BOS-CDG Route: Old or New J?

For Xmas this year...considering a trip to Paris. Is BOS-CDG-BOS on AF guaranteed new seats?

What about on DL (some people have been saying good things about DL...?)?

Whatís the aircraft ?
if B772 or B787 : New J
if B77W, it depends. So when you book on AF website, if new J, you will have a little logo with ę design+ Ľ written
if other aircraft : NEV4

Regarding DL, it is certainly a very decent carrier in J, but I donít like at all their Delta1 seat in the 767 that they are using on many routes ex-CDG including BOS. I prefer the AF NEV4 seat to this one. I know not everyone agree with me about that on this forum, but thatís my opinion

Delta has a decent J product, although there are two planes that have worse J product:
- 757 has smaller and shorter seats (usually flown on transcons between east coast and west coast, but just in case ...), you usually want to avoid these if you can
- 767 has a narrower seat and you may feel a little cramped and as Goldorak says there's an unending debate about whether it's better or worse seat than AF NEV4 (me siding with 767 D1 seat ), but unlike NEV4 it's a flat bed and you have an adjacent table (such as if you're using PC etc.)

Delta also has wifi available (haven't flown TATL flight with Delta, but on TPAC I had wifi).

I think CDG-BOS on AF metal would be on the 787, so that'd be the new J product.

I would vote for AF hands-down. I find the DL seat hard and the service/food/etc classless.

Let's not go into NEV4 vs D1 767 again , but speaking of the food & service I'd say AF is better than DL in J. Not saying DL J is bad, but I like AF more.
