We need to wait for an aircraft to arrive


"We need to wait for an aircraft to arrive". Well, that´s a good idea without a second runway or taxiway!.

Not that easy to catch a public bus back for the "Ajruport Internazzjonali ta' Malta". Construction sites all around again, but finally it works.
Not the expected one, but the result is most important!.
Heading out for the "Flughafen Zuerich".
Sure, with some pictures:

Three for me again, nice and at least partial, really nice crew.
Definitely ok. I hope that Air Malta will stay airside this way.
Pretty well ontime it was also, sure good to know with not that much time in between for the next flight!.

More to come.
Bis dann!.

The flight less loaded, three for me and a nice crew, definitely ok by Air Malta this way.
As usual, with public transport bus services, it is not that easy to locate the right one at the tight time. But finally it works for the city.
More time needed than expected, but it was cheap. Construction sites all around the hotel, but finally I´ve found a way!.

More to come.
Narak dalwaqt!.

Comfy it was, as far as possible.
A less loaded flight. Three seats for me in the rear part of the cabin.
Crew was nothing special, but ok.
Well ontime at my destination and lucky me, no terminal change here for the next airline!.

More to come.
Bis dann!.
