Air France IFE?

I've got an Air France long haul flight coming up, and they keep sending me emails telling me to download their app so that I can access the IFE.

Does this mean that as I don't have a smartphone I won't be able to access the IFE?

I don't think so, unless things have changed recently. My last experience with fair chance was about 8 months ago, Paris to Amsterdam. The IFE, such as it was, was the usual screen and headphone socket. I didn't see anything that interested me.
Might be different depending on route and type, though. I just take my Kindle.

We recently took a WestJet flight to Canada and the only way to access the IFE was via their mobile app - there was nothing in the way of Ďback of seatí IFE as the hardware simply wasnít installed. Perhaps Air France are beginning to take a similar approach? If so, it is essential to download the app before you get on the aircraft - otherwise you have to buy Wi-fi access on the aircraft, then download the app, then use the free IFE app which you have just paid to get Wi-fi access to download!

So, in the absence of any other info I would definitely recommend you download their IFE app to your mobile and tablet of choice before getting on the aircraft. If you find the aircraft you eventually get on does have conventional hardware IFE you have lost nothing and can just delete the app after you return if you donít want it.

Or, just bring a book to read!
