About Air France (from Wikipedia):
Air France (French pronunciation: ​[ɛːʁ fʁɑ̃s]; formally SociΓ©tΓ© Air France, S.A.), stylised as AIRFRANCE, is the flag carrier of France headquartered in Tremblay-en-France. It is a subsidiary of the Air France–KLM Group and a founding member of the SkyTeam global airline alliance. As of 2013 Air France serves 36 destinations in France and operates worldwide scheduled passenger and cargo services to 175 destinations in 78 countries (93 including overseas departments and territories of France) and also carried 46,803,000 passengers in 2019. The airline’s global hub is at Charles de Gaulle Airport with Orly Airport as the primary domestic hub. Air France’s corporate headquarters, previously in Montparnasse, Paris, are located on the grounds of Charles de Gaulle Airport, north of Paris.

Air France was formed on 7 October 1933 from a merger of Air Orient, Air Union, Compagnie GΓ©nΓ©rale AΓ©ropostale, Compagnie Internationale de Navigation AΓ©rienne (CIDNA), and SociΓ©tΓ© GΓ©nΓ©rale de Transport AΓ©rien (SGTA). During the Cold War, from 1950 until 1990, it was one of the three main Allied scheduled airlines operating in Germany at West Berlin’s Tempelhof and Tegel airports. In 1990, it acquired the operations of French domestic carrier Air Inter and international rival UTA – Union de Transports AΓ©riens. It served as France’s primary national flag carrier for seven decades prior to its 2003 merger with KLM.

About Airbus A350 (from Wikipedia):
The Airbus A350 is a long-range, wide-body twin-engine jet airliner developed and produced by Airbus. The first A350 design proposed by Airbus in 2004, in response to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, would have been a development of the A330 with composite wings and new engines. As market support was inadequate, in 2006, Airbus switched to a clean-sheet “XWB” (eXtra Wide Body) design, powered by two Rolls-Royce Trent XWB turbofan engines. The prototype first flew on 14 June 2013 from Toulouse in France. Type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) was obtained in September 2014, followed by certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) two months later.

  2. Free facials!!!!

  3. Boy if you hate long taxis you should avoid O'Hare (but as a native Chicagoan, please don't avoid O'Hare!). The southernmost and northernmost runways, 10R and 9L/27R, have 15-20 minute taxis to the terminal, depending on traffic load and weather. But then, as the FAA said, better a 20 minute taxi than a 60 minute holding pattern. O'Hare does tie with Atlanta for most annual ops (or at least it did before the great panic of 2020)

  4. Fox on the taxiway….

  5. It’s very not good quatar Airways but Air France it’s very better thaΓ― chic Γ  la franΓ§aise

    There are much worse as business class in A350, in particular that of Lufthansa

  7. The fox is walk like a pro knowing that he doesn’t need a passport to enter a plane lol

  8. My family flies Air France business class from LAX to De Gaul and Vice Versa every summer on the 777 because Air France has good mileage deals.

  9. France gonna French, who is surprised? LOL

  10. I flew this first class lay out on LaTam from LAX to SCL, it was on a 767-200.

  11. I hope the fox was okay

    Hi watching all your post from India. God bless you and stay safe.

  13. I will say despite it being a bit meh 39k points is fantastic.

  14. Thanks for sharing! We flew Air France SJO CDG CAI on Business and was a nice experience in 2021.

  15. Fox? No. FOD.

  16. not fan of the fade to white Dan.. too bright

  17. best thing about this review was the fox on the runway. fairly useless otherwise

  18. As a crew, those scratches are inevitable. And are mainly caused by passengers rather than the airline personnel. People dragging their bags in and out each day will surely cause scratches. 3 months is a long time considering the number of passengers and flights each day.

  19. air france is number on 8 skytrax , best EU airline

  20. Maybe you’re the most unlucky man in the world but I’ve been doing connections in CDG for 20 years and I never took the bus once. Only ever the little automatic train which is like 5 minutes

  21. Sometimes the French hurts a bit my ears because of your prononciation

  22. HonnΓͺtement c’est cher pour la prestation !

  23. did not enjoy the air france premium economy Seat didnt recline and food was horrible… 11 hours

  24. lovely flight i enjoyed flying with you

  25. To The Left…… To The Left……. That’s a very familiar commentπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  26. Thanks!

  27. Air France has the best business class product in Europe in my opinion with KLM not far behind. The others went downhill but used to be my preference. I guess they all change or adapt from time to time.

  28. thank you Dan. living in France, i am very interested in flying with Air france, but unfortunately for me it tends to be Ryanair; oh to dream x

  29. I took Air France from Paris to Rio. That was the poorest service I ever had in business class.

  30. I flew through Copenhagen a few years back. Very nice airport but totally confusing. I had no idea that the flight was canceled until we ran into the pilot who told us. It was surreal Weirdest airport ever. Almost as bad as Chicago O'Hare. But at least at O'Hare they give you PA announcements.

  31. Yeah, Paris' airport blows. And the food didn't seem all that great. (We flew AF from Atlanta to CDG)

    Oh, poor baby! You would have died on People's Express with the $5 box lunch…

  33. too white, too cold .. too narrow … i wont pay for a long haul in such plane to be honest

  34. earlier this year i flew with air france from AMS to GOT with a layover in CDG and it was the worst flight experience of my life. we had to wait around at schiphol for over an hour and a half after our scheduled departure time. then, while boarding, they said the flight was nearly full and they needed to check my carry on bag at no cost. i accepted, and told them that my final destination was gΓΆteborg, they assured me it would be sent to gΓΆteborg, and then i boarded. the layover in paris was scheduled to be 2 hours, but since we were so late, myself and a couple others who were taking the exact same route from schiphol to gΓΆteborg practically had to sprint to the other gate to catch the other flight. they had delayed the second flight specifically due to the fact that the ams-cdg flight was running late, so we were able to make it on that flight. while business class was boarding, i went to the airfrance help desk to double check that my bag had been sent to paris, and the woman at the counter who had a horrible attitude said that "if they said it'll be at GOT it'll be there." and basically scoffed at me just for asking. next thing i knew, i was standing around like a fool at baggage claim in GOT looking for my bag, until i went to the help desk and informed them that my bag hadn't arrived. they gave me a claim number to check the status on their website and it took them not until the next day, not 5 days, not a week, but 10 days to recover my bag and deliver it to my house in sweden!! i haven't had the misfortune of flying with them since, and i luckily haven't had such a horrible experience on klm or any other airline for that matter. very unprofessional. no compensation was offered despite the fact taht i told them that my medications were in my bag which i intended to carry on, i am on mental health medications and i suffered much from their slip up that took over a week and a half to correct. i'm still working on getting any form of compensation back, at the very least i'd expect the fare to be refunded

  35. Dan it has been so long since you took a flight on the chariot of the student,
    Ryanair. Each time I see you on their flights I laugh

  36. the bus service is temporary due to works on the automated fast train service.
