Reply To: Rumour: Air France to Abolish ShortHaul European Business Class

Back to Forum


It is perhaps not a great loss, as the Air France intra-Europe business class experience is fairly poor? I would rate AF and KLM at the bottom of the experience scale.

Other European airlines of smaller scale (Air Lingus, SAS, BMI) with smaller inter-continental fleets have scrapped business class all together, or removed it from certain routes. I know SAS has consider this, but a survey among Eurobonus Gold members showed that 10% would always pay business class (almost) regardless of price.

On personal travel in Europe, I tend to use LX and BA as they offer business upgrades for a small surcharge.
