That's cool. Is that BOS or JFK the plane departs and arrives to? Looks like BOS to me, but could be wrong.

Thx.
Great vid. Unfortunately it took nearly forever to load. I always thought there are no jumpseat rides allowed on American Airlines. Maybe an industrie affiliate?

I like the scene where the pilot or fo cleans his shower in the hotel room. Nice one.

@UAL747
its from BOS to Paris, its shown on the beginning

I hate to rain all over your parade, but I wasnt in the least bit impressed. It looks like it was shot for an MTV or VH1 video. They should have kept the camera in the cockpit and focussed on the approach/departure procedures.

If you want to watch a real flight video, get hold of the Parkway Visual approach to 13R at JFK.

Heck, why stop there? Why not film two hours of Jepp updates? Or perhaps some footage of NOTAMs and TFR data?  sarcastic 

The video was a great balance of the operational and casual lifestyle of the crew.

Fantastic video, even it it looks like it was made for MTV, or whatever. If it was, it'd the best thing they've showed in years, IMHO.

You should check out the series "Mile High" on BBC TV. I havent watched it personally, but judging from the promos, it's not unlike the BOS-CDG video.

There are some of us who watch such videos to observe operational details. We watch shows like Frasier and Seinfeld for entertainment.

What is the BOS - CDG flight schedule? They arrived at CDG in dark hours, then go to sleep. I would think that also this flight would arrive in the morning (if early, therefore the darkness). So, did the guys go to sleep in the hotel in the morning, or was something cut from the arrival day? Didn't want to show to the family what they did earlier during the day...? They went out for a beer the following evening, the eve before the return flight. Then you can't have too many. If this would have been me, I would have gone out on the arrival night, had some fun, and then just taken it easy the other night. Maybe they did it, too. Hah...
