Hello guys,

I'll be heading to Germany this xmas with my mother and girlfriend. Air France was the cheapest and I was also very happy to see that we'll be flying on the A380. With this trip comes new experinces and I'd like a bit of info on all this.
I read many trip reports from the A380 and tried for AF.

Does the tail cam come standard with all A380's? I would love to watch my plane and it would be cool to see the cockpit view (ironally I usally fly on "wing view" on flight sim).

General thoughts on the A380? Can we wonder around upstairs too or is that blocked off? What about other classes? I'm with a first-time flyer and would like to give her the tour.

We're flying coach, how are the meals on the planes? I've flown KLM and BA years ago, how do they compare. I really enjoyed BA's meal.

When we check in in BTV, can we put our bags through all the way to BRE? Its a DL/AF codeshare.

I was unable to select the CDG-BRE seats, when can I do that? Guess its a short flight and everyone doesn't mind sitting apart if that happens.

We have seats 43 and 46--on the A380, are there any window "but not really" seats to be aware of? I remember I was younger and was sooooo happy to get a window seat on BA 747-200 out of YUL only to sit down and find it blocked by the wall.

JFK....traffic...winter...How will the International push and possible wx delay affect my flight (yeah yeah hard to tell at this point) flying out on the JFK-CDG run)?

I think thats it for now.
Thanks!

I think you can go upstairs if there's seats in your cabin upstairs.

Only when you get on the plane and get off the plane if you're lucky. My guess is Air France will board you through the 2L door where it's nothing but coach after that, so you most likely won't get to see Tempo or Affaires at all.

Bags will be tagged to BRE. Not sure if you'd need them at CDG to clear customs.

At the airport, either at JFK or BTV.

What's your connection time at JFK? If you misconnect, you'll be put on the next available routing on Delta/Air France/KLM to Bremen, either via CDG or AMS.

We have like 5 hours at JFK I think. Yeah, I haven't had a huge presense on Flyertalk but I thought "why not?" I didn't know if all the airport/airline codes would throw people off though.
thanks!

If everything is working as it should, you'll get seats at BTV, but you won't be able to change them (they'll just be assigned).

Nope. He'll clear immigration at CDG and customs at BRE.

Will the A380 have the "aircraft view" (Skycam)?
