Consider Savings Versus Comfort

Savings Versus Comfort

Although rock-bottom cheap flights to Paris may save you a few dollars up front, it can end up costing you more in other ways — in fatigue, in time spent in airports, in jet-lag recovery time, and in the overall service of the airline.

That's the reason we continue to recommend Air France, but with one warning — Air France has "partnered" with Delta Airllines, For travelers, this is a huge pain since Delta is one of the airlines we always try to avoid. So, when you book, make certain your flight is operated by Air France and not by Delta.

Why We Recommend Air France

Air France

We first loved Air France because it offered far superior in-cabin service, better food and (the clincher for us) lots of free champagne. But, on a couple of flights we weren't happy with the food, the plane, or the champagne!

Here's what turned us around — Air France listened. After our unsatisfactory flights we complained online, telling them what we thought should be improved. Then, during our next recent flight, the Air France staff came to interview us on board. They wanted to follow up and to find out how they were doing! This is unheard of on any other airline. It was both surprising and gratifying.

Most important, though, the service and the food had improved. The food was actually good. The champagne was the real stuff, the cabin was in great shape, and the entertainment system couldn't be beat. (It's unfortunate that, recently we've found that the food has sunk to the standard airline meal. But everything else is great, including the airport experience in Paris.)

There are a few other advantages to flying Air France. When you land you arrive at the premier terminal (2E) at Charles de Gaulle, while the North American airlines are usually relegated to the "other" terminals. Air France also has one of the best in-flight entertainment systems, which can be pretty important on flights lasting up to twelve hours. Plus, Air France has some pretty darn good fares from the west coast.
