    Bonjour tout le monde,

    En anglais on dit souvent "Have a safe flight!" ;

    Donc, est-ce qu'il y a un équivalent en français ou est-qu'on dit plutôt :
    "Je te souhaite un bon vol"

    Absolutely: Bon voyage!

    'Bon vol!' (just the two words) is frequently used

    (Subject to French native confirmation I suspect that 'Bon voyage' is of more general application and refers to the whole journey and not just the flight)

    Si quelqu'un me disait "bon vol !", à part en cette période neigeuse, je penserais qu'il de moque de moi, et je lui répondrais quelque chose comme "Ouais, ça va, c'est qu'un vol hein !". L'expression ne m'est absolument pas familière en français, mais peut-être suis-je le seul à penser ça.
    "Bon voyage" can refer to almost everything : just the flight, just the holidays in the other country, or both.

    Bonjour Guill

    This reminds me of a journalist who once asked Prince Philip 'How was your flight, Sir?' 'Have you ever flown?' he replied. 'Yes, Sir' said the journalist. 'Well, it was like that!'

    'Bon vol' is often used by pilots to one another, but they usually enjoy flying.
