Air France unveils seating plans for new four-class Airbus A380

Air France has unveiled seating plans for its new four-class Airbus A380 superjumbo jets, which will operate on routes between Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris to Washington, D.C.'s Dulles International Airport, reports Business Traveller.

The new jets will begin serving the Paris-Washington route on June 6, and unlike previous Air France superjumbos, they will be divided into four classes. The La Premiere first class cabin, which will feature nine seats, will be located in the nose of the plane on the A380's main deck.

Seating on the top deck of the jet will be divided into three classes. The front two-thirds of the plane will be occupied by the Affaires business class cabin, which holds 80 seats. The rest of the upper deck is covered by the 38-seat Premium Voyageur economy plus section and a 46-seat economy cabin that will likely be set aside for members of the airline's frequent flier program.

Another four-class A380 with the same layout will fly the new route from Paris to Montreal, Canada, with service expected to begin on April 22.
