Cons: "Very little legroom for a 6'1" guy. Would have liked a bit more space, but I guess I was too tired to let it bug me."

Pros: "Didn’t like the sandwich offered"

Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"
Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."
Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."

Cons: "I just didn’t enjoy the entrainment."
Pros: "I would like to come on time each trip because I got two late time before with airfrance"

Pros: "Food, drinks, and general service on board were all very nice"
Cons: "Airport experience at cdg was atrocious. Took more than an hour to check in and it was a complete zoo."
Cons: "Food and coffee were cold. Service on AF is getting worse."
Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."
Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."
Pros: "A short flight but attendants served us a snack and water with a smile."
Cons: "No business class"
Pros: "The fast boarding."
Cons: "The long wait without the air conditioning until our slot in the takeoff list became available."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Cons: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
Pros: "The plane is roomy and bright"
Pros: "The airplane was new, good food and service."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment wad quite nice, even though the screens were old."

Cons: "Change crew"
Pros: "Great food, friendly crew"
Cons: "Late boarding wasn’t announced. Ran out of several drink items on flight"
Cons: "More announcements about lateness of departure. Less breakable plastic glasses. Passing water out more e often. Better coffee- it was very weak. Better movie selection"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Informed the day before via an email from the site that the flight was delayed. Arrived at airport on time, checked in. Once at the gate we all waited to board. Boarding time came and went with no information. Everyone waited. No information was announced and no one was at the gate. After waiting for over an hour with everyone in confusion, boarding was announced. No information, no acknowledgement."
Cons: "very short flight"
Pros: "Air Austral ok"
Cons: "When your company proposes flight which goes through Thailand, it should be clearly advised that there will be a visa that needs to be bought while going through the Thai immigrations, we spent around 14,000 Thai Bhats while incoming and outgoing. Very dictative country, I will never ever fly again through Thailand with Air Austral, I would prefer paying another Rs.10,000 to emirates and have a better service. The Hifly company that operated the flights from RUN to BKK and back, was a disaster, very uncomfortable and really bad service."
Pros: "Crew and service were top rate."
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour. There was little information passed along within the airport. Boarding/manifest at the gate was a madhouse with no order or flight class boarding. This was surpassed at Reunion by the mobs crowding to get their visas."
Cons: "To learn that the flight was over 3 hours later was a problem for different reasons : - what to do in a airport during 3 hours ? - we arrived in St Denis at 11:10 pm, + luggage time so nobody could come to pick us"
Pros: "Food and service are above usual airline standard."
Cons: "Both directions transit/transfer at Reunion/St. Denis was a joke. This is more the fault of the airport than Air Austral. The security facilities are inadequate and slow, staff unfriendly ... consequently the transfer can never be made in time and departure is delayed. After all of that you get back on same aircraft !!! why not leave passengers flying onwards to Johannesburg (Mauritius) on the plane ... as I have experienced with many other airlines."
Pros: "Staff was nice. Worked to make sure we were seated in a way that helped us stay together. Plenty of space. Courteous staff."
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving Antananarivo. Flight arrived slightly late to Port Louis (Mauritius). Wanted to get food at airport in Reunion as we got to Reunion at 8:25 pm and had left home (to get to airport in Antananarivo at 2:30 pm, were only served a small snack on flight - it was only 1 hour long), but there was no ATM in the terminal and the only place serving food did not accept international credit cards."
Cons: "Arrived 20 - 25 minutes late on connecting flight Air Austral from Johannesburg. But the real problem is transfer at St. Denis - worst ever encountered. There is only one security station in a cramped stuffy area ... staffed by 8 slow, useless and unfriendly people. The technology must be outdated, because although your cabin bag, laptop case etc. is scanned, before scanning every bottle (no matter how small ... even 50ml or 100ml), makeup etc. is manually searched for then taken by hand and scanned in a separate device. Also any duty-free in a sealed pouch is taken, opened, then re-packed in a new IDENTICAL pouch and sealed !!!aaarrrrggggh?? Do this x 100 passengers (all travelling to Port Louis from Johannesburg via Saint Denis) and your Air Austral scheduled 1 hour transfer time is a joke ... with this frustrating process they need 2.5 hours minimum. Coupled with Air Austral late arrival of 20 minutes departed about 80 minutes late. The joke of it is the plane from Saint Denis to Port Louis is the same plane as used for Johannesburg - Saint Denis leg ... so why disembark the 90% passengers going to Port Louis at all ... leave them on the plane and only disembark those few for Saint Denis."
Cons: "Online check-in - boarding pass for 2nd leg Saint-Denis - Port Louis could be issued, but not for 1st leg ?? Boarding - confusing - boarding pass issued stated 14:45 as boarding time when this was in fact scheduled departure time. Plane eventually departed 20 mins late."
Pros: "Air Austral is a great airline providing top quality service"
Cons: "too little of ethanol on board (nothing)"
