Air France: stretching the reality of air travel in its latest ads

Air France claims otherwise - the airline has launched a series of films to flag up points of difference such as its comfortable, full lie-flat seat-beds; seamless priority boarding processes; and menus of haute cuisine designed by leading French chefs.
