Air France takes a bit of mystery out of flying by showing us just how airplanes (and those cushy premier class) interiors are created.

Ever wonder just how much work, effort and time goes into building an aircraft? If you’re like us, you probably think about it every time you sit yourself down in a seat on your flight, especially if you’re tucked into a plush, swanky first-class pod. Air France (via Skift) has given us the inside peek into what exactly happens to get those coveted seats/pods in place in their new La Première cabins. Needless to say the construction is meticulous, the revisions are seemingly endless and the final product after hundreds of parts are put together just so? After millions of dollar and hours of work, you get that cushy private, comfortable first class seat that you shell out your credit card (or flight points) for. Get a glimpse at the process (and maybe a new appreciation for the cost of first class!) in the video below.
