Prologue:

After arriving from CAI in wreck after a sleepless night, I still have enough energy to enjoy the FCT. Was it up to my expectations? Read on !

As soon as I have left the plane from CAI the driver was waiting for me. Took my luggage to put it in the truck.

As soon as settled in in the very comfy car I was asked where I wanted to go. FCT or regular FCL. If you decide to go to the FCT the driver will only drop you to the immigration and you will have to make your way to the lounge. Once you leave immigration make a left and keep straight and you'll see cabs and then you will see the FCL. Thanks FT for the tip !

It was my first time in the FCT I have been to the FCL back in 2011. So it was good to check out how the Terminal stands out.

You have to take the elevator to the reception.

From there I would collect another BP to get a proper LH stub. While the agent checks my if I'm entilted to use the lounge and got it confirmed she told me to proceed to the lounge and will bring the BP to my seat.

The cold buffet. Good but quite far from what you can find in the FC Lounge with AF.

Let's take a closer look to the hot buffet.

As a meat fan I can't pass up the stunning beef from here.

After such a treat it was already time to board. I was fetched by the agent from the lounge that we are boarding.

Down to another ride to the plane !

photo 640x640 3

photo 640x640 3

I can't complain...

After a short ride the driver dropped me in front of the plane and we took the stairs to reach the plane.

Such a lovely cabin... But it does the job well for such a short flight.

My seat

photo 640x640 3

From my seat I could still see the car.

photo 640x640 3

SFO777 I was thinking about you !

The tray was handed out I took it solely fo rthe purpose of the report and ate few bites. So so.

Summary:

I'm delighted to have experienced the FCT. Yes, it's nothing like AF FCL but it's on my top 3.
The flight itself, is a regular one for a short hop.

    Merci pour ce TR

    Un passage sympathique au FCT

    La cuisine est celle d'une bonne brasserie

    La cave est d'un bon niveau et même excellent pour les amateurs de whisky

    A bord un plateau qui ne fait pas envie, [Mode Beauf On]contrairement à la voisine

    A bientôt pour la Suisse

    Salut Thomas!
    Une prestation salon pas mal du tout et de bonne facture. Comme tu le dis ce n’est pas au niveau du salon P AF mais tellement mieux que ce qu’offrent d’autres!
    Le transfert en Porsche c’est quand même la classe ?
    Merci pour le partage!

    Salut Thomas,

    Fantastic TR with great details of your LH FCT. You brought me memories from my visit many years ago.

    Extensive buffet with tempting choices,. Great bath experience. Unfortunately I did not request one when I visited so I have to make a return for that one of these days. ;)

    Thanks for your sacrifice to take the meal aboard for the team. :P

    And thank you for sharing this memorable experience. See you later.

    A pleasure ;)

    Bon...Ce reportage donne bien faim !
    Ce salon est clairement sympathique..
    A bord, la prestation culinaire pour ce vol business "Europe" assez court, est très correcte. La cabine est lumineuse. (Merci Jérôme;)
