Air France has the same concept for its European route network:
- "Affaires": Business class
- "Tempo Challenge":full fare economy
- "Tempo": discounted economy
Regarding cabin service, Challenge and Affaires get the same catering, but seating is 2-2 in Affaires and 3-3 in Challenge (albeit on the same seats). Tempo is not exactly no frills, it does have a basic catering service.
On the ground, Challenge customers get access to the AF lounges at CDG.

When i was sittin' on the ground a few Thursdays ago waiting to finally leave CDG ( to CPH) on an old 737, the Dane next to me and I were laughing over the rather patheticness of the cabin. There were the bulkhead dividers I guess for the different classes, but really, the two classes above mine (El Cheapo Tempo) didnt seem that much different. I think they only slapped on a plastic-y covering to make three seats into "two". Really, I should have thought for AF they would have had a bit more plush service for business class. And whats with those interiors? My GOD!
