Air France announced today that it will begin A380 service to Miami this winter, starting on December 1.
The switch to an A380 means that a First Class cabin will be available on the route (not available on the current aircraft flying the route), and the number of premium seats offered by Air France will more than double. Overall seat capacity will increase by 39.2 percent.
Lufthansa started A380 service to Miami in 2011.

THE AIR FRANCE A380, FOR OPTIMUM TRAVEL COMFORT
The Air France A380 has 516 seats in four cabin classes: 9 seats in La Première, 80 seats in Business, 38 seats in Premium Economy and 389 seats in Economy. On board, all passengers enjoy optimum travel comfort and an exceptionally spacious cabin. 220 windows fill the cabin with natural light and changing ambient lighting helps to cross time zones without feeling tired. In addition, six bars divided between the cabins enable passengers to meet up during the flight.
With five decibels less noise in the cabin compared to industry standards, the A380 is a particularly quiet aircraft. It also features the latest technology at the service of entertainment and comfort. External images are broadcast live via three cameras housed in the front, underneath and at the rear of the aircraft, which are broadcast live throughout the flight. Finally, Air France’s superjumbo is the first to have a special area dedicated to arts and culture.
