Arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport and flight to Paris

I have just arrived at the Abu Dhabi International Airport! Nice flight from Manila to Abu Dhabi. I enjoyed it a lot especially that it was my first time fly on my favourite aircraft, the Boeing 777-300ER! Nice experience!

I have a nice impression of the airline and the airport. It's my first also in the Arabian region and I am fascinated! The airport is not that big but it's getting there. It's a bit crowded but for sure better than Manila airport.

I will spend some 5 hours here and wait for my flight to Paris and then take a train going to Belgium.

I'll do some updates the moment I arrive in Belgium. I've also taken some pictures of the aircraft and also the airport but I still don't know how to upload them.

Welcome to Abu Dhabi Airport, United Arab Emirates

Route: Abu Dhabi (AUH) - Paris (CDG)
Flight Number: EY31
Seat: 22A
Airline: Etihad Airways
Aircraft: Airbus 330-200

Pictures: View of the Swiss Alps

And I arrived in Paris!
But the journey is yet over. I still have to go to the gare du nord tarin station to catch my Thalys train going to the Belgian capital, Brussels...and then from Brussels another train to my main destination: Leuven

First time to fly Philippine Airlines with Airbus 320

Manila Airport Terminal 2 (me, my sister, and my father waiting for our plane while my mother took the photo)

Philippine Airlines

Date: March 2006
Dep: Manila Ninoy Aquino International (MNL)
Boarding Time: 1920
Dep Time:
Load: 100%
Seat: Aisle
Class: Economy
Aircraft: Airbus 320
Weather during take off: Sunny
Arr: Cebu Mactan International (CEB)
Gate: Monogate
Weather during landing: Sunny

This is actually a gift of my eldest sister for my parents and to our youngest sister. I paid for the hotel and my sister paid for the airfare.


I haven't had the chance to fly Philippine Airlines (PR) before. I started to travel by plane in 2001 when I finally was able to conquer my fear of flying. But that was with British Airways.


Flying PR means chekcing in at the Terminal 2 of NAIA. So another first for me as the first time I traveled, I checked in at Terminal 1, a shabby and old terminal which handles foreign airlines.

Terminal 2 is better compared to Terminal 1. I like the design, basic and minimalist, but it serves its purpose.


I was quite excited as well because it's my first time to fly with members of my family. I have been planning this before. Everytime I fly especially during take off, I would imagine my family with me telling them how I like take off and stuff, lol.


I was worried about my mother because it would be her first time to fly and my youngest sister as well. My father had flying experiences already years ago so it was not a new thing for him.


My sister was seated behind me and me at the row with my parents. I did not have the wondow seat this time as my mother occupied that place. I was happy just looking at my parents inside the plane. What I wanted, it all materialised after all. When the plane was preparing to take off, I was talking to my mother just so she would not feel nervous. But when the engine started to roar and the aircraft started to move and we're pushed back against our seats, she said: "Dios ko". I was happy though and I was like a kid and during take off I smiled at my sister and my father told me to stop behaving like that or else other passengers would think it was my first time to fly. Ahhh, I did not really! It was not my first time to fly after all! 


It was a nice flight and we enjoyed it even if was only 40 minutes. But it's fun!


Philippine Airlines

Date: March 2006
Dep: Cebu Mactan Airport (CEB)
Load: 100%
Seat: Aisle
Class: Economy
Aircraft: Airbus 330
Arr: Manila Ninoy Aquino International (MNL)


We spent two days in Cebu. My first time in Cebu as well!


On our way back, we flew Airbus 330. We're delayed for 2 hours I think. But it's OK we were not in a hurry and we just enjoyed chilling out at the airport.


When we were about to board the plane, she got nervous when she saw the plane. She said it was too big and that alone made her nervous. I told her there are bigger planes still, hehehehehe.


This time I sat next to my sister. So again, during take off, I got to see her reaction. It was fun especially that we did not really have a nice take off and right after we lifted off the ground, we got bothered by some turbulence and the aircraft was not stable. I almost puked.


So, with this journey, I had some firsts:


-first with PR

-first with T2

-first with Airbus 320

-first time to visit Cebu and the Cebu Mactan Airport

-first time to fly with members of the family



There you go, a journey that was simply fun!
