needing to go to an event linked to my fundation in Toulouse, I was sent in the morning by train to Toulouse. However, as we are leaving late Toulouse, there is no choice than taking back the airplane to Paris, as i need to be at work tomorrow morning. It will be a one way back with Easyjet for all my group.
We arrived in Toulouse-Blagnac airport 45 min before our flight. A new airport for me, the last "big" french airport I have never been too yet.
We arrived by taxi from the city center for 30€ approximately.
We pass the checks directly, crowded but mostly fast. I like this system of water bottle distribution for 1€ .
Then, we have the obligation to cross the duty free to join our gate.
The FIDS :
We are really in the Airbus world in TLS. But, as the branded items are very expensive, I will only take a "remove before flight" of Airbus.
We arrived at our gate, and the boarding has already started. No time for a sandwich, whereas the airport seems to have a nice catering service. First sight on our aircraft.
I am amazed by the boarding procedure of U2 in TLS, compared with ORY or CDG, as we are going onto the tarmac before boarding. No jetbridge for us today.
Huge surprise, we will fly on Airbus A321 Neo. The second in a row for me in just two weeks :).
Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures
Zoom on our LEAP 1A
Our neighboors : A320 U2 A321 AF
Doar time :
Fuselage shot :
Mon seat, the 6A :
The pitch is more than enough for a 1h flight
The aircraft smells like it is new !
Zoom on our sharklet and our neighboor, an A320 U2 that is pushing back
We will push back on time A low cost colleague is arriving TO from NTE
We are taxiing next to Airbus factories that we can't see well
Take-off and right turn
I will sleep during almost all of our flight, where we would take a vey strange western way to Paris
Final on the south of the airport A quick sight on the cargo facilities of CDG
Landing on time We would cross the terminal 2E to join the 2D B787 LATAM
We would leave the aircraft by the jet bridge. We are at the end of the terminal 2D. A long walk, on this very huge corrido, which smell the low cost terminal.
I would go back to Paris by Uber with two other friends for approximately 52€.
Thanks for reading
See you soon on an other trip to Toulous, but this time with AF.

A normal flight with Easyjet, with an improvement thanks to the A321neo. TLS is a nice airport, but which seems complex to access with no car at your disposal CDG is as always efficient, but the terminal 2D seems to be more adapted to the low-cost model.

What is the fare difference between U2 and AF? Looks like heavy traffic to both ORY and CDG on AF at night. The taxi fares are likely as much as the airfare^^
The seat pitch looks tight, but sufficient for this short hop. I’m surprised U2 didn’t opt for the high-density cabins on their A321neos.
Hello and thank you for sharing this report ! U2 is offering a quite convinient service on domestic routes. For the longer routes in Europe, it may be less appropriate with leg space a bit small. There is also no additional service but that is the fare ! See you soon !
Interesting that EZY are doing ground boarding in TLS. The airport is nowhere near full capacity and usually has tons of open gates. Every time I’m in TLS, there are only like 3 or 4 aircraft maximum on the ground at any given time. I wonder if it was an exceptionally busy time or maybe they’re just trying to save money by not using a jetbridge.
Cool to get the A321neo though sadly doesn’t seem to be very much exciting about it. No USB ports on a brand new plane is kind of a shame.
Thanks for sharing
