Air France's best travel cabins
On board the Boeing 777 to Bamako and Papeete, passengers enjoy service excellence in the sky in Business and completely redesigned seats in the Premium Economy and Economy cabins.
In the Business cabin, the seat adapts to the shape of each individual, from seating position to a real 2-metre long bed. At the heart of the curved structure, each passenger creates their own space, enveloping and protective, according to their desires. The seat's soft foam is designed to offer impeccable quality of sleep. With a soft duvet and XXL-sized feather down pillow, everything has been designed to ensure peaceful sleep among the clouds. Each passenger has a wide 16-inch (41 cm) HD touch screen.
In Premium Economy, more comfortable seat cushions and a multi-position footrest further enhance this travel cabin. In Economy class, there is a new fully-revised seat, with more legroom, a new seat cushion, more comfortable headrests and a wider tray table. There are also new features such as electric sockets and headphone holders. As far as inflight entertainment is concerned, the HD touch screens are much larger: 12 inches in Premium Economy and 9 inches in Economy. With movies, games, music and much more, over 1,000 hours of programmes are available on demand.
