Montreal To The UAE On Air France (many Pictures!)

Thu Aug 06, 2009 7:48 pm

Good day,

Last may, I had the opportunity to visit the United Arab Emirates. The return flights would be with Air France. Please click the image below for the link. Enjoy!



As usual, comments and questions are appreciated!

Awesome pictures. I have to say, the service on AF Y doesnt look any better than that of UA's long-haul Y product. Your pictures from your trip are amazing, I have always wanted to visit the UAE. Thank you for posting.

Thanks for posting a great trip report. AF meals look good - but lacking variety as you witnessed. Ya, intercontinental crews are usually NOT good at AF. Your experience is consistent with what most of us have experienced. Thanks for sharing again. Keep flying!

Saludos,
A.

Thanks,

Nice pictures.

Food & quantities look ok, flying AF later in the year so useful heads up.

Thanks

Hi,
I've read the tripreport with pleasure. The quality of your pictures is supurb! Really nice.
AF does offer a good product and competitive prices on longhaul. I don't like 3-3-3 in economy when travelling with a partner, so I would prefer the Airbusses always above the B777 for Y class travel.

Regards,
Eric

Truly amazing pictures, thanks for sharing. I find AF's catering looks very good for Economy class, better than Delta at least.

Nice stuff AGD. Although I've been to Dubai numerous times, I haven't had the chance to go inside the Burj, or to do much desert exploration. Now I want to!

Nice you got a good variety of Air France planes too. I've want to try their A330 for a while.

Brilliant, high quality photography. Love every detail of your report, although I'd love to learn more about the service on the flights.
There's always a better way to fly...

Nice TR. By the way, the food on AF is miles ahead of what UAL offers to its Y-class passengers on international flights. This is in response to the first comment.

Exellent report with great clear pictures. The meals look very appetizing, your report confirms my positive experience on a CDG-ATL flight earlier this year.
