Most of the regional flights are arriving at CDG 2G, meaning you need to connect by bus to CDG 2E or F.
The yellow signs make the connection pretty clear.
The display wasn't correct as the shuttle was noted as arriving for at least 15' :)
While waiting, this is the AR8 I spotted on my last report:
Catering was being loaded:
After a good 15', the shuttle pulls in and we went to 2F. Here an AF A380:
My gate would be F33:
My plane didn't arrive yet and this UX is at our gate:
I really like the architecture of the building. While not convenient it is at least really nice:
After a friendly welcome, I've been advised to go downstairs, where is was less crowded. This is something I always do in 2F, usually downstairs is much better. The reason behind is quite strange : no lift was installed when the lounges were opened (both lounges in 2F have the same design) so usually people don't go down with their luggage.
This is the food offering:
There is also some gluten free bread
The cheese board is quite nice but the buffet is really lacking sweet items:
For a quick lunch it is more than adequate.
I am travelling with a friend today :)
My 738 landed on time from AMS:
I headed to the gate slightly before boarding time.
Boarding started on time with Business and SP customers called first:
We had to wait a few more minutes in order for the cleaning team to finish their duty:
Front view of the plane:
A smiley welcome at the door after and here is the usual KLM old 738 cabin:
Emergency seating = lots of legroom:
Very genereous recline:
Emergency exit hatch:
This A321 went to WAW:
With additional police controls:
And left just after:
And off we go:
A bit of cloud surfing:
This small box is handed out:
Was appropriate to the lenght and time of the flight and good. In no time we started our descent:
A Monday - Friday landing and our purser commented: "Welcome twice to windy Amsterdam !" … lol
We taxied for almost 15'' thanks to the Polderbaan landing :(
773 KL resting:
Low cost terminal in AMS:
Unless there is a last minute change, this 773 (PH - BVP) is rostered for my flight tonight.

And now heading to the Crown Lounge !
It was a nice short flight, the emergency exit legroom is just amazing.
CDG transfers are not so great, specially from 2G to 2E or F.
Stay tuned for the next part of the flight, the first long haul leg !
