Couldn't agree more with you!!!
Flown LAX-CDG on July, 30th and it was a nightmare.
I was seated in he middle, by friend by the window : the seats are not comfortable, there's no space at all!!!

While in France, I wrote a "complain" to AF , comparing with LH 340 & 747 and BA 747 comfort. The answer I've got was nothing but commercial blabla.

Up to now, I was dedicaed to AF but the quality is downgraded a lot, the FF program is now something of a joke and whenever possible, I'll now avoid AF.
It's a pitty because the flight CDG-SEA on a A330 was very comforable!



Flying is amazing!

Thanks FlySSC
The 3-4-3 config is indeed a real disappointment; the 77W is a great a/c though

Mostly for A.Netters ...
"normal" passengers don't even care and/or notice ... but that's another debate.

Air France took delivery of its 30th B77W last June 26th (F-GZNG)

To be more accurate I would say “Mostly for Frequent Flyers”. Just see Flyertalk.com to get an idea.

Now even normal passengers can identify that when flying (and some of my friends/colleagues complain to me, as if I was responsible of this change: being relatively knowledgeable in airlines can be dangerous!).

Avoid 777 with 3-4-3 config in Y ! They are real sardine cans. (AF/KL for example)

AF026/027 CDG-IAD sometimes operates with a 300 during the winter - scheduled as a 200 but 3 or 4 days of the week its operated by a 300, and at the beginning and end of the winter is scheduled as a 300.

Potentially, all the lights operated by a B777 can be switched from a -300 to a -200 or vice versa at the "last minute" or for a certain period, according to the booking or aircraft availabilities.

It often happens on CDG-IAD, but also CDG-MEX, CDG-IAH or CDG-GRU

Hello,

This might sound as a dum question,

But does AF fly out of Paris-ORY to FDF, PTP and RUN because they have a special connection to France?

Yes. Martinique (FDF), Guadeloupe (PTP) and Reunion (RUN) are all French overseas territories. These destinations are better served from ORY because of all the domestic connections possible with AF there, compared to CDG (there are much more domestic flights and destinations at ORY)

France is the largest European market from Lebanon due to a large Lebanese population and strong historical ties going back to the French Mandate.

They've been using the 77W to BEY since 2006.

On CDG-BEY-CDG, in addition to the Daily B77W, AF also operates a 4 x Weekly A332 flight and codeshares on the 2 x Daily MEA's A332 flights.

I was surprised too when I found out after making reservations that the AF flight to PEK is operated by the 77W with 10 abreast, obviously KL gave them the wrong example! Any chance the flight will be 'downgraded' to the 772?

Surprised they only fly the 77W to two airports in all the cities Air France flies to in the USA. What does AF fly to SFO, ORD, IAH, ATL, BOS and SEA ?

I think the 77W will fly to SFO once the 744 is withdrawn from service

SFO = B744 summer / A343 Winter

ORD = A332

IAH = B772ER

ATL = B772ER

BOS = B744 + A332/A343

SEA = A332

I bet frequent fliers know the difference and those are the ones who tend to pay the highest fares for economy. Fortunately for AF a lot of these people also value time and non-stop flights, but it's a very fine line that AF is walking.

But i also bet that AF knows what EK has been doing with their 777s (= making a profit), so really i'm not sure it's such a bad idea.
They know so well that it could be a success that they even propagated the plague to KL, for the greatest pleasure of our Dutch friends!



When I doubt... go running!

But on EK 777s, the legroom is much better than on AF 77Ws. So, they may also have 10 abreast, but with a better legroom

It's actually the opposite way : AF's B77W were initially configured in a 3x3x3 seating in Y.
KLM always had its B77W with 3x4x3.

30 Viscount724 : I believe AF is in the process of changing all 77Ws to 10-abreast in Y class.
31 Pellegrine : Lol, it is a pretty simple formula, eh? 744 to 77W...instant fuel savings of what 20-30% (well EK never had pax 744s), another row of Y seats = +10%
32 Viscount724 : 77W also has almost 20% more cargo volume than the 744.
33 FlySSC : ALL the AF B77W fleet is configured with 3x4x3 in Y. 9 aircraft have 14J (2x3x2) / 36S (3x3x3) / 422M (3x4x3). Used from CDG/ORY to PTP, FDF, RUN, HA
