AirFrance, the flag carrier for France, has released an official app for Windows Phone. This may sound familiar as the company already has a mobile app available on the platform, which they released last year. Unfortunately this was a version of their mobile website, so what we're seeing with this new app is a fully featured Metro experience. 

The app is like any airline offering for Windows Phone with the functionality to organise trips, purchase tickets, check in and to be informed of the status of flights. Tickets can be purchased using a credit card through the app, and several bookings can be made for multiple passengers.

Checking in using the AirFrance app is convenient with all travellers in a group being able to check in on a single Windows Phone. Additional baggage can be purchased when checking in, as well as choosing desired seats (with the option of upgrading). For flights within Europe, to North America and Israel, a flash code can be sent to the app that can then be displayed at security checkpoints.

Flight delays, strikes and cancellations are all displayed should any be affecting booked flights. It's a fairly standard app that sports needed functionality and required features to ensure passenger journeys are smooth.
