After a frankly exciting two-and-a-half weeks in Italy, it's finally time to head home. The flight is a caodeshare between KLM-Air France and Alitalia. Immigration at Fiumicino was swift and efficient with no hitches and once through, I headed to McDonalds to grab a bite before the flight.

Seated in the standard economy or 'Classica' seat. I'm roughly 6ft tall and I found the legroom to be decent.

The transition to the second leg of my journey was smooth. Immigration for international departures were very quiet and took no time at all to clear. The terminal seemed new and was very beautiful. Picked up a bottle of Prosecco at Duty-Free before heading to the gate. Charles du Gaulle has really improved from my previous visit almost a decade ago.

    Thanks for continuing this series with us!

    I really like FCO's Concourse B, the wood floors are nice and the bathrooms are some of the best I've seen recently.

    Jeep special livery? That's very random for AZ! It's interesting that this is the second report aboard an AZ A321 where the mini IFEs have been removed.

    Very standard European flight. I felt the AZ seats were comfortable, but they were very old and looked to be in bad condition.

    Nice AF A318 spotting at CDG!

    I would ask you why you rated the AZ FAs so poorly, but I already know the answer to that question :)
