Air France news: More US flights & more US routes to get new Business...

Air France has issued a reminder of its network plans and things are looking good for transatlantic flyers. We have a new route, a restarted route and more flights on the way (all previously announced), and the airline is promising to roll out its newest Business Class product on more North American routes this summer.

Good Air France Business Class fares available ex-UK

We don't normally see many good Business Class deals for travel that originates in the UK but Air France is currently running a sale that may be worth a closer look. If you're expecting amazing fares to all Air France destinations you may be a little disappointed but with most major regions covered in one way or another and with roundtrip long-haul fares starting at under £1,300, this is a good sale by UK standards.

Air France UK offer: Save £50 on your next flight (includes codeshares)

Air France has just launched a limited-time offer on bookings for departures out of five UK airports. The offer comes with a minimum spend requirement and isn't valid for travel to the United States but it can still be a very nice money saver at a time when fares are anything but cheap.

Air France introduces a new route between the US and the Caribbean

It was back in August that Air France first mentioned that it would be adding a couple of new (and a little unusual) routes to its network and as the dates for those route launches approach, I thought that I'd follow up my earlier post on Air France's routes to the US with a reminder that we'll soon be able to use Air France to fly from the US (and Canada) to the Caribbean.

Air France brings back a US route and will offer up to 122 weekly...

With the United States having finally opened its borders to travelers originating in the Schengen Area, Air France has announced that it will ramp up its transatlantic operations to levels not seen since before the pandemic. The airline has confirmed that it will operate to 11 US destinations and will offer up to 122 weekly flights this winter season and that's great news for flyers.

Air France Is Now Replacing The A380s In Its Schedules

It has been over two months since Air France announced that its A380s wouldn't be taking to the skies again (at least not as a part of Air France's commercial operations) but it's only now that Air France has updated its schedules to show what aircraft it will be using on the routes that the A380 once operated.

Air France’s Tahiti Route Returning To LAX in September

A couple of days ago I published Air France's plans for its USA routes in the months of September and October but, while the new schedules look good for SkyTeam flyers based in the US, there was no news surrounding the return of Air France's flight between Los Angeles and Tahiti which was set to return in August. Well, we now have news.

Air France Is Reintroducing More “Normal” Meal Services Onboard

Now that airlines are trying to get their schedules back on track and tempt people back into the skies, we're seeing more and more carriers announcing the return of a little more "normality" onboard and Air France is the latest airline to confirm that passengers can expect to see improved service levels and offerings from this month onwards.

Air France USA Routes & Frequencies For Sept/Oct 2020

Most airlines have been operating skeleton schedules for most of the past few months but, over the past few weeks, we've slowly started to see a few airlines announcing plans to increase the number of flights they offer. The latest airline to announce increased routes and services to/from the US is Air France.

Air France Retires All Its A380 Aircraft…And Does Me A Favor

Air France hasn't shown its A380s much love for quite some time but it was still a big surprise to most when the airline took time out yesterday to announce that it was retiring all of its A380 aircraft with immediate effect.

Air France Launches Domestic Business Class Service

One of the oddities of Air France is that although it offers one of the best First Class long-haul cabins, some excellent long-haul Business Class cabins and (admittedly mediocre) Business Class cabins on short-haul routes traveling outside of France, the airline hasn't offered a premium cabin domestically for years.

Air France Making Positive & Negative Changes To Its San Francisco Service

Sometimes it can be quite amazing what a difference an aircraft swap can make and a recent change of heart by Air France is a great example of how an airline's decision on which aircraft to use can make a significant difference (both positive and negative) to its offering on any given route.

Air France Will Start Installing More Efficient Overhead Bins From 2020

KLM and Air France are back with a new UK sale (presumably to compete with the British Airways sale that's currently in progress) and with this sale offering deals to North American destinations as well as to destinations in the Caribbean, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, there should be something here for most people.

Air France Introduces New Business Class Meals For North America Flights

Air France is well-known for partnering with French Michelin-starred chefs when it comes to creating meals for its Business Class and First Class cabins across all its worldwide routes…but now the airline has turned to an American for some culinary inspiration.

Book USA – Europe Roundtrip Business Class From $1,847

As big a fan as I am of the Air France 777-300ER Business Class cabin I have to admit that I don't really pay too much attention to the Air France/KLM websites because, historically, I haven't found very much use for it (outside of the times where I found a fare elsewhere and then headed over the site to get the fare ticketed). Well, my lack of interest may have been a little foolish because I just discovered that KLM offers a very useful webpage which lists out all the current Business Class fares on offer for travel out of the United States to Europe, Africa, and India.

KLM/Air France UK Business Class Sale – Caribbean Fares From £1,549 Roundtrip

KLM and Air France appear to be offering more and more Business Class sales for travel origination in the UK (I'm starting to think this is a regular monthly occurrence) and some of the deals the airlines are offering right now are well worth checking out if you're looking to fly to Asia, the Caribbean, South America or Africa.

KLM/Air France UK Business Class Sale – Great Deals To Many Destinations (Christmas Travel...

KLM and Air France are back with another Business Class sale for departures out of the UK and this one may be very tempting for UK travelers who prefer not to have to position into Europe to get the best deals. All the sale prices are for flights which will require a connection in either Amsterdam or Paris but as all the flights originate at the UK's major airports that shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Air France Unveils Its Michelin-Starred Chef’s Business Class Dishes For 2Q 2019

Air France is one of the few airlines that regularly updates us on what it's offering customers onboard. Most airlines rotate their menus reasonably frequently (especially in premium cabins) but I can't think of another airline that's as keen to share what it serves onboard as Air France - I take that as a good thing.

If you’ve flown in Air France Premium Economy or Business Class this month you may have noticed that the airline has refreshed two of its onboard amenity kits for the second half of the year (I haven’t heard about any changes to the First Class offering).

Air France Integration Coming To Amazon Alexa

I've just bought an Amazon Echo Dot. It was on sale, it wasn't expensive and I wanted to see what it could do. So far I've managed to get it to pair it with my Sonos speakers (but haven't managed to get to to play anything other than Amazon Music) and I've managed to pair it with with my TV (but it refuses to control it) so you could say that my Amazon Alexa experiment is a work in progress - I'm still not sure just how useful it is.

Excellent Business Class Fares Between Warsaw & China/Hong Kong/Thailand/India/South Korea

Blog posts about good Business Class sales between Europe and Asia usually center around Qatar Airways and, occasionally, Finnair....but this time neither of those airlines is involved. Surprisingly, at least to me, SkyTeam is currently offering a selection of excellent Business Class fares between Warsaw and various cities in Asia.

Air France Will Finally Refurbish Its Airbus A380s….But Not Until 2020

The Air France A380s that are currently flying around the world offer one of the oldest style Business Class cabins offered by a major European airline. When I tell you that British Airways Club Wold is more progressive than the Air France A380 offering you should get some idea of what we're dealing with here - the Business Class cabin doesn't even offer true lie-flat seats.

Review: Air France Business Class 777-300ER (CDG-JFK)

How Air France & Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport Gave Me Quite A Shock

Thanks to the purser on my flight from Madrid I had a very good idea of where I had to go once I arrived at Paris Charles deGaulle but, after I had disembarked off the short-haul flight, I still stopped by the first set of information screens to check what gate my New York bound flight would be departing from.

Review: Air France A320 Business Class (MAD-CDG)

This was my first flight on Air France in years (I'm not even sure I remember the last time I flew with the airline), it was my first flight in Air France's short-haul Business Class and my first flight in an Air France A320. That's a lot of "firsts". Combine those facts with the fact that I'd just flown in to Madrid on an Iberia A320 and you'll see why I was interested to see what Air France would offer.

This week we've had both good news and bad news from Air France-KLM but I'll start with the good news first.
