The airline company Air France unveiled the business class which will equip its Boeing 777-300ERwhich will also benefit from new seats Premium and Economy.
“Pursuing its strategy of moving upmarket”, the French national company presented on May 10, 2022 its new and unique wheelchair Long-haul business, “elegantly reaffirming the art of French travel”. Air France takes over the concept of 3 “F” : Full Flat, it comes in a real flat bed of almost 2 meters; Full Access, each has direct access to the driveway and Full Privacy, for optimal privacy. A news door sliding door allows you to “completely privatize your own space, thus preserving it from the rest of the cabin”. For more proximity when traveling for two, the seats located in the middle of the cabin now have a central wall that can simply be lowered; “a vast space of conviviality is then available to enjoy the trip together”. The chair also has a large High Definition anti-reflective screen 17.3 inch 4Kfeaturing noise canceling headphones, new connection Bluetooth allowing you to use your own headphones, and multiple sockets.
By settling on board this new Business class, everyone is “welcomed by a backlit winged seahorse, embodying the founding myth of the company and the richness of its history”. Inside the seat, the padding brings “a feeling of softness and intimacy”: wool, brushed aluminium, French full-grain leather, Air France has favored noble, soft and natural materials for its manufacture. Finally, each armchair is embroidered with the red accent, the company’s trademark symbol.
The alliance company SkyTeam will gradually roll out this new travel class from September until the end of 2023 in its last 12 Boeing 777-300ER (the COIs are now reorganized) which will then be configured to accommodate 48 passengers in Business class, 48 in Premium and 273 in Economy (369 seats); the other two cabins will also be entitled to new seats. In the cabin Premium EconomyAir France is introducing its latest “recliner” type model (reclining seat), already offered on its Airbus A350-900, “while further improving its comfort. On board, everyone has 96 cm of space to stretch their legs. The seat foams have been reworked and the navy blue herringbone fabric provides more softness. The back reclines up to 124 degrees and has been widened to provide more privacy. A noise-reducing helmet fits in harmoniously for simple use at any time during the trip; USB A and C sockets complete the set”.
In the cabin Economy, the seats are also “at the highest standards of comfort on the market. Each has a wide 43cm seat, 119 degree recline and 79cm of legroom. The seat back is ergonomic and offers reinforced lateral support. A USB A port is also available. These two cabins offer a large 13.3-inch 4k High Definition screen equipped with Bluetooth, “ideal for discovering more than 1,000 hours of on-demand entertainment”.
All the cabins “elegantly display the brand’s identity colors: navy blue, white bringing light and contrast, touches of red”. Air France specifies that the first refitted 777-300ER (F-GZNK baptized Fontainebleau) will initially be deployed in the fall between its base in Paris CDG and the airport of New York-JFK, alongside its brothers equipped with La Première. It is now configured in 42+24+315 (381 seats, 12 more); the change therefore benefits the premium classes.
“After the renovation of our 15 A330s and our 12 leisure B777s, our last 12 B777-300s will be completely renovated.
We will thus have a long-haul fleet equipped with 100% horizontal bed seats in Business in the fall of 2023.” #AirFranceTourEiffel pic.twitter.com/4C31MX4Biv
