Happy to be back for another translation from the French pages to the English ones :)
The first two legs of the journey may not be that interesting but they are needed to have the whole picture.
So please stay with me for the intra-European part, the best is to come.
After a super smooth check in, the security was another story. Not that there were lots of people, only 4 in the queue, but none of them was a frequent traveler, even worse, far from that.
The first passenger had all its personal care items in a big purse. Everything needed to be emptied, checked and half of it had to be trashed as too heavy. Once he was done, his wife would do exactly the same. The third person did not better as on top of the care item, he had a bottle of coke in his hand bag…
And the last person in front of me had … two knifes. I had more than enough time but when you wait in line and you see this everything you just think, wtf …
I then headed to the lounge.
This travelator has since been removed:
The airport is pretty empty:
My flight is scheduled on time:
The entrance to the lounge:
Very warm welcome at the desk. The agents there are always super friendly.
Unfortunately the offer is being changed from breakfast to lunch meaning the buffets are half empty.
No more cheese for instance:
The salad bar is not set up yet:
Breakfast left over:

Gate 1 is actually at the opposite side of the airport and just in front of the security, meaning a full back tracking :)

Thanks for reading, the second part will be out soon!
Even if the cabin begins to show its age, I like the E-170/190, at least Air France's ones.
The crew was friendly and happy to do their job, the catering was appropriate.
Both airports were more than great and so was the lounge.
See you soon and thanks for reading!
