Advantages Punctual, the food was okay...
Disadvantages where do I even start?
This was the first time that I had flown with Air France and believe me after I' ve used my return (I KNEW I should have gotten a single!) it will be the last.
I usually fly with Asiana but this time Air France were cheaper so I didnt really think about it.
Before my flight I called Air France to ask how strict they were with baggage to see if it was the same situation. I was told on the phone that they would let me off a few extra kilos.
So I arrived at Manchester with 26kg (I'm a girl, I dont do travelling light) thinking that maybe I'd have to pay for one which I was prepared to do.
The guy on the check in was miserable and unfriendly. He said he wouldnt put anything over 20kg through and he didnt care what they'd told me on the phone, if I had an issue I had to take it up with the ticketing desk because that wasn't his job. After trying to (politely) argue my case he begrudgingly said he'd let it through at 22kg but no more.
So I went over to the ticketing desk where I was basically told "tough luck". The fact that I'd called and asked got me a shrug of the shoulders and a "theres nothing I can do about that". If I wanted to pay the excess baggage then i could but it would be 175pounds!!
Before I left I checked with her that my baggage was checked all the way to Seoul, as once when I'd flown to the states I'd had to pick up my case and recheck it. She looked at me like I was the stupidest person alive and rudely told me that 'yes, of course it was checked all the way'. Duh.It didn't get much better...
I requested a vegetarian meal and didnt get it. I told the stewardess that I'd told them when booking the ticket and when I checked in. Surprisingly enough I got ANOTHER shrug (have I mentioned how aggravating that is??) and a "well we dont have one for you."
The rest of the food was actually pretty good (once I'd picked out all the animal parts) and had I eaten meat I probably would have enjoyed it. They also get bonus points for having about 15 kinds of cheese in every dish (after 9 months in korea with only nasty plastic slices to show for it it was more than welcome).
