Our flight today begins with a short drive into Los Angeles International Airport. We stop briefly at the In-n-Out Burger to watch the planes landing, before making our way to the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT).
We check in at the Air France area and then make our way to the TSA Security checkpoint. From there we head airside towards our gate where our aircraft is waiting – the huge Airbus A380 that will take us across the Atlantic this evening.
We suffer a delay of around an hour due to a specific security threat that has been received to our flight. We have to wait while FBI sniffer dogs search the aircraft, but thankfully nothing is found and we’re able to eventually board. We take the escalator to the second floor to be able to board the upper deck of the huge A380. We board through the forward doors making our way through the aircraft’s business class and premium economy to our section of economy at the rear of the aircraft, taking our seat in seat 93L.
We soon begin our pushback as the sun sets over California, and taxi out with a police escort to runway 24L. We make a beautiful departure into the sunset getting a stunning view of Los Angeles lit up below. We make our way across the US towards Canada under darkness, getting views of many major cities. We cross the coast into the Atlantic just north of Labrador City, Canada, before passing to the south of Greenland where the sun rises.
We get some great views of the contrails forming as we cruise at a level of 39,000ft towards Ireland. We cross the Irish Sea towards South Wales, making a left turn towards London before turning right and crossing the English Channel towards France.
We commence our descent into a rainy Paris, saying goodbye to the beautiful weather above the clouds and hello to a gloomy rainy day. We make a trademark hard landing on runway 26L at Charles-de-Gaulle. We taxi into the beautiful Terminal 2E before disembarking and making our way towards flight connections for our onward flight back to the UK.
