You guys know I am a huge advocate for all things millennial, and apparently, so is Air France! Air France recently launched a boutique airline that specifically caters to millennials called Joon. Now, we can die happy with overpriced champagne, access to YouTube, and organic fruit.
Joon is not only recognized as a low-cost carrier though. Air France considers the airline a lifestyle brand that’s focused on incredible design and offering the newest in technology.
So what’s different about millennial travel? Well, lots of things. Here’s what sets Joon apart:
- Passengers (business or premium class) are welcomed with a glass of champagne or fruit juice.
- They serve craft beer and signature cocktails, both with roots in France.
- In-flight entertainment offers shows like Viceland, and in-flight streaming shows series and YouTube channels.
- You can rent a VR headset. Yes, really.
- Joon flight attendants wear casual outfits made from 60% recycled plastic, and classic white trainers.
- They serve organic food and organic coffee.
Joon Business Class
Business class is no joke. The seats fold into beds and they each come with a personal reading light attached to the chair. Finally, the days of going blind from someone’s overhead light are over. Watch movies on a 15.6-inch touchscreen and noise reduction audio set. And lastly, don’t forget about your welcome kit: socks, slippers, a shoe bag, and wellbeing accessories, which include Clarins gel fondant, Vallebelle pillow mist, an eye mask, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and earplugs.
Joon Premium Economy
Premium economy features seats with a generous recline, amazing legroom (99cm compared to the average 70cm), adjustable footrests, and 13.3-inch HD touchscreens. Everyone gets a complimentary meal (including economy) and you can also pay to upgrade your meal or add a la carte items to your meal. Every meal is gourmet and is designed by a French chef. Can you say fancy?
Joon currently flies to European destinations including Oslo, Rome, Naples, Istanbul, Berlin, Barcelona, Porto, and Lisbon, with plans to begin serving Bergen, Norway and Budapest, Hungary in October 2018.
I searched for a flight myself from LAX to CDG just to see the pricing. I was actually surprised with how well priced their premium economy was. However, the economy seating didn’t seem that special to me, so I would recommend the premium economy. Business class was a little too pricey for me, though still do-able.
Would you consider taking a trip with Joon?
