I am starting a new series today called IF Tripreports! I will put a poll at the bottom of the message.
Merquis Airways Flight 02
Before I get started, I just want to mention that Merquis Airways is not real. It is an IF based airline in the state of texas.
Hello, and welcome to the first ever IF TripReport! Today, The flight will be aboard a Cessna Citation X owned by Merquis Airways, a start-up airline in the state of Texas. Our Route will be from Dallas Fort-Worth to Lubbock, Texas. So let’s get started!
At approximately 4:20 CST we boarded the aircraft, 10 minutes before schedule. At about 4:35 we started push and start, which was about 5 minutes ahead of schedule.
After taxing for a little while we finally reached the runway. With the traffic, we were pushed back to a departure time of about 4:57, which was only a couple of minutes behind schedule. Finally we were on the RWY
After that we started our takeoff role. Kudos to the pilot for the very nice takeoff!
After that we reached our crusing alltidude of 24,000 Ft. When we reached cruising alltitude the FA started passing out drinks and snacks. We were able to take off our seatbelts, so I decided to go to the lavatories. While is was in there though, we were hit with rough headwinds that knocked me off my feet! Luckily I was able to get to my seat.
We then started our descent into Lubbock. Since we were at about 24,000, we didn’t have to start it as early. When we got to about 9,000 Ft, we started to get some pretty heavy tailwinds again. Not as bad as before though. We continued our descent to Lubbock, until about 5,000 Ft.
In short Final we were once again, hit with some nasty headwinds, which caused for a hard crosswind landing. We were then able to taxi to the terminal. After that the captain shut down the engines, and portable air stairs were moved into place. We then started our walk to the terminal. I was able to get this photo before entering the terminal.
Many Kudos to Merquis Airways for the wonderful service! I hope that I get to fly with them soon! Until next time!
