This was CDG to CPH it was described as Eggs on Ground beef. It was meh, a huge downgrade compared to the last meal of shrimps on Curry Mashed potatoes. The mixed Veggies on the left looked unappealing was actually quite tasty.

CDG - BSL and back


I was the only pax in J on the way back and was proactively offered champagne on the way back but declined, the bottle seemed half empty and without a proper cap, I doubt there was any sparkle left.

Those are some sad looking snacks for a J flight...

Does it count as a domestic flight? Iirc GVA still gets 5(15)xp and meal service despite being technically a french airport.

It's international from an XP perspective.

Copenhagen to Paris, noon departure.





Perfectly adequate for a short hop, and not bad in the flavour just needed some salt. With a few glasses of champagne to round it of.

I do wonder why there is not a better option for the bread, but maybe the point is to have warm bread bring butter and cheese up to a better temperature for eating?

Actually, the same meals are offered whether it's a flight from PAR to AMS, or PAR to IST. This is what I find off. IST should have proper catering, not this which is more suited to shorter flights such as GVA, BHX or FRA, for example.

Agree, have had this same meal CDG to BCN, althought probably it was without the mushrooms and the nuts.

I guess the difference is the pralinť, but poor IMHO.

I hope the solution is not to “enhanced” the meals of the shorter segments.

Sorry if I'm repeating what I wrote elsewhere (or even possibly here) but I find easyJet so much better these days that I have no motivation to book AF or KL at the moment. On Easy the service is much friendlier and the catering much better than it used to be. From their BoB menu you can now have a snack, sandwich or hot ciabatta and a drink for CHF9.95. If you have a beer or wine, it goes up to CHF12.00. It actually makes a lot more sense to buy something from the Easy menu than get anything from the airport (sandwiches were Ä9.80 in SVQ and AGP airports recently).

Must be easy Switzerland.

Whenever I fly with easyJet around here in the northwest of the continent, the crews are severly lacking. Feels like flying with a bunch of teenagers on job experience. Other airlines have young crews as well, but they present much more proffessional, even LCCs.
I also hate the fact that you can't change seat even for payment once it has been autoassigned to you.

Yes, it was indeed easyJet Switzerland (DS), although one of my sectors was on easyJet mainline (U2) on BRS=GVA and it was ok. But the DS crews are the best, IMO, as is their BoB trolley. Maybe you were on the third easyJet variation - easyJet Europe (EC) - which I haven't tried yet. But so far, I am more pleased with DS and U2 than I am with AF or KL.

Nice, they finally put a food description card there! Had the same on my flight to CPH. 6/10 for me. The Curry Shrimp dish I had last month was by far the best one.
