I jumped at the opportunity to fly Business Class on the Air France 787 on a recent work trip to Egypt and Europe. This flight was between Cairo and Paris – only 4.5 hours but plenty of time to check out the Air France Business Class product. Being a new aircraft the Boeing 787 features the flagship Air France Business Class seat.

This business class flight review covers check-in, the Saudi Business Class lounge at Cairo Airport, boarding, take-off, the Air France in-flight service, the amenities provided and the business class seat which converts into a lay flat bed.

This flight was filmed on AF 567 from Cairo to Paris. See below for more details.

Jing M says:

Great video as always – thank you very much for sharing your travel experiences

Kareem Mahmoud says:

Is there no taxiing or takeoff montage?

George Zaharoff says:

Handsome gent! Great report. Thank you for posting. I am going to say you are Greek. When I first looked at you I thought “he looks Greek.” And then I saw you look up Athens and thought “99.9% chance he is a Greek because only a Greek would look up Athens on a Cairo-Paris flight.”

I always wondered why airlines use their int’l planes for flights to Cairo, Beirut, Tel Aviv, Moscow whereas flights to Athens is their European fleet.

Unknown Traveller says:

1, 2, 1 should be the way all business classes are configured. I really dislike the 2, 2, 2 setup.

I would like to vouch for all teenagers and let it be known that there’s no way an atlas and an outdated instant messenger would be entertaining for hours.

fry888chip says:

Keep up the great content Dennis! Love your videos and the subtle humour!

MBP 1 says:

Hi Dennis, I notice you always touch the plane when boarding. This is something all of our family does after my youngest daughter started doing it many years ago. If shes not with us we still ‘touch the plane’. Love your videos.

Bryan tan says:

Please do ANA or Japan Air Premium economy. They have lounge access in Narita Airport and there not many video.

Patrick Pick says:

Great Video/review as always. Shame you didn’t take the full meal, would be interested in their wonderful French entree’s.

tom m says:

A very helpful/informative video………thanks for posting it & keep up the great work.

Noah Bowie says:

Fantastic video

louis boulter says:

Same as KLM Word Buisness Class but with a different colour palate

Mitchell Gibbs says:

Is there a reason why you touched the outside of the plane before you stepped on board? Superstition?

Geraint Atherton says:

I wonder if the floor light is there in case you drop something?

Speedbird1 FLY says:

As ever great video. Could I please feature your channel on mine? Comments on my videos are always welcome

The Supreme Dragon says:

Thank you for such a good video. I know I can count on you for informative and entertaining videos.

Adrian Nelson says:

Hmm no issues, are you sure it was Air France? Nothing but trouble each of the 5 times I’ve flown with them :/

K Ben says:

Cheers Dennis for a brief yet detailed review. I watched Sam Chui before but now you are easily my favourite aviation reviewer. Please do more economy reviews, majority of air travel happens in the economy sector and I would never travel business or first class even if I had the money unless for a special occasion. Keep up the good work, good on ya mate.

DaD says:

Good to see a business class seat with a push down arm rest for a bit extra width and I would be interested to find out which airlines offer this feature Great video Dennis 🙂

One World Flyer says:
