    Would ahving access to the info about r seats help?

    There are still 16 open J seats and since CDG is not much of a code share airport for AC you should be ok for a gate upgrade or you will have it by the time you check in if you are SE. It always helps to let the board know your FF status.

    Make sure you check in at exactly flight time minus 24 hours as well.

    Just to clarify ... AC holds back business class seats until check-in time, in case it is able to sell them. Only the R fare class is released (and on your flight those have already been snapped up), others are not until check-in time. As guinnessxyz says, you have a good chance of getting an upgrade at the gate.
