Nur eine Strecke! Air Serbia Business Class A330 | YourTravel.TVOn February 4, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Hey guys and welcome to a new flightreport. We are in Serbia, in Belgrad and today we’ll fly in Air Serbias’ Business Class in their A330-200 to NYC. But first we want to buy some Souvenirs. We bring them home from all the different countries for our Family and Friends. Normally Magnets or key fobs. Did you find something? Yeah, I have to check what is good. It isn’t easy. Now we go in the new Air Serbia Business Class Lounge in Belgrad. Today we’ll fly Business Class to Economy conditions. Those People, who have seen our trip report from Wednesday, know why it was so cheap. We had to pay 350€ for the One-Way-Flight from Zurich over Belgrad to NYC. But I can explain it again. That was an error fare. A mistake by an online travelagent. We were so cheek and we have booked the ticket for that low Price. And it isn’t cancelled, so we can fly. Something like that we post on our webside. Error fares or very good deals. You can check it out easily: globaltraveler.tv I’ll connect our Homepage with the infocard. Click on the “I” and check it out! This is the Air Serbia Lounge, it is new. It is opened one year ago. And let’s check the Food here. We have 30-40 minutes left until we’ll board. We have to be one hour before the official Departure at the gate, as us was just told. The friendliness here is very very good in Serbia. You’ve seen it in the last trip report. The Crew was so friendly. Here in the lounge too and I expect that the next flight will be even that nice. Dominik wants to eat Serbian bean stew. No that isn’t it. Mashed potatoes. But we are not that hungry and here is a bar. You can fill myself with enthusiasm with small Things. I love mashed potatoes and meat balls. And both together is the best! I like the lounge ehre from Air Serbia. In the bathroom area is a shower. And when it is empty in the lounge, like Right now, you can have a look inside. It is very modern and clean. It is funny, isn’t it. This is the Business Class from Air Serbia in the A330-200 It is the only Long-haul Aircraft, that Air Serbia owns. With that they fly only to New York. The configuration is the same like Air New Zealands. We flew them some time ago. They Play Serbian Techno Music, which is cool in my eyes. You can say that it is a Herringbone configuration. Like the fish bones. On board of Air New Zealand it was a bit cramped. Here it Looks different. Let’s see how it will be on the 10h flight to NYC. Here are 18 Business seats. And do you see it? The seats on the left side are more seperated, because there is just one row On the Right side there are two rows. This is the Air Serbia Business Class in their A330-200. In a Herringbone configuration. The feed are Always to the front and it is hard to have a look outside. You have to move yourself. I have a window and I can put a camera on it. How was the Boarding? I think it was a bit difficault on my last flight. Here they had two different gates. One gate just for the Business Class. The other one was exclusivly for Economy guests and it went fast. Although we had some Problems. We had to give them some Information, so the Boarding took a bit more time. But normally it is no Problem. On board you are welcomed very friendly. Dominik and me are happy. I prefere this seat than Air Zealands. It is wider. It is more comfortable and the cabin isn’t so dark and it is relaxter. You get a welcome Drink. You can choose between water, different Juices or a Prosecco. When youcome in, there are some Things at your seat. A bag with the cover. It is cool. There is a cushion, which is comfortable and printed with the Airlines logo. and some magazines and a big bottle of water. The menu is here too. I’ll Show you the different Options during the flight but there are many Options to choose Food. Because it is a haul-day-flight, they don’t offer a breakfast. Luckily in my eyes. I have expected that it might be a quick Boarding and I was Right. 10 minutes before the official Departure time the Boarding is completed. Very interesting. Have you heard it? The choice iss good. I’m keen to know how it tastes and I can order on demand. It is like Ethihad. Air Serbia was inspirated by them. Air Serbia is 49 % a member of Ethihad. The managment is the same. 5 years after the assumption it should be over. But still now here are a lot of Things like Ethihad. And it will be like that in the following years too. Hopefully the meals are from Ethihad too, because we flew that Airline and we are very satisfied with them. This is the monitore from Air Serbia. This Aircraft is from Jet Airways. Air Serbia bought this Aircraft or took it over. This here is the configuration which you can find at Jet Airways too. But here are just 8 movies. And 2 of them are just in English or Russian available. That is a Problem on a 10 h flight. But probably it is because this is the only airplane with an Entertainment System in the fleet of Air Serbia. In their A319 isn’t anything. I think this is the reason why it is so “small”. I found a movie, which is called “Red Sparrow” The monitore isn’t a Touchscreen monitore. I have to do evrything with this Controller on my left. With the Controller I can do the same Things like normally too. I can turn the light on/off, I can call a flight attendant, I can swipe through the menu and I can use it as a phone if I want that. I use my credit Card here, but it doesn’t work. Probably it was possible some years ago, but today noone would use that function. I press the button, when I want to move the seat into a flat bed. I have to hold on Pressing it all the time. And then Yes, then I’m in the lying Position. And I think that this seat is longer than other Business Class products. I’ll Show you the exact data on the side as Always. The bed is very soft, because it is leather. And it is Long and wide enough for me. I havent expected it. It’s definetly better than Air New Zealand. I’m too heavy. I have to move to put it in the normal Position. While I’ve showed you this seat, I’ve received a prosseco, because Air Serbia doesn’toffer any champagne. And a bowl with warm and different nuts. For example almonds, Cashew nuts and pistachios are in it. At the beginning of the Video, I’ve already explained that this flight with Air Serbia was an error fare. For the trip from Zurich over Belgrad to NYC I had to pay only 350€. I’ve booked this flight with Expedia. Those People, who have booked directly with the Airline, can’t fly because it is cancelled. We are lucky.It isn’t cancelled on Expedia. We can fly without any Problems and we get some miles too. For this flight we can get them for Ethihad, where we already have some. Probably we`ll fly the Ethihad Appartment in the next time from NYC to Abu Dahbi. And when we won’t have enough miles, we can use our Amex Platinum credit Card. Because we get there miles for every pay, important Points, the American Exprerss Rewards Points. We can transform them to different Airlines Programms, for example: to Etihad. Or to KLM, Skyteam, and Payback. Payback is, Maybe you know it from our Videos, good to transform it 1:1 to Miles&More. That is the circle. So we can transform all our Points to many different Airlines. And on that way we get more Etihad miles. Very important for you! You can watch our Travel Hacks. There we explain everything About this Topic: What is a Status?, What is a fast way to get miles?, Which deals are there? And so on… Everything on our Webside. Click on the “I” and check it out! Next to the Controller on my left is the socket. And the Usb port. To charge my electronic devices. Especially my Smartphone Needs that. Unfortunatey the USB-port doesn’t work. My Smartphone can’t charge and Dominik’s either. That is nasty! ON my left are the headphones in the tray. The storage Trays aren’t bad in my eyes. In the back of the cabin, I have a big area, where I can depose Things. Here, but everybody has that, is another area. On my left is a big compartement. I put a lot of stuff inside, Smartphone, my headhones and my camera. Under the Ottoman, where I lay my feet on, is a small area, but there is not enough space for many Things. And I’ve an Overhead bin. These are Air Serbias headphones. I’ll try them, but I don’t think that thy’re Noise cancelling. But they are connexcted so I beliee that they are Noise Reducing. So they reduce the sounds from the cabin etc. A bit, but not completely. But htey are comfortable. I like that aspect. Oh, it isn’t a touch-screen monitor. I Forget that Always. A Thing, that isn’t easy at this seat is the table, which is here. It is hidden so you have to pull, which is very hard. Yes, Now it is Ready to use. I can move the table like that And when I press this button, I’m able to fold it down like that. And like tat I casn leave my seat with a meal on my table. Maybe you have recognized it. Until now, I haven’t get an Amenity Kit. And they don’t offer slipper. That means for me, going on Toilette with my normal shoes, because I can see it there The stains on the Ground. It is dangerous, so I would wear any slippers or shoes when you leave your seat. And what is here in the bathroom? Here are different Amenities, Hand Lotion, Soap, air conditioner and a disinfector. And a cream is here too. And the normal Things like towels, water and the Toilette. I haven’t expected to get such a high stansard on board of Ai Serbia. He Comes and serves absolutly acuratly Everything is on it’s place. From the porcelan salt/pepper cellar to the cutlery. It is amazing. Here is Fresh butter. Balsamico and an oil dresing. I think that all this is because of the Impact by Ethihad. The etiquette is very important. A norm, which you find on board of Ethihad. Ah, this is the Serbian Misek. You might know it from Ethihad or other Arabian Airlines. In the Gulf states you get many different small plates, but here it is more like assorted saussages with cheese. But it is okay. Tasty! They know how to dela with cheese and saussages. But this bread is a bit watery, like it is sometimes in the air. The best buns come still from Germany. Unbelieveable. The Serbian Service and their friendliness. In part their meals are very good too. Let’s check the main dish. I’m even more flashed than before. It is impossible, what Air Serbia offers here. I took the chicken with mashed potatoes and carrots and a beetroot salad. With the vegetables and a dark pepper Sauce it Looks very very good. I’m keen to try, wether it tastes as good as it Looks like. Dominik takes some photos, because he took the same decision like me. Again mashed potatoes and I love it. It is very tatsy, not dry and tough. The chicken is perfect and on Point. And itz is seasoned very well. A lot of pepper, but that is normal. Finally I got a big and tasty chocolate cake. A perfect finnish for this meal, which was a very quick meal. I prefer it, I don’t like to eat for such a Long time, but when I have the time and when I’m hungry, I have time to have a Long meal. Now I’ll Sleep a bit, because we fly round About 10h.And then we arrive in the evening in New York. It is the perfect Arrival time. You have seen the main dish and the Dessert and when you expect nothing from Air Serbia in their only A330. In their only Long-haul Aircraft. And when you get something so tasty like today, I must be flashed. I thought that you can expect it from Ethihad, but that I receive such a tasty meal from Air Serbia is somethuing , that I hadn’t expected before. Especially the Dine on the demand and a nice and beautifaul tablet. WOW! Please wriote your opinion in the comments. We are keen to know what you are thinking About this Airline, because it was very very tasty! Just now I have told you that here is no Amenity Kit. Normally not, but when you ask you can be lucky, that there is still one. I got one, because I’ve asked politely. But obviously, they don’t distribute them in the cabin. And I can’t take rthe menu-card with me, because they are counted. So I must take a photo. And this Card is for the return flight too, so they Need it. I can’t take it home. So, the meals are finnished. I’m very sated and satisfied. We will see us for the next meal or in NYC. A short Snack, I slept and i watched some movies. I have to stop my movie. Besides to the normal dine-on-demands menu there is a dine anytime-menu, that you can order the whole flight. I coulöd choose between something sweet, this chicken with Paprika or Cookies. Or fruits too. I can order it all the time, probably the other menu too. So I believe that I could order a main dish from the normal menu. But I don’t Need that now. But what I can say is that the Service is very good. You just have to ask wether you can ahve something and you get it directly. We have still 4 h and 50 min. until we’ll arrive in New York. Enough time to enjoy. Here at my place is a volume of 72,7 DBA. I make this tets sometimes to find out which Aircraft is most quiet one. I’m keen to know what volume will be in A350 or the Dreamliner. As I said the A330-200 from Air Serbia has this worth. Just before Landing a short resume : I’m really I’m fascinated what Air Serbia offers on this flight. Whern you expect Nothing, as I’ve already said, then you are even more surprised of a good product, like here on board of Air Serbia. The Service was excellent. I think that tgey’ve learned a lot from Ethihad. I think so. And the meals were very good. I recommend you to fly with their only A330 to New York. It is worth to try it. Yes, this was our flight with Air Serbia in the A330-200. As Dominik has already said, we haven’t expected a lot. And we were so surprised. It was an amazong flight. Very tasty Food, although I think it is odd, that they don’t offer an Amenity Kit. Only on demand. No slipper too. But a great seat And a great meal. I say thank you for watcghing this Video. Do you have Questions, suggestions or have you ever used this Airline? Do you know what an Error fare is? When not, check our webside! And we’ll see us in my next Video. Bye!
