SeatPlus is Air France’s extra legroom/comfort product, giving 10cm or 4″ of extra legroom during flights. So far, it’s been available on Air France Long Haul flights.
However, it’s now available on Short Haul and Medium Haul flights too, with SeatPlus mainly targeting exit row seats. This includes flights from Paris to as far as Israel and North Africa.

The cost of it depends how long your flight is:
- €10 per seat and per flight if the duration is less than or equal to 1 hour and 30 minutes
- €15 per seat and per flight if the duration is between 1 hour and 35 minutes and 2 hours and 30 minutes
- €20 per seat and per flight if the duration is greater than 2 hours and 30 minutes
If you are purchasing a return ticket, the price per segment will be based on the shortest flight time.
Members of Air France and KLM Flying Blue programme that hold Gold or Platinum status can reserve seats marked in the SeatPlus area for free.
The buy up is subject to availability, and can be done online, through check in kiosks within France or at Air France counters at some airports.
The long haul version of SeatPlus remains at its current pricing:
- €50 per seat and per flight if the flight is less than or equal to 9 hours,
- €70 per seat and per flight if the flight is over 9 hours.
It’s interesting to see how airlines monetises their assets – and Air France is seemingly trying to make an extra few Euros for extra seats. Whilst it may be a few pennies extra – it could be worth it for the longer medium haul flights, as those Air France A319s – whilst not overflowing space, a little bit more never hurts….
