Thinking about going to Eurodisney next year and I've been pricing hotels and flights etc.

I'm sick of flying 737's, especially 737-300's. So I'd prefer to avoid Easyjet.

Would be nice to go with Air France on a CRJ-700 and possibly a EMB-145:

The trouble is, Easyjets cheapest price for three people is about £150, while Air France is about £330.

Does anybody know if Air France do offers from time to time?

What is Air France service like, do you get a meal etc.
I know their flight times are probably better for us.

Can anyone think of any other reasons to fly with Air France.
I'm trying to sell the idea to my better half.

Thanks in advance,

Well, dont know about the prices and such, but easyJet only offer 1 flight a day using the 737-700.
Air France offers 3 Daily flights now all using the CRJ-700, with some weekend services on ERJ145. The AF services are operated on their behalf by Brit Air with a/c in AF colours.
I would go with AF probably as the CR7 isnt exactly a common a/c type at NCL yet, although it is now more prominent with the AF flights

I flew the route on an EMB-145 and I hated it!! Cabin was very very cramped with config of 2-1. We were late for a connection at CDG and the cabin crew were extremely unhelpful and rude!!! We did get a meal...well we got a snack...it was a sandwhich but it was very nice. It was certainly a different experience from the typical flights on 737's etc... but not something I would consider doing again as I was very claustraphobic.

Unlike NCL, I actually liked the EM4 (have flown it a few times, normally MAN-Scotland), especially its business-plane-like cabin. I did not, unlike NCL, find it at all claustraphobic. I guess this goes to show that you must experience it yourself to decided.

Are Easyjet using the 737-700 on all flights to CDG?

I'd just assumed it was a 737-300.

A 737-700 would be OK, I've never been on one yet.

But I still fancy going on one of the smaller planes mind.

easyJet flights from NCL are all on 737-700s. They currently have 6 73Gs based at NCL which will probably rise even further

When will Easyjet release their flights for May 2006?

I would say around October/November time. I've just been to NCL this morning, and saw the AF CRJ-700 land. What a beautiful aircraft that was to see gliding down to land, even in the shit weather. Absolutely beautiful to see.

BTW, seeing as you're looking so far ahead, I would not at all be surprised if AF's price decreased closer to the time. Why not search AF for, say, 2 or 3 months ahead of now, to give you an idea?

Yeh, I'd love to fly on the CRJ-700. But my wallets telling me it will be the 737-700 instead.

Just tried that Pe@rson. Still about the same price.

I'll keep an eye on the prices... see what happens.

Quoting Varig_dc10 (Thread starter):
The trouble is, Easyjets cheapest price for three people is about £150, while Air France is about £330.

I guess this is not per person but for the three of you, right?

If yes, then I'd say £110 per person sounds like a normal price range for AF on a flight of that length... a flight from FRA to CDG usually costs something around €120 plus taxes, around €180 in total - which equals around £125.

Yes, there are better offers on some occasions, I've seen €80-€100 at some points, but with taxes you'd still end up around €140-€160...

I don't think you'll find something much lower than what you've got right now.

Regards,
Frank

Frank,

£330 was for three people. I didn't think I'd get it much lower.

It's really not a bad price, but Easyjet are dead cheap if you book at the right time.

Mirrodie,

Why have you moved this from Civil Aviation?

In the text I mentioned a preference for Air France over Easyjet, but if you read the thread starter in full, I'm actually asking a question about the price and quality of Air France flights?

Please explain,
