Air France’s new cabins take off to Johannesburg

Mar 25 2016 17:05

Johannesburg - Air France now offers its customers its new long-haul travel cabins in La Première, business, premium eco and economy class to Johannesburg.

The gradual installation of the new cabins on the Boeing 777 enables the company to operate two weekly flights equipped with the brand new cabins, in addition to the frequencies operated by Airbus A380, for a total of 7 weekly flights.

On board the Boeing 777 to Johannesburg, La Première customers enjoy a real designer suite, promising total privacy. Air France has dressed each suite with thick curtains. In an instant, the La Première seat turns into a fully-flat bed over two metres long. During the flight, each guest has their own personal 24-inch (61cm) HD touch screen, one of the largest ever offered on board.

In the business cabin, Air France has designed a "cocoon in the sky". 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, according to their desires.

In premium economy, more comfortable seat cushions and a multi-position footrest further enhance this travel cabin, while 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.
