Welcome aboard this BAe 146 – Avro 100, a four-engine regional jet. You won’t see too many of them flying around in North America these days (North Cariboo Air of Canada has three) but they are mainstays in the Brussels Air and Swiss regional fleets. That’s where I typically manage to find myself on one of the type.
In this case it was a quick hop from Geneva up to London‘s City Airport, operated by Swiss on HB-IXX, a 19 year old frame. Seating inside is 2-3 throughout with the movable curtain to separate “business class” from economy. Not really much of anything special going on inside except for the part where it is a 4-engine regional jet. There are not many of those flying around these days.
There was a meal/snack service and the flight attendants handed out the traditional Swiss chocolate bars at the end of the flight. I was so exhausted from the JFK-GVA flight the night before that I slept through all of that and woke up upon arrival in London, ready to start my day.
