Air France Affaires 777-300ER

We booked award seats for December to CDG and are (as of now) scheduled to be on a 777-300ER. According to seatmap, no First Class, so bulkhead row in Business/Affaires is row 1A/B, etc.

Is it best to get bulkhead row? we have read that the seats are uncomfortable as they are not lie flat, but angled and there is small plastic shell that your feet fit into in all the seats except bulkhead seat.

Any suggestions as to which seats are better in this cabin? We will be seated on the sides with two seats. Thankfully not in the middle where there are 3.

I did, but it does not show anything other than two that are not as good towards the lavs. When I google any reviews on the seat, some say it is better in bulkhead so your feet are not restricted and others say it is better not in bulkhead. Contradicting info. I am thinking of reserving bulkhead on way out and non on the return.

I don't find the seats uncomfortable at all. I would prefer a true flat bed, but the AF seats are pretty comfortable for an angled product.

As for which seats, I would probably go for the bulkhead, but they aren't that much better than the other seats.

Great, thanks for the info. Can I ask why the bulkhead if you had a choice? Right now, seat map is open so i have option of 1 a/b on outbound and 1 k/l on return.

The bulkheads are open. In the other seats, you are in a bit of a box. The seats are a rigid shell and you slide down within the shell. This also makes it harder to get out if in the window seat, and the aisle seat is occupied. Not a huge deal, and it isn't like I feel constrained in the regular seats, but I prefer the openness of the bulkheads. If you otherwise don't like the bulkhead (e.g. Light from the galley bothers you), then I'd book one of the other seats.

Like I said, not a huge difference to me, but the bulkheads win by a narrow margin.
