Step aside, Emirates and Qatar Airways! Air France is set to redefine luxury in the skies with the longest seats in commercial aviation for its first-class passengers. And that’s not all – they can indulge in lavish suites at CDG, complete with a living area, bedroom, outdoor patio, and a dedicated butler.


Air France is rolling out the red carpet for first-class travelers, elevating their experience from the ground up to 40,000 feet in the sky. La Première is debuting new upgrades at Paris Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG) in July, just in time for the 2024 Summer Olympics and Paralympic Games. If a dedicated check-in lobby, security screening, and private lounge space weren’t enough, Air France is also launching a new La Première cabin, featuring the longest first-class seats in the world in winter 2024.

La Première passengers will commence their journey in the lap of luxury within a 10,700-square-foot lounge. This exquisite space offers a menu and wines curated by Michelin-star chef Alain Ducasse. After satisfying their appetite, passengers can rejuvenate in luxe shower spaces and enjoy complimentary 30-minute spa treatments from the French skincare brand Sisley.

The suites are spacious, chic and luxurious.

The La Première suites at CDG are a haven of luxury, each boasting a living area, a bedroom, an outdoor patio, and a dedicated butler. According to Air France, every suite is a masterpiece, with its own unique character, color scheme, and interior design. Aromatic fresh flowers, luxurious linens, and captivating artwork by French artists are a common sight. For those traveling in large groups or families, the option to combine two suites is available, adding to the allure of the La Première experience.

All good things come at a price, and the La Première suite, surpassing even the best, is no exception. They aren’t included in first-class rates and start at $865. Beyond the opulent suites at CDG, come winter 2024, Air France’s new La Première first-class cabin will redefine luxury. The spacious seats will allow passengers to enjoy views from five windows. This configuration leaves each cabin with only three first-class seats, offering ample room for a fully flat bed, a sofa, and an additional seat, per Afar. Air France is indeed acing the game of providing unmatched luxurious service at the airport and en route like no other.
