Whether you want to fly in style on Delta Air Line’s latest eco-friendly airbus or experience the “French-style art of travel” on Air France starting this fall, these 4 new business and first-class seats look so luxurious that they will be worth the splurge.
Air France’s New Business Class Seats For Long-Haul Flights
Air France recently revealed its latest business class seats on 12 of its Boeing-777-300 fleet. Travelers will be able to enjoy the redesigned cabin on certain long-haul flights with the French airline, including a direct flight from Paris’s CDG Airport and New York’s JFK Airport come September.
Some of the luxuries on board will include meals created by French Michelin-starred chefs, a personal 17-inch high-def TV screen complete with noise reducing headphones, WiFi, and a bluetooth connection in case you want to connect any of your devices on board.
The redesigned seats in this new business class cabin will follow the 3 “F”s: full flat, full access, full privacy. Much to any long-haul travelers delight, these new full flat seats are designed to recline to make a two-meter long bed. For an easy bathroom break, all seats also have direct access to the aisle.
And sliding doors, but of course! In what is perhaps the most innovative new design on board, these upgraded seats will each come with a personalized sliding door to ensure optimal privacy for all cabin passengers.
Fly First-Class On Delta’s Latest Airbus
Delta Air Lines latest airbus took to the skies this month and is 20% more fuel-efficient than previous models. And, the new Airbus a321neo (neo: new engine option) comes with a new and stylish first-class cabin that makes for a tempting upgrade.
This new first-class experience on Delta features 20 seats made with memory foam and come with winged headrests. Passengers can purchase satellite WiFi streaming at $5/device or enjoy the in-flight entertainment on their personal 10-inch screens.
The airline’s new premium cabins will also offer travelers a bit of indulgence with their eco-conscious amenity kits by the socially conscious brand Someone Somewhere. Kits come with an eye mask and sustainability-focused products such as a lip balm, hand cream, and a bamboo toothbrush.
At the time, the only flight on this fleet is between San Francisco International and Boston Logan Airport. Beginning July 11, flights on the airbus will expand to Boston-San Diego and Boston-Denver, with select trips between Boston-Seattle starting July 20.

The seats will be offered on all of KLM’s 777-300E and 777-200 international business class flights. And on top of a revamped business class experience, a new Premium Comfort class will be added to the aircraft. KLM’s upgraded fleet are scheduled to launch in 2023.
Finnair’s New Business Class Seats For Long-Haul Passengers
Enjoy Nordic culture in the clouds. Finnair’s latest business class experience for long-haul flights features new Collins’ Air Lounge seats with a contoured shell design for maximum movement and space. When you need to rest, the seat can turn into a lay-flat bed complete with a mattress pad. And of course, the textiles and amenity kits offered on board are exclusive from Finnish luxury designer Marimekko.
Just launched this week, travelers on Finnair can enjoy a Nordic-inspired signature cocktail on board called “Northern Blush.” The upgraded meals on board the flight offer local, international, as well as Nordic flavors served on chinaware from local Finnish company littala.
