I fly Air France from Montreal to Paris and connect to points beyond probably three to five times a year (above my regular flying on BA and other carriers) and I, for one, would never suggest that AF is turning into an American company. Unlike my experience with American air carriers, Air France's employees still have no ability to claim ownership over problem solving for issues that come up from time to time which affect passengers. That inability strikes me as a most European characteristic and I would most certainly welcome AF becoming more "American" in that regard.

Sometimes a Coca-Cola is just a Coca-Cola, without a side serving of "endless cultural capitulation".
