Another good one from Air France, but maybe someone can give me the answer to this one:
AF has a phone check-in, where you can check-in for certain flights leaving from or to France. The number to use from France is 0897 650 820. Thus, from abroad it is +33-897 650 820.
Now here's the joke: the number works fine from France. From abroad, it is *technically* possible to call that number, i.e. one does *not* get a message from the phone company like "this number is not reachable". But it's much better: upon calling +33-897 650 820, there is a pre-recorded message from Air France saying that this number is no longer in use and that instead one should call +33-897 650 820 - WHICH IS THE NUMBER I JUST CALLED!!!
I know that Air France's internal "Committee for making air travel unnecessarily complicated" has produced some wild things, but this one is really a highlight.
Only question is: which number can I call to do a phone check-in?
PS: and please don't tell me to do internet check-in. I tried that, it doesn't work for 1 out of 2 times, and it just happens not to work for this particular flight I am taking.
