AIR FRANCE'S BEST CABINS
On board the Boeing 777 to Montreal, passengers enjoy service excellence in the sky in the Business cabin 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. The soft duvet and XXL-sized feather down pillow have also been designed with the passenger’s optimum sleeping comfort in mind. Each passenger also has a 16-inch (41 cm) wide HD touch screen.
In Premium Economy, customers enjoy new, softer seat cushions and a footrest with multiple positions, further improving the comfort in this cabin. In Economy, the new seat has been entirely redesigned, with additional legroom, new seat cushions, softer headrests and a wider tray table etc. There are also new features such as electric sockets and headphone holders. As far as inflight entertainment is concerned, the HD touch screens are considerably larger: 12 inches in Premium Economy and 9 inches in Economy. With movies, games and music, there are more than 1,000 hours of programmes available on demand.
