Abidjan soon to be served by the Air France A380!

Quote:
During the 2014-2015 winter season (26 October 2014 - 28 March 2015), Air France will serve Abidjan by Airbus A380 with 3 weekly frequencies, and the other flights will be operated by Boeing 777-300 (4 weekly frequencies). This flight will be operated during the daytime on the way there and at night on the way back.



After operating a special flight by A380 on 28 January 2014 for the International Forum for Investments in Côte d’Ivoire, Air France confirms its ambition to make Abidjan the second destination on the African continent to be served by its superjumbo after Johannesburg and the first in French-speaking Africa.

With a strong level of growth, the Côte d’Ivoire aims to become the main hub and gateway to West Africa, a market representing over 300 million inhabitants.

Flight times by A380 (in local time)

From 26 October 2014 to 28 March 2015, flights on Monday, Friday and Sunday will be operated by A380 and on other days by Boeing 777-300.

AF 702: leaves Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 13:45, arrives in Abidjan at 19:10
AF 703: leaves Abidjan at 23:25, arrives at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 6:40 the following day

The Air France A380, for optimum travel comfort

The Air France A380 has 516 seats in four cabin classes: 9 seats in La Première, 80 seats in Business, 38 seats in Premium Economy and 389 seats in Economy.

On board, all passengers enjoy optimum travel comfort and an exceptionally spacious cabin. 220 windows fill the cabin with natural light and changing ambient lighting helps to cross time zones without feeling tired. In addition, six bars divided between the cabins enable passengers to meet up during the flight.

With five decibels less noise in the cabin compared to industry standards, the A380 is a particularly quiet aircraft. It also features the latest technology at the service of entertainment and comfort. External images are broadcast live via three cameras housed in the front, underneath and at the rear of the aircraft, which are broadcast live throughout the flight. Finally, Air France’s super jumbo is the first to have a special area dedicated to the arts and culture.

Aside of British Airways, are there any airlines who configured their business class seat facing backward?

Why is there a seat missing on most (not all) configurations of main decks?

As I remember, it is some kind of a security exit from the cabin crew rest area located under the floor

Unfortunately Skymark hit the news headlines for the very same reason
I definitely ain't complaining

A Japanese budget airline is facing criticism over a move to put female flight attendants in a new uniform of short mini-dresses.

Skymark Airlines, the country's third-largest carrier, faces accusations of inviting sexual harassment and treating women like a commodity.

The new uniform consists of a short, fitted 60s-style mini-dress in royal blue, the Telegraph reported.

In a satetment, trade union the Japan Federation of Cabin Attendants said: “We’re concerned that the design of this uniform may cause problems.

“The airline is saying the uniform is meant to attract more customers, but this shows the company is treating women like a commodity.”

The union's website contained posts raising concerns that passengers could take pictures up the cabin crew's skirts.

It has also questioned whether the uniform will allow the attendants to carry out their duties properly.

The airline disputed the union’s claims, saying the uniform was for a temporary promotion during the launch of Airbus A330s on domestic routes this spring.

Skymark president Shinichi Nishikubo said: “We won’t impose the uniform on any of the cabin attendants who refuse to wear it.

“It is disappointing that the outfit designed in part for the ad campaign is being seen in a distorted way.”

After all a trip to Japan wouldn't be such a bad idea for this summer. Does Skymark serve Paris? Otherwise I'm not sure I'll go.

I do agree, I also love...hmm... Skymark interior.

That's the Panam stewardess!

I wonder if the company still exist, they would have purchased a large number of Airbus A380 too.

Just for your note, in 1980s Panam did purchased some Airbus airplanes, such as A300 and A310.

This how their A380 would have looked like

Somehow I came up with several images of Panam A380.

Panam is too big to be forgotten, and it was truly the US flag carrier (a mantle that current major US airlines failed to emulate).

Enjoy the pictures
