October 29, 2014. It's hard to imagine how this thing flies. I viewed it as you can see through the window at Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris. No, I did not fly it. I flew on what appeared to be a very old A-319 (which for some reason they had to spend an hour 'cleaning' before departure (it was so old it still had ashtrays and ceiling-mounted movie screens). 36 hours door to door on WestJet (OK) and Air France (brutal).
