Re: Any experiences of flying on Swiss via ZRH?

Thanks for all the replies :mrgreen: Nothing has been booked yet as I am considering options but Swiss are still high on my list. An inflight snack is something I do like as on some of our early morning flights we have had to leave our hotel without a proper breakfast and buy something (pricey) at t...

Any experiences of flying on Swiss via ZRH?

Swiss is just one of the airlines I am considering for our holiday next year (others are LOT, KLM and Lufthansa). Does anyone have any experience of flying on a connecting flight via ZRH? I an reading some poor reviews of Swiss but I had always assumed they had a good reputation for service. I am co...

Re: WAW-AMS-NCL on KLM 11/09/17

Great reports! Glad you enjoyed Warsaw :ugeek: Warsaw is a beautiful, amazing, fascinating city. The only downside was the weather preventing us seeing so much (we had planned to visit a few of the parks but rain prevented us and we only experienced Saxon Gardens on the day before we came home). Ne...

Re: WAW-AMS-NCL on KLM 11/09/17

You will soon be able to register for an Avro farewell flight at the end of October. BRU-GVA-BRU (last commercial flight) or BRU-BRU (Avgeek flight). As well as SN withdrawing the Avro, KLM are also withdrawing the Fokker jet. That is another type I had hoped to fly in one day but I'm too late :-( ...

Re: WAW-AMS-NCL on KLM 11/09/17

You photographed the Brussels Airlines Avro RJ100 OO-DWD. Since today this is the only Avro left in SN's fleet: a rarity! I was pleased to see SN's Avro, last time I saw an SN aircraft it was an Airbus in KRK. Such a shame that the Avro era is almost at an end, I remember our first Sabena flight wa...

WAW-AMS-NCL on KLM 11/09/17

Warsaw to Amsterdam KL1364 We loved Warsaw but the weather had not been kind - it only improved on the Friday before we flew home on the Monday. It was overcast at WAW. We had checked in online the day before so we just had to wait to drop off our checked in luggage. The screen was slow to show the...

Re: NCL-AMS-WAW on KLM 04/09/17

Thanks for your comments Andre. I was very happy with KLM. I didn't even consider BA this year with all their strikes and this new thing with the meals. I didn't know anyone was charged for snacks on KLM (unless maybe they order something special) I just booked an ordinary economy ticket. I paid for...

NCL-AMS-WAW on KLM 04/09/17

After visiting Krakow last year and enjoying it, I thought it would be great to visit Warsaw. I checked flights with LOT from Heathrow and KLM from Newcastle, Manchester and Edinburgh. I settled on KLM from Newcastle, as the flight timings were good and I had wanted to fly with the oldest airline fo...

Re: Tips and advice for WAW airport?

AMS was fine - there were some queues at the ordinary passport desks near the entrance to the C gates but I used the e-passport gate and there was no queue there. We fly back today and we are currently at WAW.

Thanks for the replies :mrgreen: We had our first experience of WAW on Monday this week - we didn't pass through any passport check when we arrived (maybe because we arrived from a Schengen country) and just walked through the green customs lane to find the train into Warsaw.

Re: Brussels to Billund (and back)

The only time I had a luggage problem at BRU was in 2006 when British Airways didn't manage to put our bags on the plane. Every time we've flown with SN, bmi and VLM there has never been a problem. We've always found the handlers at BRU to be very efficient and our luggage has never been damaged.

Some European airports are truly vile (Munich and CDG come to mind) and some are pleasant and easy to use. Which category does WAW come into?

Re: Menorca-Brussels: connecting flights not recommended by Ryanair

Love the inflight photos of the clouds. I couldn't tolerate the trumpets though. If ever I ended up on Ryanair (which is very highly unlikely) I would hope for a slight delay in order to escape being serenaded by aforementioned trumpets. I hope KLM don't play trumpets.

Re: Tips and advice for WAW airport?

LHR was a nightmare back in 2006 - landed at Terminal One from MAN and then had to dash over to Terminal Four to catch our flight to BRU. Had to use the fast track security lane and dash to the gates area. After arrival in BRU we discovered that none of our bags had accompanied us - one was still at...
