Re: Air France new millenials subsidiary is called Joon

Yes, only the pilots are air france staff.
Air France, where the pilots salary is function of the speed and weight of the A/C (authentic).

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

French military may be....Air France was operating a lot of cargo flight for them, they just have 2 777F nowadays ( I think), so capacity to support deployment abroad is quite limited.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

I remember a while ago someome depicted the poor performance of ABB while flying from Paris to Lagos...with a screenshot attached to demonstrate how ABB was bad in terms of on-time departure... Well take a look at their Abu-Dhabi operation for British Airways...not that bad! https://www.flightradar2...

Better to keep the A/C on the ground than losing money.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

It is not a confirmation, it's an estimate...and beside the loss, there's also profit, generated by the ACMI operation, so let's put some perspective on this. As there is revenue, line of credit will not disappear overnight, other big operator face as well issue with credibility i.e. Air France or L...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Yes, but ABB had enough A/C's to operate their business this summer, reason why a pay by the hour A/C will be left on the ground, and the other 3 will be prefered for the daily operation.
