Big Bird - Not Quite Hermès!
I like aeroplanes and my biggest regret in life is never having flown Concorde :-( Concorde was such a beautiful aeroplane and nothing else quite has that cachet.

However, a few years ago along came the new Airbus A380. I was not sure I would like to fly on such a big plane, but now that I have seen a few at airports they are not so intimidating anymore! I thought I would have to go somewhere exotic like Singapore to be able to fly on an A380 but no!! Air France have launched

a special offer to celebrate the arrival of their new A380 and they are offering an amazing price on summer weekend flights between Paris CDG and London Heathrow - the price is unbelievable. How could I resist? I managed to book a flight London to Paris and back both on an A380, so I can fulfill this ambition, but not only that I get to go to Paris and "you know where" as well - I think I just died and went to heaven!
