This Trip Report is dedicated to my dear Mum who sadly died from leukemia last April. I really enjoyed flying with her...
Last October/November, my wife and I spent a wonderful honey moon in LA and in Hawaii.
I was so excited as it was the first time I was going to fly on a 77W!!!
AF 777s have now a bad reputation here due to the 3-4-3 seating in Y, so I was happy to fly in Premium Voyageur...
Dep schedule: 10.30 am--Actual: 12.30
Arrival: 2.10 pm-----Actual: 4.00 pm
Aircraft: Boeing 777-300ER
Seat: 20K/20L PREMIUM VOYAGEUR
Flight duration: only 10hours and 40 minutes
It was during the famous AF strike, we were so afraid the flight would be cancelled... Finally, it was OK, but we departed 2 hours late...
Views of our a/c:
Then, it was high time to board...

Our seats (sorry for the quality of the pic):
Then, we finally took off, this was very powerful
IFE, quite good IMO:
Almost over Greenland:
A view in the Y cabin:
Service during this flight was horrible: due to the strike, there were only 8 F/As in the a/c instead of 15, usually.
The flight was rather uneventful, some light turbulence while over Canada, but that was it.
The Premium Voyageur class is of course more comfortable than Y, and I didn't find the seats too hard.
Now, a few pics I took in LA:
Farmer market, one of my fav place in LA...
The Grove (we went twice to the Grove):
Beverly Hills view:
View from our room:
All in all, it was a very nice stay in LA: many people dislike the city, but I found it GREAT.
Concerning my AF flight, it was average as there was no service during the flight. A shame their 777s are not equipped with mood lights though
But now, it was time to go to Hawaii!!!!!! See PART 2
