Due to the early departure of the flight, I have to sleep directly at the airport. There are many hotels in the airport area. I choose the Ibis hotel located next to the suburban train station "Aéroport CDG 1".

The cabin crew aren't really friendly, the welcome wasn't very good, they don't have a smile.
Crossing throught the QSuite to go in the first economy cabin.

My seat is located on the last row of the first economy cabin.

Incredible! The flight is really empty, this is perfect and more confortable.
