I flew AZ last month from CDG to MXP which was maybe in the air an hour. I was pleasantly surprised, maybe because I had low expectations from reading reports on this board. The MD80 was configured like US First Class, a very nice cold lunch was served by two excellent attendants who each spoke at least four languages very well. My champagne, I mean Spumante, as the flight attendants jokingly informed me, glass was kept full. The seat was wide and quite comfortable. The plane looked older than dirt and the seats were a little threadbare, but it was spotless. All this with a short turnaround in Paris due to late arrival of the aircraft. They'll be my first choice SkyTeam connecting partner in Europe from now on.
