This flights are operated by Corsair and Air Caraibes. Corsair is fantastic and has good air crafts. But Air Caraibes has always delay, terrible seats and service. I'm disabled and my husband and I were flying and had to catch a connection flight in Paris. Telling them I was disabled and needed a certain type of seat to be able...

Traveled in May and was nicely surprised by both the service, which was very nice and fresh by very attractive and young cabin crew. The food in coach was superior to business class on the worlds largest airline. Seat comfort was adequate and I will not hesitate to fly this airline and route again. Price was half of using a...

I've travelled with them for years. Very courteous and polite, mostly on time (island time). In Guadeloupe they refuel which means you must disembark for 15 minutes. So you won't be taking a nap!

Air Caribes has transatlantic and regional service to Guadeloupe. My experience in their regional service was satisfactory, on-time service and clean aircraft.

For vashe class this was surprisingly comfortable. The food was simple fare and the drinks average but they came when needed. I loved the in flight camera which made landing and take off fun and oddly reassuring. Limited entertainment so take your own player if Yiu want variety. A reasonable amount of leg room for the tall. Attentive crew made...

Almost perfectly on time the first time, afterwards even early which was great. Almost all staff is friendly and a beverage is offered on board, even for a short flight, which was very much appreciated.

We have usually travelled with Air France to our destination but decided on a change of airlines and glad we did. The service was very friendly, the good better than the norm. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was that the plane was delayed by 90 minutes and we were not given a reason for this

Lovely airline with great staff which is essential for a long flight. Well worth the upgrade to Class Cariabes as you are in a separate cabin and this worked out to be a similar price to Air France economy. Class Madras looked great too.
