Good day BT, and a Merry christmas to all!
Asking on behalf of a friend: Opinions on AF’s Premium Economy offering on their A340s? He’s looking to fly DTW-CDG on the said aircraft (as that’s the best deal he’s getting). We couldn’t find any online reviews. The best I got was youtube video which was a walkthrough of the A340 but they just pass through the PE cabin in a few seconds, nothing more.

Haven’t used it but a friend who is a frequent and discriminating traveler has, on the 777s, and says it’s very good, compares it favourably with Lufthansa for quality and value. Transit at CDG is horrible but for that route there is no transit.26 Dec 2017
Used Premium Economy on A380 Paris to Johannesburg. The only slight negative is that I found the seat not as soft and padded as I would have liked. Otherwise everything else was good. I think the seat on the A340 is same as the A380.26 Dec 2017
Seat is not very good, and unless you friend gets the first raw, doesn’t offer much legroom (it slides so recline comes at the cost of legroom). Better privacy than eco, and I think better food. But it offers fast track all the way and a great transit at CDG, when applicable.
capetonianm: Transit at CDG improved massively a couple of years ago to become in my view the second best hub (when flying AF) after LHR T5.30 Dec 2017
