Air France A380's ancestor

Quote:
From the Breguet 'Deux Ponts' (Double-Decker) to the Airbus A380

Air France has been operating the Airbus A380 to New York since November 2009 and to Johannesburg since February 2010.

With the arrival of a fourth A380 in its fleet, Air France will offer, as from 1st September 2010, three weekly flights between Paris and Tokyo, and a daily flight as from 5 October 2010.

In 1953, Air France was already operating another double-decked aircraft, the Breguet Double-Decker.

The Sahara flying machine

On 17 March 1953, Air France inaugurated the first of its twelve Breguet 763 "Provence". They mainly served the routes between mainland France and Algeria (Algiers-Marseille-Lyon), as well as Algerian domestic routes.

Sixty years before the appearance of the Airbus A380, the Breguet Double-Decker was one of the world's first double-decked aircraft. The combi version could carry close to 12 tons of cargo and the all-passenger aircraft up to 107 passengers: 59 on the upper deck and 48 on the lower deck.

Thanks to its solid construction, this aircraft could land on rough terrain and carry heavy, bulky loads. This Sahara flying machine, the first genuine Air France freighter, transported bulky equipment destined for Algerian oil drilling platforms.

On 31 March 1971, the last Air France Breguet 763 flew for the last time between Paris and London.

The world's biggest civil aircraft

Air France's A380 is equipped with 538 seats, divided between three classes: La Première, with 9 seats on the main deck, Affaires-Business, comprising 80 seats on the upper deck, and Voyageur, with 449 seats divided between the two decks. The main deck of the A380 boasts equivalent capacity of a Boeing 777-200 and the upper deck that of an Airbus A340-300.

The A380 is the most environmentally-friendly aircraft - with less than 75g of CO2 produced per passenger kilometre - and the quietest aircraft in its category. The roomier cabin offers increased comfort and space. On board this superjumbo, Air France has innovated with special lighting ambiences that change depending on the various stages of the flight, special areas geared towards relaxation and conviviality and the brand-new in-flight entertainment system, equipped with larger video screens.

Air France has ordered 12 A380s. Tokyo is the first destination in Asia to be served by Air France's A380.

Air France crowned most sustainable

Airlines can take a lesson in sustainability from Air France who was confirmed by Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) as the leading air carrier for the sixth year running.

Efforts put in by the airliner since 2004 have paid off after winning in the DJSI World and DJSI Europe in the transport and leisure sector.

“This recognition underscores the consistent and unwavering commitment by AIR FRANCE KLM to safeguarding the environment and this we are certain reflects the sentiments of those who choose to fly with us,” Air France-KLM General Manager Paul Rombeek said.

The Montreal Gazette, October 8, 2010 :
Quote:
Airline travel takes giant stride

One double-decker Airbus A380 flight will replace two Paris-Montreal runs


By FRANCOIS SHALOM

The first commercial flight of an Air France/KLM A380 to Montreal was a bit of a fluke -a surprise double-decker trip for most of the 530 passengers aboard who touched down yesterday at 5:37 p.m.

The next one won't land at Dorval's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport until May 9 -when the French/Dutch carrier will inaugurate daily flights between Paris and Montreal on the Airbus superjumbo.

Among the 530 souls aboard was the airline's president

Pierre-Henri Gourgeon, who told reporters he made the trip to underscore the importance of the Canadian market.

In peak season, the carrier operates 64 weekly flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol and four Canadian cities -Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.

One 380 flight will replace two currently made by Air France/KLM A340s and B777s.

The aircraft consolidation will result in "considerable savings," of about 15 million euros a year, Gourgeon estimated.

Cedric Leurquin, a Parisbased Air France/KLM spokesperson, called the Paris-Montreal run the carrier's second in volume in North America behind Paris-New York. But he couldn't say how much traffic each represents.

Aeroports de Montreal president James Cherry beamed as Gourgeon called Trudeau airport "a hub of our traffic between Europe and North America."

Gourgeon said his company's joint venture with Delta Air Lines and Alitalia offers 200 weekly flights over the Atlantic and will present "many opportunities for more growth."

He added he was not overly concerned with the announcement yesterday of a partnership between Montreal-based Air Canada and United Airlines to pool resources on transatlantic routes.

He noted that Air France/ KLM signed an agreement with WestJet Airlines to route AF/KLM passengers on the discount airlines for 22 connections in Canada.

The upbeat event was in marked contrast to the history of Airbus's 380, which suffered years of production delays and disastrous cost overruns. Its first non-commercial flight to Montreal -operated by manufacturer Airbus -was in November 2007, but regular A380 traffic to Dorval next May will be two years late.

Critics also contend that most airports can't accommodate the huge A380, which relies on an outdated hub-and-spoke air travel concept where smaller airlines -and planes -feed passengers to major airports for long-haul flights. The trend, they argue, is toward point-to-point travel served by smaller but faster planes with more range.

The A380 landed 60 years and five days after the first Air France flight linking Paris and Montreal. But that maiden flight on Oct. 2, 1950, was on a Lockheed Constellation, a four-propeller-engine aircraft that made pit stops in Shannon, Ireland, and Gander, N.L. -a 19-hour trip.

Montreal is Air France/ KLM's fourth destination for its A380, of which it has four and has ordered another eight. The model's first regular route was Paris-New York service, which began last November, followed by Johannesburg and Tokyo this year.

Canada is Air France/ KLM's second largest market in the Americas after the U.S. and accounted for about $700 million in revenues last year.

Gourgeon said mergers of international airlines will continue, "reducing the number of players, which will provide more stability in the industry."

As of today, travellers can book their Montreal-Paris trip on an A380.

"I hope all Quebecers rush on to this plane," Gourgeon said.

Guide2 Midi Pyrenees, November 16, 2010 :

Air France KLM set to compete against low-cost airlines

According to French daily economic newspaper Les Echos, Air France KLM is poised to announce a plan to reorganise their domestic operations to help it compete with low cost airlines such as Easyjet and Ryanair, and the expanding TGV network.

The group is said to be planning to use four bases where it will locate both pilots and cabin crew, in an effort to cut costs and increase the number of hours planes spend in the air. The four bases in Marseilles, Nice, Toulouse and Bordeaux could be joined by a further base at Paris Orly in the longer term.

Under the new organisation, pilots and crew would start and end the day at their home location, removing the need for expensive overnight costs. Planes will operate using two crews in ‘relay’, which would enable planes to be in the air for 12 hours per day. Staff could be asked to work their full monthly permitted hours over a fifteen day period, with fifteen days off each month.

The new regime is expected to be put in place from summer 2011.

KLM is going out of this world.

KLM to Offer a New Perk for Frequent Fliers: Outer Space

Published: November 17, 2010

PARIS — In the rarified realm of airline frequent-flier perks, elite status can bring cushy upgrades, airport lounge access, priority boarding and any number of concierge and customer service benefits.

But on Wednesday, the Dutch airline KLM set a new goal for road warriors to aim for: free space flights.

The carrier, part of the Air France-KLM group, confirmed that it had purchased a handful of advance tickets for sub-orbital space flights that are expected to be offered as early as 2014 by Space Experience Curaçao, a space tourism company founded on the Caribbean island by two Dutch entrepreneurs.

“KLM supports this idea and this project,” said Gedi Schrijver, a spokeswoman for the airline. She said the airline still had to work out exactly what the criteria would be to earn a space flight ticket — which sells for $95,000. “There are many options,” she said.

Space Experience Curaçao was founded in 2009 by two Dutchmen, Ben Droste, a former commander of the Royal Dutch Air Force, and Harry van Hulten, an air force test pilot. The company, which has backing from private equity investors and Hato International Airport in Curaçao, signed a deal last month to lease a sub-orbital space plane and a pilot from XCOR Aerospace, a company based in Mojave, California, that is developing a rocket-propelled craft called the Lynx.

The Lynx has just two seats, meaning that it can carry just one passenger at a time. According to Mr. Droste, the total flight time would be about 30 minutes, with the passenger experiencing just over four minutes of weightlessness at a maximum altitude of 200,000 feet, or 61,000 meters, above sea level.

Source and full story:
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/18/bu...html?src=busln
KLM will also be responsible for promotional work and ticket sales for this small space company.

^ I guess the price tag approximates a long-haul First Class flight? So it'll take the similar # of points?

Sarkozy: Air France to launch new flights to Martinique, Guadeloupe
9 January 2011

FORT-DE-FRANCE, Martinique (AP) - Air France is adding two new weekly flights to the French Caribbean islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe, President Nicolas Sarkozy said Saturday.

Starting in November, the carrier will fly once a week from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris to each island.

Air France already serves both destinations daily from Paris' Orly Airport.

Sarkozy announced the flights as he met with officials in Martinique to talk about tourism and economic development.

The global economic crisis has severely curtailed tourism in Martinique, which received 570,000 visitors last year -- down from the 1 million that came annually as recently as a decade ago.

Both Martinique and neighboring Guadeloupe were paralyzed by violent protests two years ago amid demands for higher wages and lower food prices.

Sarkozy and first lady Carla Bruni flew to Guadeloupe on Saturday afternoon.

Thursday 27 January 2011
Press Release

Increase in long-haul capacity this summer

This summer, Air France will continue to develop its flight network to emerging markets and markets offering strong tourist potential. This rise in long-haul capacity will be supported by the launch of two new destinations served by Airbus A380.

Between 2011 and 2013, Air France’s long-haul flight capacity will be up by +6%.

Air France will launch 5 new destinations out of Paris-Charles de Gaulle:
starting on 27 March 2011, flights will operate to:

* Phnom Penh in Cambodia, three times weekly, with a stopover in Bangkok, operated by Airbus A340-300 equipped with 275 seats.
* Monrovia in Liberia, two times weekly, with a stopover in Conakry, operated by Airbus 330-200 equipped with 207 seats.
* Freetown in Sierra Leone, three times weekly, with a stopover in Conakry, operated by Airbus 330-200 equipped with 207 seats.

Starting in June, flights will operate to:

* Lima, 5 times weekly, by Boeing 777-200 with 309 seats.
* Orlando, 3 times weekly, by Boeing 777-300 with 472 seats. This service will be operated as part of the Air France-KLM Alitalia_Delta trans-Atlantic joint venture agreement under which the partners jointly operate their trans-Atlantic routes, thereby sharing revenues and costs.

These new destinations will complement the Air France and KLM long-haul network, proposing an even wider choice of destinations and direct flights, with convenient flight times allowing for fast and easy connections at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol to destinations worldwide.

Starting on 22 April, Air France will begin operating daily flights to Montreal by A380 and, as from 6 June 2011, flights to Washington.

With these new destinations, the A380 super jumbos will be progressively equipped with Premium Voyageur seats, located between the Business and Voyageur cabin classes, comprising 9 seats in La Première, 80 seats in Business, 38 seats in Premium Voyageur and 389 seats in Voyageur.

In June 2011, Air France will operate the A380 to 5 destinations out of Paris-Charles de Gaulle: New York-JFK, Johannesburg, Tokyo, Montreal and Washington.

Air France's January Passenger Traffic Up 4.8%
8 February 2011

PARIS (Dow Jones)--Franco-Dutch airline Air France-KLM (AF.FR) said Tuesday its passenger and cargo traffic in January rose from the same month in 2010.

Passenger traffic increased 4.8%, allowing a 1.1 percentage point improvement in load factor--a measure of how full an airline's planes are--to 79.2%.

In January 2010, a two-day strike of air traffic controllers in France and snowfall had disrupted activities.

Air France-KLM said passenger seat revenue per kilometer leveled off and the political situation in countries such as the Ivory Coast, the Sahel region, Tunisia and Egypt hurt revenue.

Cargo traffic was up 2.4% in January, while load factor was stable at 64.3%.

Air France-KLM net loss narrows in 3rd quarter
Wednesday February 9, 2011, 1:33 pm EST

PARIS (AP) -- Air France-KLM says its net loss narrowed to euro46 million ($62.7 million) in its fiscal third quarter, down from a euro295 million net loss a year earlier when the global economic slowdown caused a record drop in passenger traffic.

Air France-KLM says the October-December quarter was "strongly disrupted" by air traffic control strikes in France and heavy snowfall that forced the closure of airports in Europe and the U.S.

Europe's largest airline in terms of passenger traffic said in a statement Wednesday that its will not achieve a targeted increase in earnings this year. It blamed security issues in North Africa as well as weaker-than-expected revenue in the fourth quarter driven by overcapacity by rivals.

Air France-KLM To Boost Capacity by 5.7% In 2011 Summer
21 February 2011

PARIS (Dow Jones)--Air France-KLM (AF.FR) said Monday it will increase the group's capacity by 5.7% this summer compared with a year earlier, though the increase will be only 2.6% higher than the summer of 2008, before the financial crisis, the company said.

The airline group said it will increase capacity, or available seat kilometers, by 6.5% on long-haul flights and by 2.9% on medium-haul flights.

The capacity of Air France alone will rise 6.1% during the summer compared with the same period in 2010.

"Although global gross domestic product has surpassed its pre-crisis levels, Euro-zone GDP remains below the pre-crisis level, with the result that the increase in capacity on the medium-haul network is more moderate [up 1.8%], but is sufficient to meet the expected rise in connecting traffic with the long-haul routes," the company said in a statement.

At 0819 GMT, shares of Air France-KLM were down 0.8% at EUR12.37, while the CAC-40 index was down 0.3%.
