Going to snow sports in the USA is a better alternative than French Alps because of the flight time between Guadeloupe and Paris, the jetlag etc… Moreover, Breck is a beautiful ski area with many difficults spots.
AF's Caribbean network is composed of 2 A320 based in PTP Guadeloupe. They flight from PTP to MIA via PAP and from PTP to CAY via FDF. PAssengers from north to south and south to north have to make the correpsondance at PTP (and often change planes).
We arrived at Port-Au-Prince Toussaint Louverture airport at 6:50pm. We have to go in a special transit room, after been ID'd.

The stopover was suppsed to last over one hour but we spent only 30min on the airport. At 7:30, we board for the second time of the day on our plane, same seat. The plane is less full than the first part of the flight.
It's 7:50pm when we pushed-back, and it's dark outside. Sorry for the reflect!
Sunrise's Airbus will spend the night here and will go tomorrow morning to Havana.

TX and 3S go to Santo-Domingo in ATR42&72, and even up to Port-Au-Prince for TX (also in ATR). I think it's a long trip in ATR, and AF's 320 are better for this. TX operated the flight to northern caribbean in Embraer190, but this plane has been removed from their fleet. We continue our climb and we pass over Gonaïves, a city between Port-Au-Prince (capital city of Haïti) and Cap-Haïtien (the 2nd largest city).

Because of a break in a cold chain "i don't exactly know the words in english), the catering won't be served on this flight. We'll only have apero snacks.

Port-au-Prince - PAP
Miami - MIA
AF: Good flight, crew was nice. Airplane was equipped by USB outlets.
PAP: Hard to note Port-Au-Prince. Many efforts have been made since January 10th 2010 earthquake. it's a very poor country and the airport is one ouf their pride. they try to have an opening on the tourism. It works because there are flights between PAP and PTP, Paris, Atlanta, orlando, miami, fort lauderdale, nyc, and boston.
MIA: I don't like Miami airport. certainly it is practical, but there is often waiting at the plice because of south-america flights. The airport is not confortable (for have sleep many times inside). AC is to low, making the airport the Groenland. Nevertheless, MIA is well connected to Miami city center.
