Travel Day: CDG-IAD

PARIS -- It was a sprint from one flight to another at De Gaulle after a spontaneous strike by the Air France gate agents in Toulouse delayed my flight north by two hours. The run between terminals ended shortly before this photo was taken and with minutes to spare with more than 100 passengers still left to board ten minutes before our departure time. You may recognize the aircraft in the photo, it's F-HPJA, MSN033, the first Airbus A380 delivered to Air France. The seven-plus hour flight to Dulles will be my first extended opportunity to churn through all of yesterday's A350 briefings, which were rife with the lessons gleaned from the A380 program. Much more still to come. See you on the other side of the pond.
