I would expect AF84/85 to usually have P, since the other flight AF82 is operated by the 772, and I would assume SFO is a destination that regularly receives P once a day- but I could be wrong.

That means the fixed-shell PE.

The plan is to take some 77Ws with P out for refit starting within the year, right? Possible then that 48J 77Ws (with the new PE seat) would be the likely replacement (consolation prize of new J and regular LP flyers would have a good shot at the roomy bulkhead seats).

Thanks. From what I see there is P on other flights for the same route that day - I was looking at AF85 vs AF83 on 9/23 - AF83 has P but AF85 (777-300) doesn't. On the next day, AF85 has P but is on a 777-200.

AF85 on the 23rd is currently scheduled for a 48J 77W, which would mean it has the new PE.

For the 24th, AF83 has P, AF85 is on a 772 (both would have hard-shell PE).

Hey all. I've found some of the previous comments here helpful. I'm currently looking at booking an award flight for AF95 on 11/11 from MIA to CDG, and it's scheduled to be on a 777-300ER. I reached out to Air France through WhatsApp and got the seat map for this flight. After comparing it to the seat map from Aerolopa for the 48J configuration, I noticed that it has Recaro PL350 seats, which are reclinable and not the fixed shell design.

Assuming there are no last-minute plane changes, can I be confident that I'll have reclinable seats? Also wish I could post links but unable to since I'm a new member!

That flight is loaded for a 48J 77W, so assuming no aircraft changes, it will be recliner PE.

If the aircraft changes, the 48J A350 (which also has recliners) would be likely if J is close to sold out. If they need Y capacity, though, an aircraft change would likely be fixed shell.
