Air Astana 151
Astana, Kazakstan (TSE) to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan (FRU)
Embraer 190 - Business Class
After 36 hours exploring the madness of Astana and the massive development of the city, I was ready for my flight to Kyrgyzstan. I had prebooked a taxi for 6 AM but the taxi was a no-show, after waiting for close to 30 minutes, I started walking towards another hotel and was able to get them to call me a taxi.
I barely made it to the check-in desk, but was still able to get my boarding pass and have a few spare minutes to explore the lounge.
Self service buffet at 7 AM
Various beverages including some large water bottles
I really wish that would have been my flight...
Air Astana Business Class
This flight departed from a bus-gate and our bus was packed like sardines, but once I was seated I discovered that I was the only passenger in Business Class. This has happened three times in the past, once in TAM First Class from Sao Paulo to New York and another time on an Aegean flight from Athens to Barcelona.
Pretty unremarkable omelette as the only breakfast choice
Champagne as my in-flight drink!
