Short-haul business class on Air France is the traditional business class product with full flexibility and 2-2 seating. A tray table replaces the middle seat in the first few rows of each aircraft. Service includes a snack or meal depending on time of day, lounge access and two pieces of checked baggage.
It is distinct from Premium Eco, which is a traditional economy product and seating but with added ticket flexibility.
Both fare types allow you to modify or have your tickets reimbursed without paying a fee. There is also automatic check-in and you will receive your boarding pass via e-mail 30 hours prior to departure.
Air France is fitting a new seat on its domestic fleet (A319s, A320s and A321s). The Recaro-designed seat pictured here is lighter than the current short-haul one. The seat adds 2-3 inches more pitch, as well as having a 15 degree recline. Air France says that at 40% lighter, once fitted across its domestic fleet the seat will cut its CO2 emissions by around 52,000 tonnes per year.
