It clearly must be, because like most things when first launched by Air France it doesn't work properly.

When I launch the application I get a screen telling me that the page cannot be displayed for whatever reasons, that I should try the refresh button (there isn't any), only the three buttons on the bottom do appear (Paramètres, Info, s'identifier). I can use Parameters to put in my FB number and PIN, but thenI cannot change the language, instead I get an error message saying that there is no network (which is wrong, as both safari and my emails work, so there is a network connection).

Great, so they have finally launched an iPhone app a loooong time after other airlines have done it, and then it doesn't even work on all iPhones.

I have downloaded and used (with different degrees of frequency) 174 other iPhone apps. I NEVER had this problem. Here comes Air France, and of course there is a bug - this is not to say that all iPhone apps are bug-free, but only to say that my phone has no recurring problem of crashing apps. And that I do have higher expectations from one of the world's leading airlines than I would from some hobby freelance developer. They had enough time to get it right, they are late anyway, so a little more time for making it more bug-free would have been OK.

AF has improved a number of things recently, but it still feels like a somewhat chaotic bug-ridden sloppy organization. Why, just why, can't they get something right from the beginning? Do things with less negligence, try to design something without bugs? This "faire les choses à moitié" really is annoying.
Which version of the I-phone do you have ? I have the I-phone 3G (16Go) and it works well without bugs (I tried everything but check-in function)
