Air France has revealed the interior cabin of its just received Airbus A380 Super-jumbo. 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.

I think the jury is out, will need to wait for a flight review! What are your thoughts?
