The numbers do seem to be creeping up over time don't they? I had an $899 AMS-JFK a couple of weeks back. I ignored it, then got the op-up at the gate anyway.

My experiences (typically 2 or 3 long haul j trips a year):
Food is not great, most of the time but can be good once in a while.

Don't know how you get there. The seat is identical to the 777, but the IFE is way worse - it's awful! The lower deck is very spacious and has those 3 standalone seats, but the upperdeck is cramped...

Yes Skymiles treats its members better but upgrades are hardly a way to prove this as AF/KL don't really offer any real upgrades at all. Op-ups extremely rarely sure but as FB Gold I've been upgraded...
