Air France passengers can now enjoy in-flight entertainment from the moment they arrive at their seats until they disembark on select long-haul flights…19 AF aircraft, including all A380s, are so far equipped with the system, which will be gradually implemented across the entire Air France long-haul fleet.

The relaxation of rules, which follows in the footsteps of British Airways, means passengers no longer have to wait until the seatbelts sign is turned off after take-off.
