Air France has revealed new seats, products and services for its economy and premium economy cabins on board its 15 Airbus A330s which will be refitted from January next year.

In the economy cabin, passengers will enjoy more space between the armrests (44cm); reinforced ergonomic foam in the seat and a 118° recline; 79cm leg-room; as well as a larger tray table and a wider, 30cm touch screen. New bright red blankets and eye masks are also available.

The economy seat allows passengers to use their electronic devices throughout the flight with a USB plug and an individual electric socket. Customers can now stay connected with WiFi throughout their flight, which is being progressively installed on all Air France aircraft. Each seat is equipped with an audio headset.

The premium economy cabin offers a 130° seat recline in a fixed shell; 48cm seat width; 102cm seat pitch; lumbar support adapted to different body shapes; additional storage space; a wider footrest; and a 34cm HD screen. Softer seat cushions and wider leather armrests have also been redesigned.

Customers will be welcomed with a hot towel to freshen up, and a glass of champagne.

The meal is served in the new tableware and gourmet snacks are available on a self-service basis on flights longer than eight and a half hours.

On flights of between eight and a half and ten and a half hours, customers are offered a ‘Bon Appétit’ breakfast bag containing snacks to take with them or to eat on board. .
