Boarding started at 7:35am, 35 Minutes prior due to the plane at a Tarmac positions Who am I kidding, all positions are tarmac and the new airport would be greatly appreciated: D

The Brigade of Premium Service Buses awaiting

The Good thing going for us today was, all 8 Passenger in First boarded the bus quickly so we were on time. The bad thing, our plane was parked directly across the Runway from the Premium Terminal, and with no tunnels between the 2 sides, it meant a huge drive around Runway 15 to get to our plane.
The Drive took 15 Minutes and upon boarding, apparently 1st bus for the Economy Class have already boarded.
