If you won't sit next to a woman under any circumstances, you have to buy 2 seats or sit in a single seat configuration. In the case of AF, they have a whole policy about it! https://www.airfrance.us/US/en/common/guidevoyageur/assistance/particuliere_pfc.htm

Assuming PAX didn't attempt to do this, it's his fault.
Very Interesting.
Back in the day there were rabbanim who did exactly that. One in particular that i know of flew often enough that the airport staff already knew not to put him next to a woman.
Would never happen today...

Very interesting

* The 2nd seat is offered tax-free and with a 25% reduction on the passenger's initial seat fare

Need to keep in mind when they come up with insane fares that are mostly YQ. If only they would allow one to book a 3rd or even 4th seat under those terms, one could get real lie flat (if a little uneven) in economy.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

This seems like a great way to book a seat for an infant.

Your still taking the chance of paying another ticket (-25%)

-YQ etc.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Between paying for the infants ticket (10%?) and the seat, there's not much savings left.

Question is if they would honor it if you book by phone...

Curious if they'll actually deny this if a person is thin enough.

What a person looks like does not matter, it's what they identify as..

With a chance of a refund on the cost of the seat if there is an empty seat in Economy.

Seems to me that the free seat applies in all cabins “Air France will reimburse the entirety of your 2nd seat fare if there are unoccupied seats in your cabin”
The 25% discount on 2 seat in economy only...
Would be a great deal on flights with low loads

Didn't realize it earlier, but the point is that no one would pay for an extra J or F and be will to pay for the seat. 25% off an Economy Ticket may be worth it
