On board the summer only, seasonal charter Corsair Boeing 747-400 which operates once weekly on behalf of Air France & Air Corsica during the summer season to take the extra capacity of passengers between the mainland and the French island of Corsica. The entire aircraft is an economy flight, so I chose to take a seat in the upstairs cabin in the first class seats which were no extra cost and it was my first time upstairs on an aircraft! The seating was fantastic, so much room and great entertainment system, could easily have sat up there for a long flight. The flight was about half an hour late departing Paris due to the long time it took to actually board all the passengers. The arrival in Ajaccio is stunning, a fantastic “Circle To Land” approach shows some beautiful views of the coast line and mountainous terrain across the island. But overall a fantastic flight on such a legendary aircraft.

One thing I will add, is that although upstairs is a great experience, for filming and photography its not great because of the space between the bigger seats and the window and the tilted walls make for a difficult view of the wing.
This aircrafts first flight was on 23rd October 1992 and it was delivered to United Airlines with reg. N188UA on 4th December of the same year, making the aircraft older than me! Still classic and still going very strong! Incredible flight 🙂
*As always by Full Flight I mean the videos includes EVERY part of the flight from Boarding until Disembarkation! Not literally a 2 hour video of nothing. If you want that, you’re at the wrong channel.
