787, ok

Call me "La Primera", simply the first
787-800 in America del Sud, CC-BBA.
New to the log it is and leg no. 4 on type for me.
By now there are 10 examples in the fleet and this one is in service since 31.08.2012.
Here are two stories:

"La Primera", whatever it means, but anyway I don´t mind to fly the very first 787 here in any case
 photo ESPAGNA032014281_zps07d45e01.jpg
 photo ESPAGNA032014282_zpsa9d662aa.jpg

Are you sure, an IB winglet and a LAN plane?

 photo ESPAGNA032014292_zps2d2fda47.jpg
You are?. Ok!
 photo ESPAGNA032014294_zps6fcafc49.jpg
 photo ESPAGNA032014295_zps11aa787f.jpg
3.10 pm, well ahead to schedule and we are on the way for 2.10 "LAN" hours from the 3500 meters "One-Four-Left" at 18 degrees and clear sky

Yes, mood lighting

 photo ESPAGNA032014300_zpsb010d2b0.jpg
Legroom is ok at 21J/K/L but not that good like in the last row and the load is 90%. Some very few Germans and mostly South American passengers

What an impressive wing
 photo ESPAGNA032014307_zpse51363f5.jpg
 photo ESPAGNA032014308_zps2f8a9c9f.jpg
Looks like pretty good this way

 photo ESPAGNA032014310_zpsdbaabe14.jpg
Well, Jamon sounds not that perfectly fitting

 photo ESPAGNA032014312_zps5856a259.jpg
Really nice to follow this wing on the way

The approach was, well, interesting to say the least.
A latin woman with a kid close to two years, so it looks like, in the middle block and the kid doesn´t
see any need to be buckled up for landing.
FA´s walking to the woman for several times, the kid cries so loud and strong for minutes till it throws up and also the mother cries. In the end it wasn´t strapped in at touchdown, won. For sure not the everyday needed experience

But we made it in the end for the "Flughafen Frankfurt am Main" and the 2800 meters runway "Two-Five-Right" at 16 degrees and also here to my surprise, clear sky

All more or less happy but nevertheless safely arrived

Bye now to "La Primera"
 photo ESPAGNA032014323_zps3e6980e6.jpg
The bag was really fast, the shuttle not, so we needed much more time for the car and for the homebase than ever expected, but we made it also in the end!.

The conclusions:
1.)Vueling BCN-MAD: Calm and well fixed in my seat.
2.)LAN MAD-FRA: Comfortable but not for everyone aboard.

And now?.
Well it seems there is no real need to go for Espagna to catch the sun, Alemagna is good, too!:
