Airbus A380 on London to Paris route

AIRBUS A380 enthusiasts, and normal passengers, are in for a special treat this summer when Air France puts the world’s largest commercial aircraft on its London to Paris route on summer weekends from Saturday 12 June.  The A380 has been assigned to flight numbers AF1980 (departing Paris Charles de Gaulle 10:05) and AF1981 (departing Heathrow 12:50) during all summer weekends from Saturday to Monday, plus all Fridays in July.  Whilst it will significantly raise capacity during a peak period for the airline it is also a very cost effective way of introducing the aircraft to a much larger number of both flight deck and cabin crew.  Air France currently operates three of the double-deckers on the Paris – New York and Paris – Johannesburg routes and has a further nine on order. www.airfrance.com
