Air France’s New Cabins Take Off To Los Angeles And Washington

July 16, 2015 Aviation No Comments Email Email

AirfanceSince 6 July 2015, two additional North-American destinations have been served with the new Air France cabins. Customers travelling to Los Angeles and Washington can now enjoy the new Business cabin, a real cocoon in the sky, and the fully-revised seats in Premium Economy and Economy. The gradual entry into service of the BEST-equipped Boeing 777s will allow us to serve these destinations with the new cabins up to seven times-weekly throughout the 2015 summer season. Ultimately, 44 Boeing 777s, the heart of the Air France long-haul fleet, will be equipped.

ONE YEAR ON, AIR FRANCE’S EFFORTS HAVE PAID OFF

In June 2014, Air France unveiled the first Boeing 777 equipped with its new long-haul cabin classes. One year later, the Company is reaping the rewards of its efforts with a significant increase in its customer satisfaction ratings. This enthusiasm has given rise to a 28 point increase in the Net Promoter Scope (NPS), a popular rating index which has received a high response from customers asked whether they are willing to recommend the Company to their families, friends and colleagues.

AIR FRANCE, VOTED “WORLD’S MOST IMPROVED AIRLINE” IN 2015

In June 2015, Air France received two awards from Skytrax – world’s most improved airline and, for the second consecutive year, best first class airline lounge dining. These awards were presented to the Company at the World Airline Awards, the occasion for Skytrax to announce its highly-professional airline rating among one of the most respected in the air transport industry. Both awards received by Air France are the result of a satisfaction survey carried out online with 19 million customers.
