Air France In World

Sun May 16, 1999 10:03 pm

What do think about the possible new destinations opened in the world by Air France ?

Do you believe PHL, DFW and DTW are possible ?

Air France will re-open Capetown and SYD soon.

They stoped flying for this summer season because they used the A340 on another destination.

But they're likely to re-open it because they've recieved new B777 and A340 since that.

My friend flew AF to miami, he said that the service was excellent, food ok and seats pretty comfortable. Talking about safety, I think AF is safe, but maybe not as good as LH. I have never flown AF myself, but I would like to fly the 747-100 or 777-200. 747-100 is pretty rare in europe and I'd like to experience it before it's too late

Hello LH,

I'm happy to see your friend enjoyed AF to MIA.

About safety, I know Air France quite well and I knwo Lufthansa too (I was already in their two hubs and I have spent time in FRA in particularly), and I can say AF is as safe as LH.

Moreover AF is changing its whole fleets and has many planes on order, and new orders are to be annouced soon (for 747-200).

About 747-100, you have to be quick because they'll have totatly desapeared from the fleet next october.

Best regards,
