This fall/winter I'm doing a RTW trip. I will fly on AF (ARN-CDG-JFK, A320/B773ER), NZ (SFO-AKL-SYD, B772ER/B763) and BA (SYD-BKK-LHR-ARN, B744/A320).

What can I expect in terms of service (free alcohol?), entertainment (AVOD?), and comfort?

Please share all your experiences!

How are you getting from New York to San Francisco?

We will fly to Chicago, take a bus to Des Moines, then rent a car there and drive to San Diego. From there we will take the train with a stop in LA to San Fransisco. Should be a good trip  Smile

I suppose you are flying Y ? on AF ARN-CDG, drink service (including alcohol) and cold meal if your flight is during breakfast/lunch/dinner time. All free. On AF CDG-JFK, free champagne for aperitif and free wine or other alcohols with the main meal (lunch or dinner). The food is generally great in Y on long-haul flights. Free amenity kit (towelette, ear plugs, eyes-shadow, headset for IFE). No IFE on your ARN sector. AVOD-IFE on your 77W. Note that AF is currently improving its IFE to have a better choice of movies, TV shows, radio channels, games. It will be a similar system to the KLM's one. Enjoy your trip

Thanks a lot! Yes, I will be flying Y all the way. Good to see that they have AVOD on the 77W, I did not expect that. Amenity kits are a big plus as well!

On the BA flight from Sydney you will have bar round, hot meal with wine, tea/coffee and before landing some sort of sandwiches, tea/coffee, drinks.
From Bangkok you will have bar round, hot meal with wine, tea/coffee and hot breakfast 2 hours before landing into London. On this flight there are "tuck boxes" in the galley noodles, chocolate etc and of course on both flights bar open all flight.
As for IFE, AVOD (if its working and its improving all the time) or 18 channels if not.
On the European flight I'm afraid I don't know but I imagine some sort of sandwich and drink, no ife though.
Hope that helps.

On the LHR-ARN sector you will just get the deli box, which includes a sandwich with something to drink. No IFE on that short hop.

I think we are doing a combination between US and UA. US from LGA to DCA (my friend has never been to D.C. so he will at least get to see the Washington monument and the Capitol building from a distance), and then UA to ORD. Wasn't much more expensive than a non-stop flight and I really like DCA. Since I'm a SK Euro Bonus member it's a plus to go with Star Alliance.

That's an improvment from when I flew them on LHR-BKK last time. Also looking forward to try their new IFE system. Good job BA!
