AirFrance%20logo.pngFlight Details


Callsign: AFR291

Departure Aerodrome: Kansai International (RJBB/KIX)

Departure Time: 0335z

Arrival Aerodrome: Paris Charles de Gaulle (LFPG/CDG)

Arrival Time: 1600z

Flight Time: 12h 20m

Aircraft: Boeing 777-200ER / F-GSSU




So we arrived at Kansai International Airport about 2 hours after the aircraft had landed, received our flight documents and headed out the aircraft. The aircraft was expected to spend around 3hours on the ground after arrival so it was left in a cold and dark state. 


Sitting on Stand F35 at Terminal 1 we started to bring her to life.



Whilst the Captain was preparing the Flight Deck I did the walk around since I was Pilot Flying for this sector, I deemed the aircraft fit to fly and headed back into the aircraft.




We departed Kansai about 13minutes late and were slowly starting to go through our step climbs. We expecting some moderate headwinds over Russia until we reached Scandinavia.




During our cruise over Western Russia we were expecting to arrive with a little bit more fuel than expected due to the winds not living up to our expectations, we contacted ATC via CPDLC and asked if we could dump some fuel.




Taken very short final into Paris's RWY26L, winds were 329 @ 13kts at this point.




On blocks in Paris after the long but pleasant flight.




Passengers in the terminal graphing our aircraft as see prepares for her next voyage to another part of the world.




Hope you liked.
