No fly planed last may... It must be a mistake !! Thanks Lufthansa and the last minute offers Ready to fly, i booked the friday afternoon a flight for the next day morning, back the sunday evening.

is not the most obvious... AF
operates a flight every 1or 2 hours, in code share with Swiss Intl (I don't understant why it still exist !!), and Easyjet Switzerland 3 daily flights from Orly Airport, with arround 1 hour flight time !
The journey was :

Departure from CDG
Terminal 1. Sorry, no pics, is there stricly prohibited ! The "satellite" 6 is in restauration in 2008, departure from "satellite" 3. No lounge for C/HON/SEN

So, time is now ready for departure, some turbulance on board due to the bad weather. Good board service on this short flight !

was very pleasant. LH
is a very good quality airline for european flights.
