For a change, I have abandoned the big US air carriers (Delta, United and American) for Norwegian. It seems a better choice if you fly like me: no bags, late in the evening, selective touch-screen menu ordering, and 30% cheaper.
The other thing is that Norwegian flies the modern Boeing 878 aircraft that keep the air pressure close to the sea level. Which means no dry nose / headache, less jet lag.
The American tails at Los Angeles. Thanks, but no thanks.
Modern wings are curvy!
This is my Norwegian Boeing 787-8. Edvard Munch on the tail. (SCREAM)
The head section looks like a red condom. But it works!
While most of the LAX airport looks like a ghetto, the international section, or the Tom Bradley Terminal, is modern and efficient.
Finally, in Paris. A short stay at the Hyatt before submerging myself into la France profonde.

I took this photo on the way back from Sha Tin. The cafe with glass walls – 2015.
San Francisco – Tokyo (Narita)
The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) at Panmunjom was not as bad as they try to depict it. The North Korean guards looked sleepy and the South Korean soldiers theatrical.
The flight back to Hong Kong was on the newest “Dreamliner” Boeing, by Ethiopian Airlines.
The smoke box
For crossing the immense Pacific ocean nothing beats the old trusty Boeing 747. (The newer Boeings and Airbuses are slower!)
