More than acceptable value for money

Review of bababou about the flight XL Airways France between Paris Charles De Gaulle and Las Vegas on 18/08/2012 in Economy

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

The negative comments about this airline are very exaggerated. I personally travel very very very often and because of that I have a great deal of experience of just about every airline, including the most reputable.
In the case of XL Airways, it shouldn't be forgotten that the prices are very competitive, but despite that I can assure you that I have never been disappointed by this airline.
I have never experienced delays.
In my experience, the staff are competent and friendly.
The food is airline food. For those looking for 3-star dining, it's not in the air that you can expect to experience that, even in first class with the best airline; so nothing out of the ordinary here in this respect, but nothing disastrous either.
Of course, space is a little lacking because there are more rows of seats, making it difficult to extend the legs; but again, keep in mind the prices on offer.
Personally, I recommend this airline.

And for those who want 5-star comfort at low prices: it does not exist, so either lower your expectations or pay the going rate, but stop criticising this unpretentious, value for money airline. You can't have your cake and eat it.

And based on my experiences, whether it's Air Canada, Air France, British Airways etc, or XL, it's providence that dictates the risk of experiencing technical problems, delays, or other issues, not the airline.

Bonjour bababou et bienvenu à bord ! Tout d'abord, merci de cet avis bien fourni qui met en avant le rapport qualité prix de XL. Vous dites voyager souvent, je serai intéressé de lire vos autres avis sur vos autres expériences aériennes. Les voyageurs et moi même sont à la recherche de voyageurs réguliers qui comme vous, savent être impartiales dans leur jugement.
J'espère donc pouvoir vous lire bientôt !

Merci, j'envisage un aller retour NY sur cette compagnie, ma priorité est la sécurité, le sourire est un plus agréable, je n'attends pas de faire un festin dans les airs surtout à ce prix, vous et d'autres m'ont convaincue je vais opter pour ce vol qui est le meilleur prix et sans escale !!
