Good news !
it seems that l'Avion is doing well with 78% of load factor, it is pretty good for a 6 month airline...

The 78% load factor was during June only...

Digressing from the thread a little bit, I looked at the article (thanks!) and those seats looked really familiar. They are LH's previous generation business class seats, aren't they?

PS Are they really planning service to BOS? I really wish some of those all-business airlines come to my home airport...
