Air France has a flight catered specifically to millennials, because apparently we need craft beer at all times
When most people fly commercially, they sink into an alternate reality of sweatpants, magazines, and uncomfortable naps. But when it comes to the Millennials of Europe, there’s now a way to fully flaunt your age-related identity as you zip through the air. Air France recently started offering a “boutique” airline experience called Joon that caters specifically to Millennials, as reported by Business Insider.
“Designed for our Millennial customers, it will offer more than just a flight and a fare, it will offer a global travel experience,” Dominique Wood said in a statement obtained by BusinessInsider.com. Joon first unveiled itself last summer, several months before its launch. Now, the airline operates flights from France to a variety of cities, including Bombay, Cairo, and Cape Town. (Joon does not operate to any U.S. cities…yet.)
On board, Joon offers a slew of “Millennial” beverages, including craft beer, cocktails, wine, cappuccinos, lemonade with Sicilian lemons, and 100% fruit vitamin-filled smoothies, according to the airline’s website.
And if photos of Joon’s “French meals” taste anything like they look, they’re a step up from typical airline food. Food includes a variety of snacks, tapas, cheeseburgers, veggie sandwiches, organic fruit compote, and ice cream — and that’s just what’s available in economy and premium economy. Business class passengers enjoy meals created by top Michelin-starred chefs and a slew of fancy alcoholic beverages.
Long gone are the days of flight attendants in tight outfits and uncomfortable high heels.
Joon allows its stewards and stewardesses to wear t-shirts and sneakers. Super chill!
While Joon offers typical in-flight entertainment via a phone app, if you want the real Joon experience, you may want to spring for the 180° immersive viewing experience. As explained on Joon’s website, customers can buy 3D glasses for €15 ($18.53 USD) and watch 3D movies on an HD screen. Not to mention, all economy passengers get a pair of earbuds for keeps. And in business class, the seats come equipped with built-in noise-reducing headsets.
Even the safety videos are Millennial-friendly.
Joon isn’t as pricey as all the above information might have you suspect. Flights start at just $60. So if you’re looking for a place to let your Millennial flag fly, maybe you should treat yo’self to Joon.
