Hello !

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

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

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

We are now arrived in France for holidays, after a 24 hours trip

Conclusion

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.

    You certainly covered some great distances on your journey so far.

    Great pictures of spotting, especially the AM 787. The gate area looked extremely crowded. I bet there were several flights leaving at the same time.

    Service and catering look OK for a domestic flight.

    Thanks for sharing.
