Air France revamps its Business Class
Air France recently announced that it will be treating its business class to a €110 million overhaul, in order to make sure that premier class travelers can travel in comfort.
The upgrades include new seats, improved services and a new in-flight menu.
The airline's Airbus A380s, A330s and Boeing 777s will have the new business class cabins installed over the next three years, and hopes to have the first aircraft ready with the new and improved services by the end of the year. In the summer of 2011, the airline hopes to have more than 20 planes equipped with the new cabins.
The new seat will have a shell structure that will guarantee the privacy of the passenger. It will be a lie-flat seat that will be more than six feet long, making it one of the longest beds in the sky. There will also be new storage space and television screen.
“During the air transport crisis, Air France chose to pursue its investment strategy in its Business class offerings. This ambition currently allows us to offer our customers a more comfortable trip thanks to improved services and optimum peace of mind," said Christian Herzog, senior vice president of marketing for Air France-KLM.
