Boarding was two-step, checkin then wait then enter the aircraft. Aircraft was very old, seats worn and even ripped. No entertainment. Feed was very basic - a warm sandwich in a plastic wrap… crew was ok, a bit cold and stern but otherwise polite
Flight to Florence delayed. All passengers took a bus to Pisa (1.5 hours away) to fly Pisa to Paris. We missed our connection and flew next day. All information regarding the delay online was incorrect ("system not yet updated") . So calling Air France was useless as they could not assist. Not all flight delays can be avoided but many improvements are needed throughout this process.
Plussat: "The premium economy- it was the most uncomfortable - tight seats. The back of the seats are not reclining It’s not worth the money you pay for premium services"
Miinukset: "The premium economy should be eliminated and should be labeled for what it is: couch class with some perks"
Plussat: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Miinukset: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."
Plussat: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Miinukset: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."
Miinukset: "Flight was delayed"
Plussat: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Miinukset: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"
Plussat: "Crew was solicitous."
Miinukset: "They didn't seat a couple with a baby together which put me in the unpleasant place of being asked to give up my bulkhead seat for a window seat."
Miinukset: "Couldn’t understand announcements"
Plussat: "In flight entertainment was great"
Miinukset: "seats very uncomfortable, boarding was a mess in Paris, priority luggage was annoying and made us miss our connection flight (as well as numerous delays)"
Plussat: "The crew was friendly!"
Miinukset: "Once again no vegetarian options."
Plussat: "Crew was friendly and attentive but hard to understand"
Miinukset: "Airport experience was inefficient. Long unattractive walk, boarding was tedious: the automatic check-in was not helpful and required so many more staff. Random security check was redundant and chaotic."
Plussat: "Most of the crew tired especially hard to keep everyone comfortable and safe. The food was absolutely amazing."
Miinukset: "Other members of the crew were snarky to passengers and dismissive of questions from passengers during the early stages of the delay. We were all trapped on board for about 4 or so hours without much communication from the crew or captain which made me very anxious. We arrived 5 hrs late and it put my whole trip in jeopardy. Based on this experience, I eont be inclined to use this airline again for future trip planning. This airline will need to work hard to earn my trust back because i felt physically and emotionally unsafe throughout the experience, many times."
Miinukset: "Being in the middle of the 4 seats with guys on both sides. They tend to restrict the space by using the arm rests."
Plussat: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Miinukset: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Plussat: "Flight attendant Ms. Sophie Picard made every extra effort to try to find a meal when they had run out of Business Class meals. She made up for the uncomfortable seating in Business Class."
Miinukset: "Business class seating on the AirBus 318 is very cramped."
Miinukset: "Our flight was delayed so we could not make out connecting flight. We had to wait 6 hours get another flight to Atlanta and then fly to Boston the next day, longest flight ever was horrible I called out sick from work too."
Plussat: "Friendly crew, good meal and entertainment"
Miinukset: "Boarding agent forced me to check in my carry-on even though the carry-on fit in the cage and fullfilled all the requirements. I specifically called Air France prior to the flight to make sure I won’t have any issues as my 1st flight was operated by Delta and I wanted to confirm the luggage requirements were the same. My carry-on weighted only 5 kilos. I was extremely upset the way I was treated w/ the boarding agent behind the counter in Prague. On the top of that, her and the supervisor were very rude to my mom as they told her she had an extra carry-on which wasn’t the case. She traveled w/ a small briefcase where her mask for sleep apnea was. This is not considered an additional carry-on. The boarding agent (Czech lady and her supervisor) were not only rude but obviously lacked knowledge as well. My carry-on suitcase would easily fit in the overhead bin plus there was plenty of space inside the plane as it the flight wasn’t completely full."
Miinukset: "No offer of snack with no egg in it."
Miinukset: "Please see comments above about this flight."
Plussat: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Miinukset: "People may think,that the delay of the flight has set my mood for this review but I can ensure it has most definitely not. With all the bad weather, I was already very happy to connect right on time in Paris. However, a long haul A380 flight with such a tight seat configurstion is almost embarrassing for an airline. The in flight entertainment is at a very poor level, not only with the screen being very small and outdated, many of the movies are only available in French and the international selection very limited. The food was not much of a delight, whereas the presentation was nice. However, in all the 7 h between the services, nobody came around with refreshments in a completely booked flight, neither was announced that a trolly would be set for self service in the galley. Lucky the ones who got up and found out about. In terms of amenities, again, the airline is lacking of originality and saves cost. Bottom line: you get from A to B, but there are so many better competitors in the market, which I shall definitely consider on my next travel."
Plussat: "I would like to come on time each trip because I got two late time before with airfrance"
Plussat: "The service"
Miinukset: "It was delayed. I missed my flight. Now I don’t have a bag. I am not sure when I get it back or if I have to go all the way back to the airport"
Miinukset: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Miinukset: "The room between seats is unbearable."
Plussat: "Punctual, not crowded."
Miinukset: "Even though the plane was far from full, passengers were allowed only 1 carry-on item (no personal item), contrary to policy published online by Air France. This policy applied even to people with Economy Premium for the rest of the trip (which allows 2 carry-on suitcases, not a useful feature if one cannot begin with this number to reach the transoceanic flight)."
Plussat: "Whenever I travel air France I get a reminder of what customer service looks like on a flight. Incredible crew, great experience"
Miinukset: "Not checking my carry on weight at check in then letting me walk all the way to security to then check my bag and tell me to go back to check in then the counter is closed and they tell me it's too late and that I need to get ride of my things so that my bag is under weight and barely making the flight"
Plussat: "it was cancelled so they got me on the next flight on Turkish"
Plussat: "Leg room is bigger than average, there is also a foot step which helps you to relax."
Miinukset: "There must be lice on the plane, either from the customer or on the seats. Got bitten 6 times on the leg and butt!!! And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"
Miinukset: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Plussat: "That it was a night flight"
Miinukset: "No airconditioning, no food choice, no space."
Plussat: "Flight went smoothly"
Miinukset: "Flight left late The seats are small and crowded There are no entertainment options"
Plussat: "Friendly crew and exit row had nice legroom."
Miinukset: "Ran out of the (already not sufficient) salty crackers and, as the flight had been delayed, we had a one packet of cracker 'lunch' at noon... the flight really should have had a sandwich or at least something slightly more substantial."
Miinukset: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Plussat: "Standard stuff"
Miinukset: "Our first leg from Paris was delayed and we missed our flight to Dubrovnik. We then had to hire a car and drive 6 hours to ensure we wouldn't lose a day more of our holiday."
Plussat: "Our flight attendant and fnally making it home!"
Miinukset: "Disorganized uninformed staff. One says I have to have an additional "random" security check after going through the same thing in security. Turns out it wasn't random and I didn't need it. Both times they read my boarding pass wrong thought I was going to Tel Aviv - not random. Airport was hot as hell! Flight kept getting delayed then we had a gate change as well. Finally got on the plane and it took forever to take off so we were basically sitting in a sauna for 30+ minutes."
Plussat: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Miinukset: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Plussat: "Disorganised and slow"
Miinukset: "Couldn't organise a booze up in brewery. Baggage offload took forever"
Plussat: "The crew"
Miinukset: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Plussat: "Although plane was full staff moved us through quickly"
