8 March 2016, Air France customers have been able to travel to Johannesburg from Paris-Charles de Gaulle on board a Boeing 777-300ER offering optimum travel comfort.
The gradual installation of the new cabins on the Boeing 777 enables the airline to operate two weekly flights equipped with the brand new La Première, Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins, in addition to the flights operated by Airbus A380, for a total of 7 weekly flights.
On board the Boeing 777 to Johannesburg, La Première customers enjoy a real designer suite, promising total privacy, fully-flat bed and 24-inch (61cm) HD touch screen.
In the Business cabin, Air France has designed a real cocoon in the sky. The seat adapts to the shape of each individual, from seating position to a real 2-metre long bed. The seat's soft foam is designed to offer impeccable quality of sleep.
In Premium Economy, more comfortable seat cushions and a multi-position footrest further enhance this travel cabin. In Economy class, there is a new fully-revised seat, with more legroom, a new seat cushion, more comfortable headrests and a wider tray table.
