Air France Flat beds?

Hi there

I am wondering seat guru and the AF website both show the 77W as 2-3-2 in business.

However in Galileo it's showing 1-2-1 for SIN/CDG in OCT 15

Is AF changing over to a 1-2-1 product? If so will it be done by then? If not I will rather book my parents via HK on the A380....

But that seems to not be a fully flat bed? Is that correct?

Thanks in advance!!

Yes, AF is rolling out a new very nice biz seat. And yes it is a fully flat seat. Make a search in the AF sub-forum : plenty of threads about this, including a sticky one (the new seats are referred as BEST). 2-3-2 is the old config for the B777 but still present in 95% of their planes (it is 2-2-2 for the Airbus fleet). If the GDS is showing the new config, then it is the new config. SIN was one of the 1st route to have it (since end september). If you have the choice between the old and the new seats, definitely choose the new one.

It is quite early to be assured that you will get the new seats 10 months from now.
AF just started retrofit on 777 and it will be slow.
But you are sure not to get it on A380 for a couple of years.
