They only received a score of 6/10 rating, overall from 472 Air France reviews. Passengers are complaining about the airline’s delayed flights that cause them to miss their connecting flights as well and what made that worse is there were no explanations given.
However, on a positive note, the recent reviewer also experienced that delayed flight problem, but still gave them an 8 out 10 star rating when he said “Delayed flight. However, Air France staff could change easily my flight to catch an earlier one. Newspapers available prior to boarding. Messy luggage pick up in Orly at arrival as you arrive at another exit than the luggage belt. That luggage belt is reachable from outside this airport and poorly secured.”
