Air France unveils new Business Class seat

Air France Business Class seat
Air France continues its quest to offer the ultimate comfort in the sky with the unveiling of its new Business Class seat this week, following a 500 million Euro investment. 
In total, 2,102 seats will be installed between June 2014 and summer 2016 on 44 Boeing 777 aircraft, the core of Air France’s long-haul fleet. Every detail has been specially modelled to give the seat its unique design..

Business Class passengers can now relax in a real “cocoon”, with luxurious finishing touches such as leather upholstery and topstitching, providing the best possible comfort and offering the prospect of a perfect sleep.

The new Air France Business class seat was developed around the concept of the three f’s:
• Full flat - the seat converts to a fully flat bed for crossing time zones without fatigue
• Full access - direct access to the aisle, regardless of the seat’s location in the cabin
• Full privacy - a protected area is provided by the seat’s enveloping curves, providing a true bubble of privacy in the sky

Air France engaged customers, company employees, designers, and ergonomic experts in the seat’s design. A 16-inch (41 cm) high definition touch screen offers more than 1,000 hours of entertainment, with a unique and intuitive navigation experience similar to a tablet. Entertainment programmes are available in 12 languages (French, English, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, German, Italian, Dutch, Russian and Arabic).
