for my flight from Paris-CDG, AF 84 to San Francisco next april with my wife and my son, I would like to obtain 3 good economy seats on the right side of the plane before the wing to make some pictures about the North Atlantic and the greenland.
So can you please tell me what are the seat numbers to reserve, because the Air France 747-400 model has 2 possible configuration, and I don't know wich one is in service to SFO:
* 40J and 393 Y
* 17J and 457 Y

^I see....so it is 40J/393Y for regular non CIO flights, like SFO, right?
Is this with the new business class?
The quality of the Y is as good as in the 330/340/777 flights right? Not inferior, like in the CIO flights I suppose. I just ask this because 393Y and only 40J is an odd configuration for a regular longhaul 744.
Seat Guru sucks ! NO AF's B744 have ever been configured like this.
The 3 Class config. was 13P (Front) / 58J (28 seats main deck between doors 1 & 2 + 30 seats at the U/D) / 324 Y .
7 a/c still retain this 3 class config :

Another question as I probably fly on AF 744 later this year. Do they have PTV in Y class? The ultimate PTV threads weren't helpful enough. Some, 3 or so, had at this time. What's up now? And is it possible to pre-book a seat even when I got the flight via a package tour?

Quoting Anxebla (Reply 11): Patrick, definitely First Class is more and more strange in the airline business.
I noticed the same, a few examples: IB got rid of it, LH's new 346's don't have it, only AF's 777's have it, etc.
But no wonder, most companies book their employees only in Eco or Biz Class when they have to go on a business trip, even management employees get usually a seat in Biz and not in First anymore. And which normal person can pay a First Class flight? I would say that there are just a few.
