With Premium Economy, Air France customers benefit from a private cabin with 40% more space than the Economy cabin for a highly competitive fare. Air France is the first European airline to provide a seat that reclines inside a fixed shell in an intermediary class. The seat that is 48 cm wide with a 123° seat back recline, is equipped with a fixed shell which guarantees passengers' privacy. It also has wide leather armrests (10cm) enabling all passengers to rest their elbows without disturbing their neighbours, a 10.4 inch (26 cm) individual video screen offering 500 hours of programmes on demand that Air France offers on all its long-haul flights.
Amenities from the Business class cabin such as the travel kit, noise-reducing headphones, a feather pillow and a pure new wool blanket are also provided in the Premium Economy cabin.
The meal service is the same as in Economy, with aperitifs, Champagne, meals designed by Michel Nugues – a member of “Toques du ciel” – with a choice of two hot dishes, liqueurs, wines chosen by Olivier Poussier – world’s best sommelier in 2000 – and on the longest flights, mini-sandwiches and Häagen Dazs ice-cream (except on the Caribbean and Indian Ocean network).
