A new southern weekend is scheduled

During September, I had seen an AF promotion for flights in France and Europe from €40 per trip, so I find flights at times that suit me more or less and will only have to add a few euros for seat reservation.

The car park is reserved at Orly as well as the rental of a car in Nice with Hertz.


Routing will be very simple.

direction orly airport


I have reserved  in the Orly 2 car park which avoids the slowdown at the entrance to the zone 3 drop-off point.

Conclusion

An excelent value for money, it is true that I had taken it early but it is pleasant to fly with AF at the price of a low cost.
Refurbished plane with Wifi available, I have the "shrimp" on the winglets. Snack that has the merit of existing and Air France Play application for reading.
Friendly and professional flight attendants, few people on the plane, everything to make the flight enjoyable.

ORY, The gradual return to old facilities is not rewarding. Few people on the road but it's Saturday so we can consider that it's normal. Like CDG, no efficient public transport connection.
Still many shops closed which does not brighten the passage in the terminal.
Passage of the PIF of the C gates fast.

NCE quick exit without luggage to retrieve, the car rental center is within reach, the connection to Nice and the other surrounding cities by tram or bus is very practical.

    Thanks for sharing! It's nice to see USB on most of the Métropole fleet now, though it would have been nice if they just changed out those Recaro seats altogether when they refurbished the interiors. I hope they redid the padding because the seats were already hard years ago last time I flew on one with these seats.
    Good thing the flight was mostly empty so Sylvester got his own seat!

    Thanks for sharing!
