, nothing else expected in England, isn´t it?
That´s the one at gate 18, I believe.
EI-EZV "Tartan Lassie" is an A320, leg no. 118 on type and a new machine to the log.
In the air with Eurofly from 20.05.2003, a name change for Meridiana at 28.02.2010 and with AerLingus since 02.04.2013. Three examples operated the Little Red brand and here are some stories:
Boarding now, time to go at 10.35 am, short ahead to schedule, just 35 minutes announced by "Virgin" from the 3048 meters "Two-Three-Right"
The fare is 64.00 Euro´s fixed via the airlines website.
Questions?. Just to clear it this way
Modern style, so it looks like
Cabin crew is all female, one senior, nice talking, one elder, ok, one middle aged nice and one younger, not that really motivated today, hangover style!.
Cockpit crew is irish, the chief introduces the crew by name during a nice welcome speech, he´s once again to hear short to London. No route or flight level data to notice. Do not miss the safety card, isn´t it?
Tyrrells plane crisps and free drinks , now that fit´s perfectly
Six for me at least around 29F, the load is not more than 50%.
Brown red oldfashioned style leather seats, low legroom and not that really clean it is.
Don´t get me wrong, but this looks like London, so fast and much faster than
Marvellous views all around, ok it´s March and it´s England, perfect!
And here we are, "London Heathrow Airport", the 3660 meters "Two-Seven-Left", sunny and windy at 16 degrees. 11.40 am, ontime, english perfection!
Always these final legs, just a moment, please!.
