I come back from a CDG-MIA-CDG on AF90/95 operated by the NEV reconfigured 744 ( NEV = nouvel espace voyage)
when I took the same flights in June the 744 were in old 3 class configuration with in total some 390 pax
with the NEV, the planes I took this time were approx 390 eco + 40 biz.
that means a direct increase of 40 pax on the AF CDG-MIA route and even more considering the 2nd CDG-MIA operated with an A340 is also NEV reconfigured!
flight loads were very good both ways with nearly all seats taken.
lots of connecting pax from MIA to FCO and MAD / BCN on the way back
the route CDG - MIA is absolutely an A380 one!!!
also good to know, the upper deck is now some kind of improved eco with PTV and bigger legroom - PTVs are not there in the normal cattle class -
so, should you take an AF 744 in eco don't hesitate to ask the upper deck while checking in as it's much cooler for the same price
