Their short haul a/c (A32S) doesn't even have drop down screens, and the new seats can't even recline. Their short haul C class is a joke.
Concerning their long haul a/c, their 777s have become terrible with 10-abreast in Y, and tiny PTVs (some airlines have 10-abreast in Y, but with at least huge PTVs). And of course, they don't have mood lights....

Even at 10 abreast, TAM 77Ws look much nicer.
Concerning their A380s, they must be the most basic A380s in the world: nothing extraordinary, when we compare to other airlines, inluding LH (!).
The F and C class are also disappointing.
What do you think? Why does AF make the miminum?
Don't they have to improve their cabin to remain competitive?
This is not an AF bashing thread, on the contrary, I love this airline, which represents my country around the world.
