Review: Air France 777 New Business Class Paris to New York

For the last long-haul flight on my trip to South East Asia, I had the opportunity to try Air France’s newest business class product on a flight from Paris to New York, which first debuted on the Boeing 777-300ER in January 2023.

It isn’t everyday that you get to try out an exciting new product soon after its launch, so I was beyond excited to sample Air France’s latest innovation.

If you’re looking to book Air France business class on points, there are a few loyalty programs worth considering. Your best bet is to look to either Delta SkyMiles or Air France/KLM Flying Blue, and to keep an eye on Flying Blue Promo Rewards each month.

Flying Blue miles in particular are fairly easy to earn, as it’s a 1:0.75 transfer partner of Canadian-issued American Express Membership Rewards points and a 1:1 transfer partner of US-issued Membership Rewards points.

Additionally, it’s a good idea to look out for attractive cash fares, which are usually more affordable when travelling from Europe to North America, but not vice versa.

For this Paris to New York route on Air France’s new 777 business class, I was able to snag a seat by redeeming 55,000 Flying Blue miles plus $300 (CAD) in taxes and fees. This matched the lowest fare listed on Flying Blue’s chart for travel between Europe and North America.
