Hi The Spinmaster !
I work for Air France as a cabin attendant, I am on the long-haul routes out of CDG and I fly mainly on the 747's, 777's and A340: My main routes are to the Americas, North, Central and South.
I would like to say that I, like many of my colleagues, am very proud to be working with Delta. Our 2 airlines have a formidable relationship that is well built. I believe that we will go far together in establishing a full cooperation and greater service.
I have always enjoyed my flights on Delta, whether in Business Elite or in Economy.
Yet, like many other people I feel that Delta should change its domestic service totally and add another flight attendant to each flight that serve the domestic and regional routes. At Air France we have for example 5 flight attendants on an A320 on normal routes and 6 on the CDG-LHR/BRU and AMS. Those routes are short but we still provide the same service hence the extra cabin attendant. On a CDG-LHR which is a 40 minute flight, you get a drink and a sandwich (choice of two): You can get as many drinks as you wish. It is not a lot but for a flight where you taxy more than you fly there is no need for more food. In Business Class you get a full cold tray with a salad or cold cuts, cheese, and dessert and the usual drinks, cold or hot.
A more personal approach to the customer service is better than the "grap your snack at the entrance". all airlines in Europe hand-out the snack on the plane after take off.
I will be coming to ATL on a check flight on AF316 on the 20th of July. We could meet if you wish to.
Send me an email at email@example.com
By the way, I love your new uniforms ! Congratulations !
AF Cabin Crew.
