This report is the English version of my recent native French opus.
After nearly two months away, time has come to fly back to the “Red Island.” This report relates the first leg of my homeward routing to Madagascar.

Once the TT car returned, I make my way to the check-in area. TLS airport has already been presented by Icare and so have I in my previous TLS-PRG FR.

I head to the Sky Priority line as FB Silver members are welcome. The lady in charge is a lovely agent, not only because she accepts my overweight luggage. Would have a machine?

Gate 42 is in the newest part of the airport. Although the area is very bright, it is not spotter-friendly. But the traffic is very little.
photo DSCN6654

The main change is this area is related to the hung adverts. The Rolls Royce ones have been removed for Pratt and Witney. Thus, which ones am I gonna chose?

The non Schengen destinations depart straight ahead. Therefore, I turn left.

Conclusion

We arrived on time.

The crew did the job.

Being 2 in a row of 3 makes the flight much more comfortable.

TLS is a pleasant place to be as the staff attitude has improved.

The long lasting wait for the luggages in CDG is a really shame for one of the world major airports.

Thanks for reading this first experience in English. Hope no one is hurt ;)
