After a wonderful experience in Colombia, the time flew by and quickly arrive the day came back home in Sweden. The first flight BOG-CDG was scheduled for 17:20, so we had to go with my parents to the airport about 13:00, arrived quickly to ElDorado Airport despite the several road works in the avenue, with some lanes closed, but anyway to 13:30 we were already coming to the terminal.
Looking for a place to get off the taxi
We arrived and immediately proceeded to check-in line which had not yet begun, but there was about 20 people already formed in front of me, the line moved quickly and in less than 3 minutes on the counter and get my luggage tagged to Sweden and my boarding pass in hand.
Then i proceed to the passport control
This is how was looking the gate area, some people watching the soccer game of the world cup.
My 343 getting ready for his long flight
Around 16:45 boarding started whose order was the usual, firstly passengers in business class and premium economy, after that passengers with special needs; and finally economy class passengers. As my seat was in row 40, I could get in faster.
This boarding bridge produce me a claustrophobic feeling
Warm welcome from the crew

During ascent the crew distributed the headphones, a sleeping mask and a refreshing towel.
Also the menu
The cabin before the dinner was served
I chose the second option with white wine
After dinner, the crew turn off lights so passengers could rest better, I had no desire to watch movies so I put the flight map and doze for a few hours while the crew remained active, distributing occasionally drinks and ice cream service in mid-flight.
When I woke up and went on the Azores and it was dawn outside
The breakfast was served one hour befor landing
We arrive on time at 11:00am
i passed smoothly and went to the baggage-arrivals area
Hope you have like this report

Hi everybody and thanks for the replies!!
The overall experience was very nice service both on land and onboard, but is fair that AF needs to make a urgent replacement over the outdated a340's. My specifics regular impressions were related with my seat who present problems try to reclining (it get stuck sometimes when try to move it, make me having to make a big force to unbend it), and the mini-IFE with his poor image quality.
However i feel compensated with the nice service on board, the food tasted nice and the crew was passed serving drinks very often always with a smile.
