It was a short hop from Malaga to Madrid where i had to transfer to Amsterdam. So we stayed low and i had a good view on the inland of Spain from the air.

I had to move from one arrival/departure hall to the other. Carmen had warned me that transferring through Barajas could be hell / taking a long time. The devil must have taken a day off then since i had no problems at all. In less then 15 minutes i had been to the toilets (hate going inside a plane) and been driven in the electric train from T4S to T4. So that left me with more then 2,5 hrs to spare.
Lucky for me there was a Starbucks with sofa seats. The departure halls are completly renovated but decent seating was forgotten (as ever).

One thing i dont like on spanish airports is that they are very late with announcing which gate you are going to use. Nothing untill it is actually boarding time, i kept checking the screens. I noticed that on Malaga but also here.
