Hello everybody,

This is a quick report of my recent flight that I took from Miami to Point a Pitre (Guadeloupe).

I checked in around 7:30 am at a quiet Air France Sky Priority desk at Miami Airport.
The agent was very friendly and helpful.

Security was a breeze and I headed to the Delta Sky Lounge via elevator.
The lounge was not very busy and actually is a nice and modern place to spend some time.
There were some basic breakfast products although I found the use of disposable dishes, cups and cutlery not very nice for an airline lounge.
But still drinks and food were ok.

Only some minutes and directly into our Airbus A320 for this Air France Caribbean service to Point a Pitre with a stop at Port au Prince in Haiti.

The cabin consisted of four rows of Business Class and and I had my complete row for myself.
Although the older regional product of Air France narrowbodies the seat was quite comfy and a foldable table blocked the center seat.
A pillow and blanket have already been placed on the seat.
No pre departure drink or newspaper was offered.

Flight time to our stop Port au Prince was 1 hour 30 minutes and service started airborne with a packaged refreshing towel.
This was followed by a cold breakfast with warm bread and drinks. The meal was nothing special but still okay.

We passed over some very nice Carribean sea before starting descend to Haiti.

We parked on a remote position and almost all passengers disembarked via bus for their destination Haiti.
Onward passengers like me waited on board the aircraft.
After around 40 minutes some new passengers joined us and we quickly departed for the last hop to Guadeloupe.
Flight time was again ca. 1 hour 30 minutes.

Service again started with refreshing towel followed by a cold lunch, warm bread and a choice of drinks.
This meal tasted very good and I ended my meal with a nice cup of tea.

Flight quickly ended and we made our approach to beautiful island of Guadeloupe before docking at an airbridge of Point a Pitre airport.

In overall the crew was friendly but not very attentive and actually more interested in chatting among themselves.

Thanks a lot for reading,
