Office or restaurant, decide how to use your cabin on AirFrance


To ensure your comfort and well-being throughout your flight, Air France has designed a new personalised Business Cabin, now available on some intercontinental flights.

The new cabin serves as office, restaurant, entertainment lounge and bedroom but you will decide how to use the cabin to meet your needs.

You will love the contemporary design and subdued elegance of the Business seat: a graceful shape, padded upholstery, footrests, leather armrests, topstitching on the headrest and metallic finishing touches. Every detail is designed to ensure your well-being, comfort and privacy throughout your flight.

The seat becomes a helpful travel companion, adapting to meet all your needs.

If you need to work or take some rest or sleep, adjust the seat to the position that is right for you.

According to the airline, ‘the new Business seat represents our vision of the travel experience, presenting benefits including; a fully flat bed; direct access to the aisle for every passenger; a multipurpose area (desk, restaurant table, bed) offering even greater privacy.

Air France works to make sure you get a peaceful night’s sleep in a seat that transforms into a full bed. Nearly 2m/6.5 ft in length, it is made of comfortable materials and an armrest that lowers completely. With this additional space, you are free to find the sleeping position that is right for you.

Take advantage of accessories designed to help you avoid jet lag: an XXL feather down pillow and a soft duvet in glacier blue and warm grey.

In the Business cabin, each of your electronic devices—smartphone, tablet and laptop—has a secure place in the storage areas. You can also charge them using a personal power outlet and USB port.

Your personal storage compartment features an elegant red interior and contains noise-reducing headphones as well as a mirror. Store your daily-use items here to keep them close at hand.

You can also adjust the lighting to meet your needs: reading, ceiling and ambience lighting. You are free to orchestrate the flight you want!

Turn on your 16-inch HD touchscreen and transform your space into an entertainment lounge: movie classics and blockbusters, foreign films in the original language, concerts, documentaries, TV and music, games and more are at your fingertips. Updated every month, our varied programming gives you plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy yourself. Your getaway starts as soon as you get on board!
