first flight with air france (longhaul)

i am travelling with my family (kids are 4, 8 and 9) from the US to paris. this is our first long haul flight with air france (economy, flight to the US with delta). please could you tell us if there are any things different or special (usually we fly with lufthansa)? i would like to prepare the flight as good as possible for the kids. if there is something missing, e.g. snacks i would try to bring some to reduce the travel expenses.

1. could we get special meals? one of the kids prefers vegetarian meals.

2. are there unlimited drinks?

3. how many meals we get?

4. is there inflight entertainment with monitors at every seat?

5. only movies or more?

6. are there magazines?

7. what would you recommend to bring with us?

8. are there complemtary pillows and blankets?

9. are there complemtary headphones?

10 are there complementary amenity kits (economy)?

11. are there any hidden costs?

thank you so much.

Don’t worry, English isn’t my language either. MMB is “manage my booking”

we booked delta but the flight is operated from air france. so we have no log in to the air france website. where can we order the vegan meal for my kid?

You can probably use the same PNR on the Air France website to manage your booking.

The same PNR (6 digit code) works for Air France too.

There should be a button for that in the “Review/Modify” reservations page. There’s a “meals on board” section on that page. But having said that, there’s always a vegetarian choise on AF long haul.
