Most of AF 744 have PTV. I flew on them a leats 25 times and I had no PTV one time (aircrafts used to Caribean). Upper deck is economy class and the best seats you can have is row 60 (upper deck,first row). Try to have that seat (60 A or 60 F is better) but they usualy keep these seats for Sky Team elite members travelling in Economy. Good luck and good flight.
Not necessarily. Flying Blue members get preference over upper deck, but you don't need to be an Elite member. I'm only Flying Blue Ivory and still got upper deck seats coming back from Mauritius last year. It depends on availability. I was on one of the aircraft which had no PTV on the lower deck but was fitted in the upper deck so I had a great flight (F-GEXB). I wouldn't like to have been on the lower deck, it looked awful for the 11 hour flight. You'll find my trip report with lots of photos here:
