Hi I am looking at flights to Paris with Air France. It will be in Economy (sadly) anyone had any recent experience?
Departing from Sydney. Looking on the Qantas website for flights to Paris, best deal is Qf or Ba to Singapore and then Air France to Paris. This is for Sept next year.
Have flown to and from CDG twice in Classe Affaires and loved it. A very pleasant airline. It means flying QF to SIN, HKG or other destinations and continuing with AF. Flying on QF to LHR then onto CDG is tiresome.
No idea of AF economy but this might a bit of help. Air France Customer Reviews | SKYTRAX As always ignore the extremes of the spectrum of reports and come to your own conclusions.
If you are interested try investigating 'Premium Voyageur' which is like premium economy. Flying AF is like stepping into France before you even arrive there.

Note that QF bookings for PER-SIN-CDG return will return QF codeshares on AF flights for the SIN-CDG-SIN sectors. PER seems to be unique in this respect. Of course, this may require transcontinental positioning flights and if QFF points and SCs are of no consequence ...
Thank you for your replies.
When I did a flight search to Paris I thought it would offer most flights through LHR, flew that route last year on points. But all flights offered were via SIN and then on Air France. The price was $1965 on the website (sale price?), which was better than the TA offered.
Do not have enough points for 2 return flights on points, used them all up last year. So thought if possible I would use QF or codeshare to gain points.
Meant to mention the flight search was on the Qantas website. I don't seem to have much success working out the oneworld site.
I flew that route (in economy) last year - really enjoyed the food on the Air France leg, with particular reference to the basket of bagettes handed around with dinner. The service was fine too.
My only comments, and they're minor ones, are
1. they don't give you a bottle of water, only glasses, and I stupidly forgot to empty my bottle in SIN before boarded, so had it confiscated - it's a pain in the neck not being able to keep water next to you while you try to sleep, so make sure you have an empty one.
2. The seats were HARD. Otherwise fine, but I needed more padding under my bum - I'm flying with them again in Jan and will be taking a seat cushion!
