Need Help with AF A380 Economy Seat Selection!

Wed Sep 11, 2019 5:19 pm

Hi All,

I am flying Air France for the first time on the A380 from ATL-CDG in economy at the end of the month. After reading a ton of reviews and trip reports I am not too encouraged as there are mixed opinions on where to sit. I'm very tall and am very worried about being comfortable for the overnight flight. I am willing to pay for seat selection and possibly upgrade but have no idea which to select as different sites including seat guru all offer mixed reviews and conflicting info. Here is what is available (note I am traveling with one other person).

Lower Deck
30A, 30B or 30K, 30L (middle and window)

Upper Deck
90E through 90G (entire middle section of 4)
93A, 93B or 93K, 93L
94L, 94L

If anyone could share their recommendations or experiences it would be much appreciated!

I’ve only flown the 380 a few times in economy but i remember having a window seat and the window being further away from the seat. I don’t think you can lean against it.

The seats you have selected have mostly immovable armrests - if you are tall but otherwise thin it's great. Keeping this mind, row 90 should be the favourite choice. However, there might be some crossings from the cabin crew during the journey.

34D is the best option for you because there is no seat in front of you. There is no 33D because the floor there has an access point to go to cargo area or the area below the lower deck of the A380. Tons of legroom for 34D!
