We took off on time from Runway 26R, the 4k camera front camera view is very clear even at night.

I'd say Premium Economy Class food can be improved and distinguished better than standard economy meals since passenger pays more.
The new refurbished B777-300/ER also came with internet connectivity, which on older Air France B777 was lacking in the past.2nd meal before landing. A cold brioche bun with egg salad. I think this meal is fairly simple and can be improved.
The weather in New York was very bad with rain and low visibility. Our plane was on hold for 40 minutes before cleared to ILS approach on Runway 13L. Watch the exciting landing at JFK in my video.
It is great that Air France has finally started refurbishing the 12 older B777-300/ER (with angle flat 2-3-2 Business Class) with the new configuration. This will provide their entire long haul fleet with flat bed in Business Class.
3 refurbished Air France 777-300/ER (F-GZNK, F-GZNS, F-GZNQ) currently flies between Paris and New York JFK (AF22/15), Dakar and Rio with this new configuration. 9 more B777 will be refurbished by the end of this year.
I think the trend in long haul Business Class is clearly adding extra privacy. We have seen Qatar Airways QSuite, ANA The Room, BA and Etihad new Business Class, and now Air France is also joining the bandwagon. However, Air France said they will not refurbish the existing long haul (4 class) 777 Business Class with the new privacy door.
