my first flight to london

Hello all,
Today a very old archive flight as I am publishing my first flight to London with two other friends back in 2007, and in fact the trip that made me want to go and live the London life!

This report is to share with you my memories and what aviation looked like back in these days, but obviously I don't have as many pictures as I wish I'd be able to share with you.. 


We had a very much "student" budget, AF was way too expensive for us, and we found randomly on Lufthansa and British Airways websites that the price was ok. I think skyscanner wasn't around, we looked at expedia and liligo or something like this.

Of course I was nowhere near to be aware of the miles program at the time, but for info here is roughly how much Miles & More you'd get for this trip.

396 miles
250 miles statut 

I remember this flight felt really like an adventure, I was having cash, traveller cheques, I event went to the UK consulate in Lyon to double check everything LOL

I can't really find the boarding pass anymore, I will try to find it and post it soon.


Passed the excitation of booking a flight, printing everyhting in 2 copies, my 2 friends and I met at T1 of Lyon Airport, that was still called satolas at the time.
You can look at the cars near the TGV station and have a laugh!!

I remember we had the googles looking at this guy "relaxing" randomly on the grass!

ONBOARD THE b737-500

Here is the picture of our plane, apologise I took it from the paxbus and it is not the best picture of all times…

As you can see we boarded only with the front stairs; it is funny to see that there were just 120 seats on this plane.

The cruise… I remember my friends to be realllllly stressed out before take off; as it was their first flight, they even took to pills to relax!!
I was nothing but excited!

And of course we were young, foolish and already alcool addicts!
If you wonder which of these teenagers I was, I am with the white tshirt…

Hello Germany!

I don't remember on which runway we landed, but of course we parked away and waited for another paxbus - classic stuff at FRA!

That neighbour, the CRJ700 LH was just 4 years old and still according to AirFleet it is now with GoJet airlines.

I don't think it would be either fair nor appropriate for me to rank such an old flight, I don't have any memory of anything particularly bad so I'll just give it a 7.5 to all the criteria.

    Oh man, a retro-report on a 735 how cool! Wow, seems like a lifetime ago...but it wasn't that long. I'm guessing this was pre-crappy-ironing-board NEK seats?

    The good old times of complimentary drinks and food onboard LH

    Like I said...feels like a lifetime ago!

    Fun walk down memory lane, thanks for sharing!

    Thanks Kevin!
    Yes it was my first trip to London and ultimately what made me want to live there so all good memories for me...
    Indeed it was a mere 15 years ago and it really feels like it was another era..

    I have a few pictures of my first flight with AF in 1998, trying to find more pictures before posting it! And with some good surprises to come!
