AIR FRANCE PREMIUM ECONOMY CLASS SEAT REVIEW - BOEING 777

The hard shell seats were very uncomfortable, with very limited recline. In addition, the premium economy cabin was in very poor condition, with obvious wear and tear that compromised some seat functions (such as the leg rest). The 8-across seating meant the seats were very narrow -- virtually the same width as the economy class cabin. In addition, on two separate long-haul flights one of the two toilets was not working.

Not close to worth the added expense. As noted in other posts, the seats are rock-hard and the recline feature is either not functioning or awkward and uncomfortable. On both A380 and 777, they looked good from a distance, but showed incredible wear and inattention to maintenance. In a word, shabby. Customer service was nonexistent as to seat selection and my wife and I were arbitrarily separated on both LAX-CDG and return. No one could do anything about it despite requests weeks before the flights, days before flights, or at check-in. The only real benefit was the priority boarding, but I'd rather save my money and upgrade to business. This is no alternative.

I flew with Air France from San Francisco to Paris. The premium economy seat on this flight is the worst seat I've ever experienced. No recline, the seat just drops a few inches when you push the recline button. Also, the seat is hard as a rock; it's more comfortable to sit on a park-bench. To add insult to injury, the entertainment-screen did not work.

The seat did not actually recline, it sort of slid down and the front edge of the bottom seat cushion moved forward. However, it didn't reach a position which was comfortable. The "footrest" was terrible, it was really a "legrest" that only extended about 2/3 the way from my knees to my ankles, but all it did was press against my calves and cut off the circulation. It was also difficult to put back, had to press hard against it with my legs while pushing a button on the inside arm of the seat. The table, which was stored in the seat arm, did not slide forward enough to provide room between it and my stomach - I'm not particularly large, so I don't know how someone who is heavier would even manage to use the table. I had to have the seat completely in the upright position to be able to use the table at all, and it was rather awkward trying to eat with it that close. Also, the seat adjustment buttons are right under where the table hinges, so it's essentially impossible to adjust the seat when the table is out. We were sitting in the first row on the right side of the plane, so had lots of legroom; I give the normal seats 4 of 5 based on my observation, but I'm not very tall, so don't need a lot of legroom. The video screen was in the other arm of the seat, position when out was OK but not great, a little low and of course off center.

Adequate width. Hardly any recline. Seat bsase moves forward slightly and back rest moves with it to provide a minimum but not a comfortable amount. Lower part of seat doubles as a rest for upper legs (activated by button on seat). Base of seat in front has foot rest. However the seats are so close together than when the seat is in the reclined position and the leg rest raised, it is impossible- even to rest feet on for rest as it is too close. I am of short stature and I was unable to sit comfortably for this reason. I found it necessary either to have my feet supported which led to fatigue in the upper legs or to have my upper legs supported meaning that my feet were "dangling". Sleep was possible but only just. Lights from other passenger´ seats and screens is very intrusive and impedes sleep. Everything is very close together giving no sense of privacy. The seat rows are so close that anyone sitting away from the aisle can only exit if the passenger on the aisle seat moves, which is inconvenient for all. Unlike other reviewers I did not suffer any back pain or other serious discomfort but did not feel rested. The seat I had originally been assigned to was broken- the lower left rest disengaged and rose immediately I sat down - the latching mechanism was defective. This problem could not be sorted out before departure. However I was able to move to the next seat in the row. If this had not been the case then I suspect I would not have been allowed to use the seat during take off and landing since I could not sit in the "upright" position. Also the raised footrest would have impeded exit of the passenger sitting in the middle seat, posing a safety hazard. The seats appeared to be superior to the economy seats as far as the width was concerned. However I do not consider the extra cost to be justified. The price differential compared to what is on offer is far higher than e.g. from economy to business.

After 40 years of intensive international travel, I can safely say that these are the worst seats I have ever had the misfortune to occupy. In addition to which, the service was almost non-existent and definitely not worth the premium price over a regular Y Class seat.

11 hour flight from Paris to Mauritius, the seats were rock hard and very little leg room to move about in. IFE system was very bad and broken. The stewardess couldn't fix my screen, so I had to basically spend 10 hours not being able to sleep or entertain myself.

The seats were hard, narrow and very short which cut off circulation, we were crammed into centre positions our knees hit the seat in front and the person next to me who was a little larger spread across my shoulder and had monopoly of the tiny hard little arm rest. The person in front threw back their seat and when we complained at mealtime, we were told he was asleep and would we please leave him be. On arrival after a 13 hour trip over night with no sleep and the agony of such confinement our feet and ankles were swollen and we felt absolutely battered. Unfortunately we had flown to Paris 4 weeks before and it was exactly the same for this our return journey so we knew what we could expect.

Shanghai-Paris and return - seats are narrow and require more padding. Both flights- tried looking cabins (showing wear & tear) and very poor IFE. I was quite surprised that Air France would operate these tried looking B777 on the Shanghai route. Cabin service good, food average. IFE quality was very poor considering competition. I recommend Air France take a note of CX cabin revamp program and IFE system. I expected the fine French experience but did not get it.

I am used to business class seats with flat bed for overnight, but these are Great seats for daytime (we departed 4:30 pm JFK to Paris arriving midnight our biological time, and returned during the day) Crew very attentive, meals quite good, my 6'2'' husband was pleasantly surprised, quiet section curtained off from crowded economy section. Had seen previously negative reviews but we were totally satisfied and felt it is worth the extra cost.

Let's start with the fact that these are better than economy seats. Your own mini-section, the shell feature, PTV, better service are all perks. The downside is the padding…- it is like sitting on a board. I brought an extra pillow to sit on but it didn't help that much. Secondly is the recline. It's odd and doesn't really recline - it slides forward. With that said, take a look at the cabin behind to your rear and see how comfortable they look.

The Premier Voyageur cabin is intimate in size but spacious. While the seats in this class are far superior to those in coach class, there are drawbacks. The fixed seat shell is marvelous as passengers do not encroach into other passengers' space, but the recline mechanism could be improved to provide greater comfort. I fly the LAX-CDG route annually and it is annoying that on every trip, the passenger sitting behind me kept their window shades open or kept their reading light on, throughout the flight. There should be a period during the flight when passengers should be able to sleep. The service, as always (at least in my experience flying AF), is superior. The food can be questionable but I will likely order the special meals for my next trip, which appear to be superior to the standard meals offered.

CDG-MEX, seat 53K. It's in the narrower part of the aircraft at the rear so there are only 2 seats instead of 3 on the windows side. IFE box was under the seat in front of me but to I was not too bothered by it. The seat is away from the cabin wall and this gives you several windows and a sensation of space. You get your own storage space between the seat and the wall which can also serve as a table. Although it will be shared with the person behind you. Getting things in and out of it means removing anything sitting on top. The IFE was okay, selection of programs was fair. However to select anything on the screen you had to press hard which makes you shake the seat in front of you. I had to endure that from the lady behind me. Food and drink service was very good for Economy.

Air France Premium Economy. Downside a bit expensive upgrade, no toilets but they didn't seem to object to us using first class toilets. Those who put down these seats have not sat in Air France economy - which is horrible. I am only 5'6" but the economy seats have no padding.

I traveled in the lower-level economy cabin, in the last row of the cabin. The seats barely reclined at all. I complained to the hostess, as this was an overnight transatlantic flight. She informed me that all seats in the economy cabin had the same pitch. Needless to say I spent a very uncomfortable night.

Flew AF economy HK to Paris. Never again! I'm not a small person at 6ft tall and 120kg and to me it was torture. I never got comfortable in all 13 hours 40 minutes of flying. Very narrow seat, poor recline and 2 empty seats next to me I could not take advantage of because the armrests were fixed! The TV was quite blurry too.

We paid a lot to travel Voyageur class which is Air France's version of Premium Economy. Do not believe the video on the AF website and do not believe the hype. The seats are narrow and have been designed so badly, that you have no chance of a restful flight. You just slide down and your knees bang into the seat in front. You get plastic cutlery and cups and same food as economy. Do not pay for this class of fare. There is very little difference to their AF economy class. The service is the same, non-existent. Makes me ashamed to hold a French passport. Never again.

I literally thought it was a joke - that's how uncomfortable this seat (and hence the entire trip) was. I'm not exactly skinny but neither am I obese yet this seat was so narrow it cut off circulation to my thighs. To make matters worse, my shoulders and upper arms kept bumping up against the passenger to my right (I was in an aisle seat) to the point where I finally had to get up and pace around the plane to relieve the discomfort. Throughout the entire trip from Miami to Paris, I was lucky if I was able to sleep for 20 minutes. I arrived at my destination in the Middle East feeling like I'd been run over by a truck.

In their Premium Voyageur cabin Air France has achieved the remarkable feat of making providing a seat which is uncomfortable for both my wife (5'6" and of medium build) and myself (6'4" and of heavier build). They are hard. The recline is very limited when it works and the fixed head rest is too low to support the head of anyone with any height. These problems were compounded by the failure to carry extension belts which fit the short seat-belts fitted on the second and third of the three rows (I was able to use the belt on the A319 on the connecting flight without difficulty). I therefore had to be transferred to the front row. This has a bulkhead which diminishes the value of the extra leg-room when the seat is upright: when I tried to use the (limited) recline , an extension came out which pinned my feet to the bulkhead. In short this cabin is over-priced, offering less than the preferred seats in the Air Canada Economy cabin

AF seats narrow and hard and it was very difficult to get comfortable. Also, I have short legs and the absence of a footrest is a real problem - I had to place cushions on the floor & place my feet on them to ensure adequate circulation in my legs. My impression from 6 SIN-CDG legs is that the planes need a cabin refit with more comfortable seats. On the other hand, I would rate AF ahead of Qantas's mediocre international economy offerings.

I flew in the A380 going from CDG to IAD and then came back in the A330 ORD to CDG. The 380 seat was spacious with a large screen while the A330 was cramped and had the tiniest of screens. I gave such a poor rating for the recline due to when the person reclines completely in front, you can't eat easily, get out of your seat, see the TV screen very well or feel like you can breathe. I didn't feel comfortable putting my seat all way back in consideration of the person behind. The seats also lead to people behind pulling on your seat when they try and get up and down from these cramped positions. I will try and avoid this aircraft in the future on AF.

11hr flight from Paris Orly to La Reunion. By far the narrowest seat I have ever sat in. I think it was even narrower than the seats on Ryanair, which is a budget airline. Legs were pressed right into back of the seat in front and when they reclined it was game over. Never again. It is strange as I use Air France on European flights as well and the seats on the smaller aircraft are wider and with more legroom!

Aisle seat at emergency exit, so legroom not a problem. Seat is the narrowest I have ever sat on - perhaps it is slightly narrower than all the other economy seats to incorporate the tray table in the armrest? Also the hardest seat I ever experienced. How an airline can expect anyone to sit on this hard seat for twelve hours is beyond me. Given cramped seating and the harness of the seat I will never choose Air France for intercontinental travel again.

CDG to HKG with B777-300 and HKG to CDG with B777-200. Economy class on the day to HKG from CDG was full. Very cramped cabin with 3x4x3 configuration. The seat on the aircraft was like wooden bench. I felt that the seat on B777-200 on the way back to CDG was a bit better. Has AF improved the seat? Either way, their economy seat is far from satisfactory. Also, on the way back to CDG, they ran out of food available between first and second meal. If you take a long haul flight with AF, make sure that you take some food with you, just like the time you take a budget airline.

I was stunned to find the seats so miserably uncomfortable for an intercontinental flight. The seats were extremely narrow, short, and very hard, with very little leg room. It became impossible for me to get comfortable in any way to be able to relieve pressure on my legs, or sleep on my flight. There was absolutely zero room for anyone to get out of his/her seat to go to the restroom without having the entire row get up as well to let them out. I will never fly with Air France again because of this level of discomfort.

Premium economy Paris-Osaka for 11 hours. I sat at the front of the premium economy cabin. Pros- more legroom than the standard premium economy seats. Cons the tray tables are in the arms and not as large as the normal seats which makes working on a laptop a little less convenient. Overall I would certainly choose this seat again. I had a day flight both ways so did not try to sleep. Seat was comfortable for the duration and I did not find it too hard. As I was working most of the flight I didn't use the recline much but it seemed OK. The laptop power is standard 240V and either a standard French type or US plug will fit. It is limited in power and my laptop, which is fairly low power, would only work if the battery was taken out. That said the supply never faltered. Video was good with a reasonable large screen (although nobody could describe it as pin sharp) and a good choice of current films and TV shows. The earphones are OK but I used my own which plugged into a single 3.5mm socket so there was no need for an adapter. Service was OK, not bad but not exceptional and the food was standard economy fare, OK but nothing to get excited about. Overall a very pleasant flight and I don't think that I would have had much of a better flight in business class (but I wasn't trying to sleep). Overall plenty of room, good comfort and easy boarding, disembarking. Highly recommended.

Flew the new AF Premium economy product. Pros: hard shell seat gives feeling of extra space, and good AV (with noise reducing headphones, and slot for own 'phones). Socket for laptop also handy tho' not used by me. Seat reclines (actually it "declines" in its shell) enough to aid sleep. Ticket class enables you to access AF lounge at CDG for a fee. The seat is very thin, and very uncomfortable over a long flight. I bought a cushion in SCL for the return route but still had "numb bum". This detracts heavily from an otherwise good product. Please, AF, put some more padding in the seat cushion!

Entertainment is excellent. But the seat configuration on B777-300 at 3x4x3 makes it hard to survive after a 11 hours flight. AF should definitely think about passenger confort. I will never board those 777 again and I will prefer to choose another airline than AF on my next long haul flights to HKG and ICN.

12 hours from Hong Kong to Paris was awful - my seat wouldn't recline very far, as I was in front of the toilet - the seat width was the worst ever, as was the pitch (especially when reclining). 3x4x3 isn't the normal seating configuration on a 777, which explains why it was so cramped, even for someone as short as I am.

This BOS-CDG flight was the worst transatlantic flight I've ever taken. Very cramped seats, I'm small (5'2"), not obese, and could barely fit into it. When person next to me pressed on arm rest, it pinced my thigh enough to make me jump once or twice. Seat so cramped that I could hardly move around to relieve pressure on legs. Will never take this particular flight again.
