We just returned from a trip using Premium Voyager and I would agree with most of your comments.
The seats were roomy but so hard as to be worse than coach. My short girlfriend would have been thrilled to be allowed to move to coach on the way out, the seats were so hard. While in Italy, I had to buy her a pillow to sit on for our return flight. Then I swiped two pillows from business class on the way in for our return flight. I figured someone in business class had a better chance of getting a stolen pillow replaced than we had of getting extra pillows in PV. zi was right. Other people in PV asked for more pillows but were told none were available. The pillows helped a little.
Because the seats are in a shell, they slide rather than recline. We found them awkard to adjust and almost impossible to return to the upright position. Other people near us also complained about the seats.
If you look at a photo of the seats, you will see the snake-like reading lights. They are placed so low in the shell that they sometimes get in the way. And I read elsewhere that they break a lot.
The tv screens may be large, but on the 10.5 hour return flight, my girlfriend's tv was broken. The flight attendant kept saying it might reboot eventually, but I think that was just to stop us from complaining. There were no empty seats to which she could move. Eventually a senior flight attendant bought us off by providing a form to send in to get 5,000 frequent flyer miles on AF or a partner. That won't help us much, since it has become so hard to use FF miles to get seats.
The meals were pretty bad. On the way out, dinner was a combination of a pasta entree and a rice salad. Talk about unbalance. On the return, the hot dinner wasn't hot.
The same flight attendants served both PV and economy, so service was pretty non-existant. I had to go from PV all the way to the back of the plane to get a bottle of water. There I encountered two flight attendants who were talking and clearly did not appreciate being interrupted.
As usual, sometimes the cabin was cold and sometimes it was hot. It was rarely comfortable.
We did have lavatories at the front of the PV section that were usually available. A few passengers sneaked up from economy because the dividing curtains were left open most of the time, but it wasn't a big issue.
When I had booked our tickets, the only seats available were two centers. However, I was told that there were two sets of center and aisle seats that would not be assigned until the day of departure, so I should go to the airport early and I might be able to change seats.
We arrived when recommended only to find out that AF didn't begin operations for 90 minutes. Then, I was told at check-in that the seats couldn't be changed at baggage check-in but they might be able to be changed at the gate. I arrived at the gate when told and discovered noone would be there for 30 minutes. When someone arrived, I asked about changing seats and I got this rude "Have you lost your mind" look.
Why did AF have to give me such a run around? I ended up spending several extra hours at the airport for nothing.
When I booked, I used AF. However, the confirmation came from Delta, I guess because I gave my Delta FF number for miles. However, whenever I called Delta with follow-up questions, the people would admit to being confused because AF has different procedures. So why was I ever referred to Delta?
Based on our experience in PV, and seeing what a zoo economy was, we will try to avoid AF altogether in the future.
