AF257 Espace Première - SIN-CDG Jan 6

I was looking forward to travelling in P with AF, but this flight was a great disapointment. Nothing could have been more remote from a first class experience, and I've had many better business class flights (including on AF).

Despite the simplified menu (no appetizers, choice of only two main courses) whose point (apart from saving pennies to AF) is, I guess, to go to bed asap, the supper lasted for more than 2 hours. The crew was totally inattentive: there was nobody in the cabin to welcome pax for example, and people had to figure out by themselves how the seat works (or does'nt work, for those seats that had a problem). Despite being seated next to each other, Mrs. Albireo and myself were served separately in a random order, at different times. So much for "A la carte". Champagne was very good but again, served only to me by a rushed F/A -- my partner was never offered a welcome glass. Using the call button in the seat would not help. The Burgundy had a cork taste, which can happen, but then again you would expect the bottle to have been sampled by the crew. No apologies (and no offer for a replacement) when I returned the glass.

Night buffet? What buffet? Never seen it. Nor did any pax see a bottle of water for the night.

The poached eggs at breakfast were hard and barely edible, while the bread served at dinner and breakfast was spongious at best. Coffee is of the instant powder type.

Never believe all that glossy commercial literature from AF -- Première is, at best, a mediocre business class service with flat beds, which you had to set-up by yourself (at least on this flight).

I'm not surprised at all with your remarks. I've had similar experiences on this route - 4 flights in 2006 of ever descending quality. The dinner service out of SIN doesn't even come close to a First Class experiece, and, with the exception of one starter course and a couple of wine options, the choices are identical to the Business Class offerings. Mind you, this is supposed to be the route where AF is competing head to head with SQ's fabulous new F product on the B77W.

Doubling my post from before, but this is vindicating me when I was claiming : "Who in their right mind would want to fly AF when you can fly SQ".
Sorry Mr.Spinetta , you may be making tons of Money for the time being ( Thanks to Sabena,Swissair, and Air Afrique's bankrupcies) , but this can only last for so long..

What to expect?

I don't have a menu to contribute...yet. I'm flying AF for the first time in a few weeks, AF27 IAD-CDG, in affaires. Our flight doesn't depart IAD until 10:20pm, so I'm wondering what to expect mealwise.

ITA booking shows, "Air France Flight AF27 on an Airbus A330 (jet) in business class (meal, breakfast)", which I assume means a meal when we board, before the overnight, and then breakfast? Or do we need to have dinner before heading to the airport?

Thanks in advance!

Mike

Given this late departure time from IAD, I'm pretty sure the regular dinner service will be substituted with a shorter, and lighter, supper service. I don't know whether this is compensated by a more extensive breakfast service.

It looks like Thonon has replaced Evian as water provider : on my last long-haul flight and in the lounge 2D.

Also, there is no more Bailey's Cream, it is replaced by a Whisky Liqueur
