Cons: "Flight check in was an unbearably long process, in a hot and stuffy area. Once through check in, the passport check line took over an hour. 100-150 people all corralled in like cattle, while ONLY ONE agent was checking passports to enter the security area. This was outside the secure area!!! Anyone could have entered here and executed a terrorist attack with large casualties. It was unsafe, uncomfortable, and unreasonable. Shame on you Paris Airport. Then the flight was late on arrival, and late again on departure, causing me to miss my connection to Los Angeles. This opened up a whole new list of botched customer services."
Pros: "Excellent aircraft, seems very new. Main meal served (I had vegetarian option) was great. Blankets provided were very nice. Good entertainment."
Cons: "The smaller snack served later in the flight was not good. I had the vegetarian option, and the items in the box were meant to be served at room temperature but I believe the box had been heated up with the regular meals, and everything in the box was piping hot - chocolate bar was melted, mustard packet was hot, lettuce on sandwich was wilted, dried fruit mix was hot."
