Nice flight, with no turbulence, and a beautiful sunrise!

Review of Lucasdu21 about the flight Corsair 910 between Paris Orly and Réunion on 09/07/2012 in Economy
Lucasdu21 SS / CRL ORY / RUN
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

We arrived at the airport four hours early to make sure we wouldn't miss the flight. All my family and I were very excited at the idea of getting on a 747 for the first time. Before boarding, I took many photos of our bird, but also of its siblings on the ground….

Once inside the 747, I searched for my seat. Luckily for me, this flight was before Corsair reorganized their cabins. I was then able to enjoy the trip on the top deck, where the seats were arranged in 3-3. My seat was adequately comfortable. As for the legroom, the pitch was large for my small size, but for bigger people, it would be a little less comfortable.

We pushed back and took off with no wait. The traffic was calm at Orly that night. Throughout the flight and during takeoff we found that being seated on the top deck of the 747 gave us some advantages: not much noise (a lot less than on the bottom deck).
The meal was served after one or two hours of flight.

Since I was eleven years old at the time, I got the kids’ menu, which was very good.

On the menu: cordon bleus, pasta carbonara, an exotic fruits salad for dessert, and a lemony smoked salmon for appetizer.

Then came the moment where I listened to radio Corsair, read magazines, or watched a movie on the screen situated over the seat three rows in front of ours. Since the plane had not yet been renovated, it didn't yet have in-flight entertainment systems (individual screens). Behind us was the bar and we were on the first row when we went upstairs. This was very practical because you didn't have to get up to get something to drink.

After about four hours of sleep (extraordinary for me in an airplane), I went on doing the diverse activities. I toured the airplane, going to the cabin in front to the deck below, which was very interesting for the way it was shaped. After that, I went back to my seat, walking past the very nice crew members on the way.

We arrived on time at the sunny Réunion and retrieved our luggage with no wait, very quickly.

Note: the temperature inside the airplane was adequate. Neither hot, nor hot—very pleasant.
