Plane is a bit aged (the A320's in the AirCalin fleet are 10+ yrs old) but still a comfortable experience. Food wasn't on-par with other international business class but it's a sub 3hr flight so suck it up.

Entertainment is a single screen for the cabin but there are about 12 audio channels (most in french). There's no english channel for the entertainment which is weird and you can't plug your own speakers into the sockets as they provide ready plugged in seinheisser headphones.

Everyone speaks french and everything is french on the plane... the plus side of that was the wines... I love a full-bodied cab sav so the 2008 margaux blend and a nice 2011 syrah which I forget the name of.
