I'm travelling ARN-ORD next summer and I have two options.
AF through CDG or BA through LHR. The fares are about the same.
There are some positive and negative things about both airlines.

+Haven't flown them before
+I get to go on the A340 and the A318, which I haven't flown before
+Fun to see a new airport (CDG)
-Don't know the quality of IFE and food
-Bad transfer times on my way home (45 min or 6 hrs 45 min)
-Not sure if I can choose my seat at check-in
I would really like to try AF but I'm not sure if I'll make it to my next flight in 45 min and 6 hrs 45 min is a very long time to wait.
Is the AF IFE on the A340 as good as BA's? Are the movies with French sound or French subtitles?
What would you choose?
Thankful for answers!
