Air France winter

With what it calls “an unstable economic environment”, the Air France-KLM Group has decided for the 2012-13 winter season to stabilize its growth in capacity compared with the same period last year.  There is a minuscule increase of 0.5% on long haul operations with medium range services reducing by the same amount. 

During the 2012-13 winter season the service offered on board Air France long haul aircraft will be significantly upgraded.  This follows the re-branding of the cabin services. (See BTN 1 October

The seven Air France Boeing 747s are now all equipped with the latest-generation long haul seats in the Business cabin and offer video-on-demand in all cabin classes.  These aircraft will serve, among other destinations, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico and Montreal.

"Air France is fully mobilized and our changing capacity is a clear demonstration of the Company transformation plan's initial impact.  We are rationalizing our flight schedule to adapt it to the current economic environment while repositioning our offer to better serve our customers.  As a result, starting this winter, passengers on medium haul flights will benefit from new services, with a redesigned in-flight dining experience and greater flexibility on their trip.  Our plan is contributing to a real long-term dynamic”, stated Alexandre de Juniac, Chairman and CEO of Air France. http://corporate.airfrance.com
