Air France Business Class On A330 Seat Question

Wed Dec 12, 2012 6:16 pm

I booked ORD-CDG in Business on AF and would like some feedback from y’all.

In looking at the seat map at the AF website (below), the A-330 has two business class sections. Four rows then the galley/lavatories then three more rows then a bulkhead separating the rest of the cabins.


Those who have flown Business on AF's 330, please provide feedback on which of the two mini-cabins are more desirable. Pros/Cons.

Also, when the seats are in "sleeping position" is it possible to get from a window seat to the aisle without disturbing the passenger in the aisle?

Thanks for any and all input.

TT

No, you have to climb over the legs of the passenger in the aisle seat. That's why, with that type of angled-lie flat product, I would always choose a seat in the center section where each passenger has direct aisle access.

As far as which cabin is best, I can't see much difference. However, many carriers begin meal service starting at the front. If AF does that, you would be served earlier in the front cabin.

Sorry, never flown. But look at the seatmap - row 5 with baby bassinet and lavatories in front. So, the aft cabin is a no-go for me! Very simple...

Go with one of the middle row seats in the front section. I'd pass on row 1 though, personally. 2 & 3 are the best option, imho.
Where have all the tri-jets gone...

Go for middle section row 4. Sat there twice flying on the AFA330. Great seat.

The a/c will be fitted with Nev4.

Thanks for the help. I will try to do a trip report on it.

Happy Landings,
