This is wierd....BE ticket = La Premiere seat on AF

I just purchased tickets to Madrid via IAD-CDG-MAD on delta.com (I was going to do the PVD-DTW-ATL-CDG-MAD, but I had a voucher on USAirways that I used to get from PVD-IAD) and on the IAD-CDG, I originally selected L'Esapace Affaires cabin via the delta website on the AF B777, but on the seat map, Row 1 was available, so I selected 1A. Upon a confirmation with seatguru.com, Row 1 on the 777-200 is the La Premiere cabin.

Will Delta or Air France realize this error, or will they let it slide?

In the seatmap did it show 1a with no 1b? AEFL should be the only option if it really is the AF FC cabin.

Log into your PNR on AF's website and see if you have this seat. DL's seat maps are a bit unreliable when it comes to AF.

Definitely select a seat through the Air France website... for my first AF flights I selected through the DL website and had DL BPs printed (first leg was DL metal), only to have AF re-issue BPs with completely different (horrible, middle/back) seats once I arrived at my AF departing airport... it was a fight to get decent seats that were not as good as those I had selected on the DL website.

I just went and retrieved my AF itinerary from the AF website to see if the seats held:



Departure flight Thursday, May 21, 2009
AF039 4:40 PM Washington, Dulles Intl (IAD) DC - u. s. a. 6:10 AM
+1 Day Paris, Charles de Gaulle (CDG) - France 10h40mn non stop,
777200
La Première P

AF1000 7:15 AM
+1 Day Paris, Charles de Gaulle (CDG) - France 9:20 AM
+1 Day Madrid, Barajas (MAD) - Spain non stop,
A 320
Affaires C

So, I guess that it held from the Delta website, so I'm not going to complain....

Well, if it's a bug, and you posted it here, it will now get fixed.

DL loves to lurk...and it shows.
