Welcome to my first flight report for Air France 39 between Washington Dulles to Paris Charles De Gaulle!
As it was the beginning of Summer Holiday in the States, and Air France / KLM share the same check in counters at Dulles, the lines were immense and almost never ending. I stood in the baggage drop line for almost an hour while two counters handled an overbooked A330-300 bound for Amsterdam and another overbooked 777-300ER bound for Paris. After making my way through a quick security screening, I made my way to the gate in concourse A.
A quick shot of the concourse
Avianca A319 and two United 772s
A British 747-400
My Bird for the Day!
In the jetway used for all four classes
My seat, 23K, part of the first row of economy. The pitch was sufficient, and the arm rests were not too encroaching.
Dulles is clearly a big East Coast hub for United, with flights all across the globe.
A One World Qatar 777-300er arriving from Doha
Virgin A330, SAS A340, BA 747, and even a southwest 737
Menus were distributed quickly after take off
So were headphones, eye mask, and a packaged towel
Presentation for the meal was good, but the Beef was mediocre. It is also makes me very sad that AF has decided to serve brie flavored cheese.
Midflight, I changed seats so that a father could sit with his wife and baby who were using the basinet. He had an aisle seat.
IFE selection is good, but the two prong audio makes it compulsory to use the below average AF headphones. Thankfully i kept a splitter from a past delta flight.
'Breakfast' was a muffin, Oj, and yogurt.
Thanks for reading!
Washington - IAD
Paris - CDG
An average transatlantic flight by Air France. The cabin is really tight with the 3-4-3 configuration. Crew was friendly, but nothing amazing. I will still choose Af over United anyway on this route. Check back for more reports coming soon!
