IS it a regular AF 344 or AF346 flight?

Or just lucky employees?

Just a demonstration/acquaintance flight not a commercial flight with paying passengers. Done for Air France but it isn't an AF aircraft.

The last I heard ...

Flight number AF002
Expected time of arrival is around 12:45pm.
It's apparently going to do a low and over on runway 24L / 06R, fly over the city and then land on runway 24R / 06L.

It will spend the night at YUL and then is scheduled to depart for MCO at 2:00pm on Tuesday.

It will be back at YUL on Thursday arriving at 10:00am. It will then depart for CDG at 10:00pm.

According to ADP web site :
flight # : AIB380 / AF002
departure : 11:00
arrival : 12:20
I could have been on this flight (invited by AF) but was not in the 50 first respondent  crying

Qazar, where were you? Traffic was retarded! trucks all over the place. I should have stopped at cote vertu where all the people were standing. I just had to drive next to the runway, where traffic was even worse. I missed the landing because of traffic!

The traffic was insane... I always thought that Montreal spotting community was insignificant, some people who were in lodnon for the 380, said that this was the biggest turnout they've seen.

The AF flight back to CDG will leave YUL on Thursday 15th at 10:00PM LT. Scheduled to land in CDG at 10:45AM on Friday 16th.
But I think some demo flights are also scheduled in between.

Seen it from Côte-Vertu overpass.

Crazy! The traffic on the motorway underneath ground to a complete halt, on the way south, when The Beast passed over.

Yes, it was full of people everywhere, cars parked along the motorway...

Very elegant in flight. I still have difficulty with the cockpit shape, but the wings are worth the look.

I had the feeling that the plane was quite quiet indeed, but it is hard to tell: if the traffic had not stopped, we wouldn't have heard anything (a few Dash-8, A32x and CRJ flew around, before The Beast, and we just couldn't hear anything).

It gave me a surprising feeling of lightness! I saw it balance a bit on the approach, where I had not seen the Das-8s move at all.
