Air France: When choosing an airline for the just over 10 hour flight from Johannesburg to Paris (return) it was Air France's Airbus A380 that swayed my decision towards them...and it proved worth it...mostly. Booked seats on the upper deck economy which has to be the way to go, small economy section at the rear with an ideal 2-4-2 seating configuration, very cozy. The A380 is comfortable and incredibly quiet. Food and service were above average and the entertainment system a treat...though the entire plane was 'entertainment systemless' on the return flight, last minute fault they couldn't fix in time and wouldn't delay the flight for...nobody really complained, and additionally Air France gave each Blue Card passenger a bonus 2000 flying miles. Overall a pleasant journey with nothing to complain about.
