PARIS TO NICE
Please don’t fall over in shock… It’s not the A350. What we have here is the humble little workhorse that is a 16 year old Airbus A318-111. A small, nimble and excellent piece of kit flying on a hugely popular route. Air France operate 8 daily flights from Paris to Nice and EasyJet a further 5. Not surprising really - who doesn’t want to go to the beautiful French Riviera?
It was quite a bumpy one - the nature of the little beast combined with a 40 kts headwind at cruise and the changing of the scenery meant that seat belt signs were kept fastened for most of the short flight and we were guided into the busy airport and to the gate by the excellent ground, tower and approach over the coast, eating 'Tatas and French Toast and sound of 2 CFM International CFM56-5B8/P units to keep us company.
