Yes I am a Gold Elite with KLM and also with Cathay Pacific, so I will have benefits on both companies. I have flown Air France in the Past, and it was all ok in Y class!... Although no experience on EI.
I either have a choice of an Airbus A340 to EWR on AF or flying An airbus A330 on EI.

Is AF still opperating the 777-300ER on the CDG-JFK run or have they been redeployed?
The last I heard was that the 773ER was going to NRT only.
Most of Aer Lingus' long-haul flights are full of tourists (read: children) so the service can slack a bit and is certainly not that great to begin with. AF meanwhile has many business people on board, even in economy, so the service should be pretty good, as well as the people.
You take a chance with Aer Lingus and getting a PTV, and at least with AF, if you know what type of plane you are on, you will know what your IFE will be.
