We departed for the home country on this Aircalin flight for Tokyo Narita.
The interior of the aircraft had been updated, so it was comfortable.
At first the flight crew was welcoming. However, they showed a certain lack of empathy towards the passengers during the flight. It's not a requirement, of course, but it's a plus.
As for the meal, let's just say right away that it was pretty disappointing. They gave me some kind of mixed vegetable dish that, visually, was not appetizing (which is why I didn't eat it). The worst, however, was that there was obviously a problem preparing the meal-tray that caused the plate to be half-empty. The rest was just a piece of cheese and water, basically the strict minimum.
However, they did have a pretty large choice of beverages for the aperitif.
As for in-flight entertainment, there was no sound. I had to plug into the empty seat next to me to watch a movie. My headphones didn't work with my seat.
But okay, by this time I'm used to having headphone problems with Aircalin.
Otherwise it was a trip without major problems. Pretty routine.
