Oh no, you misinterpreted it ConcordeBoy. That's what Air France is planning on doing to KLM and Alitalia, hence those lines in the song!
Seriously though I would like to know what connection that song has with AF and also why the heck they have those two DOWNRIGHT FRIGHTENING lines in the song... It's rather peculiar...I'm not a Francophobe and I don't particularly dislike AF the way some users here do... but those lines are downright strange. Perhaps an AF crew member or fan here could clear this up for us?

Actually translation can be difficult even with a modern language. i found this out asking my French treacher to translate something and what he told me was completely different from what I thought it sounded like. He told me that things don't always translate right. Sometimes there really are no English words for some stuff as well.

The fact that you would post such rubbish is completely absurd! What are the grounds for having posted such a horrid and taudry lyric..... This is nothing that Air France would publish... If you recall Air France has used Edith Piaf, and Nana Mouskouri among others for their title themes... Please provide a writer or chanteuse for this song!

ConcordeBoy, if you took more than 30 seconds to check out the site you provided, you will see that what you provided (and have implied) is utter nonsense.
Also, it's quite funny you say you have seen this on other websites, yet a search of those lyrics on Google only bring up a single site -- the exact same site for some mediocre 'band' where it is clear these are lyrics from one of their albums.
So I would be most interested to hear about where you heard this song during Concorde tests?
Or is this thread simply another way to kick the boots into the French?
