Beginning February 2019, the Air France lounge will also introduce a range of new services dedicated to its customers’ well-being.
Located in Terminal 1 at New York’s JFK Airport, the Air France lounge is accessible to La Première, Business and Flying Blue Platinum and Gold members.
A Redesigned Dining Experience
After inaugurating its lounge for the first time in 2014, Air France continues to offer its customers the best possible service, revamping its dining area dominated by white and wood tones.
In this area located on the mezzanine, new furniture and imitation leather couches, inspired by a Parisian brasserie, have been custom designed to offer a convivial atmosphere. Blue and grey tones along with atmospheric lighting have been added to create a more intimate atmosphere. The mezzanine floor has also been redesigned, incorporating light and anthracite grey shades. In total, the area is equipped with close to 34 tables for 2, a high table with 6 seats for dining opposite the runways and a round table seating 6.
Night Service – Dine in the Lounge and Sleep on Board
This new dining area has been designed to offer customers the Night Service. This service anticipates Business customers’ need to enjoy a good night’s sleep on overnight flights between New York and Paris. At no extra charge, passengers can enjoy the same gourmet French meal in the airport lounge as the one served on board, with their meal served at their table. Each customer can thus enjoy a full meal comprising a starter, hot dish, cheese, dessert and a wine and Champagnes list.
During the flight, customers can enjoy a good night’s sleep in the comfort of the Business class cabin. A quiet, private cabin, with a guarantee of a peaceful night’s sleep in a seat that transforms into a lie-flat bed. Customers with a very healthy appetite can choose to eat again during the flight.
When they awake, when the French coast looms on the horizon, breakfast is served before landing at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
Since the launch of the Night Service in 2016, close to 50% of customers travelling in Business class on overnight flights dine in the lounge.
