Air France to launch new La Première Suite from September 2014

Air France has today announced its latest La Première Suite, to be equipped on its Boeing 777-300 planes from September 2014.



Aviation enthusiasts are welcome to visit an on-the-ground version at  “Air France, France is in the air” exhibition at the following locations.

Shanghai from 8 to 11 May 2014
New York from 26 to 28 June 2014
Paris from 20 to 21 September 2014

Judging by the photos in the press release, it certainly looks timeless with its crafty mix of fake leather, real leather and suede. Couple that with some fine French dining (snails anyone?), a Givenchy wash bag, and a 24” TV  — one of the largest you'll ever see on an aeroplane.

Notice this bold statement in their annoucement though:

When the passenger is ready to go to sleep, the crew members install a mattress on the seat, for impeccable comfort. They are then given a fluffy pillow and a Sofitel My Bed® duvet. The pillow is placed in a soft cotton pillowcase for ultimate softness, guaranteeing a perfect night’s sleep.

I wonder what's at stake if it's not perfect? First night free?
