School Tour To Beijing On Air France (Pics)

Introduction

Hey everyone! This is my first Trip Report so don't be too harsh!  veryhappy 

Anyway, I was part of a group of about 80 students and teachers from my school in Ireland who were going to Beijing on a school tour! I was so excited to be going!! We went for a week, seeing all of the major touristy places in Beijing, like the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and Beijing Zoo to name but a few!

The school was originally planning to fly with Air China through LHR, but CA would not accept such a large group on their flight, so we flew with AF via CDG instead! (The better option, if you ask me!! Big grin)

Anyway, on with the details!


Day 1 - Thursday 6th April

Half of the group went on AF5001 for a 9am departure (Flight 1), the others went on AF5005 for a 12pm departure (Flight 2). We had to split up, as Cityjet wouldn't take all of us in one go. (We were together for CDG-PEK though.)

Flight 1 had to be at the school by 6:30am. We were on the coach and on the way to DUB by 6:35.

Some of the group on the coach to the airport!


It's about 12 miles to DUB from where I live, Dunboyne, Co. Meath and so, it didn't take long for us to reach the airport. Once there, we went straight to the Cityjet check-in desks, where they were waiting for us. It took quite a long time to check us all in, and halfway through, the ticket machine broke down which caused more bother! We finally received our boarding passes and went straight to the security checkpoint to get to the gate. The queue for security was quite long, but it moved fairly quickly. Once through, we went straight to our gate in Pier C.

Boarding was took a bit of time and, as a result, we were delayed by about half an hour.

Boarding The Aircraft


The first thing I noticed about the plane was that it was small and did seem quite cramped at 3X3 seating. It was also a big novelty having the engines right outside your window!!

View from window


We took off from Runway 28 and climbed to our cruising altitude.

Inflight service began soon enough, which consisted of a couple of pastries, some brown bread, a packet of jam, a yoghurt and tea, coffee or juice.

Some pictures enroute to CDG


The flight didn't last long and, before we knew it, we were descending into CDG.

We landed pretty much on time, but then came an incredibly long taxi to our remote stand!!

We finally got to our stand, and disembarked pretty swiftly.

The bus ride to the terminal gives you a great view of the goings on at CDG! Here are some pics:

Once inside CDG, we passed though Passport Control and exited the terminal. Our connection to PEK wasn't for 7 hours. And so, The school decided to bring us to Le Bourget to pass the time!!!  hyper  Great school I go to, isn't it!!!  bigthumbsup 

We got a public bus to Le Bourget. It took the best part of an hour to get there. We then had an hour to spend at the museum. Here are some pics I took:

Le Bourget was a great way to pass the time in CDG and a great idea by the school!

Before we knew it, it was time to head back to the airport to meet up with Flight 2 and get ready for our next flight!

We got back to the airport at about 1700 and went straight through security at Terminal 2C, as we had got our boarding passes for this flight back in DUB.

We then had some time to wander about 2C before our flight was called for boarding. I got a panini and a drink which cost me a whopping €7.50!!!  scared 


Some pics of 2C:

Our Plane



Our Gate was C81.

We were all seated, and took off a little past 1900.

Inflight Service began soon after, with drinks first, before the dinner for the evening was served. I cannot remember what I had to eat, but I know that it was quite good!!  yes 

They then turned off the cabin lights and let people get to sleep. There was a self-service area in the galley for soft drinks if you wanted anything.


http://i3.tinypic.com/vsl89c.jpg
Enroute


The entertainment system onboard kept me going for quite a while! I watched Jarhead and Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire, as well as lots of other programmes.


http://i3.tinypic.com/vsltfb.jpg
View out the window over Russia


As we neared Beijing, Breakfast was served. Again, I can't remember what it was. Sorry!!

We touched down fighting a severe crosswind just after 1100 local time. Then came memories of CDG, an awfully long taxi to the gate!!

We left the aircraft and proceeded through Visa Control, which took a long time as there were over eighty of us!!

We went down into the Baggage Hall where we met our two tour guides, William and Francis from CYTS.

We were quite lucky with our baggage . . . only one person's baggage didn't arrive . . . one of the teachers!!!! She got it eventually . . two days later!

We then went out into the madness that is Beijing's Arrivals Hall!! You get dozens of men screaming at you, 'Taxi Sir, you want taxi??', and become lost in a huge crowd of people!! It was quite the experience!! Then, half of the group got lost and we spent about half an hour getting back together again!! We eventually all got on the buses and left PEK until next week!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Holiday!!

I won't go into too much detail of what we did in Beijing, but I'll give you a basic idea of our itinerary:


Day Two - Friday 7th April

After leaving the airport, we went straight to Tiananmnen Square and had a little look around the place. We then went to our hotel, the Best Western Premier four star hotel in Beijing's CBD. That evening, we went out for our first meal and took a trip to the Night Markets where we could sample fried scorpions and snake to name but a few!!


Day Three - Saturday 8th April

Today we had a full day trip to Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven. Here are a few Pics:

http://i3.tinypic.com/vsme7r.jpg

http://i3.tinypic.com/vsmglj.jpg


Day Four - Sunday 9th April

Today, we went to the Great Wall at Badaling. It was absolutely breathtaking!!

http://i3.tinypic.com/vsmnp2.jpg

We also went to the Ming Dynasty Emperor's Tombs and walked the Sacred Way:

http://i3.tinypic.com/vsn96x.jpg


Day Five - Monday 10th April

Today, we paid a visit to the Hutong area of the city, and got a chance to go on a rickshaw!! We went to a local Kindergarten to see the little kiddies and give them some presents, as well as visiting the American College in the city to speak with some English speaking students there.

http://i3.tinypic.com/vsnfd5.jpg

http://i3.tinypic.com/vsneix.jpg


Day Six - Tuesday 11th April

Today, we went to Beijing Zoo to see the Giant Pandas there. We also went to the Summer Palace.

http://i3.tinypic.com/vsnho4.jpg

That evening, we went to a Kung Fu Show, which was spectacular!!

http://i3.tinypic.com/vsnihf.jpg


Day Seven - Wednesday 12th April

Today was Shopping Day!! We went to a shopping mall and literally, shopped till we dropped!!

That evening, we went to 'Durty Nellies', an Irish Pub!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Day Eight - Thursday 13th April

The Journey Home!

We had to be up at 0500 for our flight at 1010.

We were out of the hotel by 0630. Traffic was ok, until we were just approaching the airport, when it came to a standstill.

We finally got to the airport, where we picked up our baggage (It had been brought to the airport during the night by our tour company).

We then proceeded through Baggage control and checked in for our flight.

For some reason, they couldn't check us in for our CDG-DUB flight, so we only got one boarding card. This was worrying, as we only had 1hr and 35mins to connect in CDG.

We then passed through Visa Control and Security before going to our gate (21). We then had an hour or two to wander through the shops. I got myself a Starbucks.

We were then called for boarding.

Day: 13th April
Route: PEK-CDG
Airline: Air France, AF129
A/C: Boeing 777-300/ER
Reg.: F-GSQD

I was at the top of the line and was first on board!

Everyone boarded pretty quickly. There were a couple of free seats left in Tempo, but not much.

We took off around 1015, just before a KLM 747 heading to Amsterdam.

The flight was pretty uneventful. For lunch, I had Sauteed Beef with Penne Pasta and sugarsnap peas. (Yes, I remember!! biggrin  Wink

I watched The Chronicles Of Narnia and some other French films, which were quite funny!

Our cruising altitude for the most part was 31500ft. As we came into Europe though, we climbed to 35000ft.

http://i3.tinypic.com/vsnksm.jpg
Enroute to CDG

We landed at around 1500. The landing again was not the greatest!!

When we disembarked, we found lots of AF personnel waiting for us! They had buses ready to bring all forty-five of us to our DUB flight.

They were a bit flustered that we didn't have any boarding cards for our DUB flight, but it was soon rectified.

We got to 2F, received our boarding cards, passed through security and got to our gate with plenty of time to spare! Well done AF!!

Then it was time to board our final flight!

Day: 13th April
Route: CDG-DUB

We were bussed to our aircraft again, and boarded the full flight back home. We took off after a long enough taxi, and were soon served our inflight meal. It consisted of two sandwiches, one ham, the other salmon, and a chocolate cake, along with your choice of drink.


http://i3.tinypic.com/vsnv2x.jpg
Over the UK

We soon descended into Dublin, and had a very smooth landing on RWY 28. We taxiied to the C Pier and disembarked our plane.

We went through Passport Control and picked up our Baggage. Again, only one person's baggage didn't arrive. But it came the next morning.

We then made our way to our coach which was in the coach park. We arrived back to Dunboyne at about 1830 that evening, at the end of a very long day!


Before I go, here is a photo of the whole group at The Great Wall:

Nice report and pics! AF looks to be nice; I have yet to fly on them. Its amazing that AF, and Swiss still use the BAE-146. When I flew on one, it seemed so uncomfortable!
I love to fly!

I cant believe that AF uses 3x3 config in their BAE eek ive been in them several times NZ and QF and its only 2x3 and that feels 'comfortable'

Great report, i know what school trips are like how you get broken up etc lol but always good fun  Smile

Thanks!!

Yeah, it was very cramped. I would say that a flight much longer than DUB-CDG would be too much for a WX BAe 146!

My school went nowhere.

We went to Disney World -- all the way from (drumroll please) Tampa, 90 minutes on a nasty old school bus with green vinyl seats and no air conditioning. Was more pleasant than being squished into one of those LH busses to the remote stand at FRA, though.

Padraic -- great pictures, nice report.  thumbsup

Hey Paraic,

Cool report, well done & thanks for sharing. Our school in Longford took us to Barcelona. But that was almost ten years ago in May 1996. FR DUB > STN on the good old 737-200, coach to Dover, across to Calais, and a coach all the way down through France to Barcelona! And the same on the way back!! LOL...

Look forward to reading more reports from you again soon!

All the best  Smile

Hi everyone!!

Just thought I'd let you know that I am returning to Beijing again next April with my school!! I loved it so much that I am going again!! Big grin

We'll be there from March 31st to April 7th 2007. I think that we will be flying with AF again.

I know it's a few months off yet but watch out for the trip report!!

I can't wait to see the city again!

All the best,

Wow great report and trip, that must have been too cool, I wish i ever had the opportunity to do a long haul trip with my class. We had trips to London, Barcelona, Milan and Venice all by plane, but i'm sure such a trip is something not to compare to the trips we did.

Yes, I'm Jealous Big grin

Just thought I'd let you know that I am returning to Beijing again next April with my school!! I loved it so much that I am going again!!

We'll be there from March 31st to April 7th 2007. I think that we will be flying with AF again.

I know it's a few months off yet but watch out for the trip report!!

Ooh, I can't wait!  hyper   hyper

nice pics. I love Beijing one of my Favorite cities behind Rome. I've also been to the Great wall at Badaling. AF 773 looks nice as well.

Hi,

Awesome, trip report!!!  Smile The High School I went to had trips like that but sadly couldn't go on any.  Sad

Quoting EI787 (Thread starter):
Well done AF!!

AF is truly a great airline. I flew AF many times on YUL-CDG and MIA-CDG routes. Great service and awesome experiences.

Glad you had fun!  Smile

Cheers,
Imad
