Travelling in La Première


Attentiveness, discretion and foresight are the three essential qualities which the Air France ground staff and 1,000 cabin crew dedicated to La Première passengers possess. Specially chosen to meet the requirements of La Première passengers, each cabin crew member attends to a maximum of two customers throughout the flight.



The seat, a key comfort factor for La Première passengers

The seat folds out into a real 2-metre bed and its "sleep" position enables passengers to enjoy a good night's rest in a real bed. It has an additional mattress with a feather duvet, a pure Merino wool blanket, a "boudoir" cushion, an anti-allergy feather pillow with an embroidered cotton pillowcase edged with openwork.


In addition to a wide tray table, the seat has a number of discreetly integrated functions:

  • a back massage
  • an interactive video screen
  • a noise-reducing hi-fi headset
  • on-demand video
  • a PC power outlet
  • an individual telephone
  • soft lighting
  • a private fibre optic reading light


Opposite the seat, a bench (ottoman) with incorporated storage space is available, allowing the passenger to invite a co-worker or fellow traveller into his private space.

For greater travelling comfort, La Première passengers are given pyjamas with the embroidered sea horse, a shoe bag, slippers and an amenity kit that includes five Clarins skincare products for men or for women, a relaxing eye mask and toiletries.


A new changing cabin on Air France's Airbus A380

At the front of the La Première cabin, passengers can use the new private changing cabin to change into their lounging suit before sleeping, or to get ready before arrival. This new private area has a dressing table opposite two built-in shelves containing top-of-the-range Clarins beauty products, ensuring optimum well-being both during and after the flight.


Opposite this area there is a wardrobe offering La Première passengers a complementary exclusive service: cabin crew give each passenger a clothes bag in which to put all their personal belongings.
