Have you ever traveled in an empty J cabin on AF?

I'm on AF366 on February 20 from CDG to Philadelphia. I called to make my seat assignments and the reservations agent was a bit shocked: he said Tempo had a decent crowd but I was the only person holding a reservation in Affaires/Business. He remarked he's never seen an empty cabin this close (under 3 weeks) to departure time.

I'm sure it'll fill up between now and then. But has anyone ever flown AF over the Atlantic in a practically empty cabin before?

I was the only passenger in AF F before, but I suppose that isn't that unusual.

Not on AF.

But MsShark and I were the only ones in J on a NWA 742 (int'l config, not beach market special) from NRT to SIN during the SARS outbreak.

Same here, not on AF but have done on BA from KIN to LGW....kinda weird and on the return there were two of us in Business and the Chief Purser asked us if we would permit them to upgrade on this flight...we had no objection and so they upgraded three others.....this was in 1999 mind you!
