Air France - New Boeing 777s, new cabins


The new Air France Boeing 777, which has been serving the new non-stop Paris-Ho Chi Minh City route since last month, offers many new features including new bars and a new in-flight entertainment system.


In the cabin, a new colour scheme creates a calm, cosy and bright atmosphere, enhancing the overall luminosity and the comfort of passengers. Out of the eleven Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on order, Air France will have received four by summer 2011.


New bars

Air France has introduced new bars in all cabins with refrigerated display cabinets where passengers can help themselves to drinks and ice creams (Haagen Dazs) depending on the flight duration.


An interactive cabin

In all cabins, a new in-flight entertainment system, specially developed for Air France by Panasonic, has a USB socket enabling passengers to download free programmes.


With this system, passengers can read audio,photo and video files and consult and modify work documents such as Word, Excel or Powerpoint files.

Thanks to an intuitive navigation system, all passengers can enjoy the Video On Demand (VOD) system with some 600 hours of programmes in 15 different languages.


As for music, passengers can choose from some 3,000 pieces of music and can also draw up their personal play list.


In all cabins, wider touch-sensitive screens are now in 16:9 format and have a faster response time.


Among the other Air France exclusive new features, passengers will soon have access to an interactive meal service menu and be able to download recipes as well as take part in a discussion forum, where they can exchange with other passengers on the flight.  


Customers can also join the Flying Blue frequent flyer programme by entering their contact details via a dedicated programme.
