Air France Informative - Air France Flight Experience
NEWARK, NEW JERSEY -- Hi. I am flying EWR-CDG-BOM in Tempo Class this Saturday returning in 2 weeks. I will certainly keep an open mind and write back with a review. I do have a 2 hr layover in CDG. But with all the horror stories about the gate issues at CDG, I am packing extra clothes for a 24 hour stay in Paris.
What a wonderful Experience with Air France. All four Flights were On TIME. They retained my seat selection made on-line so I knew exactly where I was sitting. No On-line check in, but that's matter of international travel I think and not AF's fault. The IFE was working and with good choices of movies, games, trivia and music. Meals were bad on both outbound flights, but I thinks that's because it was French cuisine. The 2E terminal at CDG is hopelessly lacking some restaurants. No place to eat except 2 overprices snacks stands. Bunch of liquor and perfume shops to drop Euros.
on return BOM-CDG-EWR, Mumbai airport is a horror. lack of directions, long lines for immigrations, security with no order or decipline. Was sweating like a pig even before got on the plane.
I WILL CERTAINLY fly AF again. The IF crew was smiling and kept the bar open in the back for anyone wanting to drink a beer or two. i prefer that over them dragging the cart bumping into my knees every 1/2 hour.
