Back from Aéroville , by free shuttle , them from Roissy Pole ,to terminal 2F with the CDGval
The check-in is in another sector , not the same as Schengen flights with their awful self-check-in and drop-off luggage
As i was pretty happy i tried my chance for an upgrade., 300€ to premium economy and 600€ for business , so not for today
Need to pass the security , one thing in terminal 2 , the security checkpoints seems to be common for all flights from terminal 2 , including schengen flights
At noon it was empty so no stress today
Next steep , immigration , i had a nice chat with one of the policeman , because he saw the cover of my passport and we started to talk about Ukraine (his wife is ukrainian)
Endless walking through this terminal , i thought i was about to reach BVA in the end
And finally gate L26, i enjoyed the PS4 a bit then i needed to charge my smartphone
After playing Naruto on PlayStation , a guy seated in front of me was watching this ! Such a coincidence
Our bird for today
Time for boarding , today is such a mess !
New cabins B&B in longhaul version , first business , then premium economy , and economy
Waiting further , seems like we will be late
Today's docs !
The AF mag of November , talks about the country of Thomas Sankara
And i was right , as the captain announced 15 minutes delay
Few minutes later , ''this is your captain speaking , we have an issue with ******** our technician is on the way to fix it and we should leave soon''
If possible , iam willing to sacrifice myself and be rerouted to AUH
Oh , you know now where i keep my money
One hour later , aircraft starts to move , but stops again , same issue , so we need to come back to gate
I don't know the rest of the story , cause i started to sleep , was woken by the plane's engine just before take-off around 16.20
taxing and takeoff , then we turned to fly southeast
Last contact with Roissy Charles de Gaulle
I was worried about my seat , if it would be comfortable or not , especially the pitch , so i get a seat in emergency exit for free at online checkin , i even bring my pyjama under my jean cause i know it can get very cold . But as our plane is almost empty today , i decided to seat somewhere else
A huge difference compared to the configuration of the 777-300's flying to the west-indies , there are so many business class seats , and don't even think about LaPremiere . So if AF wants they can make the same plane very comfortable and nice , instead of these shoe boxes used to fly between orly and Caribbean islands
The eco seats are in the middle and rear of the aircraft so you can't escape from the noise of engines
After 39072233 plans , with layovers in prg, fco , jed/ruh, doh or svo , i choose KLM to AUH because it's my final destination , and they also placed a dreamliner on this route
The only issue is the price from Warsaw , so i checked from Berlin TXL and found really cheap tickets
I also have some miles on my account so i decided to use them in order to enjoy the promo awards
At the time i booked my flights ,only DXB was available … but one month after AUH came back in the promos (sick)
One hour later the service started , i pre ordered a meal , Menu Tradition , and it was delicious . Usually i dont like BoB or options like this cause airlines just buy items available in supermarket and sell it 3 times the normal prices but these menus from AirFrance are awesome i recommend you to try if possible
Unfortunately , there was not enough duck and i could order only one.
Get dark while flying over Hungary
This flightpath is just amazing , i love it ! Since my first flights back in 2008 i always wanted to know where we are exactly and now my wish has been granted
My next report is located in this map . Can you guess where will i fly next ???
Finished to play with IFE and i switched to flat mode for the last 3 hours
We started our descent after we passed Iran , seems that traffic is fery low at that time of the night
Landing delayed by 2 hours , 10 minutes of taxing and we arrived at gate C59
KL , LX , TK , PK , and so on…. Yes, we are in Dubai
Exit through the business class , judging by the mess it was half empty today , so why AF didn't offered an upgrade for 300euros instead of 600 ???
La Premiere , tonight was full
Time to leave the aircraft and start our pilgrim , wait for the people mover , then walk again to reach immigration
Almost nobody tonight , people are comin by waves
Welcome to mogoyland !
It was long journey , i had to wait 2 hours to get a stupid stamp but finally i'am in the United Arab Emirates
Next things to do : Etisalat + Uber , so no pixs anymore
The end …. or not !!
Paris - CDG
Dubai - DXB
AF = the best flight i had with AF CDG = only issue is the distance DXB = huge , but empty at this time of the night
