Air France Experts/Fans

Thu Mar 08, 2001 5:51 pm

Hi folks,

As AF ranks among the airlines which I know best I just would like to know who else of you considers himself as Air France expert or fan. I know that the user ID often indicates it already - as mine does - but I would like all like-minded in this forum to manifest.

By the way I often take Lufthansa, too

Regards,

F+ Rouge

Sorry, I did not want to say that I knew AF "best" compared to other members of this forum, but compared to other airlines that I know (except for Lufthansa perhaps).

L'Espace180,
Tant mieux qu'il y ait d'autres fans ici qui rivalisent avec moi pour en être le plus gros!!! Néanmoins, je te préviens que ca risque d'être dur, puisque ca fait quand même plus d'une centaine de fois que j'ai embarqué un avion Air France l'année dernière.

Salutations

It's difficult to be an expert when you're all the way in Dallas, but I certainly consider myself a huge fan. I had the great pleasure of working in Passenger Service at JFK during my college summers and it was the best job I ever had.

Jobalas, good luck with your pursuit; I can relate to how you feel about working for AF and I think you've picked a great time to work for them... AF would be very lucky to have soemone with your enthusiasm.

I cannot define myself as an expert but maybe a fan then. AF has been my favorite longhaul airline for over two years now, and everytime I have to choose an airline, I compare it to AF. As a result of this, I'm going up with AF again on next saturday from HEL-CDG-IAD.

Jeez!!! Thats day after tomorrow, better to start packing now...

Je crois que vous m'avez oublié dans la liste des fans d'Air France !!! J'ai déjà voyagé avec AF plusieurs fois et notamment entre CDG2C et JFK en B777-200ER, et je peux vous dire que le service est vraiment excellent. L'écran individuel offre plein de possibilitées. Avec ça, on ne s'ennuie pas à bord !
Salut à tous les fans d'Air France !

hey, frenchies!
j´ai comprend tout les choses vous avez dit.
don´t you think you´re among yourselves!!!
i understand quite a bit  Wink/being sarcastic however, i´m not that good in speaking by myself.  Insane
as a matter of fact, i´ve been to france just today, i´m just living 5 minutes from the border!!!
ok, off topic, sorry.
unfortunately, i´ve never flown on AF, so i cannot judge for myself.
in my opinion, AF is certainly a fierce competitor for and the most important rival to LH and although i´m more pro-LH, i´m glad to see that AF has become so strong again and now, that it has recovered so well from its red years (ok, i know, that´s some time ago) i´m sure AF´s got a bright future.

au revoir, mes amies

Me, too, I hoped that AF a340-300E, AF Cabin Crew and all the others who always provide very well-founded information concerning AF would manifest as experts or fans of this great airline.

Bonjour !

I have been reading your thread for a while and was wondering when you were going to call us in.
Well, here I am. I am very proud to have my name mentioned by you and will always try to provide you with information about my great employer, Air France.

I have a big piece of news about myself. I have applied for a position of cabin crew member on the Concorde before that very sad summer date. I was recently contacted by Air France to know wether I was still interested to work on the aircraft should it fly again.
After a positive answer from my part and 2 weeks waiting for their answer I have been accept for an interview with the Concorde people which is a very difficult thing to reach. I have friends with excellent records that were turned down by the Concorde people.
I will go to my final interview on the 13th of March at 1500 and will get their answer a little later.
I hope I will get the job as the Concorde is my ultimate dream.
Wish me luck for next tuesday.

Happy Flying,

AF Cabin Crew.

Eh, l'Espace 180, je sais ce que ça représente 2003 ! C'est l'année où Air France va introduire sa nouvelle gamme de services à bord et sa nouvelle livrée mais malheureusement je connais pas beaucoup d'informations sur tous ces changements. C'est aussi l'année où elle va recevoir son premier B777-300LR.  Laugh out loud Laugh out loud Laugh out loud Laugh out loud

Happy Flying,

All the best!

I had the immense pleasure to fly twice with Concorde (not that I could afford it, but hey, you have to make sure that your dreams come through). An amazing experience and an amazing service on board!

L'Espace 180,

Vu que tu insistes  Smile/happy/getting dizzy:

Classe Tempo
Check-in efficace
Depart a l'heure
Avion flambant neuf, superbe A340
PNC sympas
Champagne
Sieges confortables avec PTV
Visite du cockpit sans probleme
Repas excellent (choix de 2 plats)
Excellent choix de films PTV en francais et anglais
Programme musical excellent
Possibilite de sandwichs a volonte a l'arriere de la cabine
Arrivee 25min a l'avance a SFO
Pas d'attente pour les baggages (ni a l'immigration!)

J'espere que le retour LAX-CDG-GVA sera egalement impeccable mais je ne me fais pas de soucis...

Moi aussi j'aime AF, bien que je trouve que leur "livery" aurait besoin d'être modernisé (un peu comme ce qu'a fait BA). Le service est super, et les pilotes sympas pour la plupart, cet été un pilote génial m'a permit de m'assoir à sa place dans le cockpit. Il s'appelle Christian Descatoire, je l'ai remercié mais avec le recul j'ai envie de le remercier encore plus,car je suis resté 1h30 dans le cockpit (sur un vol de 3h30) et c'était mon 1er atterro en cockpit en 320. Il m'a expliqué plein de trucs, bref il était trop sympa.
Peut-être que quelqu'un travaille chez AF ici et le connais ?

A + tout le monde,

Deniz

Je suis australien mais je suis actuellement en France pour 6 mois pour rechercher une thèse sur les lignes aériennes française et leurs alliances globales et régionales.

Bien sûr il faut parler de SAir et cette triste histoire mais une grande partie doit être consacré à Air France. Tous les experts: je serais en contacte pour des infos si vous voulez bien m'aider!!!!!

Il faut aussi dire que le service à bord AF est un des meilleurs que je connais. Je prends souvent l'avion, mais en Australie, AF n'est pas vraiment une option. Mais, il y a deux semaines j'ai fait CDG-BCN-CDG (A321, A319) avec AF et c'était extra. En plus, en 1995 j'ai aussi fait KIX-CDG avec un A 340 toute neuf (codeshare JAL) et le vol reste dans mon mémoire d'être le meilleur de ma vie.

Et félicitations AF Cabin Crew. Moi je rêve d'un vol concorde, mais je crains que mon portefeuille me ne laissera pas!!!!!!!!!!

Bonjour all !

My interview went OK. I do not want to say more than I know.
I should know if it went OK and if I will become supersonic around the end of the month.
I keep my fingers crossed.

Happy Flying,

Count me in! The airline is my favorite, and I am fortunate enough to fly it almost yearly (YYZ-CDG-OTP, used to be with 767 and 737, now is A340 - thus my name - and A320).

I wish you luck, AF Cabin Crew. Once you get the job, try and get them to charter that plane into YYZ!  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud

As for my french, I'm still learning. I understand most of what you people have said, but it will be a little longer before I can reply (in French).
