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).
