On December 12, 2018, Global Traveler magazine readers awarded Air France the best design prize for its La Première seat at the Global Traveler Tested Reader Survey Awards annual ceremony in Los Angeles.
This award joins the three Skytrax Awards 2018 awards and the 7 Business Traveller Cellars in the Sky Awards 2017 that Air France has received this year for the quality of its La Première service.
A seat combining comfort and design
Customers are sure to sleep soundly thanks to a comfortable seat that turns into a fully-flat bed measuring over two meters long and 77cm wide*. It has a memory foam mattress, a pillow and a large fluffy duvet. Guests enjoy a full night’s sleep in hotel-standard comfort.
In a La Première suite, the customer is free to orchestrate their trip in whichever way they see fit. Guests are free to move around the cabin or enjoy total privacy. They can make themselves at home in the sky, with a range of services at their disposal, including an individual cloakroom, storage space and a bedside lamp. If they’re traveling with someone else, the customer can invite their companion to join them at their large table, by taking a seat on an elegant and comfortable ottoman.
Throughout the year, Air France offers its La Première customers culinary delights worthy of the finest restaurants on board its long-haul flights.
In 2019, four Michelin-starred chefs will offer their gourmet creations on board the La Première cabin on departure from Paris -
Michel Roth: January to March
Joël Robuchon**: April to June
Régis Marcon: July to September
Emmanuel Renaut: October to December
