Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

First of all, I've read a lot of negative reviews of this airline and I have to say that in my opinion this was an excellent flight on a brand new plane and I have nice memories of it.

I was going back to Paris on an overnight flight. Boarding was at the scheduled time, and there was the opportunity to choose our seats.
A new generation Airbus A330, brand new. There were individual touch screens and a multitude of movies (Chinese, English, French), with a choice of dubbing or subtitles. The bathrooms were clean and were cleaned regularly during the 12 hours of flying.

The flight crew was great, competent and available. There was a good-quality meal, fried noodles and caramel pork with a wine list. Beverages were unlimited and available from the flight crew.

Then a long sleep with a pillow, thick blanket (warm), and space to stretch out your legs before you arrived rested Paris.

Landing was at the scheduled time, luggage was in good condition and there ar the arrival: so nice.

I traveled with Air France on an A380 for the departure flight and really, it had almost the same service, quality and comfort.

To conclude, I've read a lot of negative reviews about this airline before I left, but they didn't match my experience. If you look closely, all of the forum posts date from 2006,2007,2008 . . . Almost 10 years = Outdated.

Bonjour pierre S.,

Merci beaucoup pour votre avis.

Sur What The Flight, nous prenons en compte l'obsolescence des avis.
C'est pourquoi, dès qu'un avis date de plus de deux ans, un message d'information est affiché et dès qu'il dépasse les trois ans, celui-ci n'est plus pris en compte dans les classements (en plus du message d'information).
