Travel Blogs from Roissy
We've had an uneventful trip till now. That we can always be thankful for.
All departures and arrivals were on time. I must say, though, Air France isn't what we are accustomed to with KLM. The plane from Minneapolis was an Airbus 340-300. The bright side was that it wasn't even half full. Imagine my euphoria when I got to move over and …
