Premium Economy Vs Exit Row in A330-200

Which is is a better option in AF A330-200. (BLR-CDG), Premium Economy or the exit row seat in Row 29? Premium Economy costs 250$ while the exit row is a free selection. Thanks

Is it a night flight ?
is money the most important matter ?
are you tall ?
dont you mind additional noise (engines and people walking around) ?

If you answer yes to these 4 questions , then choose the exit row

Thank you. It is a night flight, money is not the most important factor and I am not very tall. I guess both are good options

Reading you, I have the feeling that you are booked in Y and that you are proposed a paid upgrade for W ? If yes, keep in mind that the proposal may disappear at any minute if other pax are taking it. So if that's what you want, you should hurry up to take it. Back to your question, if this is a night flight, I would take the Seat+ in Y. On a day flight, W would have been much better.

My Ticket is 'L' Class. I would like to upgrade to business class, but see the option only for Premium Economy during the Online check-in.
This upgrade seems NOT a fare class upgrade, just a seat upgrade

J may be full. Or if they have only 2 or 3 seats remaining, they may want to keep them for last minutes sales/change of booking. You can ask at check-in at the airport.

A paid upgrade does change the bucket you are booked in, but you move to an upgrade bucket fare which is not the same as a revenue bucket fare. It means that you still earn XP for your originally-booked class (if you are a FB member) and the conditions of your Y ticket still apply.

One other consideration. Your Y seat is windows. Your upgraded permium ec is aisle. If it is an overnight flight, my choice would be Y since I sleep better on window seat, leaning my head to window. Of course each his/her preference, but this is how it works for me.
