Photo review of WDL Aviation flight from Bâle to Paris in Economy

Welcome back dear English FR Readers :)

This bunch of flights will take you from BSL to AMM and back, here the itinerary:

  1. Basle - Paris CDG AF / Y ops by WDL, BAe146-200: here you are.
  2. Paris CDG - Amman AF / Y, A320: soon
  3. Amman - Paris CDG AF/ J, A320: soon also
  4. Paris CDG - Basle AF / Y, ATR72, won't be published

This trip report will cover the connecting flight to CDG to reach the Amman flight for my annual Jordan holidays. I was not supposed to make a report on that flight but the ATR ops by Airlinair for AF that was scheduled to make the flight was once again out of order. AF sent a WDL BAe 146-200 ferry from Germany early in the morning for our ride to Paris.

Boarding was on time without the need of a Sky Priority lane, as we were around 30 people aboard.

The crew was speaking a perfect french, and was very nice and attentive.

The plane begins to show its age, but the seats are comfortable and have a good recline. The crew was very nice.
We have not been offered newspapers though.
Snack was ok.
The toilets at 2G were disgusting. Very long bus ride from G to E.
