Added the planes which have WiFi to the Wiki. Five of them already, some of them still with the old cabin.

I am fairly certain F-GZCC is the one that is currently being refurbished in CDG, it hasn't flown since May 5th. Also F-GZCK has been flown to Bordeaux a few days ago. That may be for a new cabin, not sure though, we can check in the next couple of days whether she'll be flying.

Have W seats from SEA-CDG June 20. The seatmap has indicated the new retrofitted layout for sometime now.

EF notice for my flight next week looks to have swapped out the new A332 for the old A332 based on the seat map.

F-GZCC is now back in the air for several weeks. New seats on board?

Old seats, no WiFi. Makes you wonder what it was doing out of service all that time.

Hey williwaw, how was your flight from SEA? New seats? I'm flying out 7/6 and am curious if I'll get angle flat or lie flat.

Sadly equipment change 5 days out to the old plane. And they lost a bag that is still 6 days later on its own Tour de France.....

Ugh. That's what I'm afraid of. But thanks for the report. And hope you get your bag soon.

It seems like my trip to BLR will have the old A330 on the way down but the new cabin on the way back. Thought it was supposed to transition earlier this summer, but at least I'll get it for the crappier overnight flight.

Just flew SEA-CDG on F-GZCI. Gorgeous retrofit! My only issue is the loss of the bathroom up front. The single bathroom for all J class saw a lot of folks waiting around in the galley. But the loo does have a lovely window! On a side note, do not get the orecchiette - yikes. The absolute worst meal I have EVER had on a plane (economy or business) but luckily they swapped it out for the cod which was delish even if it as cod!

IAD-CDG in November is showing an A330 with the new configuration instead of an A380. I hope they keep it as I am not looking forward to an A380 in any cabin (other than P, which I am not flying of course )

The A380 has always been seasonal as far as I can remember for AF54/55. During the winter it is served by a 773.

The A330 is a prologation of the AF26/27 which was seasonal operated currently/traditionally by a 772. So they are keeping the 2nd flight thru the winter season and the A330 replaces the 772.
