I have just booked Manchester UK to Hong Kong with AirFrance as the prices were just too cheap to miss. £304 return!! The only thing is is that I have looked into AirFrance and I only seem to hear nightmare stories about them. Has anyone here flown with them, and if so, are they ok? I'm not that bothered with staff friendliness, legroom, clean plane etc etc, as long as me and my luggage get there on time and there is free beer and entertainment on board then I am happy.

Flew Air France on my honeymoon and was not too impressed with them. But my gripe was the entertainment system not working for a really long time (they kept restarting it and finally got it going after a few hours) and the airport in Paris which is terrible! Other than that they were pretty okay. I'd say, generally speaking, somewhere in between American and European airlines overall. Not quite the level of some other European carriers, but on another plane/flying through a different airport they might well have been.

Still feel that nothing beats Asian and Middle Eastern airlines though. If the price difference isn't too big, I always try and go for these.

Yea I keep hearing about the dreaded entertainment system!!!!! I shall just have to take advantage of the free wine and play my mp3 player.

I totally agree about the Middle Eastern and Asian airlines. I flew with Qatar Airways a few months ago and they were by far the best airline I have ever been on! Unfortunately for this flight (I am ending up in the Philippines) they were asking over £500.
