Upgrade Business Class Award To La Première

On select transatlantic and Asian routes, Air France specially operates aircraft with its amazing La Première cabin. These luxurious First Class seats can be upgraded by cash at the check-in counter prior to your departure for a fee ranging from $1,500 up to $2,000. Therefore, if you want to try out this cabin, you can save a lot by doing it this way. For example, a one-way paid fare between Paris to New York generally costs up to $10,000 one way.
