Hello and welcome to my short report of an Air France flight from Biarritz to Paris (ORY). After two nice and rather warm weeks in Biarritz with a lot of bathing in the (fairly warm) Atlantic, I now had to return to Vienna. This is the third segment in a series of 4 flights from Vienna to Biarritz and back.

I arrived at Biarritz Airport by car at 5:45. The Airport is accessible either by bus or by car. Short-term parking is fairly cheap, the first 20 minutes are free of charge.
When I entered the terminal, everything was still closed.
At 6 o'clock, two check-in counters as well as one shop opened, so I checked in my baggage.
My flight on the FIDS.
After passing security, where i was chosen for a short random check, I went directly to gate 5. Even though the terminal is rather small there were a lot of seeting spaces available.
Aircraft: A319-100 Age: about 17 years Registration: F-GRHI Airline: Air France Flight Number: AF7481 Seat: 10B Load: about 70%
At 6:45, boarding started on time. I was among the first to board the aircraft.
My seat, 10B. This seat is a middle seat in an emergency exit row, which I had pre-booked during the online check-in process for 10€.
Of course, large legroom (I am 1.65m/5.4feet).
At 7:00, boarding was completed, and, following the push-back, a manual safety demonstration was performed by the crew.
After taking off at 7:19, the seatbelt-sign was turned of at 7:35 and the crew started with the meal service.
Available to drink was a limited offer of beverages, consisting of a choice of either coffee, tea, orange juice or water. I chose black tea. Parallel to drinks a mini cake with muesli and apricot was served.
After the meal I visited the rear lavatory.
At 7:58, descend was started and we landed smoothly at 8:24, 11 minutes before schedule.
We arrived at our parking position in Orly Ouest at 8:32 and I disembarked the aircraft.
Paris Orly Airport
My baggage arrived at band 4. After claiming it I proceeded to the "le bus direct" line 3, which brought me to Charles de Gaulle Terminal 2F, were my connecting flight to Vienna departed.
This series is continued in my next report. Than you for reading!
