Here is a Flight Report part from a long journey. I am on a Papeete-Billund via Los Angeles and Amsterdam. I have tons of pictures and here are the ones about the Papeete-Los Angeles AF 673.
The night before I checked-in online and went to check in the next day at Tahiti Faa'a Airport 2 hours before the flight. There weren't much people when I got there. Check-in was separated in different lanes, La Première and Elite Plus, Business, e-service and Voyageur.
After I was done with checking-in my bags and received my boarding card as well as my invitation to the Tahiti Airport lounge where ALL airlines serving Papeete go to, I went through immigration and security. The lounge was on the upper level just above the boarding area. Here are a few pictures about that part of the airport and the lounge.
Air Tahiti Nui and Air France are awaiting their departure respectively to Auckland and Los Angeles.
At 6h45 we are invited to board the Boeing 777-200ER, next stop Los Angeles.
The first row offers all the legroom you may need !
Welcome on Board !
The doors are closed, the stairs are pulled away and our Boeing will start its run and its very powerful take-off towards Los Angeles. The aerial views of the polynesian atolls are magnificent ! Who needs IFE with a view like this ?!
Screen is out, let's see where we are now !
It is now time for a drink and the female cabin crew are now wearing beautiful and colorful tahitian dresses. We are offered drinks, a canapé and nibbles as well as a Tiare flower, the French Polynesia national flower.
After the drinks, the meal is following. The starter is a Lamb and vegetable mille-feuille, tomato and mozzarella, grilled mahi-mahi, carrot and cauliflower mousse.
For the main I chose the vegetable lasagna and polenta with a red bellpepper coulis. Cheese is served at the same time. I am enjoying a glass of white wine, from the Languedoc region, Blanc Limoux Terroir de Haute Vallée 2007 Cave Sieur D'Arques.
Dessert trio and tea.
After the meal I reclined my seat and started to watch a movie and fell asleep. It is the screams of a baby that will pull me out of my sleep every hour. I am still wondering how that baby didn't lose his voice after screaming like this during the whole flight.
1 hour and 45 minutes before our arrival in Los Angeles the cabin crew is serving a snack. Smoked tuna and aubergine caviar canape, black olive tapenade and goat cheese canapé, mini opera cake, fresh fruit, fromage frais. Tea and a glass of Pepsi Max for drinks.
L'arrivée sur Los Angeles est imminente ! Our arrival in Los Angeles is imminent !
And we are in Los Angeles !
Papeete - PPT
Los Angeles - LAX
An excellent flight with Air France with its Tahiti base cabin crew. Tahiti crew are by far the best !
