Not really any problems - just some miscommunication. Had a great trip today.
FCT access before and after the flight was granted, although transportation between FCT and GAT needs to be arranged separately on your own!

It looks like the Private Jets Promo was a full success as some FTers already seem to be planning their next flights ?

"The catering is stored in the back on top of the toilet. But don't worry, we never use this! It's clean!"

Great photos!

I wonder if they have the time to serve all this on VIE-BTS?

Do we have an idea how many FTer and people from other forums are actually doing a Mileage Run?

It's self service ! The food is stored on top of the toilet at the back ! Make sure Lars gets one of the cheap seats at the back...

Ah, that's the reason for the champagne incident. If the plane stinks of stale champagne tomorrow it's all your fault!

I wonder if the food will be the same ex-VIE.

Hmm, let's see - we had two HONs who needed to maximize their LHPJ Experience by grabbing every broschure there was! The only SEN just took the champagne and the two FTL and one M&M stripped the plane of the rest of goodies that were left behind, including all the roses and "Gänseleberpasteten." So, if you do, in fact, get the same aircraft - we left you the captain, his co-pilot, one oxygen mask, two life vests and two bottles of "Hohes C" under "the hood"
Come to think of it, we should have left something for the next group to find and exchange and leave something for the next etc - you get the idea! May be you guys can start, as I needed to keep all my things, so I can put them on ebay
