Air France’s best travel cabins
On board the Boeing 777 to Taipei, passengers will enjoy the comfort of the new Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins.
In the Business cabin, Air France offers service excellence in the sky. The seat adapts to the shape of each individual, from seating position to a real 2-metre long bed. At the heart of the curved structure, each passenger creates their own space, according to their desires. The seat’s soft foam is designed to offer an impeccable quality of sleep. With a soft duvet and XXL-sized feather down pillow, everything has been designed to ensure peaceful sleep among the clouds. Each passenger has a wide 16-inch (41 cm) HD touchscreen.
In Premium Economy, more comfortable seat cushions and a multi-position footrest further enhance this travel cabin. In Economy class, there is a new fully-revised seat, with more legroom, a new seat cushion, more comfortable headrests and a wider tray table.
Taipei, the connected city
The cosmopolitan Taiwanese capital and Mecca of hi-tech with its plentiful skyscrapers, including the famous Taipei 101 tower, is permanently redesigning its modern-day image. However, Taiwan is much more than its ultra-developed capital. The island also offers an abundance of rural surprises – pastoral landscapes, wild coastline, fishing villages, Taoist temples and fine sandy beaches. Offering a marked contrast between natural countryside and futuristic cities, Taiwan attracts an increasing number of tourists from around the world, seeking to experience this perfect harmony.
