Note: "Varga Girl" arriving from London and passing over Sepulveda Boulevard (and the famous "In & out burger place") for rwy 24R as the sun was slowly setting on L.A. Lucky me to have had such a warm and marvelous weather while fires were still...
Note: Second daily flight (out of three) for Air France. Much nicer from the outside than their -300's (too long). Large tube (fuselage), meaning more comfort than with some competitors (in business class, though, you have three central seats...
Note: Just a few minutes after her sistership B-16705 passed me by, this one with special scheme (celebrating their new 777-300ER) followed her on short final rwy 24R. Exceptional situation : two EVA Air777-300ER behind each other (just ONE...
Note: Nose section of the aircraft. Seats 01A and 01B, new business seats. 01A is in the maximum reclined position. They are very comfortable in a "seating" position (comfort equal to a club armchair) although they badly (!) miss the classical...
Note: Nose section of the aircraft : this is now an additional business cabin (L'Espace Affaires) instead of the first class that was there before. Admire the wide TV screens and notice the triangular table in the middle. All business seats have...
Note: Inflight from Paris to Miami. Big change in the upper deck section of the 747's since the reconfiguration of the cabins: what used to be a cosy, quiet, classy business cabin has now been turned into an additional economy class cabin.
Note: close up on nose while lined up on rwy 12 for take off. Look at the reflection in the fuselage and observe the keynotes of rwy 12. By the way, you can't ignore that Miami is a AA-hub so many AA planes there are over there.
