Air France unveils onboard family couches

It is no secret that travelling with kids can be very hard and stressful. That is why Air France has decided to make family trips a bit smoother and hassle-free with their new Cosy Joon cabin setup.

Since November 2018, passengers flying with France‘s flag carrier have the option to use their new modular seats that can be easily transformed into beds or play areas for children.

The new setup is available on specific rows of four seats on the Joon Airbus A340 aircraft. To transform two adjacent seats into a cosy couch the Joon crew converts the child’s seat headrest into an additional seat to fill the space between the rows of seats.

The younger passengers enjoy a surface area of approximately 105 x 76 cm. An overlay mattress and a seat belt extension are also provided by the crew.

A total of 16 Cosy Joon seats are available on each Joon long-haul flight. Eligible families with one adult and two young children or two adults and two young children can book them up to 55 hours before flight departure in the same way as a standard seat. The extension is recommended for kids from 2 to 5 or 6 years old.

Joon is the new generation of travel by Air France. Launched in December 2017, it has carried three million customers in Europe and worldwide from Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
