One thought on “Air France launches new menus, once again with Michelin-starred dishes”
I first flew Air France as recently as 2017. And in my opinion, I have never looked back. Outstanding. I quickly gained FB Platinum and the service is incredible. Not great on the ground, but on-board is impeccable as far as I am concerned. So not surprised at this great new offering, Michelin! If I was to choose between QR and AF, hands down AF in F, hands down in J to QR. So I use the best of both worlds.
