Air France upgrades cabins
Air France has installed new cabins on planes serving Tokyo. Travelers on AF275 departing Narita airport on Jan. 12 were able to experience the new cabins in the Boeing B777-200 aircraft, which has three classes of 40 seats in business class, 24 in premium economy and 216 in economy.
The carrier’s Boeing B777-300ER adds first class and is available on both the Narita and Haneda routes.
In addition to the Tokyo upgrades, Air France is currently upgrading its cabins serving Osaka.
To commemorate the installation of the new cabins, the airline is holding a campaign through Feb. 29 with a prize quiz based on information in a video on its website. There are 200 prizes up for grabs.
Prizes include a pair of business class tickets to Paris, a pair of premium economy tickets, three pairs of economy tickets and 190 key rings.

Jetstar teams up with Keisei Jetstar Japan is teaming up with Keisei Electric Railway and Narita International Airport to promote domestic travel.
A prize of a pair of return tickets is offered to those who correctly answer a quiz from the three companies.
There will be three opportunities for people to try their luck.
The first is from Jan. 15 to Feb. 7, the second from Feb. 8 to March 2 and the third from March 3 to March 26.
The quiz, in Japanese only, can be found at www.keisei-cp.com/jetstar/ and the winners will be selected at random from each period.
Other prizes include five sets of original goods from Narita International Airport and Keisei Electric Railway.
Keisei recently added an additional train departure from Narita at 10:03 p.m. and pushed back the time of the last nightly departure to 10:49 p.m.
This is an effort to tap demand from travelers whose flights arrive at Narita late in the evening and who need to get to the city.
