1A or 1L?

Dear insiders,
I booked my first "la Première" tickets (CDG-SFO roundrip in April, not sure I'll be able to enter USA though...), and I see on the seatmap that both restrooms are in left aisle. Is that annoying when trying to sleep in 1A? (I prefer to have my window facing north so I was planning to be in 1A on the way back to CDG).
Thanks!!!

It's not an issue as 1A is sufficiently far enough away from the restroom. There's actually only one, the second is for crew though you'll be invited to use it if the other is in use.

Seat 1L is close to the galley so there's slightly more disturbance there as the aisle is busier.

To me, it's really a matter of personal preferences. Considering the low number of P passengers right now, you won't be annoyed much during the flight.

I am used to be in 1L while I am actually writing from 1A

Despite the catastrophic ground service yesterday in CDG (described in Ulti thread), excellent attention from the crew today

Thank you, so I'll try both ;-)
Enjoy your trip matmatlr !

Assuming that the LPL has not reopened in 3 weeks, is there quiet room or sleep/nap room space in the current J lounge/mezzanine set up?

Indeed, it will probably not be opened
Renovation is completed but got confirmation this morning that it will not reopen before the P passenger volume increases

You do have a relaxation area; not similar than the one in P lounge but enough to be able to sleep considering the low number of passengers

Merci matmatlr. That's good to know as I'll be there for 10 hours and will want to nap between my various Alain Ducasse meals.

I can only second the decision of a very long layover to space out the meals ! I almost made myself sick a couple of days ago because I had lunch in the lounge and food again in the plane 2-3 hours later, to a point where it was slightly unpleasant so yeah. Keep yourself hungry !

Yes, it's a very nice wine. I'm in the construction equipment business, some years I have been lucky to get a case. I've not been at the Château but at his head office in beautiful old building downtown Bordeaux and it is impressive! Have met Jean Claude but not Clément.

I'm trying to find the dedicated La Premiere phone number for Air France. I can't seem to find this number in any of my confirmations for my upcoming P flight CDG-SFO. Am a bit tired of the long hold times when calling into the regular reservation number (I have no status on AF).

Would be appreciative of any help.

Wondering the same here! Unfortunately no "discounted" LP fairs seen for a while... did book it last October for a bargain. Same route as you're asking
