To cope with the low publication rate, I take the opportunity to translate a few of my french reports. Here a short round trip to Paris. CDG wasn't my final destination as I was heading to Lille, but there is no direct flight from Basel to Lille. By train it takes almost 7H. From ZRH there is nothing but there is a connection ex SXB. However, no flights on Sunday and I needed to fly back on Sunday. I will then take a flight to Paris and then a high speed train from CDG to Lille, that takes around 55 minutes. Price was good, the flight was at 100€ and the train was 10€ to go and 15€ back but in first class.
I was dropped off at 10H for a flight at 10H55.
The weather was awesome for this early february, almost spring weather :)
The airport is not that busy.
In no time I am airside:
Not that much activity that Friday:
Boarding for SP is left, all others on the right:
The plane arrived on time and so was the boarding:
The aircraft door:
An upgrade to J was sold at .. 149€ no thanks, since the "meal" is a chocolate bar and champagne in a plastic glass.
I'll stay in coach then :)
The seat pitch is good:
On time push back:
The E-145 to Orly had a 90 minutes delay:
A perfect day to fly!

The curtain separating both classes:
Pre Covid there were snacks and almost a full bar:
Starting our descent to CDG:
With some lovely views over Paris:
After Paris the views are not that nice anymore:
And here is CDG:
Heading to 2G:
We parked closed to this Embraer Twin:
This livery is supposed to be replaced by the Air France by HOP! livery but I wonder how long this will take, given that there are still "old" Air France livery planes flying, the "new" one was introduced more than 10 years ago.
Time to leave the plane:
Nice weather in Paris also:
I make my way to the CDG train station:
I was pleased with that flight, it really did its job: ontime, a snack onboard, nice views during the flight.
As usual, thank you for reading!
