IAD, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA -- I wanted to share with you the following about Air France.
We had a very bad day on 7/13/2004. We arrived at Washington Dulles Airport at 3:20pm for flight #39 on 07/13/04. And there was this huge line in front of the AirFrance check-in. It was 4:05 pm when we got to the counter. When our bags were
weighted, we were told that we needed to pay $400 for the overweight. My wife and I are students in the USA and $400 is tons of money for us. We said that we don't actually need to take all stuff in the bags and
we told them that we wanted to take the heavy stuff out from the bags and have them re-weighted. It was not going to take us more than 1 minute if they had let us do that. They told us check in for the flight
is closed and we had to pay $400 in order to fly. They talked to us for 10-15 minutes arguing that they can't do it. While they were talking to us there were still some passengers in line who were checking-in. We tried to get some of our stuff from one of the bags. And our ticket was canceled. And my wife could not fly. We were told that next available date to fly is August 4th 2004.

My son and I had tickets to fly Air France from Italy to Dublin. when we arrived at the airport my son didn't have his passport so a. they wouldn't let him on and b. they told him he needed another ticket. He then paid for a one way ticket to Dublin, retrieved his passport and we linked up in Dublin.

when it came time to return, he went to check in and Air France said, because he didn't use the first half of his ticket, they canceled the return ticket. so he had to purchase another one-way back to Italy.
1. we were never told the return ticket would be canceled
2. if so we would have purchases a much cheaper round trip ticket in Italy
3. I purchased a ticket to Dublin and the return flight back. they wouldn't let him on the 'to' part, and I now want some level of a refund
Friends, if you want to arrive with your baggage, don't fly with Air France.
Because if you do, when they lose it, you'll then enter the hell of their specially-designed 'no customer service' routine. You know the game:
- you call the tel #, it connects, then you wait 15 minutes to speak to someone, who can't help and sends you to the website
- the website tells you your baggage is lost (thanks for that!) and you have to submit more written notification to Air France
- Air France local sales office deny all knowledge and tell you to call the #
Repeat until you have a heart attack or give up exhausted. Air France don't care which. Really - they don't.
My baggage was last seen Dec 22 in Paris. May it rest in peace, along with the family Christmas presents it contained, and test coursework...

This really is an airlines that should be shut down from all the complaints about lost luggage that I am seeing. It seems to be a very poorly and rudely run operation.
I flew from Boston to Paris on the 18th of December, with a connecting flight to Basel, which was grounded due to the storm. Eventually I made it to Basel, filed a missing luggage form with the Basel Air France service department. I was told that the suitcase would be delivered to my hotel in Lucerne. It never was. Then I was told that it would be delivered to the boat I was to catch in Basel on the 20th. This did not occur. I was told that my bag would catch up with me during my voyage. This did not happen.
I am back in the United States now, still without my suitcase or any word as to when I might expect it. What makes the matter worse is that Air France is not answering their phones, claiming to be too busy!
I will never use Air France again and will certainly advise everyone I know not to book flights with them. They appear to be a very shabby organization.

Is it acceptable to wait for nearly 2 hours to complete a baggage drop after having checked in on line - air France think so. Having completed the baggage drop within the required time, is it acceptable that the bags never get on the flight - air France think so. Is it acceptable that although there is a 6 hour period for the bags to be sent from london to paris to get to the mauitius connect flight they do nothing - air France think so. Is it acceptable for them to do nothing with the bags for 48 hours even when they have been informed that the bags have not arrived at destination - air France think so. Is it acceptable to offer no compensation at the destination for the delay - air France think so
is it acceptable to take the airline to the small claims court for payment for service not received - I think so
