Great TR that really captured the experience and kudos on the calories you knocked back! (and as a greedy bugger big-boned lad I'm not normally impressed easily )

I've got five R/T CDG to JNB in La Premiere booked for this year

They typically came in at about 200 above the cost of AF Business on a BHX-CDG-JNB-DUR routing and about 1k cheaper than VS Upper (the carrier my client typically uses) and 2k cheaper than BA CW, so there are some decent fares out there. So I'm in the good books for keeping the costs down and get La Premiere. That is definitely Win-Win.

I probably would have been disappointed with Krug on board, unless I had my fill of the Alexandra in the lounge.
The P lounge is one of a kind. The standards of food and drink are exceptional. If anything it looks like onboard has now caught up though as early on it was a bit less nice comparatively. Quite an improvised tasting menu here!!

The cabin looks so beautiful! All of those warm earth tones and the curtains. It seems like the right mix to afford privacy without claustrophobia.
What was in the black and white dessert on the far right?

I am quite sure that the 747-400 you saw on the ground was a member fo the Dubai Air Wing fleet. Their aircraft serve the UAE royal family.
Odd that it has sort of TWA stripes.

But a lovely tempting TR, nonetheless!
but you could fly AF and use cdg as a transfer airport... No different than FRA and LH F as some people like to do :-)

What a lovely review. It seems to confirm that AF First is a top-notch product. Arguably one of the best out there.

Food looks way too fancy for me.

My husband would love 4 windows.

Thanks for posting.

Hard to complain about AF's 787 service ex-BOS, but LP was worth the schlep down to JFK, IME. Certainly appears to be the case for you as well. Thanks for posting, Yahtzee!
