AF J - Service Ó la franšaise program??

We are fliying LHR - PER with AF Business next month (in 27 days), with the main flight being CDG-SIN. I was searching around on the net found what appears to be quite a recent article about food options;

https://www.inflightfeed.com/airfrance/

On flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Los Angeles, New York, Seoul, Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo passengers in first and business class can access the Service Ó la franšaise (French style) program. It allows you to personalise your dining experience by choosing your meal in advance of your flight.
Anyone know anything about this 'Service Ó la franšaise program' they mention as I cant find it on the AF website.

When I log into my booking online is seems to suggest I can pre-choose my meal, but theres no way to actually choose it. Does anyone have any experience of being able to pre-choose their standard meals? ('Order Now' button does nothing)

Just an update on this. AF conformed to me via Twitter that since July 2019 this is only available on flights to/from Tokyo Haneda.

You can also pre-select your hot meal on New York bound AF006, AF008, AF010, plus AF276 to Narita and AF454-AF456 to Sao Paulo.

Indeed, prime example of service Ó la franšaise!

You got the information on some blog..And the AF website never mentions it.
Maybe the blogger has some advanced information and AF is progressively introducing it on some routes.

Service Ó la franšaise is when you get your meal directly in the galley... Because the service is on strike

If you look at my update post a couple of posts up you can see that AF conformed to me that they have discontinued it on all but a few flights.
Also, I did end up finding mention of it, but only on the Air France US site.
