I will be traveling to Paris next month on AF 83/84 from SFO. AF is running a A332 and A343 on this route during the Winter months. I will be flying economey and would like to know is there a noticeable difference between the two aircraft in terms of seat comfort.

No. Depending on where you are sitting, the 343 might be a little quieter.

I've been on both and there is basically no difference in economy. Just beware of the IFE boxes under the seats impairs legroom quite a bit. I believe the windows seats and the middle seats have the boxes underneath them. Check seatguru.com to be sure. Both have a 2-4-2 configuration however the last 3 or 4 rows are 2-3-2 across. If you get the first row of 3 and aisle seat you get a few more inches to stretch your legs. The downside is the armrests don't move.


A330 man.

Agree, you wont notice too much differences. But if one go to a more detailed level, some AF A343 were in the fleet well before the A332 making the latter a tad bit more comfortable:
- less Y capacity
- better designed seat in Y
- slightly larger PTV
- seat back in grey making the cabin a bit more brighter than in the A343.

Correct.
This could be the only difference.

I prefer the A332 over the A343 for that reason, as some A343 are now getting really old ... and you can tell !

Take the A332 on one leg and the A343 on the other one ... you'll be able to compare and tell us what do you think !
