Why in English? Because I was there to study it, so it's a good idea to practice it writing this report. To join Dublin, there are four Airlines: Aer Lingus (CDG), Cityjet (CDG), Transavia (ORY) and Ryanair (BVA). Transavia was the cheapest, but the outbound flight land at 19h20, too late. But it's ok for the return flight. Ryanair was also a good option, but Beauvais Airport is very far from Paris. Aer Lingus was less expensive than Cityjet, with five daily flights.
To join CDG Airport, I chose the Roissybus, a bus between Opera and CDG Airport. The ticket costs 11€, but it's free during holidays for students with the Navigo Imagine R Card.
Only 30 minutes after, I was at Terminal 1. Traffic was very good this Sunday morning on the motorway.
The bus stop was just near the Aer Lingus check in.
At Paris, there is no Aer Lingus staff but it's Swissport's staff.
My baggage weighed 21.1 kg and no 20.0kg, so I had to pay 10€!! For just 1 kg is unacceptable. Aer Lingus is a low cost company, like Ryanair… But their prices are not low cost!! I was very angry.
Now, I have to go to the Border Police and the PIF. CDG 1 is a very old terminal, with six different boarding zones.
There was not any queue at the Border Police
Few luxury shops
And the access to my boarding zone.
This boarding zone is comfortable, but there is not any shop.
Fortunately, I was just in front of the two runways of CDG. Spotting time!

Boarding started on time. My A320, EI-DEF, 8 years old.
The crew was very unfriendly. Nobody was here to welcome the passengers, they were talking in the galley. I said Hello to the CCP, and nobody answered me! My seat, the 26F.
B737-300 Europe Airpost, a charter flight.
1h20 of flight, and an arrival early said the captain.

And take off at 10h25.
Flight was full and also very cloudy
A last view of France before crossing the Channel
The cabin, with a good pitch.
In Aer Lingus Flight's, there is no catering. You have to pay everything, like Ryanair or Easyjet which are low cost companies. But Aer Lingus doesn't say that she is a low-cost airline! Furthermore, the cabin crew was terrible. No smile, there were in the aircraft just to sell BOB and Duty Free.
We are now flying above the UK
Descent started at 11h21. Porthmadog in the UK
And landing at 10h46
B737-800 Blue Air
A320 Aer Lingus
A330-200 Aer Lingus
We arrived at 11h01, 4 minutes early. Nobody was here to say Goodbye at the passengers!
The queue was very short at the border police, but it took ten minutes for the baggage claim.
To go to Dublin, I took the bus 747 for 6€ and 30 minutes. Comfort was very good with a free wifi connection.
And finally I took the DART at Connolly Station to Bray, 25 km at the South of Dublin.
Thank you for reading this FR and I hope that my English was easy to understand!
Paris - CDG
Dublin - DUB
This Aer Lingus' flight was very bad. Cabin was ok and flight was on time. But the crew was very bad, there weren't any newspaper or magazine, and the catering was expensive. Aer Lingus is a low-cost airline, with a bad staff. I don't recommend Aer Lingus. Their value for money is too bad! Next time, I will take Cityjet for a similar price but a best service.
Thank you for reading this FR!
