This is the first time a snack was given about 45 minutes before landing on a short haul.

Had that dry breakfast before as well as the salmon high carb bun option. Decided to try IB express instead of AF on CDG-MAD as I have had enough of the abysmal catering.

To be honest IB beats AF hands down.

- Pre-take off Juice
- Pre-meal Coffee and cookie
- Hot meal with warm tortilla and very good ham which was also warm
- fresh Fruits
- Yogurt
- fresh pastry and warm bread

multiple coffee runs with biscuits.

GVA-CDG 18:15 departure. Definitely tasted better than it looked. Also better than the mystery meal KL would have served me.

DUS-CDG No champagne (or any other adult beverages) Cabin crew looked at me like an alien when I kindly asked for a glass of champagne.

An infamous one for breakfast... but at least not among the worst.

I remember when AA was serving this meal in domestic F and we all made fun of them. Sad to see what AF has become.

Smoked Salmon everywhere even other airlines. Yuck, must be some sort of bulk discount they got.

There was the joke that the SAS name came from the catering, Salmon Always Salmon.

It is normally a pretty safe choice to serve smoked salmon, though there are lots of poor quality products around which are less appreciated choices.

Have you complined to AF? I mean if we all complain formally through the appropriate channel, things may change.

It's disappointing all the effort AF/KLM put into promoting their long-haul J product, yet at the same they keep pinching pennies on their intra-EU J, and then nickel-and-diming with concepts like Business Light fares and paid seat selection.

I have, I and others. But got a rather generic reply. Unfortunately, they don't seem to care as several reports in this thread have made it clear.

CDG-GVA 10:00 departure. Almost makes me want a wanderbox…




Probably would still look largely the same after consumption (which I declined)

Who is the chef that thinks these are appropriate meals for international travellers with different tastes. Poached egg on a cold tomatoe sauce ?!!!!!

I think the title of chef is not appropriate for this person.
