Air France has unveiled its new cabins available on board its Boeing 777-300, mainly serving destinations in the Caribbean and Indian Ocean.
The aircraft’s 472 seats (14 in Business, 28 in Premium Economy and 430 in Economy) have been completely redesigned, and are already flying on the first aircraft. Throughout the year, Air France will gradually install these new cabins on all its 10 Boeing 777-300s mainly dedicated to this network, as part of an overall investment of 120 million euros.
Seats in the Air France Business cabin recline to become a bed nearly two metres long. It also offers a new predefined “relax” position. With a seating arrangement of four seats per row (1/2/1), all customers have direct aisle access. The new configuration of this cabin can be adapted to the customer’s wishes, whether they are travelling alone or with a companion.
A removable partition and a “do not disturb” sign controlled via the seat give passengers privacy.
Each seat has a soft seat foam, a silky duvet and a comfortable pillow. In addition, there is a storage compartment with a mirror and noise-reducing headphones, an electric socket, two USB ports, an 18.5-inch HD screen, an individually adjustable reading light and mood lighting. A comfort kit in suede and leather, available in elegant colours, is also offered.
The Premium Economy cabin seat has a width of 48.8 cm, a seat recline of 130° inside a fixed shell, lumbar support adapted to different morphologies and additional legroom. The softer seat foams and wider leather armrests have also been redesigned. The footrests, leg and headrests are adjustable. Additional storage, an individual adjustable reading light, a digital tablet stand, power outlet and two USB ports are also offered.
Each customer has noise-cancelling headphones to access entertainment from their individual 13.3-inch HD screen. The comfort kit is renewed every six months, whilst a red feather pillow and a navy blue blanket accompany them throughout their trip.
The Economy cabin offers a seat width of 43 cm, a 118° recline, soft adjustable headrests and ergonomic seat foam. A latest-generation 11.6-inch high-definition individual screen, audio headphones and a USB port accompany a larger seat table. A red blanket and a collection of five cushions inspired by the Air France accent are also available.
On board the redesigned Boeing 777-300s, customers can enjoy on-board Wi-Fi with Air France CONNECT.
By the end of 2020, the entire Air France fleet will be equipped with Wi-Fi. Three different passes are available:
A free “Message” pass for all, to send and receive messages during the entire flight;
A “Surf” pass, costing between €8 and €18 (6,000 Miles) to surf the internet, read and send emails;
A “Stream” pass, costing €30 (10,000 Miles) for high-speed internet access, streaming and downloading, including the “Message” and “Surf” passes.
