This is very unlikely to happen this year or even next year, thus rendering the announcement a pointless PR puff. Such a route is not sustainable when used only by a handful of French (and maybe a...

As I have understood it France will be off limits to all but French and eventually EU (and possibly UK later in the year) citizens for the rest of 2020 as the GOF tries to manage surging variants....

I flew to JFK in Première yesterday (3 out of 4 seats occupied) with the usual superb crew and service. The mezzanine lounge is just fine, if sparsely occupied. They (AF P lounge staff) said the...

AF P is very strong and profitable on the US routes. JFK and LAX in particular. The clientele is largely recession proof so whatever the immediate future holds the market is there. The company has...

The A380 first cabin has been in my experience usually quite full on AF6 CDG JFK. The night flight AF7 JFK CDG is less appealing for obvious reasons although the service remains as superb as always....

Just had a delightful mail from AF ROC informing me that my flight BOM CDG will be operated by Hifly Malta. No option of traveling on the KL flight or on Jet Airways code share to Paris was given....

As an update I have just heard that the normal delay for delivery outside Paris is now 3 days minimum and 5 or even 6 days as the norm. In fact my bag was only prise en charge late this afternoon so...

Luggage Armageddon at CDG

On a short trip of two days from MRS to Scotland my bag managed not to make the connection both times, with AF beating a record for not delivering my bag at destination on consecutive days. Quite an...

Insofar as it relates to my original post the treatment of off duty crew and paying passengers is necessarily subject to different rules. Employees receive as part of their 'package' certain travel...

It would be odd to reduce crew numbers! In any case an attempt to do so would lead to an immediate strike. In any case the problem of off-duty PNC conventions in the sky is unaffected by crew...

Orbitmic makes the point perfectly. I realise of course that these are not real problems but it nonetheless is oddly irritating to be the last thing on the crew's mind. As much as anything it is the...

FYI Loo situation CDG 2F Gates 21-35

Horrible to have to point out that there are only two stalls available in this whole lounge due the eternal travaux. Consequently long waits and somewhat squalid. The loos upstairs are totally non...

I would add only one point to orbitmic's interesting remarks. The divider between the two central seats does not run the entire length of the unit. It extends only the length, more or less, of the...

It is probably shoulder height, according to the photos in the press package. It is very similar to the LH/LX divider (nb that LH/LX do not curtain off their central seats). The point I was making...

They are identical to the window seats, with a small divider that can be raised and with curtains on the aisles. When the curtains are closed on both sides it creates a private space. There is no...

AF/KLM receive no government aid. EU rules strictly prohibit government subsidies to airlines. The merged group has been standing on its own for quite a long time. Allowing for the volatile nature of...

AF's record of cabin renewal is amongst the poorest in the industry. Last week I was on a 773 to Atlanta with a NEV2 (or even 1!) cabin. VERY shabby. It will take AF management the better part of 3...
