Re: WAW-AMS-EDI on KLM 14/09/2020

This is why I don't like the Embraer 190 (I specify the 190 because I don't have a problem with the 135 and 145). https://i.imgur.com/BplHMdA.jpg The seat to window alignment is absolutely ghastly. To see through the window you either have to twist your back and look over your shoulder or lean right...

Re: WAW-AMS-EDI on KLM 14/09/2020

Thanks for the comment Andre. I remember last year having Beemster cheese on all four flights, but then it was served in different ways - two flights with ordinary sandwiches and two flights with wraps. The only KLM flight without that particular sandwich this year was our very early morning flight ...

WAW-AMS-EDI on KLM 14/09/2020

We had a great holiday in Warsaw - the weather was good every day, the first time we've had a holiday in Poland without any rain. It was also nicer walking about and shopping in Poland than it is at home. Eating out was also more enjoyable as we didn't have to provide phone numbers and names and add...

Re: WAW-WRO with LOT 10/09/20

Thanks for the reply Andre. The experience with LOT was weird - they had my booking on the system but no evidence that I had also paid to select individual seats at the same time I booked the tickets (I had chosen specific seats because I wanted to be near the front to have an unobstructed view with...

WAW-WRO with LOT 10/09/20

I always like to try new aircraft types, airlines and airports, and when we were on holiday in Poland the other week I was able to do all three in one day :mrgreen: . I had booked a day trip to Wrocław, flying with LOT so I would finally get my flight in a Q400 (I had wanted to fly in this type for ...

Re: EDI-AMS-WAW with KLM 07/09/20

Thanks for the comment Andre. The KLM Embraer 190s are the only ones I have experienced so I have based my opinion of the type on them. If another airline had a better seat to window placement I would probably change my view because that is my big "gripe" with flying in the aircraft. The l...

EDI-AMS-WAW with KLM 07/09/20

I booked the holiday in December 2019, before COVID had even been heard of, but it was touch and go whether we would actually get our trip because of the virus. I had booked our "usual" flights, but a couple of weeks before we were due to go I was emailed by KLM to say that the AMS-WAW fli...

Re: Looking back to 2019: one year of flights

Mine is very bland in comparison. Apart from the stress of being given incorrect information on the Edinburgh Airport "live" departures website, leading me to think I would lose my holiday, my flying year was very quiet, just the now-usual KLM flights to Warsaw via Amsterdam. Next year wil...

Q400 seats

Is anyone familiar with the seats in the Q400? I have my first flight in one next year in seat 4A. Is the view likely to be good or do the seats have a poor window alignment like they do in the Embraer 190? In the Embraer the seats were "between" windows so I had to lean right forward or l...

Re: Where will you fly in 2020 ?

Nothing definite confirmed yet but hoping:
EDI-AMS-WAW with KLM.
WAW-WRO with LOT.
WAW-AMS-EDI with KLM.

Edit - as of 19th November I have one definite flight. LO3853 from WAW-WRO. My first flight in a Q400, my first flight with LOT and my first visit to Wroclaw.

I don't know why the Air Belgium A340 was in Warsaw on both occasions, their website doesn't mention serving Warsaw. Quite curious about that one :-)
Air Belgium is operating New York flights for LOT while its 787s are grounded with engine issues.
Thank you for explaining Andre :-)

Great report again, Louise. You were lucky to see the 100th Airbus delivered to Wizz Air, sporting a special livery. And in your film you caught the Air Belgium A340 again. In Warsaw I mean. As for your snacks, KLM clearly has it wrong. Airlines normally serve different meals on outbound (from AMS)...

WAW-AMS-EDI with KLM 09/09/19

After the stress and hassle of our outward flights the week before, we had a wonderful holiday in Warsaw at my favourite hotel. I always hate it when the holiday ends as that means no more flights for another year, but holiday weeks always pass quickly. KL1364 WAW-AMS We arrived at WAW in very good ...

Re: EDI-AMS-WAW on KLM 02/09/19 Strike and Stress!

Thanks for your comments Andre :mrgreen: I knew nothing about the strikes until I received a text from KLM saying there may be delays to some flights. By that time we were in the departure area at EDI. I was very relieved to get to the gate for our flight to Warsaw and equally relieved when our hold...

EDI-AMS-WAW on KLM 02/09/19 Strike and Stress!

Once again we were to fly to Warsaw via Amsterdam with KLM and, like 2018, we chose to fly from Edinburgh on account of their longer transfer time in AMS. The longer transfer time was to prove an advantage in 2019! We arrived at EDI on 1st September and checked into the Doubletree by Hilton hotel in...

Is there any more info about this https://www.independent.co.uk/travel/ne ... 96586.html ?

I flew on that KLM 737 in 2017 and I just wondered if it will fly again or just be scrapped?
