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 !

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.

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.
