We live in Tahiti, French Polynesia, and we fly to France 1 or 2 times a year, with Air France via LAX. I’m tired to always fly with the same companie, the same plane, always transiting in LAX.
Here are the Flight Reports of my first round-the-world trip, with my family (2 adults and 1 child 3 years old), in Economy class.
Routing is PPT – LAX – CDG – TLS – FRA – SIN – AKL – PPT Companies will be Air France, Lufthansa Cityline, Singapore Airlines and Air Tahiti Nui

We arrived early at CDG after a less tiring than usual trip between Tahiti and France.
Passport control is deserted, waiting several arriving flights. Security check (3rd time of this trip) is very fast with Access # 1
View on 2E jetty (gates K) while walking in the 2E- 2F junction, with a AF B772
And especially Aeromexico B788 in the background
Departure from the pier 2 of 2F terminal for the first time for us (we are used to CDG TLS departing from pier 1 of 2F)
We have hours to wait, so we took the opportunity to go to the Air France lounge
This is almost the same as 2F1, we are not disoriented
Food and drinks offer does not vary either
Guest star : Mini grissini
Oh, there is a little better here
Special mention for a few good bottles of wine available (I tasted both)
Air France’s Birthday is everywhere
Our flight remains announced on time
Outside activity is not varied
The hour of departure is approaching, back in the terminal
Ground staff is preparing at the gate
Always the same boarding pass for all flights of this trip
Our A320 today is F- GKXE, 11 years old bird
Classic seat for domestic flights (nicknamed “ironing board”)
View from my seat during boarding
Safety card and Air France Magazine
Push back with a slight delay, overlooking the 2F2
Take off 10 minutes later
Nothing exciting to say about this flight, choice “sucré ou salé” (sweet or salted) is a trademark of Air France
The night landing at TLS does not offer a better view than takeoff
Disembarking just a few minutes after landing
While waiting baggages, I go to the rental car center and then we can leave quickly
We are now arrived in France for holidays, after a 24 hours trip
Air France Lounge - 2F, F2
Paris - CDG
Toulouse - TLS
Air France Comfort is not the main characterisitc of this domestic seat, but it is sufficient for a short flight like this one. Domestic experience with Air France is a basic one, no surprise, no excitment
Air France lounge, terminal 2F2 It’s a cozy lounge when it is not crowded as it was the case during this transit. Free wifi. Food and drinks : not much variety but a good choice of wine with beautiful bottles
CDG Terminal 2F Good surprise with a quick transit and courteous staff. Terminal 2F could be painful when very crowded, but we did not suffer of that, as we waited in the lounge.
TLS Airport Quick departure after disembarking, that’s all what I want after a very long flight.
