As I do not like connecting in Charles DeGaulle (or Heathrow) I have tended to avoid Air France. However, as most of my flights are with SkyTeam I knew I would fly them eventually. I flew out of Cincinnati into Paris and onwards to Manchester and came back the identical route. OK CDG is not a great place to connect (silly security to change terminals) but the Lounge was great and my Air France flight was good and the cabin crew very nice. I am thus happy and will definitely try them again. I might try a long haul flight with them next and even try business class too to give them a fair chance. A good experience - kudos Air France.
