Hop!

Last month I posted a quick update from Brive Airport Dordogne Valley. I mentioned at the time that we’d arrived for our flight so early, we were the only non-staff around.

Curiously, even as our departure time drew closer, the airport didn’t get much busier. In fact, at the boarding gate we learned that we’d be 2 of only 7 passengers on our flight to Paris.

Needless to say, check-in, security and boarding was a breeze!

Look closely and you’ll be able to count our 5 fellow passengers. Luckily for our pleasant flight attendant, we were all seated together, and service was over less than 5 minutes after if started.

When asked which treat I’d prefer of the 2 on offer, I wasn’t sure – so she gave me 1 of each: bruschetta flavoured crispy things and a decent slice of lemon loaf.

The flight itself was pleasant and uneventful, and I spent my time catching up on some reading.

Serious question though.. how does Hop! stay in business with essentially empty flights? Perhaps the return flight was packed, justifying our flight?

  1. HOP is subsidize by Air France which in turn gets from us the happy taxpayers!! I need to use often the airport at Rennes and is deserted some punctual flights and the rest empty like I am the only one walking thru the aisles! I guess they do a transportation service and get some help from visitors like you lol! cheers
