Hello,

She is so big that they have already lost a crewman !
Drunken in a corner behind a container, or lost at sea ?
Will we know ?

Let see what the future will bring as info ?

Have a nice day.

Sadly, there was a crewman lost overboard in the English Channel, approx 40 Km from the Isle of Wight on the evening of January 1st.
French and British coastguards gave up the search for him on January 2nd after searching for many hours.
The BBC story is here:

The CMA CGM Otello is the first "jumboised" ship to join CMA-CGM's FAL (French Asia Line) service. The current FAL vessels (CMA CGM Ravel, Baudelaire, Bizet, Balzac, Debussy) will be moved to CMA's North China Express (NCX) service).
