Previously on FR, I left you here for the next flight to Tokyo NRT. The boarding gate is gate M43.
A long walk is required from terminal 2F to reach borders. A fountain is appreciated for the long marathon…
I arrived just before it got crowded.
Clear to leave France, let's go to gates M. I have to take the blue shuttle which is one floor below.
Since I'm only transiting, I avoid extra security controls, like this one. It's already Christmas inside the Terminal.
Because I still have euros not converted in yens, I try to stop by the exchange desk but because of a large queue, I decide to wait until I'm in Tokyo for trading. The AF lounge before reaching the boarding gate.
Today's aircraft is F-GZNJ.
His neighbour, F-GSQI, Air "France" One.
BP on my smartphone.
Pre-boarding Sky Priority & Business. Boarding will start with a 30 minute delay, with no explanation.
As mentionned earlier, old cabin in all classes.
Quick shot of GE90 gauche.
While we're still boarding, I ask the cabin crew if it's possible to upgrade in Premium Eco for the remaining vacant seat but the crew directly answers no. So I will be forced to keep my current seat… The AF Magazine and the safety card…
The Entertainement, old school and which doesn't react much with the finger.
The headphone, a mask and two refresh towels are given. The headphone is a bad one, I'll use mine.
Pushback with a 40 minute delay. Safety video starts.
Soon after take-off, we're crossing a zone of turbulences.
Once the seatbelt signal is off, the crew is preparing the meal. They will do an excellent job during the flight. My selection:
I start watching a movie but will be often interrupted by announcements, either for safety or duty-free.
… or how to eat with chopsticks.
The meal is served after we reached Stockholm, Sweden.
No menus onboard. The crew announced the meals instead in French, English and Japanese. Between French chicken and Japanese beef, I picked the Japanese one with a miso soup. Kanpai!
Japan is known as one of the safest countries in the world, AF still gives plastic cutlery while LH or EK are giving metal cutlery for the same destination…
It was very good. However the cake was very industrial…
The meal almost done, 2nd zone of turbulences.
Once we're out, I'm doing a little walk and I stop by the toilets, clean during the flight.
Back to my seat, I try to go to sleep. The lights will be switched off later.
3rd zone of turbulences during my sleep. 4th after I'm up. The mood-lightning
Above all, passengers and crews's safety.
Around 45 minutes before landing, the crew is giving Japan's immigration files. Approach in zigzag.
We're parking next to KL. Borders will be long to cross but I'll pick up my suitcase quickly enough. And by opening the AF application on my smartphone, I received a missing baggage notification while my baggage is just next to me. I didn't understand but it doesn't give a good impression about Air France. Quick exit where I found my group and outside view of Narita Airport.
And our flight's play-back to conclude this FR.
Thank you for reading me. I hope you enjoyed it. If so, don't hesitate to put a like and/or a comment. The return flight with Emirates is coming soon…
Paris - CDG
Tokyo - NRT
A good flight despite the turbulence zones we met and the old cabin for a such a prestigious road like Tokyo.
If the 77W is a beautiful aircraft, it remains quite noisy. Which is an important disadvantage.
The crew did an excellent work. Nothing special to mention...
Catering was good although the omelette was heavy on my stomach.
CDG: Once we know it, Transit can be very difficult.
NRT: A bit long to cross the immigration but easy to access once you got through.
