Has this occurred to anyone else? Or does anyone know of others who this occurred to? I read up about this type of situation afterwards and it seems that it does occur: AA being the guilty party. Do other airlines operate this policy? AF did mention when we contacted them, that it is in their terms...

I I loved the attention to the architecture and your report was very enjoyable to read. I've never heard of Regent & isn't it vintage to get a 737-800 without winglets?! i find it hard to understand that an airline with First class doesn't even have magazine but maybe something happened that day...

At least you got a sambo. And I love Crete, I went there on my first foreign holiday with friends in 2003 :) on an A300
