"seat wouldn't recline very far"

(Hong Kong)

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.

"very cramped seats"

(United States)

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.

"squeezing into the seat was incredibly difficult"

(United Kingdom)

I was quite surprised at just how bad the seating was aboard our Air France 747. I consider myself to be of average build and height and fairly fit yet squeezing into the seat was incredibly difficult. There was approximately one inch of space between my knees and the seat in front far less than the majority of short-haul flights I make. Extricating myself from the seat to get to the bathroom involved disturbing the two people sat next to me who were forced to get out of their seat and pile into the galley area because I wanted to leave. After the problems I faced when I first attempt to get out of my seat I gave in and remained stationary for the remainder of the flight. I dread to think how unpleasant the flight would have been if I was over 6 feet or weighed more than average. I have since recommended that all of my friends and colleagues avoid Air France at all costs.

"like sitting on a plastic chair"

(United Kingdom)

CDG-Tokyo. It was the worst flight in my life. The seat was hard enough to feel like sitting on a plastic chair. My back was very painful after a 12hr flight. I chose the flight because it was the first time to fly with them and was the only flight departing Tokyo in late evening. I never fly their B777-300ER 3x4x3 layout aircraft again.

"way too narrow seating"

(Germany)

Perfect flight but way too narrow seating in eco/tempo. No chance to get a sleep under these conditions. Not recommended.

"much better seating"

(Germany)

CDG-JFK. Much better seating compared to Air France 777 models. I recommend choosing the 330 if possible.

"narrowest Y seat I've ever experienced"

(Austria)

CDG to Tokyo - the narrowest Y seat I've ever experienced. Took the flight because it was cheap turned out to be a mistake. Never ever want to fly on such a cramped plane again horrible.

"very tight seat pitch"

(Belgium)

Very tight seat pitch for long haul travel and not recommended at all. If in economy try to obtain an exit row seat or seat 31K.

"seats felt very cramped"

(United States)

Seats felt very cramped - worst I've ever experienced. Who is the genius that decided to put in new thickly padded and sculpted seats (which push you closer to the seat in front) with the most recline I've ever seen in Economy but kept the seat pitch at 31-32"? When the seat in front reclined the video screen was 8" in front of my face and it is impossible to reach the floor or stand up for that matter. It is ridiculously tight unless you are under 5'6".

"would not recommend these seats"

(United States)

Not only would I not recommend these seats I will never fly on Air France again. I have never seen seats so close together. There was no leg room and I'm not a large person. As for the recline - the head of the passenger in front of me was practically in my lap.
