The lower deck has the seats in two classes: first and economy. First class (La Première) has 9 open suites. All of them are standard. Economy class of the upper deck consists of three sections.
First section includes 17 rows of seats. There are totally 148 seats here. Most of them have 3-4-3 configuration. The seats of the 10th row are designated by Air France as preferred seats. To reserve these seats an extra fee should be paid. Among disadvantages of these seats is close location of the lavatory and galley.
As there are no seats in front, the seats 11A and 11L have extra legroom. These seats are considered good seats. Proximity of the lavatory and galley may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 11C, 11J, 12C, 12J, 14C, 14J.
Passengers traveling with infants are often seated on the seats 15DEFG as these seats have bassinet location. Also the legroom of these seats is limited. Close location of the lavatory may represent problem as well.
Passengers tend to gather in the area of the last rows of first section causing discomfort to passengers of the seats 26DEFG and for passengers of the 27th row.
Behind the exit row the second section of economy class seats is located. This section has 13 rows of seats containing 121 seats. The seats 30ABC and 30JKL are designated by Air France as preferred seats. An extra fee should be paid to reserve these seats. These seats are considered good seats as passengers of these seats will be able to take advantage of extra space for their legs. However, proximity to the lavatory may cause discomfort. The other seats of the 30th row, i.e. the seats 30DEFG on the contrary have limited legroom because of the bassinets’ location. Close location of the lavatory is another disadvantage of these seats.
Due to missing seat in front, the seat 34D has extra legroom. This seat is designated by Air France as preferred seat to reserve which an extra charge should be paid.
Close location of the galley may represent a problem to passengers of the seats 40DEFG, 42ABC and 42JKL.
Behind another exit row and galleys the third section of economy class seats is located. There are 8 rows of seats here. The seats of the 7 rows have 3-4-3 configuration. The last row has 4 seats. So, there are 74 seats here. The seats of the 45th row have less space for passengers’ legs because of the bassinets location. Proximity of the galleys may cause discomfort as well.
Proximity of the lavatories and stairs will represent a problem for passengers of the seats 51ABC, 51JKL and of the last 52th row of the section. These seats are considered bad seats.
