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


Here's a paper from Flight International about Rochet and its launching of L'Avion.

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...
