As from the 31st of March 2013, Air France will be introducing a Boeing 777-200 on the Port Harcourt / Abuja to Paris route. The capacity increases by 18 per cent, with more than 270 additional seats offered per week.
Air France’s B777-200 is equipped with 247 seats, divided into four cabin classes namely La Première (First) 4 seats, Business 49 seats, Premium Economy 24 seats and Economy 170 seats. The wide cabin offers passengers additional space and comfort in all cabins and allows for the introduction of La Première service on the Port Harcourt /Abuja route.
On board the aircraft, La Première cabin (the latest entrant) offers service combining both comfort and prestige.
The seat, which converts into a 2-metre seat-bed, comes with a duvet and is positioned at an angle so as to give passengers direct access to the aisle. Air France cultivates the “French fine art of entertaining”, both in terms of the quality of the cuisine as well as in its choice of elegant tableware and linens. Air France has redesigned its service and menu with the great icons of gastronomy in mind. To meet that level of perfection, Air France called on the “Servair culinary studio”, overseen by Joël Robuchon, the world’s “most starred chef” in 2009, alongside Guy Martin, the Michelin-starred chef of the Grand Véfour in Paris, and Jacques Le Divellec, Servair’s culinary consultant.
La Première service redefines the codes of luxury to satisfy customers for whom attention to detail is a priority. From the moment they arrive at the airport to the personalized welcome by the crew on board the aircraft, having their baggage check-in formalities taken care of, customers benefit from personalized assistance throughout their trip, making their experience a pure moment of well-being and comfort.
