Ready-An airline actually giving you a good deal!

I recently flew Air France for the first time in a long time and was really surprised with the experience. I am happy to say it was not the usual surprise of unexpectedly charges for everything in sight–all that stuff that used to be free. Air France has just changed their ticket structure to offer
an almost business class experience for an almost economy price. They are calling it Premium Voyageur and
the seats have 40% more room than economy. Sample ticket sales for a route they
offer this service on are $800 for economy, $1,075 for Premium Voyageur, and
$3,765 for business. For 40% more room that price difference is pretty tempting
for a 6 hour flight. I flew it to Paris recently and have to say
that it feels like business class in those comfortable hard shelled pods, but
the price is way better–less than a third of business class. Oh, and priority check in, boarding
at your convenience and two checked bags aren’t bad either. Nice to see an
airline actually giving you something these days instead of just charging for
the same service that used to be free. I usually go for the cheapest flights, but frankly I am pretty tempted by this upgrade for that price…a tempting balance for me.
