Customers in the Business cabin benefit from a real cocoon in the sky. The seat adapts to the shape of each individual, from seating position to a real 2-metre long bed. At the heart of the curved structure, each passenger creates their own space, enveloping and protective, according to their desires. The seat’s soft foam is designed to offer impeccable quality of sleep. With a soft duvet and XXL-sized feather down pillow, everything has been designed to ensure peaceful sleep among the clouds. Each passenger has a wide 16-inch (41 cm) HD touch screen.

In Premium Economy, customers enjoy more comfortable seats and a multi-position footrest, further improving the comfort of the cabin. In Economy, the new seat has been completely redesigned, with more legroom, new seat foam, softer headrests, a larger tray table, etc. There are also new features such as electric sockets and headphone holders. Concerning inflight entertainment, the HD touchscreens are significantly larger: 12 inches in Premium Economy and 9 inches in Economy. With movies, games and music, there are more than 1,000 hours of programmes available on demand.
