Over the last summer, I had a great opportunity to go exchange with a friend in France. I would join his family on the island of Noirmoutier, along the Western Coast of France. This trip was the first time I have ever travelled alone. It was a lot of fun to go on a trip and see what it would be like by myself.
Never having flown on Air France, nor an A380, I thought this would be a good chance to do both. I booked my flights from Washington (IAD) to Paris (CDG), Paris (CDG) to Nantes (NTE). Returning, I flew from Nantes to Paris, Paris to New York (JFK), and then from New York (JFK) to my home city.
The legs from IAD-CDG and CDG-JFK were both on Air France A380 F-HPJG. It was incredible to fly on the 380. I booked each leg on the upper deck in the rear economy section. I was excited to fly on the top deck for the first time! Travelling over to France and back I couldn't stop thinking about how much work and technology went into the aircraft. I mean think about it, its the largest plane in the world carrying 500+ people, travelling about 500mph to a city across the Atlantic. I still don't understand how planes like that get into the air, it just seems so impossible. (I mean, I do understand, but it's hard to comprehend)
Anyways, if you have the chance to book a flight on the A380 vs another plane... I would highly recommend going with the A380, its a pretty cool experience.
