Hi,

Being on a very short transfer I just had a very quick visit to the Air France Lounge in F pier to grab some water. The lounge in general has a really nice design and atmosphere with plenty of buffets and nice airy seating spread over two floors with a great looking staircase. However on this evening it was very busy, crowded and consequently not a very relaxed place. 



Once I reached my gate boarding had already started and I could proceed to the agent via a dedicated and very clearly marked Sky Priority lane which was a very good and quick boarding experience.

On board I was greeted by a friendly crew offering small disinfection towels.

I took my window seat in row 3 of this small baby Airbus 318. The seats were of a slim and simple design but actually quite comfortable and definitely no issue for such a short hop across Europe.

The seat also provided power outlets.

Next to me a KLM Boeing 737 was getting ready for the late evening hop to the Dutch capital.

Once boarding was completed a flight attendant offered nice smelling and quite high quality refreshing towels.

This was followed by a pre-departure welcome bottle of water.

We left our gate on time and taxiied out. On this flight announcements were made in French and English only. I was surprised not to hear pre-recorded announcements in German though as on my incoming flight from Denmark those were provided in Danish language.

We had a very long taxi, passed the Air France headquarter and the great looking Concorde in some nice lights.

Then it was time to power into dark skies and head to our cruising altitude for a flight time of 1 hour 10 minutes.

Curtains to Economy Class were soon closed and Business Class had 8 guests this evening.

A nice smartphone self service option offered some games, information and airshow.

It also offers some wifi options which I did not use.

The very friendly male flight attendant soon rolled down a trolley and offered a cold evening meal with very tasty warm bread from a nice looking basket.

He then proactively offered Champagne which was very nice and of course I decided to have one along with some water.

I really liked the design of the cutlery.

The whole meal was very tasty and also very nicely presented. It was great to see it came with a proper cloth napkin - very rare for intra European flights those days. The meal was very filling and perfectly fine for a flight of this length.


The friendly attendant passed by several times to offer refills and I ordered a cup of coffee to finish the meal. unfortunately this was served in a cheap paper cup - sad to see Air France did not bring back the real porcelain mugs to the European Business Class so far.

We soon landed at Munich and docked at an gate of Terminal 1.

Conclusion

I was really pleasantly surprised by the very nice Air France Business Class service on this short evening flight. Especially the meal was very tasty and nicely presented. Only real coffee mugs instead of paper cups would have improved the experience.
