#1894 – AvGeek Weekend Trip #6 (AMS – CDG, ORY – MRS – BOD – AMS)

ENGLISH

In mid-February, I did my first Avgeek Weekend Trip of 2017 to Marseille (via Paris on the outbound and via Bordeaux in the inbound 😛 ). At the time I wasn’t sure whether I would write the story or not. Well, as it turned out, I have decided that I would 😀 .

AF 1341 (Amsterdam – Paris CDG)

AF Logo
Flight: Air France AF1341
Equipment: Airbus A321-200 reg F-GTAM
ATD: 11:42 CET (Runway 09 of AMS)
ATA: 12:30 CET (Runway 09L of CDG)

The weather in Amsterdam was not quite cooperative this morning. The fog was quite thick which limited Schiphol’s runways use for safety reason. Consequently, my 10:40 flight was delayed to 11:30. Luckily I spared quite a lot of transit time in Paris so I wasn’t worried at all. I just enjoyed my now extra time at KLM Crown Lounge, haha.

Anyway, today’s flight was operated with Air France’s Airbus A321-200 reg F-GTAM. It was a regular Air France’s Amsterdam-Paris flight so I wouldn’t get to too much details here. However, I did feel that the quality of the complimentary snack they served on the flight had been reduced, though.

Paris – Orly

Just like in my 4th AvGeek Weekend Trip, I had to change airports in Paris, haha. Thank to my Flying Blue Gold membership, I was entitled for free transfer between the two airports with Le Bus Direct (one way journey would have cost €21).

Unlike in my 4th AvGeek Weekend Trip, this time my flight was scheduled to depart from Hall 20 of Orly Airport. And there was an Air France lounge in this hall, yeay! Haha 😆 . Anyway, the lounge was descent, though the food selection could have been more substantial especially given that it was the after lunch-time period, in my opinion.

AF 6016 (Paris ORY – Marseille)

AF Logo
Flight: Air France AF6016
Equipment: Airbus A319-100 reg F-GPMF
ATD: 16:18 CET (Runway 08 of ORY)
ATA: 17:19 CET (Runway 31L of MRS)

My flight AF6016 departed on time today. It was operated with an Air France’s Airbus A319-100 reg F-GPMF. After boarding, I settled onto my 1F seat. It wasn’t a full flight today. In fact, the two seats next to me were empty, so it was really nice! Haha 😛

We took off from runway 08 of Paris – Orly Airport, and then made a southward turn towards Marseille. Again, it was a pleasant uneventful flight with Air France. A mini snack and drink service was provided about halfway through to Marseille. About an hour later, we landed at runway 31L of Marseille Provence Airport.

Marseille

As you know, just a week before, I also spent my weekend in Marseille. So it indeed felt quite “weird” for me to be back there this weekend, haha 😆 .

Today was a super beautiful day in Marseille as well!!

A beautiful sunny day in Marseille!!

Obviously there was not much difference; but the weather was much better this weekend. There was almost no cloud and on Sunday, the sun was shining and it was about 16°C!!

AF 7017 (Marseille – Bordeaux)

Flight: Air France AF7017
Equipment: Airbus A320-200 reg F-GXG
ATD: 15:15 CET (Runway 31R of MRS)
ATA: 16:04 CET (Runway 23 of BOD)

The lounge at Marseille Provence Airport was small but, in my opinion, provided really good service. I really loved it! 🙂

Anyway, the flight today was operated by Air France’s Airbus A320-200 reg F-GKXG. Luckily, it departed on time (I had quite a tight connection time in Bordeaux). I settled onto my bulkhead 2A seat after boarding. Again, the domestic flight was not full this afternoon.

As before, this as another pleasant and uneventful flight with Air France. At 16:04, we landed at runway 23 of Bordeaux–Mérignac Airport. Here is the landing video:

Quick Transit in Bordeaux

My domestic flight from Marseille parked at Terminal B while my connecting international flight to Amsterdam was scheduled to depart from Terminal A at 17:00. So I was quite in a rush to move between the two terminals given my quite tight transit time. Having said that, I found our gate in Terminal B to be super convenient as it was basically next to the airport exit door! Lol 😆

KL 1318 (Bordeaux – Amsterdam)

Flight: KLM KL1318 operated by KLM Cityhopper
Equipment: Embraer ERJ190 reg PH-EZF
ATD: 17:07 CET (Runway 23 of BOD)
ATA: 18:46 CET (Runway 36C of AMS)

This flight to Amsterdam was quite a full flight with a lot of connecting passengers (out of Amsterdam). So no wonder the crew tried to leave Bordeaux as soon as possible given the headwind to Amsterdam we would face today.

Anyway, the flight would be operated with KLM Cityhopper’s Embraer ERJ190 reg PH-EZF. Not long after settling in my seat 9A, we departed and took off from runway 23.

At around 17:30, the complimentary snack service (a wrap, which was quite nice) was distributed. Overall it was a pleasant flight with KLM, as usual. Btw, this flight also highlighted the noisiness of an Embraer ERJ190, hence enhancing further my take on ERJ190 vs CRJ1000, haha.

At 18:46, we landed at Schiphol Airport. The taxiing was quite long today, despite we were not landing in the Polderbaan, haha. We parked at the famous Fokker Farm and were taken by a bus to the airport terminal. I had my dinner at a restaurant at the airport before heading back to Delft with train.

Di pertengahan Februari, aku pergi dalam rangka Avgeek Weekend Trip pertama tahun 2017 ke Marseille (via Paris sewaktu berangkat dan via Bordeaux pulangnya, haha 😛 ). Waktu itu aku tidak yakin apakah aku akan menulis ceritanya atau tidak. Nah, ternyata, aku sudah memutuskan aku akan menuliskannya 😀 .

AF 1341 (Amsterdam – Paris CDG)

AF Logo
Penerbangan: Air France AF1341
Pesawat: Airbus A321-200 reg F-GTAM
ATD: 11:42 CET (Runway 09 of AMS)
ATA: 12:30 CET (Runway 09L of CDG)

Cuaca di Amsterdam sedang kurang bersahabat pagi ini. Kabutnya cukup tebal sehingga penggunaan landasan pacunya Schiphol jadi terbatas untuk alasan keamanan. Akibatnya, penerbangan jam 10:40ku jadi ditunda hingga jam 11:30. Untungnya, aku memiliki waktu transit yang lumayan lama sih di Paris sehingga aku tidak khawatir. Jadilah aku menikmati waktu ekstraku di KLM Crown Lounge ini, haha.

Pagi yang berkabut di Schiphol dan Airbus A321-200nya Air France dengan rego F-GTAM

Anyway, penerbangan hari ini dioperasikan dengan Airbus A321-200nya Air France dengan rego F-GTAM. Ini adalah penerbangan regulernya Air France di rute Amsterdam-Paris sehingga aku tidak akan menuliskan banyak detail. Hanya saja, aku merasa bahwa kualitas snack yang dibagikan di penerbangan ini kok agak menurun yah, hmm.

Landing at runway 09L of Paris - Charles De Gaulle Airport

Mendarat di landasan pacu 09L Bandara Paris – Charles De Gaulle

Paris – Orly

Seperti di AvGeek Weekend Trip ke-4ku, aku harus berganti bandara di Paris, haha. Berkat keanggotaan Flying Blue Gold-ku, aku bisa mendapatkan transfer gratis di antara dua bandara ini dengan Le Bus Direct (tiket satu arahhnya dijual normal dengan harga €21).

Salon Air France di Bandara Orly

Tidak seperti di AvGeek Weekend Trip ke-4ku, kali ini penerbanganku dijadwalkan di Hall 20 Bandara Orly. Dan di sana ada lounge-nya Air France loh, hore! Haha 😆 . Lounge-nya cukup nyaman, walaupun pilihan makanannya terlalu ringan sih apalagi waktu itu kan setelah jam makan siang ya, menurutku loh.

AF 6016 (Paris ORY – Marseille)

Penerbangan: Air France AF6016
Pesawat: Airbus A319-100 reg F-GPMF
ATD: 16:18 CET (Runway 08 of ORY)
ATA: 17:19 CET (Runway 31L of MRS)

Penerbangan AF6016ku berangkat tepat waktu. Airbus A319-100nya Air France dengan rego F-GPMF digunakan hari ini. Setelah naik pesawat, aku duduk di kursi 1F-ku. Penerbangan hari ini tidak penuh. Malahan, dua kursi di sebelahku kosong dong. Asyik ya! Haha 😛 .

Taking off from runway 08 of Paris - Orly Airport

Lepas landas dari landasan pacu 08 Bandara Paris – Orly

Kami lepas landas dari landasan pacu 08 Bandara Paris – Orly, dan kemudian berbelok ke arah selatan menuju Marseille. Lagi, ini adalah penerbangan yang nyaman dan uneventful dengan Air France. Layanan snack mini dan minuman juga dibagikan di tengah perjalanan. Sekitar satu jam kemudian, kami mendarat di landasan pacu 31L Bandara Marseille Provence.

Marseille

Seperti yang sudah pada tahu, seminggu sebelumnya juga aku menghabiskan akhir pekan di Marseille. Jadi memang “aneh” rasanya aku kembali lagi ke sana akhir pekan ini, haha 😆 .

Today was a super beautiful day in Marseille as well!!

Hari yang indah dan cerah di Marseille!!

Jelas tidak ada banyak perbedaan; tetapi cuaca kali ini jauh lebih enak nih. Hampir tidak ada awan dan di hari Minggu, matahari bersinar cerah dengan suhu udara 16°C!!

AF 7017 (Marseille – Bordeaux)

Penerbangan: Air France AF7017
Pesawat: Airbus A320-200 reg F-GXG
ATD: 15:15 CET (Runway 31R of MRS)
ATA: 16:04 CET (Runway 23 of BOD)

Lounge di Bandara Marseille Provence kecil tetapi, menurutku, layanannya oke banget loh. Aku sukaa! 🙂

Anyway, penerbangan hari ini dioperasikan dengan Airbus A320-200 reg F-GKXG milik Air France. Untungnya, penerbangannya tepat waktu (waktu transitku cukup ketat di Bordeaux). Aku duduk di kursi 2Aku setelah naik pesawat. Lagi, penerbangan domestik ini tidaklah penuh.

Seperti yang lalu, ini adalah penerbangan nyaman dan uneventful dengan Air France. Jam 16:04, kami mendarat di landasan pacu 23 Bandara Bordeaux–Mérignac. Berikut ini video pendaratannya:

Transit Kilat di Bordeaux

Penerbangan domestikku dari Marseille diparkir di Terminal B sementara penerbangan koneksi internasionalku dijadwalkan di Terminal A jam 5 sore. Jadilah aku agak terburu-buru untuk pindah terminal akibat waktu transitku yang mepet. Eh, walaupun begitu, aku merasa gerbangku di Terminal B itu nyaman banget loh karena pada dasarnya berada tepat di sebelahnya pintu keluar bandara! Haha 😆 .

KL 1318 (Bordeaux – Amsterdam)

Penerbangan: KLM KL1318 dioperasikan oleh KLM Cityhopper
Pesawat: Embraer ERJ190 reg PH-EZF
ATD: 17:07 CET (Runway 23 of BOD)
ATA: 18:46 CET (Runway 36C of AMS)

Penerbangan ke Amsterdam ini cukup penuh dan ada banyak penumpang transitnya (via Amsterdam). Jadi tidak heran krunya berusaha untuk berangkat dari Bordeaux secepat mungkin akibat headwind yang akan kami hadapi di perjalanan ke Amsterdam hari ini.

Anyway, penerbangan hari ini dioperasikan dengan Embraer ERJ190nya KLM Cityhopper dengan rego PH-EZF. Tak lama setelah duduk di kursi 9Aku, kami berangkat dan lepas landas dari landasan pacu 23.

Sekitar jam 5:30 sore, layanan snack dibagikan (berupa sebuah wrap, yang mana cukup enak juga). Secara umum, ini adalah penerbangan yang nyaman dengan KLM, seperti biasanya. Btw, penerbangan ini juga menggaris-bawahi keberisikan Embraer ERJ190, sehingga memang mempertegas pendapatku akan ERJ190 vs CRJ1000, haha.

Senja di penerbangan KL1318

Jam 18:46, kami mendarat di Bandara Schiphol. Taxiing-nya lumayan lama hari ini, padahal kami tidak mendarat di Polderbaan, haha. Kami parkir di Fokker Farm dan kemudian dibawa bus ke gedung terminal bandara. Aku makan malam di sebuah restoran di sana sebelum kembali ke Delft dengan kereta.
