Take off from Abu Dhabi Airport with the mighty B777-300ER bound for Manila

Flight Details

Route: Abu Dhabi (AUH) - Manila (MNL)
Flight Number: EY428
Airline: Etihad Airways
Aircraft: Boeing 777-300ER

Feel the force now.........................

My Etihad Airways stuff taken at home............ I have arrived in Manila!

Nice experience! The flight attendants were all nice and polite. The food was so-so but I don't really care. I just wanted to sit there and let the aircraft control my senses.

Ahhh, I bought my model aircraft of 77W! It costs 12 Euros, so not bad.

I will recommend Etihad Airways!

Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) with Etihad Airways (EY) Boeing 777-300ER

Just arrived in Abu Dhabi Airport fresh from Paris (not that fresh anymore though). I had to stay at the old terminal but after an hour of waiting, passengers bound for Manila were called and bussed to the newer terminal which is actually bigger and newer and more airy. How I love the hige glass windows/walls! That gives a view to the airfield and the planes going to their respective destinations.

But for me, more importantly, I have a nice view of my favourite plane, the 77W, being prepared for his flight to MNL. He's there right in front of me! This plane for the past months, I would just see it when he's taking off or landing in Manila. But now, he's here....Whoa, I can stay there and just look at it for hours without batting an eyelash, lol. What a beautiful machine!

I can't get enough of this aircraft. I consider it one of the most beautiful man-made creations!

Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Flight Details:

Route: Paris (CDG) - Abu Dhabi (AUH)
Flight Number: EY38
Seat: 18K
Airline: Etihad Airways
Aircraft: Airbus 340-500

Hummm, back in Paris Airport again. I feel bad because I was not able to see the city. Well, I saw it....when I took the train from the airport going to Gard du Nord to cacth my train to Belgium. But that's it. My first time in Paris, that was in 2002, when I applied for a visa at the Canadian Embassy. It was raining and I was only there for a day. And now, I am in Paris because I have to fly from here, lol. Anyway, I had fun updating my blog although there's no Internet so I'm just saving it on word document and just copy paste it when I got Internet connection.

The aircraft that will take me to Abu Dhabi is an Airbus 340-500.

The A340-500 was introduced as the world's longest-range commercial airliner. It made its first flight on 11 February 2002, and was certified on 3 December 2002. The A340-500 was the world's longest-range commercial airliner until the introduction of the Boeing 777-200LR in February 2006. The A340-500 can fly 313 passengers in a three-class cabin layout over 8,650 nautical miles (16,020 km). And recently, Etihad Airways become a customer.

Although aesthetically the wide-bodied Boeing planes are more beautiful than the Airbus wide-bodied aircraft, the interior of these planes is a different story. The A340's seat configuration is 2-4-2 (and so is the A330). It's more confortable.

My seatmate was a French guy who was going to work in Abu Dhabi. It's his first time to fly. So he's kinda funny. But he's charming and I was his interpreter everytime the FA's would ask him something of what he's going to eat and stuff. I also taught him how to use the IFE which is by the way a nice one.

The take off was smooth and uneventful. The FA's did their job without being too friendly nor cold. I just slept and sometimes wold talk to the French guy once in a while. It ws a night night and I could not take pics of the interior because no batteries for my camera.

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

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
