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

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.

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.

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...

Not everyone here has taken to the sky's yet or are even going to. Until I started flying I wanted to know every single mundane detail about planes and aviation period. I use to be able to name the type of, number of aircraft for every legacy carrier. I go to work and deal ATC the entire time but when I get home I still listen to the live feed on liveatc.net. Even doing ATC I still play with AirNav Flight Tracker 6 that cost a about $150.00 month but some of us are a little....overboard (maybe) with aviation and planes I am. I know a lot of pilots who treat as a 5-9 and some who just love it. So try a remember what is was like before someone pinned wings on you.

Oh no doubt, but there was no need for 747600 to rain on the video. There are video's out there for that though and this isn't one of them. I agree with you though, 100% I love flying no matter how much of it i get. That was why I liked this video.

It depends on what you're looking for. What this pilot tried to do was to show his little daughter what his job was all about in just a couple of minutes. I think he succeeded in doing that very well, especially considered that this movie was made by an "amateur" filmer. He tells a story, from the beginning to the end. Part of that story is the preparation for the flight (which includes the ground-crew), his stay in Paris and even if the actual stay isn't related to aviation, it is highly related to his job.
I was very impressed by this movie.

That would have told only a small part of the story and it would have bored his little girl to death.

Agreed, it's not a flight video but it wasn't meant to be one in the first place. It's a short movie though and, IMHO, it did the trick for his daughter and a lot of other people. The special thing about this movie is that it can be entertaining to many people, even to those who are not primarily interested in aviation...

I would imagine that the film was shot by the F/B, or 3rd pilot.

That was really cool. What a fun way to show people how a typical trip goes for a flight crew. Even as a F/A I could relate to it. The only difference is we work much harder, drink more, and have much cooler layover attire.  Wink Happy flying everyone!

My issue is not with the Captain who made it for his daughter, but for the person that posted it here.

Keep in mind if this video was meant for his daughter ONLY (or his other family and friends)... why would he have posted it on a public website to begin with?

The point is, it's a great, fun, energetic, positive... and even humorous video to just watch and enjoy the experience. That's all there is to it.

I enjoyed both videos. It seems they both served a purpose, but in different categories so to speak. I did notice upon the 380 landing that while the #2 T/R translated, the #1 did not. I wonder if this is normal operation, or what.

A video of an A380? I'll take the first video, thanks.

All in all, it was an excellent video...great shots, good little bit of detail for us aviation nuts, but also just a good casual look at an airline pilot's life. Especially loved the fast-forwarded scenes used in key places in the movie.

Best part- when the two were under the Eifel Tower, and one motioned for a drink, and the other concured...then they showed up at the bar. If that's not a good way to explain what a layover is for, I don't know what is.
