Air France's long-haul business class seat was formerly called Affaires.
At its most 'basic', the seat has a pitch of 61 inches (155cm) that extends into a bed length of 74 inches (188cm). Seat angle is 171 degrees, i.e. nine degrees from fully-flat, while entertainment can be individually controlled and passengers have the ability to stop and start films. There is a power source available. The In-flight Entertainment (IFE) differs according to how recently the aircraft has entered service, since Air France has upgraded its IFE to include Audio and Video on Demand (AVOD)
On the newer B777 aircraft, the new Business seat is slightly more spacious than the previous version. This new seat can be converted into a bed that is shaped to the contours of your body. The bed extends to two metres (6.5 feet) in length and stretches width-ways from 20-24 inches (50.8 to 61cm), thanks to the armrest that automatically lowers when you adjust the seat to bed position. The seat is 'practically' horizontal (ie: lie flat, rather than fully flat).
This convertible bed-seat also has a 10.4-inch (26cm) interactive video screen, a PC outlet, an individual telephone and a fibre-optic reading light.
The seat also includes a new storage space and a removable armrest to facilitate access for passengers with reduced mobility.
Menus are changed every 10 days on flights from Paris and start with an array of amuse-bouches, followed by appetizers and a seasonal salad. There is a choice of four main courses followed by dessert, a fruit selection and sorbet.

First when making the reservation, had it not been for seatplans.com and a description of the aircraft, I would've been lost in making reservations through Air France. I usually don't write comments like this, but given my positive experience I decided to do so hoping to help other travelers. We were... more
As mentioned in an earlier thread, i'm on my way to Hong Kong. On the way out i'm flying AF while using my beloved KLM for the return. Check-in The check-in counters for flights to France are at a special section of GVA airport and therefore normally really quiet, there was no-one at the SKYPRIORITY desk and I was assisted immediately. After some searching the... more
