Promotional return flight with Air France to celebrate the beginning of operations with the A380 airplanes.
Special price of 79 euros for the roundtrip, including a checked bag and the possibility of choosing your seat on the Air France website. What more can you ask?
The choice of seats by a window behind the upper bridge was respected. Take-off and landing were perfect.
The only problem was a considerable delay on the return flight to Paris. This was due to two malfunctions and not entirely Air France’s fault.
1) Boarding had to be paused for a long time because Heathrow’s computer system crashed, forcing the crew to manually count more than 500 passengers…. A drink was offered on-board while we waited.
2) We arrived late at CDG and there was only one agent to check more than 500 identity documents, which naturally caused a long wait. The bags also took a very long time to arrive….
We ended up missing our train to the provinces. Our reservations were not reimbursable, so we had to buy new tickets….
We won’t hold a grudge against them, though, because it will remain a great memory! It’s a pity that, to my knowledge, Air France has continued offering this experience….
