It has now been over a year I took this flight and I have sooo many reports to do that I should get back to work !
After a couple of days in Paris to celebrate my friends wedding, it was time to head back to Tahiti via Moscow, Seoul and Narita.
I had used my miles for this trip and wanted to try new airlines so I flew to Paris on Alitalia and the return journey was going to be on Aeroflot.
I had ordered a chauffeurprivé.com car on their website and the driver was here on time to drive me to Roissy CDG.
I was dropped off in front of terminal 2C and went to check in. The counters weren't too crowded and I was taken care of in no time.
I then went to the security check point, it went quickly even though Aeroflot Business Class don't have access to Acces N°1.
ADP did a good job with the new face of terminal 2AC
I get a little bit confused or misunderstood the check-in agent and go to the Emirates lounge…
The kind Emirates agent tells me that I must go back downstairs to the Paris Lounge.
The welcoming party is not very warm. 2 women are here but are more interested by their own gossip than the customers.
I make my way in and settle for a window seat.
Here is what is on offer in the lounge.
Here is my selection
I went on to check where my plane was.
There it is !
Shortly before departure time, I left the lounge and waited by the gate, as soon as they invited Sky Priority customers, I boarded the plane.

In my seat the the welcome kit.
We continue our taxiing towards the runway, here's some spotting.

Air France maintenance area with airplanes resting.
Fedex MD11 are also resting before their next trip.
We continue to climb towards our cruising altitude
The purser starts the service by handing out menus and wine list and will come back to take the orders.
While I wait for the drink and meal service, I get acquainted with the seat pocket contents and the amenity kit.
Yes there is a lot !!!
The crew then hands out portable TV displays with a selection of movies.
The purser then starts to take orders.
Smooth flight so far.
I end up using my seat pocket as a screen holder
After the meal orders were taken, we are offered an oshibori
Sky is getting cloudier
The purser sets the table with a white linen and then serve everyone the drinks they had ordered. I tried an Aeroflot cocktail, a mix of white wine and sprite with a slice of lemon. The drinks are served with nuts.
The crew than brings each tray, one by one.
The caesar salad was good and the lamb with couscous was also excellent !
After I had finished my main course, the purser took my tray away and came back with dessert and coffee.
The chocolate offered with dessert.
Sky is a little clearer here !
After my tray is cleared, I requested a Bailey's on ice.
Flight goes on smootly
Before we arrive, the purser comes around and hands out gifts to each Business Class passenger. A box of tea.
Not before long, we start our descent towards Moscow Sheremetievo Airport
We land on time in Moscow and taxi towards our gate.
We reach our gate and we can disembark. I have to get to my new gate to Seoul but I have some time to visit the lounge.
Next report is the Moscow-Seoul flight.
Icare Lounge - 1
Paris - CDG
Moscow - SVO
First time on Aeroflot and it was such a pleasant surprise ! Proper Business Class seats, food was good, nothing exceptional but good, service was so good that I wrote a lettre and handed it over to the purser who was really pleased to see that her work was recognized. Aeroflot has a solid product in Business Class and has nothing to be ashamed of.
