MesajSubiect: From the New to the Old Europe (SOF-VAR-BRU-BBU/OTP-SOF)   Sam 30 Mai 2009, 19:36

Hi again.
I'm resizing my photos in photobucket now, so they'll be 800x600 very soon...
I didn't found a better title for this trip between Bulgaria and Rumania and the European capital Brussels.

Do you want a variety of flights. You have it : the first Bulgarian domestic low cost link, a charter filght by Jetairfly, a flight with the Rumanian low cost Blue air and the business class of Bulgaria air at the end...

The Wizz flight landed 30 min earlier... I finished my work at 10:00. And I had many many time to spend in Varna. The "sea-capital" of Bulgaria looks really like a European city (better than Sofia or Bucarest)...
I was very happy to see that the Bulgarian NDSV (liberal party) has a presentation of its European team (leaded by EU commisar Kuneva)...

The begining was very early (4 in the morning)... Than a 1 hour trip on E79 to Sofia airport.

Terminal 1 (the old one) now used by LCC and charters :





I liked very much the smiling personnal of Swissport, the handling agent of Wizz air...
Wizz air flight to Rome, the our one and a charter to Bodrum are the only flights here.












Wizz air departed to Rome, I missed the next aircraft of Lufthansa... Embarassed











Till waiting, one Bae has landed from Varna... Balance must be OK. Very Happy









Flight 90% full. The early morning flight is not a problem for Wizz passengers... Smile












Two Bae operated by Hemus air for Bulgaria air regional flights.





LZ-WZB :



Inflight :



Varna , All White airways (the new joke-name of Bulgaria air due to its white aircrafts) waiting its flight to Helsinki :



Varna :



The beach Smile





My Euro-parliament elections choice Smile





After there is a night flight to Brussels, the only things I remember are boarding and landing Very Happy

Some pictures from Varna :








Here I can see a white (AWA - All White airways) Boeing 737 and one Bulgarian air charter Mad Dog Smile










Jetairfly to Brussels : Boarding NOW Very Happy









Malev : just arrived from BUD :



Landed at Brussels, a "brother" Boeing next to us :



Here is hot traffic...





I took some pictures and I run to my hotel room to take a shower and sleep 2-3 hours...








One British :



Self Check-in ( still absent at OTP and SOF Sad )



Bulgaria air ticket desk :



My hotel some 3 hours later :






I finished my work very in stile "fast and furious" Very Happy Now I make a visit of the Terminal. Before check in for my Blue air flight.



The cargo terminal Extension?







Some aircrafts over there...













I missed a white 320 (probably All White flight to Sofia). But it was time for check in :



You can see more photos from Brussels here :

Second part :
My Varna-Brussels flight was 100% full, the Brussels-Baneasa flight at 2/3...
Blue air is a good airline triying to find its place between MOL hard low-cost model and the middle cost Air Berlin way of travel...

Landing Baneasa. I have a question : Who decides that that can be an airport and worst an International Airport. I had the impression to be somewhere in the heart of the African desert...

Here some photos :






























Bucarest is a pretty nice town, but a little bit surcharged.





It's time to go to Otopeni.
We passed near Baneasa, a Wizz over there :



I arrive at Otopeni early to finish my work...



Domestic Terminal : not very fun Very Happy Tarom and Tarom...



We can see much more colours at International Flights :



And if Baneasa is the worst airport I ever saw, the Otopeni is one of the Best...



There is free WiFi and Billa Smile







Check in opens on time. I check in and I go to the Business Lounge :





Before I make a tour of the Boarding area :











The Business Lounge :





Boarding on time :

Almost everyone (not me) is surprised to see this ATR with belleair.аl titles.






A CRJ900 of Lufthansa, one Turkish and a new aircraft for AWA?











320 of Hellas Jet flying for Olympic with 20 passengers





Tarom's ATR



Business Class catering.





Shampaign for welcome, coffea and juice some times and a bottle of wine for Good Bye for a 40 min flight. Very good.

I liked very much the ATR for regional flights...



Landing Sofia :

























That's it. I hope you like it...
