Air France & KLM

Supreme comfort, privacy and more individual space in Business Class
24th Oct, 2014

Both Air France and KLM recently unveiled their new Business Class for a completely renewed travel experience.

KLM constructed its World Business Class down to every detail. Designed by a famous Dutch designer, it will give passengers a real at home – feeling on board.
Greater sleeping comfort: recline fully flat (180°) into a bed position
More privacy: own privacy shell and fixed privacy screen between seats
Optimum comfort: more leg room, personal entertainment system integrated in seats, in-seat power, additional storage space

KLM is offering its new World Business Class on 22 Boeing 747. In September 2015, all of its Boeing 777-200 and 300 will offer this cabin.

Air France
To ensure customers comfort and well-being all throughout the flight, Air France designed a new Business cabin which serves as an office, restaurant (menu prepared by Michelin-starred chefs), entertainment lounge (a 16-inch HD touch screen with more than 1,000 hours of entertainment) and bedroom. Passengers decide how to use the cabin to meet their needs.

The design of the new seat has been developed around the 3 "F" concept - positioning AF as the 1st European carrier to have the combination of:
Full Flat - the seat converts to a fully flat- bed (180°) for a perfect sleep
Full Access - direct access to the aisle, regardless of the seat's location in the cabin
Full Privacy – a private area thanks to the seat’s enveloping curves, providing a truly personal cocoon in the sky

The new Business Class will progressively be installed all the way until summer 2016 on 44 Boeing 777, the core of Air France’s long-haul fleet.
