As part of my job, I have been travelling to Bordeaux a lot of times in the past year, up to a weekly basis at some point. This was the first time I experienced a "regular" flying experience, where even some crew member might recognise and greet me!
Even thought I was taking risks as it was in the middle of the pandemic, I was super happy to fly.

I did check in on the app, the days I was checking online and printing are long gone!
For some reasons you couldn't choose your seat on any of the Hop fleet (now you can), and even though your Flying blue status would typically entitles you to do so.
The plane has the standard 100 seats in a 2-2 config.

Once airside, I naturally went to this Air France Hop pier…
I went naturally there but my plane was parked at Q06 gate, quite unusual.
We were called to board on time; with the Skypriority respected, premium passengers were called first. And for once I was one of the only one to use the skyprioirty lane..
The welcome was very friendly I do remember that.

Push back next to this busy Hop pier with some Air Corsica ATR - no need to tell you it was bound to.
soon after the take off the "service" started. As it was in the middle in the pandemics, the complimentary service was limited to a soft drink..
Since the first lock down, Air France stopped printing its magazine, and so it is digitally that you can discover it; it is available on the Air France play app.
The fleet page… Look at the big whale…
really miss this sight!
The network was so extended
Approach of the Garonne,
A quick bonus, Air France has a "what kind of traveller are you" that lists out the flights in the last 10 years that you went on..
AF: a nice flight overall. Crew was really professional and caring. Even though the E190 are correct, I prefer the "sausages" CRJs....
LYS: airport very efficient and fluid as usual.
BOD: airport efficient too but needs to be refurbished.
