London Heathrow to Paris Degaulle
Today we boarded and departed the gate on time. Unfortunately we are sitting on the tarmac on a flight delay because of fog in Paris.
I hate when they do this. I know they want to be ready to go but it would be much nicer if we could sit in the warm terminal instead of out on the cold runway for an indefinate period of time.
It is now 7.20 and we have been waiting for 30 minutes. The captain promises a departure time within 10 or 15 minutes but who knows.
I am glad I got an exit row window seat because I have the extra legroom. One thing I never understood is why on some jets the exit row window seat cushion is different and lower than all the rest. It's a bit hard!
Todays flight is no frills, everything is for pay, even the beverages. I wonder if I have to pay to use the toilet.
After a 1 hour delay we were on our way and arrive at Paris CDG at 9.30am. I guess delays are built into the schedule because we nearly arrived on time!
I am in Paris now, waiting for luggage. I already called the Yellow Vans Service thgat I pre booked with and they are ready to pick me up. Let hope everything continues to go so smoothly!
This is the point of the blog where I shift from London to Paris. After this post, I wil be posting to:
I will add a couple posts here on my final thoughts, tips and some more good shopping experiences.
