Air France has revealed the interior cabin of its just received
Airbus A380 Superjumbo.
There is no surprises with the details of its cabin
configuration, matching very closely with what I have reported here on The
Business Travel Guru in the past, however the release by Air France of these
cabin pictures give the full picture of what to expect, if you get the chance
to fly this aircraft
Air France A380 La
Premiere First Class Cabin
The Air France Airbus A380 features 9 First Class La
Premiere seats on the lower deck, no suites you say? Yes this is correct, Air France
bucked the trend deciding not to follow Singapore Airlines, Emirates or Qantas in
implementing suites in First Class La Premiere, maybe this is a sign of the
economic times in Europe, but then again this aircraft would have been the planning
stages for years.
The 9 first class seats are set out in a 1-2-1 configuration,
this cabin features what looks to be a self service bar, along with a changing cabin/room
with beauty products from Clarins.
Air France A380 Affaires Business Class Cabin
The Air France A380 Affaires or Business Class cabin is
located in the forward upper deck of the aircraft, with 80 Seats set out in a
2-2-2 seating configuration; each seat is two meters long. The In-flight
entertainment Unit IFE screen is 15 Inch (38 cm) wide.
Noise Cancelling Headphones? Air France is using nothing but
the best, Sennheiser Noise Cancelling Headphones
Air France Airbus A380 Voyageur Economy Class Cabin

From the initial information & pictures which Air France
has released about its Airbus A380, the product looks quite good, but is it in
the league of its A380 Predecessors? I think the jury is out, will need to wait
for a flight review! What are your thoughts?
