Thanks for your answer MSYtristar but it does not help very much. Apparently by looking at the AF web page it gives you the seat map on only two types of 400 and the one they used probably on CCS/PAR flight shows no PTVS at all. It says movie monitor along the cabin. I can not believed that.

Air France will use the 744 that has 40J class seats and 396 Y class seats.
Only 3 of those 744 have PTV's in all cabins the others only have it in Business Class and in Economy Class on the Upper Deck.
The 3 744 with ptv's in all cabins are F-GITH/ITI/ITJ
Air France doesn't put a certain 744 on a route but rather a type and CCS is served by 744 with 40J and 396Y as I said above.

As said above 3 of the AF 744 have PTV at all seats.
Other have PTVs for upper deck seats only (it was a business cabine before, with the needed wires already installed when the planes were transformed from a 3 class to a 2 class config).
Having flown the CCS-CDG route frequently in the last years I would rate the chance of having a totally equipped plane (including main deck) higher than the proportion of planes equipped (3 out of 13).
Reserving seats in advance on the Upper Deck is possible for Skyteam Elite.
If you are not an Elite, then do the internet check-in (30 hours before the flight): you will be able to get a seat on the Upper deck (rows 60 to 69).
