Hello, today I present to you my first FR in English. I am only 15 years old so there should be some mistakes ! I didn't use any translator, so please be lenient. If you find any mistakes, tell me :) This Flight Report was written in my native French : http://flight-report.com/fr/report-4349.html
I took this trip in order to improve my German. I paid for a package (flight + accommodation + lessons + activities). So, I don't have book this flight by myself. Luckily, it was a flight by Air France and I've a Flying Blue Card ! A few days before the departure, I called AF to register my card number.
One day before my flight, I received my Boarding Pass by text. I've a window seat, that's perfect !
3 hours before flight, a taxi picked me up at home.
Traffic being fluid at this hour of the day, we will spend about forty minutes to join CDG.
We arrive at Paris CDG Terminal 2F from which leave AF flights to Berlin.
In landside zone, there are seats with power sockets.
At 1.30 pm, I head to the meeting point fixed; in front of AF sales desks. At 1.45 pm, all my group arrived. We head into the check-in area 5. We already have our boarding pass. Begins a one hour wait before a Air France agent makes up the queue to passengers on flights departing before 3:40 p.m.
Once arrived at the check-in desk, the agent encounters a problem with a passenger. After about ten minutes, the problem is solved, he will go in Premium/Business.
We pass the security checkpoint around 3 pm, at the scheduled boarding time. We are through security after a few minutes. We arrive in the departure gate.
A queue is already formed in front of the F48 door. We board after a short wait. It is F-GTAM, an Airbus A321 of Air France from 2003. It is equipped with old cabins.
When we arrived, the cabin crew greeted us. We settled down in row 18, the old seats that I find more comfortable !
The pilot announced a flight time of 3.25 pm. We push back at 3.35 pm and we take off at 3.50 pm.
This flight is 100% full.
Half an hour after takeoff, a snack is served. Tomato juice and Schweppes tonic water with little cookies. I ask for a packet of salt, flight attendant said she will return at the end of the service.
Then I read the AF magazine where is located a big mistake.
A page talking about Transavia. In Egyptian destinations, next to Hurghada or Louxor, we can find MYKONOS !
We begin the descent at 4.40 pm and we landed in Berlin Tegel at 5.10 pm, at the scheduled time ! The touch-down was very violent. We disembark by bus.
We arrived at the baggage claim. The terminal is not recent, and isn't very nice :/ Our luggage arrivd first with priority luggage.
A taxi is waiting for us at the terminal exit. Terminal Exterior.
Departure by taxi.
Paris - CDG
Berlin - TXL
PUNCTUALITY : we left and arrived on time
COMFORT : that's ok, I prefer old seat !
CREW : good but I'm waiting for my other salt packet :)
MEAL : so classic in AF

The old seats are definitely more comfortable than the new ones but they are getting pretty old looking. Also, the legroom is better with the new thinner seats.
Old cabin is comfortable but the colours of the seat are horrible. Disembarking by bus in TXL seems to be usual.
