Air France v. Air Kuwait Air

I booked a business class seat on 2-hour intra-Europe flight on Kuwait Air. Now I am wondering if I made a mistake. Air France would have cost $100 more, but from browsing around I'd see I'd get a hot meal plus wine -- Kuwait is a dry carrier! On the other hand, by flying the Kuwait airline it looks like I'll be in a "real" business class seat, rather than the "larger coach" seat common in intra-Europe C class.

Any thoughts? I know I shouldn't care for a 2-hour flight, but figured you fellow addicts would understand.

You could get a VERY nice meal for that one hundred dollar difference once the plane lands. I'd stick with the Kuwait flight, especially since you think you will get a nicer seat.

Well, I stuck with Kuwait Air, but not sure I would do it again. They lost my bag and I didn't get back until I left my destination!

Also, the service, food and seat were just so-so at best. My subsequent short-hop Y hop on Luftahnsa seemed more pleasant by comparison.
