On board the Boeing 787 Dreamliner from Guangzhou to Paris, passengers will enjoy the comfort of the new Business, Premium Economy, and Economy cabins.
Air France offers up to 30 cocoons in the business cabin, with a 1-2-1 layout. The seat adapts to the shape of each individual, from a sitting position to a real 2-meter long bed. At the heart of the curved structure, each passenger creates their own space, according to their desires. The seat’s soft foam is designed to offer impeccable sleeping comfort. With a soft duvet and XXL-sized feather down pillow, everything has been designed to ensure peaceful sleep while in the air. Each passenger has a wide 16-inch (41 cm) HD touch screen.
In Premium Economy, a total of 21 seats feature a rigid shell that protects each passenger’s space and privacy. With adjustable seats and a multi-position footrest, Air France has further improved the in-flight comfort in its travel cabin. In Economy class, there is a new fully-revised seat, with more legroom, a new seat cushion, more comfortable headrests, woollen blankets, and eye masks.
