I have found pictures of a flight I did on airliner buried deep in my iPhone. I went to Lyon to check on my partner who had surgery at the La Croix Rousse hospital.
After I spent the day with him at the hospital I headed back to Lyon Saint Exupéry to catch my flight to Orly. I chose that flight because I wanted to spend a day with friends before heading to Los Angeles and Paris.
I had checked-in online the night before, no baggage and I went to the gate directly !
A few persons are awaiting for the flight, the crew hasn't arrived yet.
Nothing much to spot, particularly in the regional terminal.
We board on time, it is getting late and the weather is not really clement.
The ground staff is loading the baggage and freight on the ATR.
I am used to board ATR that are white, red and orange with a background of blue skies but what can you do…
It will the be F-GVZN which will bring me to Paris tonight. And where did this plane fly before joining the Airlinair fleet ? In Tahiti for Air Tahiti with the registration F-OHJU and it was called Vetearai !
We are greeted at the door by a young man, elegant and smiling, he directs me to my seat 15F.
The cabin of this ex-polynesian ATR.
The legroom, I am 6'2.
Everyone is on board, we are ready to go !
Our airplane is taxiing, we are on the runway and off we go to Orly !
After take off, the 2 cabin attendants start the service, nothing much but it is OK for a 1 hour flight really.
A Coke and a cookie for me !
The flight has gone by without a glitch, I read a few magazines on my tablet and I listen to the passengers in the row in front of me, they are going to Saint Denis de la Reunion tonight, I am thinking about the long flight that awaits them on board that COI 777-300ER.
Not too many pictures of the descent as the quality wasn't there, not easy to get pictures on your iPhone.
We arrive with a few minutes to spare, we park and we wait for the bus to pick us up.
Aurevoir F-GVZN !

Flight was on time, comfort was OK for a flight of this length, crew was smiling and was available. Snack was OK, I am not part of these people expecting caviar and lobster for a 1 hour flight.
