1 / Do you need to "hang" because someone is on strike or does not want to lift your "heavy" suitcase ?!
2 / I would choose any other airlines if only again Don't get caught by the assholes of customs officers in France, for whom an expensive sealed bottle of rum from Russian duty free was a reason not to be allowed on a connecting flight!
Yes, a normal airline, no worse than many. On the plus side, I would write down a rich drinks menu, the opportunity to visit Paris on long transfers and the normal attitude of the staff towards passengers (especially if you know how to connect a few words in French). The downside is that little leaves from Charles de Gaulle Airport on time + "eternal" staff strikes. But I repeat - Air France is a normal airline. Fly safely!
