Reasonable flight, but no more than that
Checking in at TNR was arduous and took a very long time. The passports were checked on no less than eight occasions between arriving at check-in and boarding. Sometimes, there were two checks in the space of five metres in the same lane!
Boarding and take-off were 15 minutes behind schedule. We were behind schedule by the same amount when we arrived at destination, but there was no gangway available at CDG. It took more than an hour to retrieve the baggage (a regular occurrence at CDG).
The onboard service was the same as on the outbound flight: aperitif, dinner, breakfast. It was adequate, but no more than that.
The cabin crew were nice.
There was no in-flight entertainment (it was the same plane as on the outbound flight). Only the progression of the flight can be viewed on the personal screens: no music, no films, no TV series, ... nothing.
Comfort levels were average.
