I had to hop over to Paris last Monday and managed to get a last minute Air France flight.
The aircraft however, wasn’t an Airbus (as Air France flights usually are) nor a Boeing, but a Fokker.
A Fokker 100 that is.
An excerpt of a phone call between myself and Pépé:
Me: I flew on a Fokker today. I’ve never heard of the Fokker.
Pépé: I have. Was it a big Fokker?
Me: Not really, more like a small and old Fokker.
Pépé: You know, those Fokkers have been around for a while now.
Why would you call a plane a Fokker?
