    This from Value Luxury Lab a few days ago.
    They do not discuss losing about 50 seats per day. The 777-300 is far more economical and is better equipped than the old 747-400 it replaces, especially in the new business class. The other A330 flight remains as is.

    Air France operates flights between Paris and Rio de Janeiro, uninterrupted, for nearly 60 years - is one of the oldest routes of the Company. Currently, the airline connects the City of Light Marvelous City with two flights daily. Reaffirming its continued investment in Brazil and Rio de Janeiro market, Air France brings its newest Boeing 777-300 to operate one of its daily flights between the two cities .
    This aircraft also offers the Rio market the latest news on products and services with Air France: its new Business Class, which adds 27% more space for its passengers. We invested 110 million euros in three years on this new project . A chair specially designed to meet the needs of clients provides a new seat in a fixed structure that ensures more privacy and turns into a flat bed 2m long and 61cm wide. The seat controls and other functions have been simplified, leaving more intuitive, extra space for luggage was added, as well as a larger screen, touch screen, 15-inch 16:9 format. Headset noise reduction, hypoallergenic feather pillow, blanket, pure wool, makeup bag and new sophisticated menu of dishes and beverages, promoting a true gourmet experience, are also part of the renovated Executive. This class passengers also have access to nearly 500 lounges, including Rio and Sao Paulo.

    Waht a nice little treat. Not too long ago those little chocolates were routine just before landing. I guess now they're just for special occasions.
