This report describes a flight that I took in November from Brest in Brittany to Paris.

It's a classic domestic flight in France and was the first flight of the following routing:

BES>CDG You are here


Let's start with the Brest Bretagne Airport, which is a pretty small Airport, completely transformed in 2007 and that welcomes a little bit more than 1 million passengers every year.

It has just one runway that is easily watchable from the terminal thanks to the glass architecture that allows people to watch the planes through the windows.

There is no lounge here, but a few bars/restaurants were people can wait for their flights.

Here is a picture taken from the Bar, on the left there is an area where people can wait and watch the planes landside.
As you can see the decorator was well intentioned and tried to recreate the famous stick screen from the La Première lounge in CDG!

I ate quickly two third of a Sandwich(which wasn't the best of my life), because I was running out of time and went to the first floor for the boarding.

The airport was quite empty and I went through the controls quickly to reach my boarding gate.

There are a few shops airside with local products (food clothes…) that are pretty interesting, especially to buy souvenirs.

I only spotted that small Bombardier with the hop! logo from the walkway…

…before boarding in the Embraer 190.

Lets start with the compulsory winglet picture, on the right side.

But I was seated on the other side, where I spotted Europe Airpost's Boeing 737-38B registered F-GIXC.

That's how the pitch looks like for the seat 21A, that's obviously a plane that wasn't designed for tall people.

The remaining part of the safety instructions flyer should have been replaced for a long time…

Did I tell you that I love winglets?

That's my Coke and a little tribute by the way!

Nothing special for the food in such a domestic Air France flight, you have the choice between cakes (cooked in Brittany) and those Grissotti (cooked in Italy).

The flight was short and we are already in Paris.

As usual almost everybody stood up while the Fasten your seatbelt message was still displayed; anyway we all had to wait a bit to leave the Aircraft.

Last picture of the Embarer. With a good weather in Paris.

And another hop! painted plane spotted in front of the 2G terminal in CDG, before taking the bus to reach the Terminal 2F for my next flight.

Brest - BES


Paris - CDG



To conclude, this was a classic domestic flight on Air France, good but nothing more.

Those flights are quite the same in the Economy class since 15 years or more and that's pretty boring.

I liked Brest Bretagne Airport, which is small but modern and well designed.

Two points are lost in Acces and parking because the airport used to have a shuttle going directly to the city center (and to the SNCF railway station) and now it just goes to the last Tramway station wich is 17 min away from the city center.
