June 1, 2015 Aviation No Comments Email Email

AirfanceAir France is continuing its move upmarket on its long-haul network and is offering its La Première and Business customers an à la carte meal option.

With the à la carte dishes available on all Air France long-haul flights*, they can enjoy more freedom and pleasure during their flight, on the theme of Asian delights and a seafood basket.

Air France offers new à la carte dishes in Business and La Première

Six dishes in the La Première cabin and six others in the Business cabin are available, in various different culinary categories:

• Thai cuisine;
• Traditional Chinese;
• Flavours of India;
• Japanese delights;
• A taste of Korea;
• There is also a “seafood basket” to complement these tasty and varied à la carte options.

Customers can book the dish of their choice between 90 days and 24 hours before flight departure. They can book an à la carte meal when purchasing their ticket or in the “Manage your bookings” section online at, at Air France ticket offices and call centres, or when they check in online or on their smartphone.


In La Première and Business, every detail counts. To make mealtimes truly unique, the Company asked Jean-Marie Massaud, a famous French designer, to create the new tableware.
With champagne flutes, fine porcelain Bernardaud plates and Christofle cutlery, Jean-Marie Massaud has designed a complete service of more than 40 original pieces for the La Première cabin. The legendary winged seahorse, a symbol of Air France’s La Première brand, adds a refined touch as a watermark on this made-to-measure collection.

In the Business cabin, each piece has been carefully designed to evoke lightness and flight, concepts close to the designer’s heart. The materials chosen are delicate, Guy Degrenne porcelain, thin glass and steel Christofle cutlery make up a large part of this comprehensive collection.


By using real taste stylists to draw up the menus in its La Première and Business cabins, Air France is confirming its role as ambassador of French fine cuisine and lifestyle. The Company invites renowned French chefs to create certain dishes on the La Première and Business menus on board long-haul flights departing from Paris.  Joël Robuchon, Guy Martin, Michel Roth, Thibaut Ruggeri, Régis Marcon and Anne-Sophie Pic have already endorsed this role of ambassador of French cuisine on board Air France flights, by signing one of their gourmet creations among the hot dishes on offer.
In April and May 2015, Savoie-born Guy Martin signs new dishes in the La Première cabin.
