This is old news. I just flew AF 747 business class and had this seat. It was not nearly up to BA standards but was nice flight and I slept comfortably. There are plenty of pictures on this webtsite of planes in service with the new business class seat.

it goes on to say....
First aircraft to receive this new bed is 777-200, totalling 17 of them, all new 777-300 ( except 777-300 for Caribbean / Indian Ocean )...by May 2007, one quarter of AF's fleet will have these seat, and by Oct 2007 all long haul a/c will have either 2nd or 3rd Generation seat ( the 2nd generation being the other NEV seats), meaning all 747 and 340/330 will have the 2nd generation NEV seat, while the 777 fleet will have the newer seat.
