At present: Evaluation – TUI Embraer E190 from Brussels to Dubrovnik

Early July, I loved a brief break at Europe’s latest ultra-luxurious seaside resort, One&Solely Portonovi in Montenegro (learn my evaluate right here). The keep was phenomenal, however getting there was much less nice. I flew with TUI fly from Brussels to Dubrovnik (which is near Croatia’s border with Montenegro). The flight – which was operated by one in all TUI’s 4 Embraer E190 jets – was uneventful. However the check-in on the TUI counters in Brussels Airport was shockingly chaotic and much from corona-proof.

TUI is the biggest leisure, journey and tourism firm on the earth, and it owns journey businesses, motels, airways, cruise ships and retail outlets.

PRICE OF MY TICKET

I paid 35 euros for my one-way ticket from Brussels to Dubrovnik. An addition, I additionally paid an additional charge of 8 euros to pick a window seat. Looking back, I shouldn’t have paid that additional charge because the flight was solely half full and the crew moved me to the exit row anyway.

CHECK-IN CHAOS AT BRUSSELS AIRPORT

I arrived at Brussels Airport 3 hours earlier than my flight’s scheduled departure time (one hour additional above the advisable time, since I most popular to have some additional time simply in case issues went improper). To my very own shock, there was a 2 hour queue on the TUI check-in space since solely 3 counters had been open for a whole bunch of passengers. Everybody was bunched collectively and passengers had been getting irritated and nervous concerning the prospect of probably lacking their flight. Given the pandemic state of affairs, the scene was virtually surreal and it was appalling that TUI was understaffing its counters, permitting these crowded traces and sanity to type. TUI might have completely prevented this example since they know precisely what number of passengers will examine in on any given day.

After two hours, I used to be lastly checked in and proceeded to the airport’s safety level, the place I encountered the same state of affairs. Just one screening line was open (out of 10), leading to lengthy queues and one other half-hour of additional ready time. I arrived on the gate 3 hours after arriving on the airport and 20 minutes after the scheduled departure time, however I used to be fortunate that my flight was barely delayed had a minor delay.
