Flying for fashion week is always the most exciting adventure. I’m going to be honest and admit that it’s always so stressful planning fashion week, working on a clear schedule, trying to select and style the looks before packing everything and make sure all the logistics are correctly book to avoid any type of disorganization. Imagine how much more exciting the whole trip got but I had the chance to discover and experienced the recently launched ‘La Premiere’ cabin on Air France flights between Paris and Beirut.
I have shared few sneak peeks on my social media accounts and I had promise you a proper review. First, I want to thank the entire team of Air France Beirut for giving me this amazing opportunity, it was such a privilege. I also got the chance to internationally be the first blogger to shoot in a La Premiere suite. It was crazy!
When we think luxury and comfort, we think tailored, elegant, exceptional. The new “La premiere” suite by Air France is such a comfortable and private unit, I love how the seat transforms into a 2m bed including a futon mattress, a large pillow and such a fluffy duvet. I honestly felt I was at a luxurious hotel. The seat is extremely practical, I like that we get to have a very large table, extremely practical for me to have several items to work with: laptop, magazines, notebook, pends, mobile phone, etc. Another great part is all of the little compartments allowing us to store our belongings in an easy way, being an OCD person, it saved my life. The service was excellent and the stewart who took care of me was adorable, very attentive to my needs and very explanatory of the cabin’s facilities and services.
Wondering what I first did? I immediately changed into the pajama I was given, it was great to actually feel home. After working a little, I had a huge salad followed by a decadent dessert. I ended my flight with a little nap after watching a newly released movie. The entertainment includes so many advantages, you couldn’t get bored for a minute.
I also want to salute the French touch and savoir-faire, the attention to details, the fabrics and materials used for the environment (leather, tweed , suede) making the whole experience very fashion and very custom-made for any type of client. The little fashion girl in me was jumping around with excitement. I landed in Paris with a rested mind, ready to rock fashion week! Air France, have me as your guest again please!
