Air France 353 was “supposed” to leave at 4:40pm. Would you believe 5:30? How about 5:45?
After waiting in line for de-icing, the flight crew noticed something wrong with a circuit breaker so it was back to the gate. Much confering and scratching of heads until it was finally decided that we could take off with only 3 engines providing warmed air to the cabin.
The Captain said he would try to make up the time coming across the Atlantic but he fell just a little short. Sailed into Charles De Gaulle airport and made the slow taxi in. I missed my connection to Zurich by 10 minutes. No problem, they booked me on the next flight – hopefully my bag will join me.
Sitting in the Air France lounge having an espresso. Can’t afford the internet connection so these will be loaded in a group.
Just my luck, France banned smoking in public places starting last week.
