F-GTAS our 12 year old A321 for the 2 hour 39 minute flight from CDG to ATH today.

Pretty full flight despite the ongoing pandemic (AF policy - only surgical face masks to be worn for duration of the flight).  Pushback was around 40 minutes late; temperature checks, crowding at the boarding gate and a missing passenger with hold baggage possibly didn't help the delay.

Smooth approach and landing into Athens.

Conclusion

Overall comfortable and efficient flight with Air France. Onboard catering could have been better however despite ongoing situation, anything served on board was a pleasant surprise. Wifi and entertainment options very good as well as free messaging.

AFKLM also giving double miles and XP points for bookings for the remainder of the year. Therefore gained 40XP for EDI-CDG-ATH towards maintaining Platinum in 2021.
