Thanks very useful! Could I suggest making this a sticky and updating as new information comes? I think this is a very important piece of information for many of us!

What about IAD?

Thanks, good to know.

Has anyone heard anything about upgrading the 777 on CDG-IAD route?

I am seeing new C on the HND (AF274/293) flights after 10 Nov too.

(as also reported in separate HND and WOW threads)

This puzzles me.

First, the info is a bit different from the seat maps loaded by AF (e.g. the two HND flights seem to have the new seats by late November). I wonder who is right. Also would be useful to know whether those flights with NEW are daily or every other day.

Second, I try to infer the delivery schedule from this table. It seems that a single 772 is in operation since June on AF8/9, although that is underutilizing the frame as it is idle for some 6 hours at CDG.

If the info above is correct, a second 772 will start operating HND from October 26 AF274/293 every other day. It is even given daily after 10/11 on AF seat maps. The schedule for 274/293 is a bit strange. It leaves CDG at 23:25 (say Monday) arrives HND 19:25 (Tuesday) spends 4 hours there, leaves at 00:30 and returns at CDG at 05:30 (tuesday). Then it seems idle till the evening which is unlikely. That frame could be used for some other route, but I do not see any other scheduled addition from October in the Table above.
I do not know how AF manages its fleet but I would expect frames would do a mixture of extra LH and short LH to optimize utilization.

Anyone with better information on frame utilization and the exact number of planes being delivered between June 2014 and March 2015 (9 months)? A possible guess is 8 772 and 4 773, but there could be more if some new frames are used to offer a daily flight to extra LH. And I guess that the new F will only be available on 29 September.

I suppose there's a slight typo here as AF253 does SGN-CDG; would it be AF259 instead?

Regarding seat maps and actual seat selection, any idea when it will be available? Is there a general rule for how long time in advance they are published?

What do you mean ? For the flight I booked to HND, I had access to the seat map, as usual (but displaying the new cabin).

I'm sorry if my question wasn't clear.

I was playing around with dates for CDG-SIN (ie after Sept 29th 2014), and I'm seing some dates with the old seat map (2-3-2 configuration) and other dates with the new seat map (1-2-1). Is this a bug in the interface, or will there be a mix of old and new seat configurations?

In other words, as I'm booked on a SIN-CDG early October with a seat map that has not changed since the booking date (ie the old configuration), will I get the old or the new seat?
