ON BOARD THE DREAMLINER: THE BEST OF AIR FRANCE
This new generation aircraft has a number of operational advantages, including:
- 20% less fuel consumption than previous generation aircraft, an asset to offset the effects of a rise in the price of fuel; - a significant reduction in CO2 emissions (around 20%) and noise emissions.
For Air France customers traveling to Montreal, the Boeing 787 provides several assets:
Air France’s latest travel cabins: a real cocoon in the sky in the Business cabin (30 seats) and comfort for all in the new Premium Economy cabin (21 seats) and Economy (225 seats);
on-board WiFi adapted to the needs of customers (from 20MB to 200MB for a price varying between €5 and €30);
more comfort and space with the new Premium Economy seats;
windows that are approximately 30% larger than on similar aircraft;
improved air pressure and enhanced in-flight humidity levels for greater travel comfort.
