With its all-new Airbus A350 business class seat, Air France hopes to please every passenger.
Want to sit right up against the window and enjoy the view through as many as three large windows? Done. Prefer to be closer to the aisle? Also done.
If you're set for the middle seat, how about being right next to your partner in forward-facing seats...
... and for solo travellers, about as far away from the other passenger as they can get, with seats which angle away from one another?
The unique layout of Air France's newest business class adopts the same 'mix and match' approach as seen in United Airlines' latest Polaris business class.
And that's no accident: for its Airbus A350s, Air France has chosen the same 'Optima' seat which forms the foundation of United's Polaris platform.
Air France's A350s will have 34 business class seats, with first flights tentatively scheduled for September.
Note that the images shown here are of the Optima seat in its dressed-up catalogue form – the Air France version will undoubtedly receive a chic redesign.
