Hi all, i flew to YUL some weeks ago. here is my report.

II > Pre-Flight:

a) Before Airport:

The flight was scheduled at 6:55 pm. I left hotel at 3 pm... just in case, and I was right, it took me more than 2 hours to reach CDG... (cab).

b) At Airport:
I don’t need to drag on, we all know that CDG is a nightmare... mess.

Beside, the check in was so long, no line, but too long for C class. ( 25 min )... Computer issue I've been told...



I had some time to kill, I went to the AF lounge. The lounge is nothing special, So I settled down on a computer in order to check my mails and I ate some snacks. Free wireless internet was not available, and several computer terminals were also out of order..




Upon boarding, A steward greeted me and walked me to my seat, it was a nice touch... maybe because I was the first one to board..


III> In-Flight:

a) The flight was on time, so we left a 7 pm, minutes later FA's were offering drinks and snacks..



then I had 2 tiny slices of smoked salmon... (stingy AF).



then I had a very good veal, with mushrooms and potatoes. it was good.



here are some shots of the C cabin







prior arrival a very light meal was served.. I did not even take a pic.

b) Aircraft + Seats and IFE:

The plane was neat, and my seat was a toboggan, it's always very hard to sleep on. IFE was working for once but movies on board were all seen on previous flight.

V> Impressions + Scores:

The crew were very nice, but paying 4500 E R/T its very expensive.. for that, it took us 7;15 min to reach YUL. and on the way back it took us 5;40 h... I will make another report for that one.

Check In: 5 (Friendly but it was too long)
Lounge: 6 ( I expect more from AF)
Boarding: 10( no line and a nice touch from the FA)
Seat: 6.5 (a bit wider could be nice, and please a wanna a bed not a lie-flat)
Crew: 9 (always looking after you)
Meal: 8 (good.)
Entertainment: 5 (working for once but movies seen one month ago).

Thanks for the report. THough I used to work for AF I've always found their business class service lacking compared to DL or CO, except for the food, which is usually better. I agree about CDG, a mess normally.

How many daily RTs between CDG and YUL on AF? Why do they leave so late at 1855 westbound?

Nice TR

I cant see the pics.

However, bad to hear that you didnt enjoy your time with AF so much.

Quoting Milesaddict (Thread starter):
and on the way back it took us 5;40 h...

That is actually pretty fast. Did you have heavy winds with you??



Thank you for sharing

Fying Af is always a big deal for me...

The pics are ok, weird you can't see 'em.

Indeed we flew to CDG at 650 and up to 700 Miles hour, (tail wind).

it was funny, we ate, slept 2 hours, and breakfast were served already...

next month I'm flying to DXB in Business still with AF... (I'm kinda freak).

I have already a issue with the outbound flight.

AF denied my SMFL, they told me there is no in flight meal served.... and it's wrong cause I had a meal on that flight months ago.

the flight is AF530...

see you
