My wife and I have flown many times with Air Transat and this is my first negative review. Seats were old leather and had seen better days. Cabin temperature was cold for the whole flight, fortunately I had a jacket in my cabin case and had to put it on. Food was probably the worst we have experienced on Air Transat. Rice and peas in a vinagraite for starter (awful) and beef Bourginonne (?) on a bed of pasta for main was not good either. Coffee cup was of a strange and awkward design; the handle was adjacent to the lip and parallel to it which made holding it quite awkward, so obviously bought at cheapest possible price. Cabin crew took ages to serve meal and seemed to be fewer in number. I won't say too much about the entertainment system; too awful to watch. HOWEVER, a fellow passenger said that the fleet is being updated this year. Hope it means an improvement in all departments.
