With these 85 films, some of which are translated in up to 9 languages*, Air France has the largest cinema in Europe (in terms of the number of films).

Every month, close to 500 hours of programmes are available in each cabin: films, TV series, French and international news, games, language learning courses and a juke-box of 200 CDs.
