Flew SFO-CDG on 2 Jun 2012 and return CDG-SFO on 30 Jun. Good flights in both directions. Economy seats are standard Airbus seats in 3-3-3 configuration on A330. Meals are typical airline fare. No matter what airline you fly always best to get a good pre-flight meal if in economy. One must recognize that the meal is simply to help pass the time. Whatever deficiencies others express about XL Airways are made up by the personable flight crew and the great fare prices. Check in was very efficient in San Francisco; typically Gallic in Paris.
