Air France - only Premium Economy?


Looking at booking a flight from LAX to Papeete in March 2015. However whichever flight I choose the only economy option is Premium Economy. Am I missing something or are all flights with AF Premium only?

Late March possible? Check to see if it's a code share with Air Tahiti Nui try their site.

We just flew Air France, Premium Economy. They fly planes with 3 tiered cabins - business (with flat bed seats), premium economy (similar to domestic first class) and economy. The premium economy is only 3 row s of 2-4-2. On both our flights, economy was full, premium economy had some empty seats, and business had even more empty seats. We booked premium economy and appreciated the extra legroom, comfy seats and better food options.

I have been reading reviews stating that AF Premium Economy seats do not recline and while they afford extra legroom are terribly stiff and uncomfortable. Was this not the case for you? I have already booked for a September trip and am wondering if that was not a wise choice...

Air France permium economy seats do recline, but are rock hard. As long as you bring something to put under your butt, they are a fairly comfortable ride with a lot of pitch. They are better than economy, but don't think you're getting anything even close to business.
