I've just flew to LA
in business class from CDG
( AF062 cause no traffic when i reach LA
So I left NCE
and.... I reached CDG
on time, but I decided to skip the lounge.... cause nothing to eat.... and no wireless connection.... I cant stand this airport....( as far I can see I'm not the sole ) anyway.... at 9:10 I'm in front of the gate ( E95 ). But the ground staff were on strike so the bording had been postponed... at 10:45 we were invited to board. As you can imagine we took a bus for a 10 min ride to the plane.... but as soon as we've reached the 777-200 we couldn't step off... so we were stuck in the bus, it was damn hot... people were sreaming, it was unpleasant... at 11:20 we were aboard... finaly....
once and again, when I reached my seat a flight attendant came and she was asking for my BP
( just to check if i were really flying in business ).
the seat is the new generation of l'espace affaires... ( NEV3 ), witch is great but old if you compare to SQ
one man had been ejected from the plane by the captain cause he was drunk, and freak.. he took off all his clothes....
then the flight attendant came with a drink service and I opted for the juice...
we pushed back at 1;10 pm... so its like 3 hours delayed...
we left paris at 1;25 pm...
flight attendant came by for a second drink service, I opted for a glass of apple juice.
The menu were handed out.
I opted for goat cheese tomato cake and aragula with balsamic vinegar. it was so yummi.
then I opted for a fillet od cod with scallion vinaigrette, cardamon basmati rice and chinese-style sauteed vegetables.. its wasnt good....
for desserts I had sherbet with cookies...
IFE : I've been enable to see only 1 movie then.... check out the pic
After lunch I put the seat in sleep mode... the seat is good if you get used to the previous one ( NEV2 )... i slept 3 hours.
As soon as I woke up I headed to the mini bar...
When I took the pics is was almost empty, but 5 mins later the FA
filled up the bar.
2 hours before landing, the dinner were served.
I opted for fillet of smoked salmom and zucchini marinated in olive oil.
And for the main course I opted for the vel with honey accompaied by stemed french freen beans and sauteed potatoes.. very yummi
Verdict : paying 7700 euros round trip ( C fare ), it can be a disappointment... the crew were nice but not like SQ
... with AF
the crew are good or bad.. why.. but I cant avoid AF
for this route.... direct cdg to lax...
Check In: 10 (Friendly and free)
Lounge: - (always the same stupid lounge, so no lounge for this flight)
Boarding: 3 (so disorganized )
Seat: 8 (a bit wider could be nice)
Crew: 9 (always looking after you)
Meal: 7 (they can go much better, I expect more from AF
Entertainment: 2 (12 movies, 6 seen last month, and my screen was inop)
MORE TR to come
Hope you have enjoyed...
