Hello everyone

Welcome to a flight report from Abu Dhabi to Paris, I was expecting to fly a Boeing 777-300ER and I booked a very good seat, but at the last minute I discovered that it changed to an Airbus A340-600, but fortunately they still gave me a good seat and an excellent window view with the 2 engines of the wing. Also, this is my first FR I wrote so do not expect quality photos because I am mostly focused on recording the flight from taking photos, so please do not judge if my photo isn't clear enough. I will also be including a french version of this Flight Report, you can find it in this link below: http://flight-report.com/fr/report/18042/Etihad-Airways-EY31-Abu-Dhabi-AUH-Paris-CDG

Arrived to the airport 2 hours and half before the flight, time to Check-in my luggage in the Etihad Airways Business Class Check-in counters.
