Happy new year to all !
Being in X-mas Hollidays since Friday December 20th and needing to go to Cannes on Wednesday December 25th and wishing to go in Israel during this period, I created an alarm on Kayak 3 weeks before.
I found nothing interesting before Wednesday December 18th where Kayak made me an offer with Alitalia at 500€ on Expedia, with an extra 50€ offered by Expedia once on their website.
The routing will be :
With the strike in France, I arrived at CDG Airport by Roissybus after a 2h journey for a cost of 13,50€
The famous FIDS of the Terminal 2F
I am going to an AF auto-boarding check-in where I can choose my seats on board. AZ app sent me directly on the AF app where I could not choose my seats nor having my boarding passes.
Before passing Air Side, I went to Alitalia stand to order a kosher meal between FCO and TLV. It is impossible to do so on their website and you need to call a customer service which is not free to be able to order.
Unhappily, the agent will tell me that it is impossible to order a special me. It surprised me because the flight duration is over 3h.
I would pass the security checks in less than two minutes.
B787 in final
Then, the "owner"of the place
Lot of AF
two KLM (one has 1h30 of delay)
A look on the Terminal 2D with much more different airlines
I seat next to my boarding gate.
A nice chocolate from ParisAeroport
My airplane seems to arrive on time from FCO
Embraer Air France Hop
Then, my A321 arrives.
It is I-BIXK (19.7 years)
Boarding starts on time
With self-boarding and boarding with an agent
Our airplane :
instant gate :
At the opposite of the feeling I got after reading your FR about AZ, i find the cabin beautiful and chic as the logo AZ on wood underlines
My seat, the 36A :
The pitch is ok for such a flight, but the seat is not really confortable
The airplane is not so young
The tablet is clean
The pocket contents :
The destinations AZ :
The fleet AZ :
We pushed back with a 20min delay. This is not a good news as I got only 1h20 of transfer time at FCO
I told it to a steward by wishing he would prevent the AZ team at FCO.
He would answer that even with an hour I would easily get my connexion
An A320 Air France arrived when we pushed back
Seen on the first A380 AF in neutral livery
Seen on the 2G
The 2E with A380 AF (hope I will have the chance to refly them before leaving the fleet)
An B777 Américan
Take off, we fly over the Bourget Airport
The stade de France
Smooth turbulences during the first hour of flight
The service will start after
Salty biscuits for me with a tomato juice and a zero coca-cola.
I found the salty biscuits very good, I want then to start the sugar one.
But, the gingember biscuits have a strong taste which is quite particular to my mind.
We start our descente where we can't see nothing out until approximately 1500ft
The stewards won't collect our trash before landing
We landed with the same delay
Lots of Alitalia
Malgré tout, un peu de diversité
Despite all, a bit of diversity
Jet2 and BA next to where we parked
I am at the last rank
The deboarding operation is very long
I asked again to the steward to help me for my connexion.
He would ask me if there is no direct flight from Paris yo TLV
By the way, he would wish me a merry christmas but the crew will let me a special feeling : not bad not good
last seen on our plane
On est au contact et la surprise pax-bus.
We are on cotact and surprise : pax-bus
On perdra encore facilement 15min.
Je pensais à ce moment là dormir à Rome ce soir
We would lost at least again 15min
I really thought I would sleep in Rome tonight
I arrive at the Alitalia transfer desk where someone is awaiting for me.
He won't come with me but told me my next departure gate.
A passport check more and a 15min walk to join my gate
I run to try to catch my connexion with no really hope
See you soon for the following of the journey Thanks for reading
A good flight with Alitalia dispite the delay and the crew that was not so nice
CDG is very practical despite the strike in France
FCO is a very beautiful airport but I still don't understand the logical of the de-boarding
