Our flight was very smooth. Excellent service and very friendly and professional crew. Food was not bad. The captain made a smooth take off and landing. Nice new plane. We had a good relaxing nap during the flight.

This flight was nice. Free service and snacks. Very clean and A/C was good. Seats were comfy and had a large movie selection. There was a monitor behind each seat ans was a good size. I would have liked a hot towel, but it wasn't offered.

Flight was okay. Baggage handling at both ends was abyssmal. Waited almost 90 minutes in Bahrain for my bag - delivery was interrupted to handle a flight from London. On my return at CDG they posted the wrong delivery carousel so again waited almost 90 minutes for my bag.
