View from 17F – crew were Italians

Once the plane started taxi-ing I got to spot more planes.

Bye Czech Republic

The pilot made the announcements first in Italian followed by English. He provided the route for today:-

Prague – Left of Munich – Salzburg – Innsbruck – Bolzano – Verona – Brescia – Bergamo – Milan

easyjet’s in-flight magazine Traveller was a surprising good read.

Munich (I think)

There was a period of minor turbulence.

Cloudy

Luckily it cleared out soon. The crew made one round of BOB sales after the turbulence cleared.

The view outside the window became amazing as we flew over the Alps. Funnily we saw none of them in our time in Switzerland due to poor weather.

It was green again after the Alps. Italy would be next new country for me.

Reaching Milan

Touch down

We arrived at MXP T2 15 minutes late. MXP T2 is a budget terminal used by easyJet only.

Parked beside another easyJet A319

For the incredibly low price (€44 with one checked bag), we had no complaint for the service. It got us from point A to B without fuss and we wouldn’t mind flying with easyJet again.

There was an unexpected long walk between the gates and the baggage belts. It took us almost 15 minutes to walk between them. That must be a world record.

Walking…

… and walking…

… and walking…

… and walking…

Finally!

As seen in the earlier picture, there were kiosks which sold tickets for shuttle service to central Milan. There were two operators who were selling the tickets at the same price.

Buying shuttle bus ticket

We chose Malpensa Shuttle. One-way trip cost €10 and we found the bus to be leaving soon.

Turned out that we were the last to get up and we had to sit separately. I got the middle seat in the last row.

Surprisingly the wi-fi worked as advertised. It took us almost an hour to reach Milan Centrale.

From there, we would make our way to our accommodation for the night.
