Air France provides three levels of travel classes: business class, premium economy class, and economy class on each of its long-haul flights.

Air France integrates French culture into all of its aircraft while providing its clients with an unparalleled experience that mixes enjoyment, elegance, and leisure. Considering that, have a look at the cabin classes that Air France Airlines provides on its long-haul flights and the features you can expect as a passenger.

Air France provides three levels of travel classes: business class, premium economy class, and economy class on each of its long-haul flights. Apart from these, the airline has the fourth travel class, La Premiere, offered only on select Boeing 777-300 aircraft.

La Première d' Air France
The Air France experience, called "France in the Air", begins soon after you arrive at the airport, particularly if you are traveling in what many consider to be "the best first-class cabin" in the world.

Air France has La Premiere as the first-class travel service on select Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The airline begins with a personalized service by having a premium vehicle drive you from your home or hotel to the airport comfortably. 

On arrival, you are greeted at a particular terminal. You will find a concierge to handle your baggage and check you in. Meanwhile, you get enough time to relax in the La Première lounge. When it's time for boarding, you will be fast-tracked through security and chauffeured in a luxury vehicle to the airplane.

When you board the Air France flight, the La Premiere crew will greet you and assist you all through your journey. The unique La Premiere class with four suites is luxury personified. The opulent cabin has each detail in your private space carefully crafted for your pleasure. You can enjoy having delicious cuisines and relax in your seat, which can be transformed into a 6.5 feet bed. 

Air France has only the La Premiere class on a few routes since the A380 aircraft’s retirement in 2020, but there has been speculation about introducing the class into the airline's A350s.
