My previous flight arrived in the Terminal 2G, so I had to take a shuttle to reach the Terminal 2F, which is way bigger, better and more interesting than the depot called Terminal 2G.

First, let's have a look on the departures board, which shows us that almost all the flights are going to Europe.

I had approximately 3 hours to wait before the boarding, but a lot of work to do, so I didn't spend that time to spot planes or to review the many shops.

The boarding gate was F30 which is located at the end of this wing of the 2F terminal (which looks already way better than the 2G).

The night came and I headed to this F30 gate, which is next to a corner with better seats and tables than the average in this terminal. Time for a blured corporate picture!

It's an interesting corner with a good 270° view, unfortunately the framework of the building prevents from taking good pictures.

I had a clear sight on the ground, where everybody was rushing around to allow all the planes to be on time.

Time to board! The pilot recognized me and waved to say hello.

A few people were in front of me in the walkway before boarding this Airbus A319.

Quick sight through the cockpit door. I noticed that those boxes with multiple labels on the foreground are not really nice and I think that they should be hidden to have a more welcoming entrance.

The seats were quite new and nice in dark blue with red stitching.


The pitch is whay better than on my previous flight with the Embraer 190, and the comfort was good for such a quick flight (1:30)

Sadly I noticed two big cracks in the plastic around the hinges of the tray, causing a disturbing play when the tray was in use. That's an obvious mistake in the design of the seats.


People were still filling the plane with luggage, so we waited a bit before taxi.

I spotted an Airbus A318-111 parked next to us.

Let's take off! Please read the safety instructions.

Classic snack on board, with a Coke and another Mini Gressini bag for me. Note that those ones were still made in Italy, but from a different brand than the ones I ate earlier that day, on another Air France flight. Anyway, they were still too salty for me!

Here is the first clue showing that this flight was going to Munich, Germany, the capital city of beer…
The two PAX sitting on my row ordered one beer (which was already bigger than my ridiculous Coke can [angry]) and then a second one when the FA came back to put the trolley away. I never thought that I could ask for a second drink, but I learned a good trick to have two mini coke cans on my next flights!

We arrived in Munich on time and I went directly underground to take the subway and reach the city (which is not so close).

Here are the endless corridors with moving sideways under the MUC Airport.

Conclusion

To conclude it was a good flight, it looks like Air France takes care of European flights better than of domestic ones.

Air France lost two points for the cracks in the seats and other points because of the lack of IFE.

MUC lost a few points too in Services and activities, because the Airport was really empty when I arrived.
