Final comments
I do NOT recommend flying with Air France, because for sure they will lost your luggage.Moreover you would not receive any your money back, waiting a looong time for your lagguage. The airport in Bilbao is not situated in the centre and you have to be prepared for a 30 minute journey with an autobus. Apart from it,the spanish people are very nice and helpful for forein students, but have some problems with english.
