I apologize for some pics i couldn't turn them over that i took with my phone in upright position.
I don't know the reason.
I have decided to make it in english contrary to my previous ones.
Indeed, i noticed that all Paris CDG->Amsterdam were reported in french on the website. Probably because this journey is the "shuttle" between the hubs of AF-KLM group.
It's time to change that.
To introduce myself i would say that i'm a simple traveler. I always travel by myself and love to discover the world.
Today i'm going to Romania. I don't know yet this country and thought that it would be interesting to see how they live, how are people and cities.
Why have i chosen KLM?
I checked different websites and it sounded to be the most logical choice.
I had different options:
1. Air France-> direct flights exist but too expensive the price was prohibitive.
2. TAROM-> same reason than Air France.
3. WIZZ AIR-> direct flights as well prices were lower but the departure was too early. Moreover this airline takes off from Beauvais airport. This is a low cost airport located at 80 kms (50 miles) from Paris.
4. Alitalia->better price but the transfer would have lasted 6 hours in Rome FCO.
5. Lufthansa-> good price as well with transfer in Frankfurt.
6. KLM -> same price than Lufhtansa transfer of 3 hours in Amsterdam.
Being a skyteam member i gave priority to KLM. This airline never really disappointed me.
My trip started out in Opera in the centre of Paris where i took the Roissy Bus. This bus is a direct one to CDG airport which serves each terminal.
Saturday by early morning it's for me the best option (as public transport).
Arrival at CDG airport Terminal 2F 40 mins later. This is the hub of Air France and it skyteam partners.
All it schengen flights take off from here.
Not a lot of people today landside.
I will use the Skypriority's counter and will be alone.
Want to recharge your phone?
The terminal is quite modern. The corridor that you see at right leads to the other part of the terminal.
The wide windows allow to spot a lot.
The terminal is getting fuller and fuller.
Time to reach the lounge.
The lounge is quiet i think that everybody is waking up and don't want to talk a lot :p.
Catering is very correct.
Just one the coffee machines is out of order. As long as the lounge is not full no problem!
International press. The offer could be better.
Rather than the french press is well-stocked.
The lounge is divided in 2 part one in the 1st floor (where is the entrance) the other one in the ground floor.
Let's go downstairs!
View from the ground floor.
As often i ask for toothpaste to brush my teeth after my breakfast and as often i will get the entire case.
It's time to go. let's go back to the terminal which is totally full now.

Hi brother see you in Amsterdam!
Joining the runway.
The Holland Herald of the month.
Very correct catering for barely a hour of flight.
The sandwich is very simple. A piece of cheese with a kind of mustard.
Amsterdam we're coming!
Here is the cargo terminal.
While joining the terminal we meet the KLM's american best friend.
Last pics of our bird!
I know that some of you like licence plates.
Spotting before to pass the border (3 hours before my next flight, i have plenty of time).
B 747 are leaving.
My next flight is waiting for me in the concourse D, i'm in the C. Here we go!
Air France Lounge, 2F - F1
Paris - CDG
Amsterdam - AMS
Overall a good flight without surprise.
We were on time.
The AF lounge is good for a schengen lounge more international press and more beverages would be welcome.
I don't find it spotter friendly but it's more due to the terminal configuration.
KLM's crew was polited without being wonderful either.
