France’s flag carrier has added a further six destinations now offering its long-haul premium economy product, including Guangzhou and Rio de Janeiro.
Since the start of this month the carrier now operates flights featuring the Premium Voyageur cabin to a total of 39 destinations, with the addition of routes to Bamako, Bogota, Guangzhou, Lome, Rio de Janeiro and Seattle. Abu Dhabi, Bangalore, Caracas and Cotonou will also “soon” feature the new seating.
Air France has now fitted all of its B777-200 and B777-300 aircraft with the premium economy seats, with its A330s and A340s due to be retrofitted by the end of November, and the carrier’s A380 aircraft set to feature the new cabin from the summer of 2011.
