Yes - CDG more chaotic than most.
No - Intra-Europe J on AF/KLM is not a joke. The service is different than what we are used to the in the States (some better aspects, some worse), but it is largely consistent with all other carriers (BA, LH, etc) for short/medium call flights within the EU.

In Europe, in J, you do get lounge access and a not bad meal on most flights (two things lacking from most domestic F/J service). In Europe,
you don't get a lot of extra leg room (just a little extra) and typically no AVOD. Most 320s/737s are 3+2 in J, not 2+2 as we know here.
